After Trump, folks are suspicious about electing celebrities as politicians. Caitlyn Jenner recently announced that she is running for the governor of California, and OJ Simpson does not think she is qualified.

Caitlyn is running as a Republican.

I came here because I knew that anyone, regardless of their background or station in life, could turn their dreams into reality," Jenner wrote when announcing her run. "But for the past decade, we have seen the glimmer of the Golden State reduced by one-party rule that places politics over progress and special interests over people.

OJ had this to say:

"Well, I can only think she was talking about the Olympics when she won the decathlon, the gold medal."

He continued: "A gold medal is qualifications to be governor? That means Sugar Ray Leonard, he won a gold medal then. Edward Moses won a gold medal then. Even the late Leon Spinks won a gold medal, and I don't think he would've qualified by winning a gold medal to run for governor-I'm just saying"
