The conversation was aroused when Diane Sawyer pointed out that President Barack Obama was the first U.S. President to ever say the word “transgender.” Bruce says he certainly credited him for that but that he doesn’t always agree with the democratic party. “Are you a republican?” Sawyer asked. “I believe in the constitution,” Bruce said. “I’ve always been on the more conservative side.Is that okay?” Jenner asked.
Diane Sawyer was noticeably surprised by Bruce’s political party as were likely most liberals and other members of the gay, lesbian, and transgender communities due to the fact that Republicans have not been on recognizing rights for the gay, lesbian, and transgender communities.
