Caitlyn Jenner has faced a dilemma since she transitioned. In her previous identity as gold medal Olympian and Kris Jenner punching bag Bruce Jenner, she was a dyed-in-the-wool conservative Republican. Since she embraced her true identity, she’s had to deal with the realization that some of her fellow conservative Republicans have never exactly welcomed the transgender community with open arms. In fact, their big stupid leader has already banned trans people from serving in the armed forces (despite the fact that thousands already do).
During the comedy of
terrors that was the 2016 presidential election, Caitlyn tried to bridge the ideological gap between her fellow trans people and her fellow Trump-loving buds in the GOP. Unfortunately, that didn’t seem to take. Despite still occasionally sporting a MAGA cap, Caitlyn has since said she hates POTUS and has now formally denounced him on Twitter.
Tiny bigot Attorney General Jeff Sessions reversed a policy that protects transgender workers from discrimination yesterday. Caitlyn tweeted her disgust, which was followed by everybody tweeting their disgust with HER.
Buzzfeed reports that after the Keebler AG announced his latest victory, Caitlyn finally saw the light in full.
Trump administration's latest in a string of attacks on trans people: trans students, trans service members, & now employment protections for trans workers. This systematic gutting of non-discrimination protections for trans people is a disgrace! @jeffsessions @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/gVOoRk39fQ

Too late. The floodgates opened on Caitlyn and probably washed her “accidental” MAGA cap away. Those who felt betrayed by a seemingly reluctant member of the LGBTQ community spoke up.
Just a reminder that you voted for this mess and made it public. Rest assured that the LGBTQ+ community places much of the blame on you.

And there are hundreds more tweets like that, dragging Caitlyn all up and down Bitch, We Told You So Street.
Caitlyn brought her crying “member of the Leopards Eating Faces party” schtick to Instagram, too. She got pretty much the same result. One follower brought up a scene from her canceled reality show in which she defended Trump to her fellow transgender friends (as well as claiming he would be “very good for women’s issues“ and that he wouldn’t “try to destroy” or “take stuff away” from them).
Caitlyn responded to all of this with a glamour shot, stating that she intends to do the right thing from now on. Or something.
It’s pretty telling that there didn’t seem to be any Trump supporters criticizing her for leaving their side. That should tell her ass something.
