Despite the pleas from her friends in the transgender community, Caitlyn Jenner is sticking with her right wing ways. Her newest claim about the future of women's rights under the next president has many confused.
In a teaser for the next episode of I Am Cait, the former olympian continues the heated political discussions that began in the last episode, ultimately leading her to make the following statement:
"I'm not a big fan because I think of his macho attitude. I think he would have a hard time with women when he doesn't even realize it, and it doesn't mean he wouldn't be good for women's issues, I think he would be very good for women's issues."
Now, this claim might be (read: is) somewhat insane, but Trump is notably better than the other Republicans when it comes to certain things like abortion. In October Trump said the following: “I'm pro-life, but with the caveats. It's: Life of the mother (very important), incest and rape." Progressive.
Meanwhile, Cruz and Rubio are almost categorically against a woman's right to chose, even in the most extreme circumstances.
Trump has successfully avoided giving coherent or definitive statements on whether he would work towards equal pay for women, simply stating, "You’re gonna make the same if you do as good a job."
(But let's not even get started on Trump's thoroughly misogynistic and sexist rhetoric throughout the campaign.)
On Hillary, Caitlyn is even less enthusiastic, saying: "I would never ever, ever vote for Hillary. We’re done if Hillary becomes president. The country is over.”
On top of all this, just last week, Caitlyn claimed that she'd like to be the transgender ambassador for the Ted Cruz Campaign.
Anyway, it doesn't seem like Caitlyn's political buffoonery is preventing her from collecting paychecks: she's just snagged a job as the new face of H&M sportswear. Here's her announcement from Twitter:
Republican Health Goth! Hot for Spring 2016!
