Sean Hannity welcomed the former decathlete on his program calling her a “brand new Fox News contributor”, Caitlyn Jenner started by telling why she joined the news station, saying, “As you might know I am trans, but I’m not a trans activist. That’s just one part of my life. There’s so much more to me.” She continued, “In the midterms coming up, LGBT issues are going to be very big issues and I’m looking forward to covering those, but there’s so much more to me than that.”
Sean Hannity then discussed the new Florida legislation signed by Governor Ron DeSantis, the law prohibits teachers from discussing about sexuality and gender identity with kindergarten to third grade children. Hannity emphasized that parents of the children can “opt their kids in woke classes after school”, but first they need to prioritize educating them “with the basics first”. To this Caitlyn Jenner replied, “I’m a common sense person and that’s what you call common sense. I am all for parental rights.”
Caitlyn Jenner raised ten children and currently has twenty grandkids, she won the decathlon in 1976 Olympics and attained fame by starring in the hit reality TV show called “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”. Earlier, she ran unsuccessfully for California’s governor in last year’s recall election.
