Caitlyn Jenner to Donald Trump: ‘This is a disaster. And you can still fix it’

Caitlyn Jenner Touches Down At LAX Airport

Caitlyn Jenner spent most of 2016 saying stupid words about politics. I think Caitlyn was a bigger fan of Ted Cruz during the primaries, but when Donald Trump got the GOP nomination, she moved her support to him. She once claimed that Trump “seems to be very much for women,” as compared to Hillary Clinton, because OMG. She also did a stunt at Trump Tower where she used the public ladies’ bathroom. She did after Trump said in an interview that he didn’t think North Carolina’s bathroom law was the right thing to do.

Still, considering Trump is an empty shell of a man who just sits around all day watching cable news, the transphobic a–holes he’s surrounded himself with managed to revoke the Obama-era federal guidelines supporting transgender kids’ rights to use the bathroom and locker room in public schools which correspond with their gender identity. The Obama-era guidelines were based on Title IX, and now each individual state gets to interpret Title IX however they want, which is problematic for a million different reasons. Anyway, tons of celebrities spoke out about Trump revoking the guidelines, and now Caitlyn Jenner is getting in on it. Even though she voted for Trump and went to his inauguration, she took to social media to call this a “disaster.” In the video, she says: “I have a message for President Trump from well, one Republican to another. This is a disaster. And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community… Call me.”

I have a message for the trans kids of America. You are winning. I know it doesn’t feel that way today or every day, but you _ are _ winning. You are going to keep on winning so much you’re going to get sick of winning. Very soon, we'll win full freedom nationwide, and it’s going to happen with bipartisan support. For all our friends out there, If you want to be part of this winning side, you can help by checking out the National Center for Trans Equality and letting Washington hear how you feel loud and clear. (Link in bio!) Now…I also have a message for the bullies. You suck. You’re losers and you’re going to keep on losing. Because you’re weak, you pick on kids or you pick on women or anyone you think is vulnerable. Apparently even becoming the Attorney General isn’t enough to cure some of you of your insecurity. As proof that you can’t stop our progress, the Supreme Court will soon hear an important Title Nine case thanks to the courage of a brave young man named Gavin Grimm. See you in court!

Do I think that Caitlyn did this because she felt pressure from within the transgender community? Probably. But as someone who watched most of Season 1 of I Am Cait, I do think that she has genuine empathy for transgender kids in particular, and she’s spent a lot of time educating herself about what transgender kids – and their families – are going through on a day to day basis. Still, it’s painful to see how Caitlyn never realized that a vote for the GOP is a vote for this kind of regressive, repressive, anti-inclusive, pro-bullying bulls–t. Even if Donald Trump said a million bigly words about how he was going to be very, very amazing on LGBTQ rights, he was still always going to appoint people like Betsy DeVos, Jeff Sessions, Mike Pence, Steve Bannon and more.

    Whatever Caitlyn 🙄

    • Radley says:

      How could she not have seen this coming?? Oh Caitlyn. I had high hopes for you. But you seem content to rest on your rich white woman privilege while allowing other marginalized people to suffer—until it affects you. You have daughters, granddaughters, grandkids of color. Perhaps you should have given a little consideration to what kind of world Trump would create for them rather than the whole Trump-let-me-use-his-toilet-so-I’m-cool thing.

      Another narcissist supporting another narcissist. That’s Jenner and Trump.

      • KB says:

        She doesn’t give a sh*t. She can use whatever bathroom she wants. She’s rich, famous, and lives in California. She doesn’t care about trans kids in NC or AR because she wanted tax cuts. She may be trans, but she spent 65 years being treated like a rich, white man, and her politics still mirror that.

      • vaultdweller101 says:

        @ KB: I think you hit the nail on the head with tax cut things. Being wealthy, Trump’s BS legislation will probably benefit her. She’ll also probably never really feel the effects of these policies because she’s wealthy and white and insulated from real world concerns.

        She got her vote for Trump, and now she’s decrying it because she didn’t know Orange Caligula was anti-LGBTQ? No, she knew. She just wants to have her cake and then eat it too — the worst kind of cowardice.

      • Tate says:

        Well said, KB. Completely agree.

    • Placebo says:

      Yeah….girl, bye.

    • Pandy says:

      KB couldn’t have said it any better!!

  2. Heat says:

    Hey Caitlyn: Ever hear the saying “Sometimes you get what you wished for”?

    Yeah…this is what that means.

  3. Kitten says:

    “It’s going to happen with bipartisan support”?
    Um NOPE wrong answer try again please.

    This whole statement was such a f*cking cop-out. Trans kids are not “winning” under this administration. These people are socially REGRESSIVE af. Gah. You voted for and supported Trump, Caitlyn, ergo you’re part of the problem no matter how much you try to distance yourself from it.

    • Ramona says:

      Exactly. She is trying to pin this on the AG and not Trump or his voters. Who got Trump into office? Who appointed Sessions? Who ignored all the protests against Sessions appointment? Where was Caitlyns “voice” during the confirmation phase? Hell, where was her voice when Trump picked Pence as his running mate?

      I hope Trans leaders are publicly distancing themselves from Caitlyn. Theres no doubt that Trump WILL invite her to the White House for a photo op to protect himself from transphobe charges and Caitlyn will get a PR boost among her kind of people.

      • Kitten says:

        YES precisely!!! that was the first thing I noticed too: she will call out Sessions, but not Trump? F*ck off, Cait.
        Her entire statement was designed to avoid acknowledging her responsibility in the mess that is this administration.

      • Original T.C. says:

        “Who ignored all the protests against Sessions appointment? Where was Caitlyns “voice” during the confirmation phase?”

        Exactly. People simply refuse to learn from history. Unfortunately a lot of other minorities didn’t protest Sessions because they thought he was prejudiced only against Black Americans and it’s not their fight. You know like Hitler hated ONLY the Jews.

        In general if a person is prejudiced against one minority group, he/she will eventually come for your group too. It’s one of those solid sayings just like if a person cheats or hits you once, it will happen again.

        Black people just happen to be easily identified so many times it starts with going after them. I’m telling all my non-Mexican friends to stand up against the ICE raids. Believe me, even White immigrants and American citizens will eventually end up on the Brown Shirt’s…I mean ICE members arrest list. Watch.

      • sunnydaze says:


        I am so tired of people who said they thought he would calm down when he got into office, or he was just pandering to certain groups. HE PICKED PENCE AS HIS VP. Right there, they should have known this was for real. My mother, the eternal devil’s advocate, actually said to me a lot of people probably didn’t realize who Pence was and maybe truly thought trump would get into office and go back to his “blue roots”. When I responded that people had a responsibility to educate themselves she actually told me I was asking too much. true story.

  4. HK9 says:

    This is what happens when “sharks” vote for the “shark biting party”-they bite you. I don’t understand people who vote against their own self interest. (no sarcasm here I just really don’t get it)

    • bleu_moon says:

      America is the land of future lottery winners. Their windfall is just around the corner and they vote to protect the income they want, not the income they have. Plus there is a tendency to hero worship rich people in America as naturally better, smarter and more worthy.

      • smcollins says:

        Wonderfully stated @bleumoon, which perfectly sums up why so many vote against there own interests. They vote in accordance with the life they want, not the one they have. As far as Caitlyn….too little too late. Only when they make a move against something that directly affects her does she decide to stand up and say something? PROactive, Caitlyn, not REactive.

      • MS. Lib says:

        Wow bleu_moon! This has always been a conundrum to me but your statement clearly delineates the issue.

      • Megan says:

        As a small business owner whose company falls into the sweet spot of paying the highest corporate tax rate in America, it would be in my economic best interest to vote Republican, but I never have. I am a pure values voter. I believe a more egalitarian society where the strongest help the weakest is in my best interest.

        People’s votes are motivated by many factors. Assuming poor people have to vote their economic interest while rich people have the option to vote their conscience is a condescending liberal view.

      • Algernon says:

        @ Megan

        It’s not condescending to point out a verifiable statistical fact that lower-income people vote against their interests, because they do. The issue is that one party makes everything about values to deliberately obfuscate how their economic policies will not help, and may even actively hurt, the lower-income and working class base they rely on. And that leaves the democrat/progressive side in a real bind, because the value systems are just different and they’re never going to win conservatives over on value-based appeals. But people hate statistics and facts, so they can’t get them to sit through demonstrations of how republican economic policies hurt them. If there’s any silver lining to the current clusterwhoops in the White House it’s that maybe those people, as they are directly and negatively impacted by these policies, will finally start to see that the GOP does not care about them and is actively interested in keeping them poor.

        It’s really unfortunate we’ve come to a place where you often have to choose between values and economic interest, but that is where we are and one side definitely votes against their own interest more than the other.

      • Radley says:

        @ bleu_moon

        Agree 100%. There’s a lot of “aspirational” voting that goes on. This is also how some POC end up voting against their interests. They buy into the myth of the model minority. So if they do everything exactly right as far as the white conservatives who enable the model minority myth are concerned, somehow they’ll be elevated and considered better than their fellow POC. All it does is foster self-loathing and intra-racism, which benefits the white majority. Crabs in a barrel and all that…

      • Megan says:

        @Algernon You’ve missed the point entirely. It is not up to middle class white liberals to tell working class and poor people how they should or should not vote. And while you see it as perfectly acceptable for me to vote against my economic interests (as I do every time I step into the voting booth), you don’t extend the same consideration to working class and poor voters. For some voters, like me, there are things that matter more to them than their own personal financial situation.

      • Algernon says:

        @ Megan

        I didn’t mean it to come off that way, sorry. People vote the way they do for a lot of reasons. I put my progressive values over my economic interests and pay higher taxes because I believe in public education and healthcare, etc, and if conservative voters choose to do the same, great. I’m just saying there is a verifiable phenomenon in effect when lower-income people vote conservative, which is that they will remain lower-income. Me voting for progressive values does not carry the same effect because even though I pay higher taxes, I still get things like lower healthcare costs because birth control is now fully covered by insurance, and I have a better shot at equal pay, etc. Just look at the ACA to see how poor conservatives shoot themselves in the foot. It’s not equal on both sides because voting my values doesn’t hurt me economically to the same extent it does them.

      • Megan says:

        @Algernon There many structural issues on our society that impact who is rich and who is poor. Like funding of public schools at the local level. The movement of industry in the US. A free market economy dominated by multi-national corporations.

        Despite being the traditional Democratic base, African Americans and Latinos populations live in poverty at twice the rate of whites. For most people, voting their economic interest has very little outcome in their day-to-day lives.

      • Ashamed 2 b a Fl girl says:

        So very beautifully and succinctly stated!

      • noway says:

        @Megan- Everyone has a right to vote however they want, and saying that there is a portion of poor people who vote against their interests isn’t condescending. You say you vote against your personal interests, but you said from a pure tax standpoint. As a small business owner, I too believe that the more people who are uplifted in our economy the more my business would thrive. So I don’t honestly see that you are voting against your greater interest. The problem is when you ask people why they voted for him. It’s because he is going to create more jobs, make us safer, better economy, stop illegal immigration, more conservative. and his policies the few he defined don’t really show that.

        My problem is the Caitlyn Jenner’s (if I believed this story), all the people upset about their health insurance, and all the other people worried about immigrants, the cost of the wall and ICE agents, and countless others who now voice loudly against Trump. Sorry, it has only been a month, I fail to believe all of these people voted. At least when they interview them you realize a lot didn’t vote and a fair amount of the independents wished they didn’t vote for Trump. What kind of warning signs did they need to realize he was going to do things like this. Hate to say this at least with Caitlyn Jenner’s issue, at least Trump did say the opposite, but not sure why she believed him with all the people surrounding him who believe in this.

      • Megan says:

        @Noway I own a consulting company that works exclusively with not for profit entities. The economy, whether good or bad, has almost no impact on the type of work I do. I am staffed according to my client load, which means reduced taxes would create zero jobs at my company. Reduced taxes would allow me to put a greater share of the profits into my retirement account.

        I am absolutely voting against my economic interests.

  5. Clare says:

    ‘Call me’…that’s all I need to know about this woman. She is a self serving narcissist.
    Sorry Jenner, this isn’t about you, get over yourself. There are people who are far more informed than you – perhaps ask the Dark Lord to call THEM!

    • Aren says:

      Exactly. She’s as delusional as Kanye, thinking that because they have money and fame, they can influence a bunch of white billionaires to change laws.

    • Original T.C. says:

      Exactly, Narcissism overload. Meanwhile Laverne Cox is going to political shows like Hardball, quoting facts and statistics about the harm of such policies on Transgender youths and reciting cases with no notes in front of her. She is a celebrity who is actually doing something and intelligent enough to argue with Republican lawyers and politicians.

      • Radley says:

        I saw Laverne last night on MSNBC. She did wonderfully.

        I also appreciate Chris Matthews for not letting whatever conservative anti he had on swerve on the question. If you can’t support your point of view (as Laverne did), then just maybe you’re wrong. Amazing how that works, right?

  6. Lolo86lf says:

    Donald Trump must be getting teased today about Caitlyn’s request: “call me”.

  7. Neelyo says:

    Caitlin doesn’t care. As long as she can go in her gold plated bidet, all is good with the world.

  8. Aims says:

    So when Trump’s insanity personally effects her, then that’s when he’s gone too far? How about being a good human being and stand up against this bigot even if his disgusting judgment doesn’t effect you personally ?

    We all said it. This dickhead and party doesn’t give a damn about anyone who is not white, rich or male.

    • LA says:

      I hope that Caitlyn is starting to realize that the party she loves so much does not love her back.

    • Embee says:

      This x 1000! I am working very hard not to scream at people (like my boyfriend) who, when Trump’s policies and idealogy finally impact him personally, realize what we are dealing with. I am not screaming “I TOLD YOU THIS FOR MONTHS!!!” but it’s with effort. He thought Trump was a buffoon but (as an entrepreneur with a dozen successful businesses) had faith in his business background (wouldn’t face the bankruptcy evidence to the contrary). My boyfriend is Iranian. Since the travel ban he now sees all the shit I have been screaming about for months. All of it. The veil has lifted, but unfortunately after Nov.

      • noway says:

        @ Embee +1000% – Yes honestly how unaware can some people be. I know we are a society that doesn’t look at long term consequences very well, but this isn’t really long term. We are talking a month here, and it was blatantly obvious.

    • Melanie says:

      I understand the frustration but part of what will never get Trump supporters to see that he is bad for them too and we should all be working together to oppose him is when we make comments that morality shame them and put them on the defense.

    • delorb says:

      Agreed. This is usually the case. His voters are always for hurting someone who doesn’t look like them or some they know. They did the same thing with stem cells until Reagan got Alzheimer’s. They wanted the repeal ObamaCare until they realized they’re actually ON ObamaCare.


      Why should we be worried about hurting their feelings when they’re actions are hurting actual people? Jeez.

  9. kNY says:

    She is just evidence of yet another trump voter who votes against their own personal interests.

  10. Bess says:

    Caitlin Jenner has zero credibility.

  11. JudyK says:

    I thought this was the best thing I’ve seen her do. Her “call me” was obviously sarcastic.

    • original kay says:

      Yes, I agree with this. It’s the best thing I’ve ever seen her do.

      Such a low standard she’s set, because what she did here was nothing.

    • Megan says:

      A Jenner did something that pleasantly surprised me. The world truly has been turned upside down.

      • original kay says:

        I was pleasantly surprised as well, until the end. The “call me”.

        Like she is the trans savior, showing off she has a direct line to the WH, that she alone will fix this.

        It highlights she still doesn’t get it, and never will. Her privilege blinds her to the reality of what trans people face, yet she still thinks she is the role model they need.

        She never was, and never will be.

      • PippiLongdivision says:

        Nope. Just another example of a bigoted Republican only caring about people like her, and no one else. “Screw minorities of all sorts, immigrants, refugees, women in general, others in the LGBTQ community, poor people, sick people, trans-WAIT, THAT’S ME; IT’S NOT OKAY.” Gee, if only there had been some warning about what kind of person Trump is before you voted for him . . . Until you’ll also fight for people who don’t immediately make you think of yourself you’re still part of the problem.

      • jwoolman says:

        Original Kay — Jenner doesn’t have to be a good role model or general spokesperson for trans people in order to do some good here. This is a single issue that she has some personal experience with and she likely does have a kind of direct line to the White House. Trump probably has known her for quite a while. They may have golfed together in former times. And Jenner is an Olympic champion so famous that even I recognized her former name and knew what she looked like. Trump is just a few years older than me. To our generation, Jenner was the famous one, not the Kardashians.

        The goal is to let trans kids use the damn bathroom of their choice. If Jenner can influence Trump on that, more power to her. She doesn’t have to do anything else.

  12. Sam the Pink says:

    If anybody harbored the idea that the GOP was NOT going to do something like this, you could only achieve that by not paying attention. My husband keeps saying “If Donald Trump is surprising you right now, you spent the entire election season asleep.” He is, weirdly enough, sort of a man of his (awful) word. He said he wanted mass deportations – well, he’s doing them. He said he wanted a wall – well, he’s going to build it. And he selected Mike Pence as his VP – a man who counts his anti-gay, anti-abortion views as a point of pride. Like….what else did he have to do to make clear that stuff like this was inevitable? He gave you every single reason in the world not to vote for him, in fairness.

  13. RussianBlueCat says:

    Doesn’t Caitlyn have a book coming out this year? I have to wonder if this “plea to Trump” is more about a backlash and/or potential boycott of her book

  19. swak says:

    This came up on my FB feed last night and the blowback to Caitlyn was unbelievable. She is pretty much being called out for her hypocrisy. She still has the privileged white man attitude.

  20. Aarika says:

    Now that it concerns HER, she cares? Be careful of encouraging/rejoicing in other people’s repression, the shoe might be on the other foot before you know it.

    • K2 says:

      I thought that. It’s fine by her when Trump defecates from altitude on every other marginalised group imaginable, but now it’s her own? Shots fired!

      I also have to assume she has an IQ in single figures, because most of us could have placed a bet on this development, were any gambling business willing to accept it.

  21. G says:

    She voted for him and decided to be willfully blind. Bye.
    I’m off to go protect my trans friends, none of whom are rich and can be protected like Caitlyn. This is yet another huge blow to them and it’s going to be a lot of work to keep them safe.
    If any of you know trans people, do what you can to protect their right to exist in public. Walk with them. Amplify their voices.

  22. Veronica says:

    I am genuinely baffled by people who honestly didn’t think Trump was really going to be this bad. You voted for a guy on the basis that “he says what he thinks,” but then you expected him NOT to fulfill all the awful promises he made? You put a man like this in power on the off chance that he was bluffing? At least the hatemongers who avidly support all of this were honest about their reasons going into it.

    • Insomniac says:

I think it would just make me more infuriated to see the legions of idiots finally realizing that they made the incredibly obvious awful choice of voting for a snake oil salesman and a flat-out shitty human being.

      • Beth says:

        I read Trumpgets and just a couple days after the election, they see how bad he is and want their votes back. It’s too bad so many didn’t notice how awful he was until it was too late. It was easy for so many of us to see how bad he was, why couldn’t they?

    • Beth says:

      It’s too bad voters weren’t listening to what he was saying when “he says what he thinks “! It’s terrible and I’m shocked so many people couldn’t see how this would end up

      • original kay says:

        I read somewhere that the media takes trump literally (not translating his stupid tweets into what he really means, however that works), but they never took him seriously.

        I agree with that, though not just the media. His supporters didn’t seem to take him seriously either.

        Caveat emptor . Idiots.

    He can’t “still fix it” because he doesn’t want to.

    • original kay says:

      He can’t fix it because he is the one who put it there! he filled his cabinet with hatred, and this is what he wanted.

      Fix it? He loves it. They all do, the sick, deplorable people they are.

  28. Megan2 says:

    Caitlyn, so is the only “disaster” of this administration the one that infringes upon you personally? Or are you also referring to Heavy D’s racist Muslim ban? Are you also outraged about the attempted rollback on reproductive rights for your fellow women? Is it also a disaster to witness the anti-semitism and racist b.s. that is coming from the white house?

    If you truly think that the only disastrous policy is the one that may have an impact on you (and even then, with your privilege, it won’t be you that is most affected), then you are still the same person who claimed that Trump would be very good for women. We are past a point of picking and choosing what we want to be outraged about here; you are here for all of us, or you are here for none of us. And frankly, if you are still here for Bigly D, then as far as I’m concerned you fall pretty squarely on the wrong side of the aisle.

    That being said, if this is her “coming to jesus” moment and she comes around to realizing that Bigly D is terrible for people all over the world and stops claiming loyalty to the Party of the Alt-Right (or, as we should actually be calling them, the party of the bigoted Nazi right), then great. The more people who learn and grow from this experience, the fewer people who will vote to throw their fellow citizens under the bus in your next election. But based on this stupid appeal to Trump, it kind of looks like Caitlyn is still only here for Caitlyn.

    Seriously, to everyone hurting under this archaic ruling, I am so sorry. You need and deserve better allies than the Caitlyn’s out there who only see your pain when it affects them. I hope you have people around you who love you and who will stand for you; for what it’s worth there are so many of us who believe in you and believe in your humanity and your human rights, and are willing to stand with you all. I truly hope that this gets better.

    Then they came for me and there was noone left to speak up.

    I am not Trans,Muslim,undocumented worker,etc but I know their rights are human rights.I don’t have to be a member of the group to be outraged.

      ^^ Exactly. This. I’m white. I’m Jewish, but it’s considered an “immutable” characteristic, and one that I can hide if I choose/need to. The fact that I should even have to contemplate doing so is nauseating enough, but I think about it and I honestly keep reminding myself, “It’s OK, you can make yourself safer by hiding it if you have to.” And that’s why I stand up for others. Because it’ll matter to me too.

      I don’t ever remember feeling this unsafe because of my religion. Nearly 44 years, and this is the first time I’ve been nervous about walking into my synagogue.

    Caitlyn was a useful idiot to Trump during the campaign, nothing more. She still doesn’t seem to realize that.

  32. OTHER RENEE says:

    This from a woman who chose to come out as transgender wearing lingerie on the cover of a magazine while she still had a minor child at home. It’s all about her.

    As I mentioned yesterday, I have a trans stepchild who I raised from her teens. I despise what’s happening. Caitlyn pisses me off cuz she should have realized what was going to happen once emperor-in-his-own-mind got elected.

    WHAT did she expect?

    Well NASA has found 3 news planets that could support human life. *runs off to put name on the immigration waiting list*

    • Izzy says:

      Literally the first thing that popped into my head when I heard the news was “When can I move?”

      And I am using “literally” in the actual literal sense, not the New Oxford Dictionary figurative sense.

    ‘This is a disaster. And you can still fix it’
    Incidentally what everyone says about her plastic surgery.

  36. LA Elle says:

    Overheard: “Shouldn’t Caitlyn Jenner have renounced her entitled rich white dude privilege when she became a woman?”

    On the one hand, it’s offensive. On the other hand, kind of true?

    • Izzy says:

      Yeah, but now she’s an entitled rich white woman. She changed her gender physically, but she’s still the same self-centered a-hole that Bruce Jenner was.

  37. holly hobby says:

    She voted and advocated for Orangino. So too damn bad he rescinded it. You get what you paid for. and F–k her shoes!

  38. Izzy says:

    I’ve typed and deleted this about three times because I’m sure I’ll sound like a jerk to some of you, but f*** it because I have had it up to here with this stupid basic b****.

    I have as much sympathy for her as I do for those idiot voters who voted for Trump and are now horrified that they are losing their ACA healthcare that they have come to depend on. Oh, you don’t know what you’ll do if you get cancer or have another heart attack? TOO BAD, YOU VOTED FOR THIS AND GOT EXACTLY WHAT YOU VOTED FOR.

    Caitlyn Jenner, you’re upset because soon you might travel out of Cali and someone will arrest you for using the “wrong” bathroom? TOO BAD, YOU VOTED FOR THIS AND YOU GOT EXACTLY WHAT YOU VOTED FOR.

    You know who I do feel sorry for? All the people who wanted healthcare coverage, had it, and now might lose it because of ignorant a-holes like Jenner. All the LGBTQ people whose rights are being stripped away every day now. All of us who didn’t vote to go back to the 16th f***ing century now have to fight like hell to clean up this mess that you helped create, because you, who enjoyed all the privilege that came with being a white man, now a white woman, were so f***ing oppressed by everyone being able to get married if they wanted to.

    I am SO F***ING ANGRY right now that I had to drink herbal tea today. HERBAL. TEA. I just can’t.

    Also, I’m really sorry about all the cussing. Like I said, I’m pissed. Cheers, everyone.

    • Megan2 says:

      I feel you Izzy. I’m eating chicken soup and drinking a lot of tea these days too, just to try and keep from exploding both mentally and emotionally with rage and disbelief and sadness.

      Cuss away… I entirely get where you are coming from.

    • Kitten says:

      All the claps for you and I like it when you get angry, Izzy. You said it all, my friend.

      • Izzy says:

        HERBAL. TEA. I am fortunate that I’ve managed to find the single, solitary blend of herbal tea that I actually like instead of just tolerate. Otherwise I’d be so wired on caffeine right now I’d be doing a Spiderman off a ceiling fixture.

    • Tate says:

      Izzy, you are not the only one that feels this way. I am angry as hell too. I applaud your post!

    • Amanda DG says:

      Completely agree. I am angry at the moronic voters who chose Trump all because Hillary “lies” and “can’t be trusted.” She was far and away the better and more qualified candidate between the two. I don’t have sympathy for people who voted for him and now regret it only one month into his administration. If those voters want to make things right, then start making phone calls, protest, and vote democrat in 2018.

    I’ve never commented on a Jenner post. I am no apologist for her. It is appalling that her myopic support of tr*ump helped cause our current plight.

    I have to admit, though, that when I saw this news and watched the video I was surprised to feel a sense of relief. Even Jenner thought something was a bridge too far! Wow. I do think it matters that she is speaking up, even if it feels too late, and even if she is appealing to the (non-existent) better nature of her “friend” tr*mp. In the coalition to defeat GOP/Putin-sponsored fascism, I believe we’ll continue to find ourselves with many strange bedfellows.

  41. Erica_V says:

    This makes me think of that perfect tweet:

    “I never thought the leopards would eat MY FACE!” – said the woman who voted for the Leopards Eating Faces Party.

  42. Amanda DG says:

    I hate to say this, but we told you so Caitlyn. Trump is not interested in the rights of women or minority groups.

  43. B. Kitty Beau says:

    Caitlyn doesn’t care about transgender youth or anyone else aside from herself. She’s making this more about her and her own taking a stand (publicly like all that family does for every single thing) instead of truly putting her money and privilege to work.

    She voted for Trump. She supported him even after his comments and even though she has family members of color. She’s in the same club as he is: rich, white, self interested and clueless.

    How much money has she put behind the ideals she speaks about? How many has she helped organize? Why hasn’t she gone privately to seek audience with the Orange Menace? Because she needs public attention even to deliver empty words.

  44. Pan says:

    Bruce is still a self centred, privileged old man. Surprise surprise.

  45. jwoolman says:

    I wouldn’t give up on Trump on this issue. DeVos was for leaving the policy alone because she actually was thinking about the kids, but she was most likely facing resignation or dismissal if she persisted. Sorry, kids. Sessions was adamantly in favor of trashing it because he’s Sessions…. Trump doesn’t really care one way or another. So if people he likes or respects (who have gobs of money) talk to him about it, there’s a chance. Slim because he’s a dolt who fluctuates like the wind, but he wants to be loved. So whatever he thinks will make him look good, he’ll do if he can get the pen out before somebody else talks to him. Maybe we should chip in for an all-expenses paid cruise for Sessions to get him away from Trump’s elbow for a bit.

    I wonder if there would be any chance to get Congress to do something legislative about this.
