Caitlyn Jenner: I Was Wrong About Trump…

01) Caitlyn Jenner: I Was Wrong About Trump


“Caitlyn Jenner, the former Olympic athlete-turned-transgender activist, has just executed an athletic 180-degree political about-face, turning against President Donald Trump with a mea culpa column declaring, “I was wrong” about Trump’s commitment to LGBTQ rights.

“Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate to claim to support this valuable, vulnerable community, and I was encouraged by the applause he received when he said at the Republican National Convention in July 2016 that he would stand up for the LGBTQ community,” Jenner said in a column published in the Washington Post Thursday.”

    Caitlyn already said she was wrong.

    But, I think she did the right thing during the campaign, striving to engage Republicans on trans issues. That’s far more than most others did, choosing the comfort of being in the Democrats’ pocket, waiting for the slow drip-drip-drip of progress. It took four decades to get marriage rights. And gay people are STILL waiting for federal employment protection, after eight years of Clinton, and eight years of Obama. Stupid.

    The more competition there is for gay and trans votes, the better it will be for gay and trans people.

    Kind people, meanwhile, wait for a single politician with balls.
