When Donald Trump ran for president, he didn't run for president to be president. He ran for president because his TV show's ratings were floundering, and he needed to get a lot of attention for himself to prop up the name.

A former Trump advisor dismissed Caitlyn Jenner's run for California governor as 'a joke,' report says
  • Several political experts have rejected Caitlyn Jenner's run for governor in California.
  • According to Politico, one former Trump advisor called her campaign "a joke."
  • Another source in Los Angeles who works in entertainment and politics said "it's a publicity push."
Several political experts bashed Caitlyn Jenner's run for governor in California in a new Politico report published Friday.

Sam Nunberg, an advisor to former President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, disregarded Jenner's candidacy as "a joke."

Mike Madrid, a Republican consultant, told Politico that Jenner's bid "isn't a real campaign" and is just meant to "promote" and "monetize" her.

Some compared her run to that of Trump's five years ago, arguing that Jenner, a former reality TV star and Olympic gold medalist, is a celebrity outsider seeking public office to boost her relevancy.
