Caitlyn Jenner's Glam Style

Caitlyn Jenner was a busy lady this week, with a media blitz that began Monday on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show and continued through Wednesday's episode of "The View."

The transgender reality star was promoting her new memoir, "The Secrets of My Life," and freely gave out more, from a potential run for public office to a potential secret golf game with President Donald Trump.

Here are five things TooFab learned about the trans star:

She'd 'Seriously' Consider a Run for Public Office

Jenner shocked the world on Tuesday night when the reality star, once best known for appearances on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," would consider becoming a politician.

"Now I have no more secrets, they're all out," Jenner said. "I would have to look, over the next year or two, look and see, can I do a better job on the outside or am I in a position now that I can do a better job for my community on the inside."

"If I find it's on the inside, I would seriously look at it," Jenner added.

She Doesn't Regret Voting for Trump

Jenner was asked about her decision to back Trump and Republicans -- a political party which has a historically awful record of supporting minority groups -- on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," "CNN Tonight" and then "The View" on Wednesday morning.

Her answers were a lot of the same, but perhaps best stated when asked by Meyers, who himself is a major critic of Trump.

“I’m not a one-issue voter and obviously — I know, I’m not stupid — the Republican party does not do a good job when it comes to equality and the entire LGBT community," Jenner said. "The Democrats are better there,” she said Tuesday night. “But for me, I’ve been around a long time, I’m probably more conservative. I believe in little things like the Constitution and freedom. I believe in minimal government…. And so Republicans have done a better job in that direction.”

“I gotta keep an eye on these people," Jenner stressed. "Trump, who I talked to before [at] the Inauguration, about a lot of LGBT issues when the whole North Carolina bathroom bill, all that mess. And I had talked to him about my feelings on that. All of sudden he gets into office and one of the first things he does, which he never should have done, is repeal the Title IX for equality for trans people in school. That was good federal guidelines for states to be able to follow, and I blasted him."

Will she vote for him again? Too early to tell at this point.

“I was asked a question the other day, ‘Would you vote for him again?’" Jenner said. "I said, ‘Wait a second, it’s three and a half years away. There’s a lot that’s going to happen in that three and a half years and I’ll make that decision at that point.'”

She Wants to Co-Host 'Live! With Kelly'

“I have been around for 40 years, from the old ‘Regis and Kathie Lee’ — Kathie Lee’s [Gifford] the godmother to some of my children — and all this kind of stuff. I’ve watched your show for years, I’ve seen you go through all this stuff -- and I’ve never been asked to co-host."

"Done and done," Kelly Ripa replied.

"I keep thinking, 'When am I going to get the phone call?' Now I thought, all of the sudden, now the story gets so much more interesting. Girl, we would have so much to talk about."

She Identifies as a Trans Woman, Not a Woman

While talking to Don Lemon on "CNN Tonight" Tuesday evening, she made it clear she believes there is a difference between a trans woman and a woman, even after genital surgery.

"I was no more a woman the day the before the surgery than I was the day after the surgery," Jenner said. "It's just the public's perception is they think that's what it's all about, and it is not about that. It is about my soul."

"And you're very clear: You said, 'I am a trans woman, I'm not a woman, I can't give birth,'" Lemon said.

"I didn't have the same experience. My road to womanhood was different than most," Jenner said.

She's Down for a Game of Golf With Trump -- As Long As Nobody Ever Finds Out About It

"Would you like to meet with the president?" Lemon asked Jenner in the same "CNN Tonight" interview. Although Jenner was turned off by Trump's decision to reverse Obama-era guidance on Title IX -- a federal law which bans sex discrimination in school, but now excludes gender identity from protection -- she wants to meet with the President to ask him why he made that decision.

"He wants me to play golf with him,” Jenner said. “I would love to, even after the fact that he took this Title IX thing away, I would love to go down to play golf with him and say, ‘Why the hell did you do that? That was the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen.’ And tell him that, but now I can’t. If I was publicly seen with him, my community would go nuts. I would be ostracized from the community, so I’d like to have that meeting, but I’d have it privately and nobody would ever know.”
