Although the newly christened Caitlin Jenner supported and voted for President Donald Trump she now has gotten her panties in a bunch over two of the main promises then-candidate Trump made during the 2016 Presidential Campaign. In fact, she has even gone as far as refusing President Trump’s multiple golfing invitations because she is so outraged by our president keeping his promises.
Which are the offending promises? The first one is the promise then-candidate Trump made to sign an executive order to stop forcing business, such as bakeries, to cater to same-sex weddings. In cases where the religious beliefs of the owners dictate it’s a sin to take part in such an event. The second promise is to roll back former President Barack Hussien Obama’s disgraceful LGBT restroom policies where grown men are now allowed to legally enter the restroom with 10-year-old girls.
In an interview, she gave to the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco yesterday. She actually went as far as to say she would run for public office if it would help her LGBT community.
“How can I use that and that platform to try to make a difference?” Jenner asked. “My loyalties are not with Republican Party; my loyalties are not with Donald Trump. My loyalties lie with my community.
“I’d rather try to convince the Republicans Party to do a better job when it comes to equality for all and equality for the LGBT community than to try to fight the Democrats on lowering taxes and fewer regulations.”
She hardly spent time discussing her previous life with the Kardashians or as Olympic champion Bruce Jenner.
But the Jenner name has been part of the pop culture landscape for four decades. It started in 1973 when a little-known decathlete arrived at San Jose City College in a Volkswagen Bug with a pole vault strapped to the roof, javelins sticking out the door. Three and a half years later, he left the Bay Area as the “World’s Greatest Athlete” having won the Olympic gold medal at the Montreal Games.
The heartthrob decathlete then left the Olympic stage for Hollywood.
Jenner drove race cars and flew planes. There were endorsement deals and small acting roles. There were marriages to Elvis Presley’s former girlfriend and, in 1991, Kris Kardashian. The latter nuptial turned him into a reality TV personality portrayed as a henpecked husband.
“That was pretty much, me, yes,” she said. “I was always around pretty strong women. I like strong women. I learned a lot from Kris. I never in my life felt who I was was worthy. I had all these secrets, all these things inside. I didn’t have confidence putting my voice forward. I had no problem playing that milquetoast.”
Jenner stepped onto a bigger stage two years ago when announcing she identified as a woman, thrusting her into the world of transgender politics at a time LGBT rights are at the forefront of a national conversation.
Glamour magazine named Jenner “Woman of the Year,” while she also received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award during the 2015 ESPY awards.
“High on my priority list is trying to make a difference, trying to make this better for the next generation,” Jenner told the packed audience at a Nob Hill hotel.
An avowed conservative who strongly supports gun rights, Jenner was hopeful last summer with the Trump campaign’s stance on LGBT rights. But, “he has surrounded himself with some bad people that are giving him bad advice,” Jenner said. “He’s the president, he’s signing it, he’s responsible.”
Then she took on Secretary of the Army Mark E. Green, who has criticized lawmakers’ attempts to bar discrimination against LGBT people in workplaces and businesses. Green also said he believes being transgender is a disease.
“I don’t have a disease,” Jenner said. “It is the Bible telling him to fight it. There is no one evil here. We got to weed them out.”
Jenner said Trump invited her to play golf after the inauguration, something she considered doing to make inroads for her causes.
“Then I realized he’s got a big ego and I don’t think he wants to get beat by a 67-year-old trans woman,” Jenner said.
When asked if she would consider running for office, Jenner said some friends have suggested she try for the presidency.
“I was thinking of starting with the mayor of Malibu,” the long-time resident of the L.A. coastal enclave said. “I want to make it better politically for my community. Is it working from the outside, or working from the inside?
“I don’t know.”
The answer to both of these is simple. A business has the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason at any time. The other is if you have a wee-wee you use the boy’s restroom if you have a hoo-hoo you use the ladies room. If you claim to have neither, you pee outside. Sounds very logical in a nation which has freedom, but during the dark days of President Obama’s America where the government took it upon itself to bully and drive businesses to ruin if they wouldn’t cater to the LGBT-XYZ community.
Maybe it would be best for her to just disappear if she wants to help. I can’t look at her without thinking of that gold medalist on the Wheaties box from when I was a kid. Where did my America go?
