The reality star has been heavily criticised for an off-hand comment again…
Speaking at the College Republican National Committee’s convention last week, Caitlyn Jenner claimed that “liberals can’t even shoot straight”.
The Olympic champion made the comment when asked for her take on the mass shooting which took place at a GOP baseball practice at the beginning of last week, reports the Washington Examiner.
Gunman James Hodgkinson opened fire on several Republican members of Congress on 14 June, injuring four people before being shot dead by police.
“Nobody deserves what happened out there. There’s no justification,” Caitlyn said during a Q&A session.
“There are crazy people. We have to minimize that type of stuff.”
She added: “As far as the people that were injured, it’s an absolute shame. You just want them to recover.
“Fortunately the guy was a really bad shot… liberals can’t even shoot straight.”
Naturally, the comment was heavily criticised on Twitter.

Disgusting; why are we paying attention to this person anymore?

This is about as petty and as mean spirited as you can be. A dishonorable person.

Hodgkinson’s attack appears to be politically motivated as he participated in the campaign for Senator Bernie Sanders in last year’s presidential election, and more recently signed up to a Facebook group called Terminate the Republican Party.
What’s more, it’s been reported that the FBI found a list of names in Hodgkinson’s pocket, which included names of Republican Congressmen.
Meanwhile, Caitlyn Jenner has been widely criticised by the LGBT+ community for her continued to support of the Republican Party, especially considering some of their views on LGBT+ rights.
