Caitlyn Jenner, who recently accused trans swimmer Leah Thomas of ‘not being good for women’s sports‘ has weighed in on Elon Musk’s Twitter purchase, saying she’s ‘100% behind him’. 

The former Olympian, who is now a Fox News contributor, made the comment during a discussion on America Reports.

She claimed that the reason the ‘left’ is ‘attacking’ the Tesla CEO is that they’re ‘scared to death’.

She said: “This is about money, power and who is in control of the information flow here in our country. I am 100% behind Elon Musk and what he’s doing.

“When [former] president Trump was sworn into office honestly… The media had no idea what to do with this guy.

“He was a disruptor, he was going to change things from the good old boys club that was happening in Washington DC, Elon Musk is coming from the outside.”

Jenner continued by saying Musk is ‘a very smart man,’ before adding: “And he has been affected by what is happening in social media, so he decided you know what, I’m going to come in here and see what I can do about buying it.

“I am 100% [in] support of what he’s doing.

“But he is an outsider. Nobody knows what he’s going to do. The left is scared to death of him so that’s why they are attacking him.”

It comes as the former Olympian sparked uproar by expressing support for Disney’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill.

Appearing on Fox Business Live, Jenner was asked if she agreed with banning the teaching of gender identity to young children, to which she responded: “Absolutely. I’m a big supporter of Ron DeSantis and what he’s doing. I’m a parent.

“I have been in control of my children’s destiny and what they learn in school – not some math teacher. I can teach those lessons.

“So yes, I am in support of Ron DeSantis and what he’s done there. I’m disappointed in the backlash he’s gotten – especially from Disney.”
