Olympic champion and Kardashian clan member Caitlyn Jenner filed the paperwork to run for governor of California, recently. The move drew her considerable flak on social media. She became a laughing stock again on April 24 after she tweeted about California releasing "dangerous criminals" and called out "Gavin’s District Attorneys."

"This is horrible and also avoidable. Gavin’s District Attorneys across California are releasing dangerous criminals back on to our streets. Enough is enough. #RecallGavin," Jenner tweeted pointing out at her opponent, California Governor Gavin Newscom.

Caitlyn Jenner to run for Governor of California, Twitter says 'no thanks' as she takes a dig at Gavin Newsom

 



 

As soon as her tweet came to light, people started slamming her and telling her that there is nothing like Gavin's district attorneys and that they are elected by country voters. One Internet user said, "Governor of California does not appoint district attorneys. They are elected by county voters. You're a dangerous moron wholly unqualified to be governor."

Ted Lieu tweeted, "Dear @Caitlyn_Jenner: District Attorneys are elected by voters, not appointed by Gov @GavinNewsom . Also, do you know how a bill becomes a law? Here is a cool Schoolhouse Rock video for you to educate yourself. https://youtu.be/FFroMQlKiag Do you know what “veto” means? Or “budget”?"



 

 



 

Another tweeted, "Could a candidate for governor be unaware that CA District Attorneys are not "Gavin's''-- but the choices of voters in individual [email protected] did not endorse current SF DA @ChesaBoudinreferenced here by @Caitlyn_Jenner; he endorsed opponent @SuzyLoftus." While one person wrote, "Another example of an outsider not knowing how American institutions work. The Governor does not appoint District Attorneys." 



 

 



 

One person said, "You might want to learn about the position you are running for: The Governor of California does not appoint District Attorneys. Swing and a miss!" While one said, "You killed someone and faced no consequences. District Attorney’s in CA are locally elected, not appointed by the governor. You don’t know what you are talking about and would make a horrible Governor."



 

 



 

 

Soon, Caitlyn replied US House rep Ted Lieu saying, "Ted, that kind of condescending tone is whats wrong w/ politics. Of course I know DAs are elected, but as the CEO of the state, the buck stops with Newsom. If you want to defend the status quo then fine, but if you want to talk solutions to the crime in our streets, call anytime."
