Caitlyn Jenner only had the nicest things to say about Kanye West but never said she was surprised by his recent antisemitic, pro-Nazi rhetoric.
December 3, 2022

Jenner is a paid Fox News contributor and doesn’t seem to mind playing the Trans Best Friend for a network that deliberately endangers the LGBTQ+ community.

Apparently, she’s happy to cover up for her antisemitic former son-in-law, too – a guy whose pro-Nazi rhetoric is so awful, it was too much for even Alex Jones and Elon Musk.

Jenner appeared on Fox’s America’s Newsroom show on Friday, where the “news” anchors allowed the completely unqualified Jenner to spout off about the possibility that Los Angeles might reinstate a mask mandate and proclaim about masks, “I don’t think they work very well.”

At about three minutes in, the discussion turned to West, now known as “Ye,” who recently posted a symbol of a swastika inside a Star of David. It’s just the latest in West’s antisemitism, including statements that were edited out of Tucker Carlson’s fawning interview.

The obvious question is what Jenner and the rest of the family has known about this member of the family. It speaks volumes that Hemmer didn’t. Instead, he asked, “What is going on?”

Jenner had only good things to say about West, but she never said this was a side she had never seen before, that his pro-Nazi sympathies are something new nor that it didn’t represent the West she knows. Instead, she suggested we should all overlook it because other than that, he’s a great guy!

JENNER: I’ve known, obviously, Kanye for a long time. He has always been very, very good to me. And I just wish him well. I just – I want Kanye to do well.

Jenner said she has not talked to him “in the last few months, especially when all this stuff has come out.” But she continued to praise him, with the suggestion that he should have just kept his antisemitic thoughts to himself.

JENNER: I just wish him the best. He’s got challenges and I just hope him the best. He’s always been very good – he’s a really nice guy when I’ve been around him my whole life, well, for the last 10 years. And I just wish him well.


I don’t blame [anyone] for being offended with that. I’m offended by it, OK? But Kanye is Kanye.

I have to conclude his antisemitism has long been known to the family and they have condoned it. Or worse.
