Caitlyn Jenner regrets her support of Donald Trump.

Look who finally arrived late to the party. 

Courtesy of USA Today:

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.

“Sadly, I was wrong. The reality is that the trans community is being relentlessly attacked by this president…He has ignored our humanity. He has insulted our dignity. He has made trans people into political pawns as he whips up animus against us in an attempt to energize the most right-wing segment of his party…

“This is politics at its worst. It is unacceptable, it is upsetting, and it has deeply, personally hurt me,” Jenner said.

Jenner, 68, is a lifelong Republican who supported Trump (and attended one of his inauguration parties).

Her support of the president irked some people in the LGBTQ community who’d embraced her when she transitioned in 2015 from Bruce Jenner, reality star and father and stepfather to 10 children, to Caitlyn Jenner, newly minted heroine and media star for a community that needed one.

But after watching Trump and his increasingly hostile administration over the past two years, she said, “my outlook has changed significantly from what it was during my highly publicized and glamorized early Caitlyn days, when my life as an out trans woman was just beginning.”

You know I have absolutely NO sympathy for people who were “fooled” into supporting Donald Trump and now feel betrayed. 

In my opinion, all of the evidence they needed was right there in front of them from the very beginning. 

Of course, he’s incompetent, he always was.

Of course, he’s an asshole, he was from day one.

Of course, he’s a misogynist, have people not heard those Howard Stern tapes?

But here’s the thing that really bothers me. 

It took Donald Trump directly attacking the LBGTQ community for Jenner to get all weepy about how she was fooled. 

Nothing else Trump did, like separate families at the border, roll back climate change policies, gin up anger and hatred toward his critics, or refer to the media as “the enemy of the people,” were enough to disappoint Caitlyn Jenner and inspire her to come out publicly against her boy Trump. 

You know I am not a member of the LGBTQ community, but I feel their pain. 

I am not a woman, but I can empathize when they face misogyny. 

I am not a minority in this country, but I can see what racism does to my black and brown brothers and sisters. 

Perhaps all of that is what makes me a Democrat. 

But to be honest I think that it is what defines me as a human being. 

And I simply do not understand how human beings can turn a blind eye to the suffering of their fellow human beings. 

Just like I cannot understand how ANYBODY was able to support the candidacy of Donald Trump.

    With the midterms approaching, Alicia Menendez sits down with two leading Florida journalists, the New York Times’ Patricia Mazzei and Politico’s Marc Caputo,
    to break down the nuts and bolts of that swing state.

    I have no sympathy for Caitlyn, she was warned.

    The Florida MAGA bomber suspect is identified (Cesar Sayoc) and a van was taken into custody.

    Trump is applauding law enforcement for the catch. He hasn’t mentioned the Florida MAGA bomber’s political party yet.

      That’ll be a redundancy.

    I support the community and the rights of LGBT people in this country. I don’t, however, have any sympathy for Caitlin Jenner. When she was transitioning, she was interviewed by Diane Sawyer. Sawyer asked her why, as a transitioning person, she didn’t support President Barack Obama; whom, as Sawyer pointed out, was strongly supportive of the LGBT community. Jenner’s response was one of the more asinine I’ve ever heard. She couldn’t support President Obama because she ‘believed in the constitution.’ President Obama knows more about the constitution than the vast majority in this country. Her answer was tripe, stupid inane tripe. Jenner is a Republican and always has been. Suddenly her rights are under attack by the very party she has always belonged to. And now she comes around to the truth of it? The Republicans have always had this anti-gay, anti-women’s rights agenda. Always. Caitlin Jenner can go find herself a pole vault and sail on out of sight. Forever.

      I don’t that that Caitlyn Jenner is the brightest around. He fit inl with the narcissism of the Kardashians just fine. I am glad that, finally, she has some understanding of how deceitful and dishonest the GOP is.

    Maybe she can go live in Roseanne Barr’s guesthouse.

    Trans community should take away her heels.

    Jenner only recanted when it affected her and not others. boo boo. shows that ugly American trait that you bitch and moan only when it’s happening in your backyard. and yes, from day one we knew what Donald was and is. another term of his presidency will see more hitlerish tactics against the gay and transgender people. and of coarse all other minorities. the republicans are salvitating at this prospect because they have wanted this all along. it’s getting so that republican minded people are more and more identifying with Putin’s way of thinking, the alt right, the flu Klux Klan, and Hitler. that’s why lately, you hear them demonizing democrats to their rabid base. because their manifesto is within arms reach of being attainable where they can be the masters of this universe and tell the rest of us to fuck off. just watch it happen. each day Mitch McConnell shows his true colors and it looks nothing like what I was raised to believe America stood for.

    Sarah is upset that Caitlyn is better looking than she is.

    • HRH October 26, 2018 at 5:44 pm

      As a man, Bruce Jenner was such a looker.

      As a woman, downright scary. That spooky Noo Yawk stare is in every photo. A scrotom shriveller.

    She thought her clit didn’t stink.
    As it turns out….

    • Lewsiffer October 26, 2018 at 6:46 pm

      He wishes he had a clit. Caitlyn is a dude, he has XY chromosome and man junk. Not going to call him a “her” just because he says he is and got a tit job.

    As a TG female, Caitlyn Jenner can kiss my lily white ass for supporting Trump, By the way, I completely disagree with her need to transition after fathering multiple children and marriages. She did for fame only, and caused great harm to the community I given a deal to assist.

    I Don’t understand how or why anyone would enable dave dennison aka don drumpf. Even Bruce Jenner should have known better.

    I think this quote from a tweet is appropriate: ‘I never thought leopards would eat MY face,’ sobs woman who voted for the Leopards Eating People’s Faces Party.’ – from https://twitter.com/cavalorn/status/654934442549620736?lang=en
