California Republican gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner was the target of a joke by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel. 

During a segment on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” the comedian poked fun at Jenner’s appearance on “The View” last week and referred to her as “Trump in a wig.”

“Are we sure that isn’t Donald Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner wig?” Kimmel asked as he posted side-by-side images that showed them doing similar facial expressions. “The resemblance is uncanny.”

Kimmel proceeded to call the rest of Jenner’s interview “nonsense,” insisting the reality star is in the governor’s race only for attention and naming her “Caitlyn Jenner Car-crash-ian.”

Jenner didn’t stand pat and took to Twitter, where she responded to Kimmel’s jokes about her in his monologue. 

“Last night @jimmykimmel called me Donald Trump with a wig,” Jenner tweeted. “He obviously believes that trans women are simply men with wigs on. Where is the outrage from the left or LGBT community? Being WOKE must be optional if you are a Democrat.”

Jenner continued to call out Kimmel in a follow-up tweet, including one where she scrutinized him for wearing blackface during a Comedy Central skit years ago.

“Speaking of @jimmykimmel he also received a pass from the WOKE on his use of black face and racist actions. Hypocrite,” Jenner tweeted.

The reality star has been making the interview rounds in the media for her campaign. Jenner recently sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity to discuss her potential policies.

Talk radio host Clay Travis is speaking out about the Tokyo Olympic Games and the decision by Simone Biles to withdraw from the gymnastics final.

Travis appeared on the Fox News program Special Report with Bret Baier Tuesday night.

“I think this is a massive issue for the U.S. Women’s gymnastics team that she has decided to quit in the middle of competition,” Travis said. “I have never seen this happen, I don’t think it’s heroic, and I don’t think she should be praised for it.”

Several vital figures came to the defense of Biles, including U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee CEO Sarah Hirshland, who said that she was proud of Biles as a person and an athlete.

Travis criticized Biles’ decision, noting that he felt terrible for her teammates and the alternates who would have stepped up and took her spot.

“If she did not want her spot, she should not have started the competition,” Travis said. “I think quitting during the middle of the competition is the foundational effort level that we expect from all of our Olympic athletes; we want them to give their all.”

Travis co-hosts the Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show, which is heard on more than 400 affiliates nationwide and distributed by Premiere Networks.

Grant Stinchfield, a host on Newsmax, didn’t mince words as he claimed to be “happy” that Team USA Women’s Soccer and Men’s Basketball lost their Olympic openers in Tokyo.

The self-proclaimed ‘#MAGA Champion’ according to his Twitter bio said he was openly rooting against “Megan Rapinoe and her merry band of America-hating female soccer player.”

He continued by calling Team USA Men’s Basketball a “collection of whiny over-paid social justice warriors,” and a “bunch of anthem kneelers” who are “very hard to root for.”

Justin Baragona – a contributing editor for The Daily Beast – had to recap online.

Baragona pointed out that it wasn’t just Newsmax celebrating America’s defeat either.
