On Sunday’s I Am Cait, the group took a trip to a Democratic presidential debate. Caitlyn Jenner, an outspoken Republican, has clashed with her Democratic travel mates before. In previous episodes, political discussions ended in shouting matches, hurt feelings, and people storming out of the room.
To keep the peace, the group came up with a safe word — or phrase, rather: “God bless America.” So if things were to get too heated, someone would simply utter the phrase to end the conversation.
At the debate, as soon as Sen. Bernie Sanders was mentioned, Jenner said, “He’s just like Obama. He doesn’t really appreciate this country.” That prompted a swift “God bless America.”
Once the group found their boundaries, they were able to have an honest discussion without any ruffled feathers. Showing that they’ve found a better way to communicate, they only said “God bless America” three times.
I Am Cait airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on E.
