On Tuesday night, Caitlyn Jenner stopped by the Jimmy Kimmel Show to promote her new book The Secrets of My Life and chat about a number of other topics, including her ardent support of Donald Trump. Yes, the same guy who refused to acknowledge Pride Month in June. During the interview, Kimmel asked Jenner if she regrets voting for Trump and her response made me want to puncture my eardrums with a pencil:
I don’t agree with everything he’s doing, but I have always been — I’m older. I grew up in a country where you actually said the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag at school. I believe in limited government, I believe in the people of this nation — not government — and so, and that kind of makes me on the Republican side. And so, he was our candidate.
What? She voted for Trump because she thinks the Pledge of Allegiance is being outlawed in schools? Has she been to a school? I have a 12-year-old child and 14-year-old goddaughter, they both go to different schools and they both say the Pledge of Allegiance every single day. There is no war on the Pledge. Our children are still being indoctrinated each and every morning. Jenner is a fucking moron.
Furthermore her “I believe in limited government, so I vote for the GOP” line is mind-numbingly stupid. The Republican Party is the most intrusive political party in America. They have regulated marriage. They have forced women to have ultrasound wands inserted in their vagina’s in order to see inside of their uterus before women can have abortions. They try to force their Christianity on the rest of America. The GOP Congress even regulates shirt sleeves. There is absolutely nothing limited about the Republican Party–well, except maybe the limited amount of help they want to give poor adults and children.
Jenner needs to stick to whining about how mean her ex-wife is and stop offering opinions about things she clearly doesn’t understand. It’s no wonder the transgender community hates her so much.
