Oh, Caitlyn Jenner. Sometimes I wish you weren’t so “influential.”
At the Time 100 Gala in New York City on Tuesday, the activist/reality star praised Donald Trump for his recent comments about how the government shouldn’t intervene when it comes to bathroom use. He also says Cait could use any bathroom in the Trump Tower, you konw, if she ever wanted to go into that building (Blech).
Both Jenner and Trump were honorees of the mag’s “100 Most Influential People” list, and Jenner decided to holla back at the event, saying:
“This toast, actually started, in a bathroom. 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.”
She went on to joke:
“I obeyed all the rules, I promise you, I didn’t throw any feminine products down the toilet. And it actually worked out quite well. It was very good.”
Ooof. Caitlyn is woman-identified, but she has the soul of an old privileged white man, doesn’t she?
I’d imagine the trans community won’t be too thrilled about this development, given Mr. Trump’s disturbing views on women. What do YOU think of Caitlyn’s support of Trump?
