Caitlyn Jenner on GOP baseball shooting: 'Liberals can't even shoot straight'


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".
