Tweet of the Day: Libs go ballistic over Bruce Jenner’s ‘coming out’

Tweet of the Day: Libs go ballistic over Bruce Jenner’s ‘coming out’

You read that right. During his much-anticipated interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, one-time Olympic legend Bruce Jenner officially “came out” — and prompted liberals who had tuned in gleefully to tune him out for all time. What had them so upset was not his confirming the fact he is transgender (although it’s hard to imagine that anyone who has seen a picture of him in recent months would harbor any doubt). Rather, it is that he “came out” as a Republican and, to a lesser degree, a Christian.

When asked about Barack Obama addressing LGBT rights in his State of the Union, the 65-year-old former Olympic athlete said that didn’t affect him much.

“I’ve always been more on the conservative side,” Jenner said.

Sawyer, looking shocked, asked if he identifies as a Republican, to which Jenner answered, “Yes.”

Jenner said he is a Christian as well.

The news was not well-received by the left, who expressed their dismay on Twitter after the piece airedr:

So much for the voices of tolerance and acceptance.
