<p>In an interview with &ldquo;Caitlyn&rdquo; (formerly Bruce) Jenner for Wednesday&rsquo;s NBC <em>Today</em>, news anchor Natalie Morales protrayed the reality TV star being a &ldquo;staunch Republican&rdquo; as controversial, but not Jenner&rsquo;s transgender activism.</p>

<p>Morales explained that in the upcoming season of I Am Cait, Jenner &ldquo;is seen embracing womanhood, developing strong friendships with and learning from other transgender women, who she calls her girl squad.&rdquo; Then the reporter fretted: <strong>&ldquo;Something that hasn&#39;t changed, Caitlyn is still a staunch Republican, which led to some heated exchanges during the group&#39;s bus travels across the country.&rdquo;</strong></p>
