Joy Behar Compares Caitlyn Jenner's Support of Ted Cruz to "Jews for Hitler"

Jenner's political views continue to draw backlash

Liz Raftery

Joy Behar is just as baffled as everyone else in America about Caitlyn Jenner's support for GOP presidential hopeful Ted Cruz.

Referencing Cruz's abysmal record on LGBT issues, Behar said on Tuesday's episode of The Viewthat "Transgenders for Cruz is like Jews for Hitler."

Behar's co-host Raven-Symone, also expressed incredulity about Jenner's endorsement of Cruz. "When you go through that much of a change so quickly, especially in the public eye, I think, personally, you should have taken a hiatus or break and stepped back and really lived in the transgender world, not just go right into it," Symone said.

Why you'll cringe during the I Am Cait premiere

Jenner, who came out as transgender last year, has been rather vocal when it comes to the 2016 election, and has been on the receiving end of harsh backlash for her views. On a recent episode of her reality show I Am Cait, she called Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton a "f---ing liar," and has said that she believes GOP frontrunner (and Cruz's rival) Donald Trump "would be very good for women's issues."
