As she enters the home stretch of her doomed gubernatorial campaign, Caitlyn Jenner once again reminds everyone that 45 years ago she was an Olympic gold medalist. So why not send him some money?
Yesterday Jenner tweeted a link to her fundraising page with the caption: “A lot has changed in the United States since I won gold at the 1976 Olympics, but one thing still should. stay the same: our love for this country. I am a patriot and will always fight for California.
Perhaps the biggest irony here is that Jenner, who is worth around $ 100 million, is tweeting about her deep commitment to the state of California from a hotel room 8,100 miles away.
The 71-year-old is currently in Australia to complete a two-week quarantine before filming an appearance on Big Brother VIP, for which she was reportedly awarded $ 500,000.

According to Politico, Jenner raised just over $ 400,000 in total during her campaign. But most of that money comes from outside donors, “suggesting that his national ID card hasn’t translated into a wave of California support.”
Among its biggest donors is Angus Mitchell, a suspected LGBTQ ally, son of famous hairstylist Paul Mitchell, who donated $ 32,400 to his campaign.
And now the responses to his fundraising tweet …
“I will always fight for California…” as long as there is a film crew to document it! #cluelesscaitlyn

Winning a gold medal 45 years ago (!) Is not the same as running a state. You are out of your league here!

“I will always fight for California.”
Your complete lack of public service record, relevant experience and involvement in local communities has determined this to be a lie.

It’s up for debate, but you might actually be better at going around in circles than trying to run after public office. Go back to your hanger !!

How can you fight when you don’t even vote. Lord help us!

No, thank you, Mrs. Jenner. I support you as a human being on his way; I find your political point of view appalling.

A recent poll by the University of California, the Berkeley Institute for Government Studies and the Los Angeles Times found that Jenner is currently only polling 3%. This is down from 6% a few months ago.
She says she doesn’t believe in polls, telling reporters earlier this month: “Honestly, I’m not concerned about polls. I guarantee you I’m in the lead.
