The conservative transgender woman was joking, but making fun of whom?
Caitlyn Jenner was a speaker at the College of Republican National Committee gala on Friday, June 16.
Her speech has been met with controversy after she joked about the left-wing assailant who sent Republican Representative Steve Scalise to the hospital with serious injuries.
“Liberals can’t even shoot straight,” Jenner joked and received laughter and applause.
The comment was captured on a Facebook Live stream, but has since been deleted.
Her speech, according to Gay Star News also condemned the act of violence.
"Nobody deserves what happened out there,’ she said. “There’s no justification for it.”
“There’s crazy people in the world — we know that. We have to minimize that kind of stuff. But, as far as the people who were injured, it’s an absolute shame. Fortunately, the guy was a really bad shot.”
Some in social media didn’t take her humorous approach lightly.
“Will and Grace” star Debra Messing called Caitlyn’s joke “disgusting.”
