Looks like Donald Trump’s ban on transgender military service members hasn’t really affected Caitlyn Jenner as much as it should have.
The reality star was spotted cruising in the hat we all have grown to detest, a hat that has become synonymous with Trump’s hateful rhetoric and fear mongering campaign tactics.
TMZ reports: “Jenner was out and about Thursday, in a sporty car sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat.”
Jenner spoke out just a few days ago against Trump’s ban on transgender military service members.
Studies estimate there are as many as 15,000 transgender people already serving this country – and for those brave people fighting for our nation, Trump’s early morning tweets must be devastating. I believe every American should be outraged by the disrespect shown to those people wearing our country’s uniform. Furthermore, this half-baked idea puts all of our service members in harm’s way. Does President Trump intend to just pull 15,000 people out of every critical position to which they are currently assigned? That would disrupt core military missions around the world and needlessly endanger our troops.
Over the past two years I have met the most inspiring trans people, and I can testify to the trans community’s incredible resilience and perseverance in the face of enormous discrimination and hate. We are strong, we are beautiful, and we will win. The President must ask himself which side of history he will be on — and reverse his position immediately.
My father, William Jenner, landed on Omaha Beach in WWII, and his bravery and service to his country has always inspired me and helped make me the person I am today. America’s 15,000 trans service members and 134,000 veterans are much braver than you, Mr. Trump; my allegiance is with them and our country, not you.
Jenner’s messaging of her political and social stances has been extremely confusing. She will say one thing in one interview, and then go and do something or say something completely different.
Here could be just another moment of her ignorance. She may blindly stand by the idea we need to make America great again, not understanding that the hat and that phrase stand for a lot more than just that Utopic idea.
