The reality TV star's Republican leanings were on display during a talk she gave Friday at the College Republican National Committee's convention. The team was preparing to face off against congressional Democrats in a charity game two days later.

When someone asked Jenner about the GOP baseball shooting and deceased suspect James T. Hodgkinson being a big fan of Bernie Sanders, she had quite the response. Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured, and remained hospitalized.

She went on to say the "doing a better job" with environmental issues, and claimed the Paris Accord was "just a way for the rest of the world to ruin us economically".

"As far as the people that were injured, it's an absolute shame".

"Fortunately", she added, "the guy was a really bad shot". Another said Jenner's comments "seem counterproductive".

And that is when she delivered the controversial joke, which elicited a roaring laughter from the crowd in attendance: "Liberals can't even shoot straight". The moderator noted that President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited Griner and her wife in the hospital bearing flowers.

Another Twitter user called Jenner out for her 2015 vehicle accident on the Pacific Coast Highway that killed Kimberly Howe, aged 70.

"She did her job".
