Caitlyn Jenner was too lazy, dumb & defeatist to vote in the 2020 election

4th Annual Women's March LA

Voter disenfranchisement is a real thing, so I’m not going to go full-throttle smug-lecturer about voting and civic responsibility and all that. I wish everyone would vote, and I wish everyone had easy access to voting. It is a civic responsibility and as I get older, I have less and less respect for people who refuse to vote when their votes are not the ones being suppressed. Especially in the last two election cycles. How could you watch the catastrophe unfold over the past five years and think “nope, still apathetic!” So… that’s Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner is running for governor of California through CA’s complicated recall process. Caitlyn is a big Republican and she supported Donald Trump for a time, and she now employs a lot of former Trump staffers. And… she didn’t vote in the 2020 election.

Before Caitlyn Jenner launched a campaign for governor of California last month, she hadn’t been all that politically active. In fact, she said in a new interview, she didn’t see the point in voting as a California conservative in the most recent presidential race. But now she feels the state needs her help.

Speaking to CNN’s Dana Bash in an interview that aired Tuesday morning, Jenner said she didn’t cast a ballot for former President Donald Trump in 2020, despite her Republican background and despite having turned to some of his former officials to help with her own campaign.

“I didn’t even vote … Out here in California, it’s like, why vote for a Republican president? It’s just not gonna work. I mean, it’s overwhelming,” Jenner, 71, said. She continued: “It was voting day and I thought, ‘The only thing out here in California that I worry about, which affects people, is the propositions that were out there,’ and I didn’t see any propositions that I really had one side or the other. And so, it was Election Day and I just couldn’t get excited about it. I just wanted to play golf so I said, ‘I’m not doing that.’ ”

Asked why she expected people to be excited for her own campaign, Jenner joked, “‘Cause I’m cute and adorable.”

Speaking with Bash, Jenner acknowledged that some of Trump’s own staffers now worked for her — but said that the overlap had nothing to do with her support, or lack thereof, for the former president.

“I’ve never even talked to Trump about any of this stuff. We’re in that post-Trump era. I am very fortunate. I know people in the Republican Party … honestly some of the best people in the Republican Party have jumped on board to help me with this program,” Jenner said. She added that who her campaign staff had worked for before was of no concern to her, provided they were skilled at their jobs.

“It makes no difference,” she said. “They work politics, you know, and that’s what they do. If Ted Cruz had gotten elected and Trump didn’t, they would have probably worked for Ted Cruz.”

[From People]

Everyone thinks their vote doesn’t count until their state flips. For decades, Virginia was the bastion of the Old South and all of our statewide office-holders were Republicans. And then the demographics began to shift and Democrats started running better and smarter campaigns. Now VA isn’t even purple, it’s reliably blue. I’m sure there were a–holes in Georgia saying that their vote didn’t count last year too, but look what happened. So yeah, California is actually the GOP’s special project. They want to overtake that state and they’re making inroads in congressional races and local elections. I mean, it’s not that I want Caitlyn to vote and she’s clearly a f–king moron, but I’m just pointing out how stupid and defeatist it is to actually argue “my vote doesn’t count.” I honestly can’t believe Cait is giving up golfing 24-7 for this “running for office” sh-t.

    Ugh. Why isn’t there a law that says you have to have voted in at least the last 3 elections to run for office?

    • pottymouth pup says:

      interesting that, with how rarely she votes, she hasn’t been purged from voting rolls . . .

    • Dee says:

      Wish there was a law that says “Reality TV stars cannot run for public office.”

    • Joan Rivers says:

      EXCEPT the voting officials say she DID VOTE.

      Then her people said she meant she didn’t vote for Pres.! Just other people.

      She can’t even LIE correctly.

  2. Tulipworthy says:

    When you are voting in an election, you are not just voting for the top office. You are also voting for ballot measures, local representatives and judges.

    • AMA1977 says:

      This, so much. I live in Texas, and my liberal ass gets out to vote because it’s not just about the top of the ticket. I had high hopes last time, but we didn’t quite get there for Joe. However, we’re closing the gap rapidly (R by 16 points in the 2012 presidential election, 9 points in 2016 and +/-5 in 2020) and we will flip, the state’s urban centers are growing and younger people are overwhelmingly more progressive.

      CJ should be ashamed of herself running for office when GOLF was more important to her than her responsibility to vote in the last national election. She’s a dillettante and should be roundly ignored.

      Also, pure snark, but how many filters are there on that desert/coffee cup pic??? She looks like she’s got a smoke screen between her and the camera.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Amen!! I am in Texas too and I know that it’s changing and it’s changing rather quickly than other states. I am appalled at people who don’t vote! When I am speaking with someone and they are bitching about matters regarding political issues, if they answer me as to having NOT voted, I quickly tell them they have zero rights to bitch about the political climate since they didn’t vote. It’s my way of shutting them down as it makes my blood boil!!

    Caitlyn’s just dumb.

  4. Lily P says:

    she just sucks SO m u c h .

  5. Marjorie K. Margel says:

    Only weirdly, the records in California show Caitlyn DID vote in the 2020 election.
    Did she not remember? Or is this a Brad Parscale scheme to show how Caitlyn is too hip to care?
    Either way, she is currently in last place at 6 percent …..

    • Desert Lizard says:

      How sad that she even has 6 percent.

      • Indywom says:

        She would have enough kids to give her six percent but even they are smart enough not to vote for her. I think she just wants attention because no one had been paying her any until now. Can she just fade back to irrelevant again?

  6. Lara says:

    The thing is, people looked up her voting records (you can see if someone voted, but not who/what they voted for) and she DID vote in the 2020 election. So she’s so dumb she forgot she did that?

    As if this family could get any more embarrassing.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      Or she’s lying so she can do this whole dance around supporting Trump that she’s doing in those quotes

      • molly says:

        Searching voting records is extremely easy to do, so I’m not sure why she lied about it. I mean, if she’s dancing around a Trump vote, I know WHY she did it, but I don’t know why she thought she could get away with it.

  7. Ari says:

    What a dumb thing to say if she’s campaigning. Why would anyone vote for her if she herself claims that their vote doesn’t count?

  8. Grant says:

    “Because I’m cute and adorable”…? BARF.

    • Desert Lizard says:

      In her world of Kardashian values, that is the most important thing I guess.

  9. Ann says:

    I saw her being interviewed about this a couple of days ago. She was cagey when asked about whether Biden was legitimately elected. Ugh.

  10. MsIam says:

    Lucky California. *eye roll*

  11. Ann says:

    Her point that her vote doesn’t count in California is actually a good argument to remove the electoral college.

  12. Renee says:

    I don’t understand why people with the opportunity to vote don’t do it….like Caitlyn or Colin Kaepernick. I don’t get it.

    Also, Caitlyn is trash.

    • MM2 says:

      They have very different reasons. Caitlyn would rather spend her time golfing than vote for anything on the ballot (more than just the president on there), but Kaepernick had different reasons.
      He explained: “You know, I think it would be hypocritical of me to vote,” Kaepernick told reporters. “I said from the beginning I was against oppression, I was against the system of oppression. I’m not going to show support for that system. And to me, the oppressor isn’t going to allow you to vote your way out of your oppression.” (Nov 2016)

  13. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    I witnessed part of her interview with Dana Bash, and I must say Caitlyn is as vapid and shallow as the rest of the her family. She also clearly isn’t very intelligent. A literal know- nothing regarding policy and law.

    Also- lay off the fillers, Caitlyn. It’s waaaay overdone and now you have a bloated meat-face.

  14. Lizzie says:

    It’s just all excuses, no chance for my guy to win and I don’t care about the proposition’s. I didn’t think I could have less respect for someone in that family yet I do.

  15. elfie says:

    She is so willfully stupid it makes me sick. She is the epitome of arrogant white privilege, couples with a massive, clueless egotism. The more she talks the more I despise her.

  16. LarkspurLM says:

    #GFY Caity. Love, a California native and voter.

  17. L4frimaire says:

    This seems more publicity stunt than campaign, but the Hill newspaper indicated that records say she actually did vote, so is she being completely honest about it or maybe got a ballot but never mailed it? . She is no where near qualified, not that thst stops anyone, and this recall is just annoying.
