When you gotta go, you gotta go.

Trans activist Caitlyn Jenner knows this all too well. The reality star posted a Facebook video on Wednesday that shows her walking into Trump Tower in New York to use the bathroom.

In the video, Jenner says she really has to pee, and she says that she knows she can use the restroom in Trump Tower because Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently said transgender people should be able to use public bathrooms that match their gender identity. Trump also voiced support for Jenner, specifically, being able to use her bathroom of preference at Trump Tower, according to The New York Times.

Once Jenner is in Trump Tower, she briefly gestures toward the men's restroom before entering the ladies' restroom. When she comes out of the ladies' restroom, she thanks Trump and takes a dig at Republican presidential contender Sen. Ted Cruz, who has voiced opposition to trans bathroom rights.

"By the way Ted, nobody got molested," Jenner said, hearkening back to thoroughly debunked arguments that allowing the transgender community to use their bathroom of choice would provide cover for those wanting to molest women.

Jenner sang Trump's praises for allowing her to use the women's restroom during her speech at the TIME 100 Gala in New York City, according to People.

"This toast actually started in a bathroom," Jenner said. "Actually, bathroom issues right now in my life seem to be in the forefront. Actually, on that issue I just want to say also – one little trans woman walking down the street had to go, I looked up and who did I see but the Trump Tower. Last week Donald Trump said I could use any bathroom I wanted in the Trump Tower. So of course I veered right in there – took care of myself."

Cruz came under fire over the weekend for remarks he made to reporters about transgender bathroom rights. ThinkProgress reported that he insinuated transgender people should not be allowed to use public restrooms at all, and he hinted that trans people might pose dangers to women and children.

“You don’t have a right to intrude upon the rights of others because whether or not a man believes he’s a woman, there are a lot of women who would like to be able to use a public restroom in peace without having a man there — and when there are children involved, you don’t have a right to impose your lifestyle on others.”

Jenner, a known Republican, made headlines earlier this year for saying that she likes Cruz, but she clarified later that this was not an endorsement.

The issue of trans bathroom rights has been front and center of the political and human rights stage recently, following the passage of a controversial law in North Carolina, which stipulates that the transgender community must use restrooms according to the gender reported on their birth certificate.

On the other hand, retailer Target also recently made waves by stating that trans people may use their bathroom of choice, leading to boycotts of the store.
