Caitlyn Jenner Admits She Was 'Wrong' About Donald Trump

Caitlyn Jenner has written an op-ed piece in which she admits that she was wrong to support Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

The 68-year-old former Olympian believed Trump when he said that he supported the LGBTQ community, but now realizes she should not have backed his campaign.

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,” Caitlyn wrote in the op-ed piece for the Washington Post.

“Sadly, I was wrong,” she added. “The reality is that the trans community is being relentlessly attacked by this president. The leader of our nation has shown no regard for an already marginalized and struggling community. 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, claiming his anti-transgender policies are meant to ‘protect the country.’ This is politics at its worst. It is unacceptable, it is upsetting, and it has deeply, personally hurt me.”

Earlier in the week, Caitlyn slammed Trump over a new policy that he reportedly plans to put into law to “narrowly defin[e] gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth.”

    How can she expect to be taken seriously when she’s publicly being so moronic about something already so obvious?

    Yeah except you did harm and you have done damage so a sorry doesn’t cut it when EVERYONE told you who this guy was from the very beginning and you ignore them all because of your own vile internal corruption.

  • Sorcina

    She might as well say she is dumb and we have covered all areas, because you need to be really really really dumb not to see this coming!

  • cutitout

    Trump would have said anything accept “I’m Sorry” or “I’m wrong” to win… Congratulations….YOU PLAYED YOURSELF.

  • Benny Ehud

    He/she only cared how Trump treated people when it affected them. When Trump was hating blacks, Hispanics, Arabs, etc., it was all good. Now that he’s coming for transgender people, this wingnut has an issue.

  • Gina

    She selfishly didn’t give a damn when other communities were affected by the Trump administration, but NOW she cares because her community is affected. Sit down, Jenner.

  • Phil the Donahue

    Jenner is an idiot. If someone hates every color and women then it’s pretty obvious that person hates anyone who isn’t a white man. #duh.

  • rf7777

    Whatever. She was fine with his pussy grabbing. She was fine with him trashing just about every other minority group he could find to hate UNTIL he came to her’s.

  • MaisyDaisy

    The orange moron in the white house hates everyone but old rich white men. What slays me is there are people who voted for this repugnant excuse for a human being and will again vote Republican even when it is absolutely in their worst interest to do so.

  • abaacyprian

    Just Watch this an you will know everything is wrong

  • petiehottytoddy

    Don’t forget her greed, of course wanting tax cut for the 1%’ers. And because of all the statements she has made about how she is older, more conservative and how she believes in something called the constitution and limited government, she has been speaking that since before she transitioned. What a crock! Jenner will never vote for anyone other than a Republican. Jenner even claimed that she only voted for Trump because he was the Republican candidate and she said “naturally I voted for him. Her oped is as honest as Trump. As Trump says”we will see”.
