Caitlyn Jenner on the Congressional Baseball Shooting: 'Liberals Can't Even Shoot Straight'

Caitlyn Jenner told a republican gathering that "Liberals can't even shoot straight". There's insane people in the world - we know that ... Her comments have been the centre of much criticism, after Jenner joked "liberals can't even shoot straight" in response to the attack.

She went on to say the U.S.is "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". "We have to minimise that type of stuff". But as far as people that were injured, it's an absolute shame.

The longtime Republican addressed Tuesday's GOP baseball practice attack that left House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise critically injured.

Jenner was referring to 66-year-old James Hodgkinson, the now-deceased man who ambushed a group of Republican congressmen last Wednesday morning while they practiced at a baseball field in Arlington, Virginia.

Jenner was asked nearly immediately about the news of the week: the shooting at a congressional baseball practice that wounded members of Congress and Capitol Police officers. The dinner was closed to the press, but video was uploaded to Facebook Live by a College Republican group in Virginia.

'Fortunately, the guy was a really bad shot.

The comments caused a stir on Twitter, with many criticizing the remarks by Jenner, a transsexual.

Jenner has revealed that she voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election, though she has spoken out against him for withdrawing protections for transgender students in public schools.
