Toon Lampoon editors pledge to mock Caitlyn Jenner’s political career “without going all JK Rowling on her”

An emergency strategy meeting has been held at The Lampoon office in the wake of Caitlyn Jenner’s recent gubernatorial announcement. As such, The Lampoon’s editors have stated that the august satire publication will do its best to reduce Jenner to a weeping, self-loathing wreck “without, you know, making fun of… well, you know.”

Writers for The Lampoon agreed that they would not follow in the footsteps of popular children’s author and amateur mystery writer JK Rowling. Rowling has gone on record to state that trans women only transition in order to get into women’s bathrooms and the governor’s mansion of California.

This follows her claim that, six years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Ron briefly considered having an affair with Padma Patil but decided he’d not be able to cope with concealing the indiscretion.

In an interview with The Lampoon, a spokesperson for the Jenner campaign team stated that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians alumnus was looking forward to The Lampoon‘s coverage.

“Caitlyn is as enthusiastic and prepared as she is brave and beautiful,” a spokesperson for her campaign told our reporter. “We’re ready to run a strong campaign: to put our foot on the gas and drive right through whatever obstacles are in our way, whether it’s a Prius, a Lexus, or a 69-year-old woman.”

Our reporter also asked whether Jenner was ready to join figures such as Candace Owens and Milo Yiannopoulos as the entire Republican Party’s “my {insert minority here} friend”.

The Jenner campaign replied that Jenner was looking forward to not being attacked by the American right wing for her gender identity. Instead, the campaign spokesperson said, she was relishing the thought of instead being attacked from the left, for being a literal car crash of a human being.
