We’re used to seeing political U-turns here in the UK (*cough* David Cameron *cough*) but Caitlyn Jenner’s latest move could give even our current government a run for its money.
Up until this week Caitlyn Jenner had declared herself to be a staunch republican, arguing that despite her transition her political beliefs were unchanged. She’d even thrown her weight behind ultra-controversial candidate Donald Trump – in a recent episode of I Am Cait, the reality star managed to infuriate a group of friends with her political views so much that some of the women present left the room.
The 66-year-old had claimed Republican candidate Trump would be ‘very good for women’s issues.’
’I am not a big fan because I think with his macho attitude he would have a hard time with women when he doesn’t even realise it. And it doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be good for women issues. I think he would be very good for women’s issues,’ said Caitlyn, to her shocked friends.
‘I don’t think he is out there to destroy women or take things away or do any of that kind of stuff,’ she added, while one woman declared: ‘Kill me now.’ We hear you.
Caitlyn also took a controversial anti-Hilary Clinton stance, when she launched into a scathing attack on the Democrat candidate.
‘Oh my God I would never ever vote for Hilary. We are done. If Hilary becomes president the country is over. You can’t fix immigration or the economy, it has to stop. You don’t have a country and Hilary is not going to do it,’ said Caitlyn.
When it was argued that Hilary is ‘an amazing woman,’ Caitlyn angrily retaliated.
‘What has she done in her life? What has she done? What has she done? She was horrible. Look at all of the things that are going on in the Middle East because of what she did. Look at Benghazi. She lied to us, she is a f***ing liar. She is a political hack, that’s all she is, she has done nothing.’
But it would seem that Caitlyn’s daughters have taken her to one side for a word. On Monday evening she posted a picture of herself with none other than the politician she had previously poured venom on – Hilary Clinton herself.
But it was the caption itself that was most telling – ‘#LearningFromMyGirls #WillingToListen.’ It would seem the Kardashian-Jenner sisters have stepped in to teach Caitlyn one or two things about their views…
