Caitlyn Jenner was a guest co-host on The View yesterday, where (big surprise!) she defended Trump and downplayed the Russia scandal.
Whoopi (refusing to say Trump’s name, as usual) asked if HE has met with her regarding LGBTQ rights, as she once suggested.
“No. He’s been busy lately. I understand that.
I do a lot of political things. I would say 80, 90 percent of it is behind the scenes. I get more accomplished that way.
I thought he would be more outspoken when it came to LGBT issues… He was very open about it in the beginning.”
Goldberg praised Jenner for always being “gracious,” to which the Olympian said,
“Most people have never met anybody who’s trans. And if I do have a personal encounter with somebody, I want it to be a positive one.”
She was also hesitant to discuss the ongoing Russia scandal, but did clearly state that she is not bothered by concerns the country meddled in the election and colluded with the Trump campaign. Jenner argued,
“Politics is a dirty business. Let’s be honest… Hillary Clinton was out there looking for dirt on Trump. Trump was looking for dirt on Hillary. This is smear campaigns.
Everyone’s talking to everybody. Recently, Trump was over there [in Europe]. And I think it’s good we have communications [with Russia].”
Sunny Hostin asked Jenner whether it bothers her that
“instead of being a public servant and serving all of the United States, he may be serving his own pocket.”
“Honestly, I think, no, it doesn’t bother me. We have to get somebody in there who can straighten things out. He’s shaken a lot of things up since he’s been in there and I think from that standpoint, that’s good. Give the guy some time. It’s been what, six months? Let’s give the guy some time.”
In three and a half years form now, we get to decide again. If it didn’t work out, let’s get him out and get someone else in. If not, if by that time he’s lowered taxes, he’s helped the economy, he’s created jobs, he’s done all these things that are good for the country, then we can re-elect him.”
She did remain silent when the discussion turned to sex. During a hot topic about foursomes, some of the panelists were willing to admit which celebrities with whom’d they’d want to sleep with. But Jenner wouldn’t play along.
“I can’t even imagine fantasies like that in my head. I could count the number of women I’ve been with on one hand… I am so much a prude.”
