Well, this is 50 shades of messed up. Caitlyn Jenner went for a drive in her convertible on Aug. 3, wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat…right after she slammed Donald Trump for his transgender military ban!
Caitlyn Jenner, 67, was photographed cruising around Malibu, CA, wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, and if it’s a joke, it’s in pretty poor taste. SEE THE NEW PIC OF CAITLYN JENNER WEARING A HAT THAT SUPPORTS DONALD TRUMP.
Update: It turns out that this was a political fashion faux pas. Cait tells TMZ that she was getting ready to go golfing at the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California, when she realized she needed a hat to protect her hair. After rummaging around her closet, she grabbed one hat “without looking at the stitching.” After she was done golfing, she realized she had grabbed the “Make America Great Again” hat and was mortified. Cait detests Trump, she tells TMZ. “What he’s doing to our community is absolutely f***ing awful.”
Cait actually replaced the hat with a golf visor when she stopped by a Starbucks for a coffee, putting the MAGA hat back on when she returned to her car. When she was hallway home, she realized she left her purse at the coffee shop. She ran back to retrieve it, forgetting she had the hat on. A photog snapped the pic and she’s now feeling ashamed. “I apologize to all of the trans community. I made a mistake. I will never do it again and I’m getting rid of the hat,” she tells TMZ.
Original: Cait’s choice of fashion accessory comes barely a week after she angrily responded to Donald Trump‘s move to ban transgender people from the U.S. military. “There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the US military fighting for all of us. What happened to your promise to fight for them?” she tweeted on July 26. “We are strong, we are beautiful, and we will win,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star also wrote on her official website. “The President must ask himself which side of history he will be on — and reverse his position immediately.”
Yeah, obviously we’re a little shocked to see that she appears to be supporting him now — even if it’s meant to be ironic, there’s a time and a place.
The former star athlete famously identifies as a Republican, and supported and voted for Trump. “I’m not a one-issue voter…I’m probably more conservative. I believe in little things like the Constitution and freedom. I believe in minimal government…and so Republicans have done a better job in that direction,” Cait said in defense of her actions in April.
Not cool, Cait.
