The election of President Donald Trump has certainly moved the needle on the conventional background of American politicians.
Trump, who was resoundingly elected over career political nightmare Hillary Clinton in November, is the first U.S. President to have neither served in the military or previously help office, and is considered by many to be on of the more unconventional Commander in Chiefs that the nation has seen. His rousing success has certainly opened the floodgates for a number of other non-traditional would-be politicians as well, including Detroit’s own Kid Rock, and American singer and songwriter whose possible candidacy has caused temper tantrums from both Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer.
Now, yet another non-traditional candidate could be heading for a senate run, and this time, the unconventional tagline barely scratches the surface.
“Olympic gold medalist and transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner is the latest celebrity to reveal she has considered launching a run for Senate, telling radio host John Catsimatidis she is in the process of determining her future in activism and politics.
“’I have considered it. I like the political side of it,’ Jenner, who is a Republican, told Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York.“’The political side of it has always been very intriguing to me. Over the next six months or so, I gotta 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 talking to anybody? Or are you better from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that,’ she said.
“’Yeah but I would look for a senatorial run,’ she continued.
“Jenner told CNN’s Don Lemon in April she would ‘seriously look at a run for office.'”
The saga of Caitlyn Jenner came at a time when former President Barack Obama became suddenly obsessed with the nation’s transgender population.
Caitlyn, née Bruce, was one of the most well-known transgendered Americans of all time, completing a transition from male to female amid a media circus. Shortly afterward, President Obama took on a wild agenda that included holding American public schools hostage by withholding government funding should the institutions refuse to allow all bathrooms and locker rooms to be gender-fluid. Americans as a whole roundly rejected the absurd and dangerous idea both in Obama’s decree and with their wallets, as a massive boycott of the similarly-stanced Target company cost the retailer billions of dollars.
