Caitlyn Jenner did her first public interview since announcing her candidacy in the coming California gubernatorial recall with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

Deadline relayed the dialogue between the candidate and host where one of the main topics in the interview surrounded immigration. Considering the state Jenner’s running in, it will be a hot topic for candidates. Jenner made it know where her stance lies on the matter, telling Hannity she’s all for a wall.

“We can’t have a state; we can’t have a country without a secure wall. You have two questions here,” Jenner said. “One is stopping people from coming in illegally into the state. And then the second question is, what do we do with the people that are here?”

“We are a compassionate country, OK? We are a compassionate state. Some help, I mean, some people we’re going to send back, OK? No question about that. But I have met some of the greatest immigrants into our country.”

The next talking point that Hannity asked Jenner is about being a transgender role model.

“For me as a transwoman, I think role models are extremely important for young people. Trans issues people struggle with big-time, our suicide rate is nine times higher than the general public. And for me to be a role model, for them, to be out there. I am running for governor of the state of California; who would ever thunk that? We’ve never even had a woman governor.”

JIMMY KIMMEL

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel is nearing his 20th season of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” However, in an interview with Howard Stern, the comedian stated he wasn’t sure whether to continue hosting his nightly talk show after his current contract expired.

However, if it’s up to ABC executives, they would like to continue their relationship with Kimmel. In an interview with Deadline, Craig Erwich, President of ABC Entertainment and Hulu Originals, wants to continue working with Kimmel for a long time. 

“First of all, we want to stay in business with Jimmy for many, many years to come. He’s the king of late-night; he’s the longest-serving host of any current late-night shows,” Erwich said.

“He had a really great year last year, beating Fallon in adults 18-49 for the first time ever, so as long as Jimmy wants to be on ABC, we’d love to have him.”

Despite ABC wanting to hold onto Kimmel for the foreseeable future, his contract is up next summer, and if he does decide to depart, the network would need to figure out how to replace him.

Kimmel pondering a possible departure from late-night isn’t the first he’s considering retirement. In 2019, Kimmel admitted that he had thought about leaving; however, ABC bosses urged him to return for another three years, allowing the show to reach 20 seasons.

“We don’t see it that way,” Psaki said.

King failed to mention a botched U.S. drone strike that killed 10 civilians and no ISIS-K terrorists.

Psaki was asked about the “dysfunctional” U.S. relationship with China.”We do see the relationship through the prism of competition. China is a competitor, but it’s not a country we want to have conflict with,” Psaki said.

MSNBC host Joy Reid believes the intense media coverage of the Gabby Petito case derives from something called “missing white woman syndrome.” 

Reid made the comments on The Reid Out Monday, citing other cases that get less attention but admitting that Petito’s family deserves answers.

“It goes without saying that no family should ever have to endure that kind of pain,” Reid said.

The term “missing white woman syndrome” was coined by the late Gwen Iffil who used it to illustrate the public’s fascination with missing White women like Laci Peterson or Natalee Holloway.

“But the way this story has captivated the nation has many wonders, why not the same media attention when people of color go missing?” she said.

Reid spent much of the segment discussing missing Black and Native American individuals she claimed to have never heard about in the same way as the Petito case.
