When Sawyer asked if Jenner cheered when Obama became the first president to even say the word “transgender” in a State of the Union address, the 65-year-old replied that he “would certainly give him credit for that.”

“But not to get political,” Jenner continued, “I’ve never been a big fan, I’m kind of more on the conservative side.”

“Are your a Republican?” Sawyer asked in response, to which Jenner replied, “Yeah! Is that a bad thing? I believe in the constitution.”

“Do you think that would be an unsettling thing for some people in the conservative wing of the party?” Sawyer asked.

“I’ve thought about that,” says Jenner, adding that neither political party has a monopoly on understanding.

Sawyer then asked Jenner if he would go to Mitch McConell and John Boehner and ask them to help champion this cause. Jenner responded that he “would do that in a heartbeat, yes, and I think they would be very receptive.”

Child finds loaded gun in House Speaker John Boehner’s Capitol bathroom

A child reportedly found a loaded Glock handgun in the bathroom suite of Republican House Speaker John Boehner in what is just the latest of a string of Capitol security missteps, Roll Call’s Hannah Hess reports. But this is not an isolated incident. In January, a member of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s security detail left a loaded gun wedged into the seat-cover dispenser in a Capitol Visitor Center bathroom. And in April, a janitor found a loaded Glock in plain sight while cleaning the Capitol Police headquarters.

Third time in recent months that Capitol security officers have left loaded guns in publicly accessible areas

How the fuck does this pass for anything but complete bullshit?

How is Mitch McConnell allowed to start another sentence? America and American media has lost the ability to see through made-up rhetoric.

So for every scientist with peer-supported empirical evidence regarding climate, Mitch can find some random asshole to say the opposite.

Anyone ever heard of “apples to apples”? 

This is the Senate majority leader and his approach to the most important issues of the day: I can find a lobbyist to refute your facts.
