The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Some pro­gram­ming of note: On Mon­day, the very as­tute Fox News host Tucker Carl­son es­sen­tially makes his for­mal de­but in the coveted 8 p.m. time slot pre­vi­ously oc­cu­pied by Bill O’Reilly for two decades. The net­work says Mr. Carl­son’s first guest is none other than “Olympic Gold Medal­ist and au­thor” Cait­lyn Jenner, who has re­mained out­spo­ken on a va­ri­ety of sub­jects fol­low­ing a very pub­lic de­but as a trans­gen­der woman two years ago. The left-lean­ing news media was mes­mer­ized, but they have an on­go­ing po­lit­i­cal chal­lenge here. The for­mer Bruce Jenner is also a Repub­li­can.

Fox News says that the guest “will in­clude her per­spec­tive on Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s ad­min­is­tra­tion, the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal cli­mate and di­vide in Amer­ica, as well as her thoughts on how to bring Amer­i­cans to­gether.”

That can be a tricky nar­ra­tive and sub­ject to in­ter­pre­ta­tion, of course. In a re­cent ABC News in­ter­view, the 67-year-old celebrity ad­vised Mr. Trump that if he doesn’t give the LGBT com­mu­nity “equal­ity and a fair shot — I’m com­ing af­ter you.”

So we shall see. But wait. There is also a new book ar­riv­ing Tues­day. The re­al­ity TV star has penned a mem­oir ti­tled “The Se­crets of My Life” — cur­rently ranked No. 1 in the “rich and fa­mous,” “trans­gen­der” and ”sports and out­doors” cat­e­gories at Ama­zon. A six-city book tour will fol­low.
