Caitlyn Jenner has vowed to “cancel cancel culture” on the unlikely day that she is elected governor of California.
The reality TV star, who’s running a deeply unpopular campaign to unseat governor Gavin Newsom, made the hilarious pledge in a flurry of tweets on Thursday (27 May).
After slamming Newsom as “corrupt career politician” who’s out to “buy” votes, Jenner turned her attention to supporters of cancel culture, otherwise known as consequences for one’s actions.
“When elected Governor of California, I will CANCEL, cancel culture and wake up the woke,” she claimed.
Confusing syntax aside, Caitlyn Jenner’s confidence in her ability to win the recall election is largely misplaced given that only six per cent of Californians would even consider voting for her.
A recent poll by UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies and the LA Times found that that only 36 percent of voters actually want to get rid of Newsom, and Jenner has by far the lowest support of all the four prominent Republican candidates.
This seems to matter little to Jenner, who continues to baffle voters by alternately highlighting and obfuscating her hardline Republican views in rambling, vacuous TV interviews.
Shortly after sending the tweet Jenner’s name began trending online as people ridiculed both her desperate attempt to win over right-wing voters and her misguided belief that she could ever succeed.
In her latest interview the former Olympian shrugged off reports that her own family do not support her campaign.
Speaking to CBS This Morning on Wednesday (26 May), Caitlyn Jenner insisted she didn’t want her family involved in her political run anyway.
“I did speak with all my children and I said, ‘Hey, I don’t want one tweet, I don’t want you – this is my deal,'” she said.
“I said if anybody asks any questions in the media – because obviously they are in the media – I just said, say ‘no comment,’ address your comment to me.'”
