Transgender actor and reality TV personality Candis Cayne endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Saturday.
In an interview with PEOPLE magazine, the 44-year-old male-born trans icon praised Clinton, telling the publication, “I’ve been a fan of Hillary’s for a long time … I think she’s doing amazing work.”
Cayne, who was born Brendan, added Hillary is “going to push for rights for trans people,” stating, “that’s a really big thing.”
“The way society is feeling right now, it could be very dangerous for a lot of my trans brothers and sisters,” he said. “That only gets exasperated and becomes a higher issue if somebody who is leading our country doesn’t respect who we are.”
Cayne and I Am Cait star Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner, will discuss their differing political views on this week’s episode of the E! docu-series, which follows Jenner as he transitions from a man into a woman.
In a newly released preview of the upcoming episode, Jenner engages in a heated political exchange with members of his trans entourage — including Cayne.
On Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, Jenner tells his gender bending posse: “I’m not a big fan because I think of his macho attitude. I think he would have a hard time with women when he doesn’t even realize it, and it doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be good for women’s issues.”
Jenner adds: “I think he would be very good for women’s issues.”
The 66-year-old former Olympian athlete was not as kind in his analysis of Cayne’s candidate of choice.
“Oh my God, yes, I would never ever ever vote for Hillary,” he says in the preview. “We’re done, if Hillary becomes president — the country is over.”
Citing Clinton’s handling of Benghazi and her use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State, Jenner concludes Hillary is a “f–king liar” and a “political hack.”
“You want a person that’s going to lie to you?” Jenner asks his entourage.
