Earlier this year, Caitlyn Jenner surprised pretty much everyone by announcing her bid to be the next governor of California, and fans have been wondering why daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner haven't publicly spoken out about it.

While the news prompted a significant online backlash, due in part to her previous support of Donald Trump, her close family, including daughters Kendall and Kylie, have steered clear of commenting.

In an interview with CBS This Morning, Caitlyn revealed that she actually instructed her children not to answer any questions related to her governor campaign, or share anything on socials.

When asked if she wanted to engage her family in the campaign, Caitlyn replied, "As we all know, politics can be a pretty tough business okay?," adding that "people have come after me for my whole life."

She then explained that she had spoken with her children and instructed them not to get involved with her campaign, saying, "I did speak with all my children and I said, ‘Hey, I don’t want one tweet, I don’t want you—this is my deal'.

"I said if anybody asks any questions in the media — because obviously they are in the media — I just said, say ‘no comment,’ address your comment to me."

This comes as Khloe Kardashian recently clarified her relationship with Caitlyn following rumours of a rift between them. In an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians [16 April 2021], Khloe explained that the pair were on better terms.

"I talk to [Caitlyn's friend] Sophia [Hutchins] very seldom and Cait probably every blue moon," the 36-year-old said of her relationship with Caitlyn, 71. "It’s just because we’re busy, it’s COVID. There’s no beef."

Fair enough.
