Donald Trump shocked the entire world when he was elected president, so it’s no surprise that more celebrities are considering following in his footsteps and entering the political realm. On Sunday, Caitlyn Jenner revealed that she’s considering a run for the California Senate:
“I have considered it, I like the political side of it,” she said of a potential run for a Senate seat in California. “The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me. Over the next six months or so, I [have to] find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside, kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talk to anybody? Or are you better off from the inside. And we are in the process of determining that.”
Jenner would run as a Republican; and, unsurprisingly, she said that a big focus of her campaign would be to change the liberal perception that the GOP is anti-LGBT:
“The perception of the Republican party is that they’re all about rich white guys trying to make money,” she said. “I would hope in the next generation that we can change the perception of the Republican party, and make it the party of equality.”
Of course, California is decidedly blue. It seems unlikely that Jenner would stand a chance running as a Republican in the Golden State – even as a transgender candidate. Because according to liberals transgenders – or blacks, or Hispanics, or women – aren’t supposed to be Republican. God forbid anyone think for themselves, right?
This isn’t the first time Jenner has discussed a potential future in politics. She also addressed the topic on CNN Tonight in April:

Whether Jenner ultimately decides to run or not, one thing’s for sure: her unconventional politics are sure to continue pissing off liberals everywhere.
