‘Tolerant’ Liberals Start Insulting Bruce Jenner When He Says He’s Conservative

During his interview with Diane Sawyer that aired on Friday night, Bruce Jenner revealed that he’s questioned his gender identity his whole life, that he’s considered suicide, and that he took hormones for the first time in the 1980s — about 30 years ago and before he decided to marry his most recent wife, Kris Jenner.

But nothing shocked the public quite like his admission that he — gasp! — thinks the Constitution is important!

The subject of politics came up after Sawyer asked him how he felt about Obama being the first president to use the word “transgender” in a speech:

“I will certainly give him credit for that,” Jenner responded. “But not to get political, I’ve just never been a big fan. I’m kind of more on the conservative side.”

Sawyer then outright asked Jenner whether he’s a Republican, to which he replied:

“Yeah. Is that a bad thing? I believe in the Constitution.”

All hell broke loose:

Some people even went so far as to say his being conservative was enough for them to withdraw their support:

The response to his sharing something as simple as his political beliefs definitely shows that he was right.
