Tomi Lahren condemns ‘despicable’ attacks on Caitlyn Jenner at CPAC

Conservative pundit Tomi Lahren defended Caitlyn Jenner after the California gubernatorial candidate was hit with transphobic verbal attacks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) over the weekend. 

“The attacks on [Jenner] are despicable,” Lahren said in a tweet. “I’ll go to bat for her every single time and if you want to take my ‘conservative’ card for it, take it and shove it. Your mob is no better than the Left’s and in fact, it’s uglier.” 

On Saturday, a conservative activist posted a video of himself following Jenner around at the event in Dallas, referring to the athlete turned celebrity turned politician as “Bruce” and “a sick freak.” 

Earlier this year, Jenner announced a run as a Republican for governor of California. 

“The American Dream grew up here. Yet, career politicians and their policies have destroyed that dream. It’s been locked away, closed, shuttered, left in the dark, burned down,” Jenner said as part of the announcement. “The government is now involved in every part of our lives. They’ve taken our money, our jobs, and our freedom. California needs a disruptor — a thoughtful disruptor.” 

The announcement from the former Olympic athlete and reality TV star drew comparisons to former President Trump’s rise to fame and political ascension to the White House.

“He was a disrupter when he was president,” Jenner said during a recent appearance on ABC’s The View. “I want to do the same thing.”
