THE View hosts have slammed Caitlyn Jenner’s run for California governor – as it's revealed that she’s getting help from Trump advisors.
Jenner has been a longtime Republican and is hoping to replace Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom in a recall election.
The former Olympic athlete was initially advised by ex-Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale when she was considering running, according to the New York Times.
Parscale served as the senior adviser for data and digital operations for Donald Trump's 2020 campaign, but announced in September that he was stepping down to deal with personal issues.
An unimpressed Joy Behar urged on The View that the ex Keeping Up With The Kardashians star "should take a seat – someone with credentials should take on California."
But Sara Haines replied: "I would take a celebrity over MTG, Josh Hawley. Just because you grew up in politics doesn’t make you up for the job anyway."
Speaking about Jenner's big political push on The View, Ana Navarro said: "I think it’s great we’re having a discussion about LGBT trans rights – a big topic.
"I think breaking the glass ceiling is a good thing, a trans Republican may change some Republican minds."
However Sunny Hostin chipped in: "I think we’ve had enough of [the] reality stars running for government we’ve had enough over the past four years.
"[There's also] the fact that she was supportive of Trump until her community was attacked and unsupported by her president."
Hostin pointed out that Jenner has only dabbled in politics over the years, and hasn't – until now – shown any huge interest in government.
She claimed that "Caitlyn was an infrequent [voter], and didn’t vote in the 2016 election".
Jenner also "only voted nine times in 26 state elections for someone who hasn’t really participated in our democracy … woefully unprepared to run for governor or to run anything."
Meghan McCain said: "She needs to decide if she's a Trump Republican or a mainstream Republican.
"I don’t take this that seriously. I don’t think that it’s on the job training -California is a mess.
"I think there are serious serious problems with that state that is for a person who doesn’t need on-the-job training."
Jenner announced the news of her run on an official "Caitlyn for California" website.
"California has been my home for nearly 50 years. I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality," the website read.
"But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people. Sacramento needs an honest leader with a clear vision."
