Caitlyn Jenner has gotten herself into hot water following a comment she made about last week's shooting at the congressional baseball practice. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was critically injured in the attack, and three others were wounded, but Jenner joked that at least "liberals can't even shoot straight." Understandably, the internet is not happy.

Jenner's comments on the incident began in a way more appropriate manner: "Nobody deserves what happened out there. There's no justification for it...Fortunately, the guy was a really bad shot." Obviously, the next line of her "joke" did not sit well with many people, and so to Twitter they went.

Hopefully Jenner clears the air soon. There's far too much terrible stuff happening in the world for people to spend all their energy voicing outrage against a celebrity, rather than a politician.
