California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner slammed late-night host Jimmy Kimmel after he called Jenner “Trump in a wig.”
During his show on Thursday night, Kimmel celebrated the end of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” which ran for 20-seasons across 14 years and inspired 10 spinoffs.
“They said Seinfeld was a show about nothing, but the Kardashians really showed them,” Kimmel said. “I think all of season eight was Khloe buying a bikini top.”
Kimmel then set his sights on Jenner, who, when asked recently by “The View” host Joy Behar if “Donald Trump won the election and not Joe Biden,” responded, “I’m not going to get into that. That election is over with.”
“Are we sure that isn’t Donald Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner wig?” asked Kimmel. “She’s just trying to get attention. Caitlyn Jenner has a better chance of being the next Batman than she does governor of California. She knows little to nothing about anything, really.”
On Friday, Jenner called out Kimmel, the Left, and the LGBT community.
“Last night @jimmykimmel called me Donald Trump with a wig. He obviously believes that trans women are simply men with wigs on. Where is the outrage from the left or LGBT community? Being WOKE must be optional if you are a Democrat,” Jenner tweeted.

Jimmy Kimmel previously mocked Jenner in early May when the former Olympian appeared on Sean Hannity to discuss the mass exodus of people from California.
“My friends are leaving California,” said Jenner. “My hangar — the guy across — he was packing up his hangar, and I said, ‘Where are you going?’ And he says, ‘I’m moving to Sedona, Arizona. I can’t take it anymore. I can’t walk down the streets and see the homeless.’”
Kimmel responded on his show, “This is how well Caitlyn Jenner understands the plight of everyday Californians here in LA. … Ah, homeless people: can’t walk around them, can’t fly over them. Is it transphobic to call a trans person an ignorant a**hole? Or does calling that trans person an ignorant a**hole — even though she happens to be a trans person — show that we don’t discriminate against ignorant a**holes, no matter what their gender orientation? It’s a tough one. I don’t know, I guess we’ll let the Internet decide tomorrow.”
Comedian Bill Maher also mocked Jenner’s bid for California governor and expressed dismay that Jenner would be running as a Republican given the GOP’s stance against transgender ideology.
“How about this for news: Caitlyn Jenner is running for governor. I know you think of her as a reality-show star, but come on, people change,” Maher said, as reported by The Daily Beast, which denounced Maher’s quip as “transphobic.” “She is trans, rested, and ready. She’s got a great slogan: take the ‘sack’ out of ‘Sacramento.’”
