Caitlyn Jenner Slams Jimmy Kimmel For Calling Her Trump In A Wig


California Republican gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner hit back at late-night host Jimmy Kimmel after he called her “Trump in a wig.”

Kimmel compared Jenner to the former president during his Thursday night show while poking fun at her interview earlier in the day on ABC’s “The View.”

“Are we sure that isn’t Donald Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner wig?” Kimmel asked while side-by-side images showed them making similar facial expressions. “The resemblance is uncanny.”

Kimmel went on to call the rest of Jenner’s interview “nonsense,” claiming the reality star is in the governor’s race only for attention and dubbing her “Caitlyn Jenner Car-crash-ian.”

“Caitlyn Jenner has a better chance of being the next Batman than she does governor of California,” he said.

Jenner, a former Olympic gold medalist, slammed Kimmel over his comments in a series of tweets on Friday, accusing the host of being insensitive to the LGBT community.

“Last night @JimmyKimmel called me Donald Trump with a wig,” the reality TV star and transgender activist wrote. “He obviously believes that trans women are simply men with wigs on. Where is the outrage from the left of LGBT community?”

She also took a dig at “cancel culture” and “woke” culture, which she has vowed to target if elected governor, writing, “Being WOKE must be optional if you are a Democrat.”

Jenner went on to call out Kimmel in subsequent tweets, including one where she criticized him for wearing blackface during a Comedy Central skit years ago.

Kimmel took a break last summer from hosting his show amid controversy over the resurfaced sketch. Kimmel later apologized for his impressions of Black celebrities.

The late-night host’s latest comments came after Jenner likened herself to Trump during her interview on “The View” this week.

“He was a disrupter when he was president,” Jenner said on the ABC program. “I want to do the same thing.”
