Our Favorite Punching Bag

Caitlyn Jenner is in the news again. I know there are a lot of trans people who hate her because she is rich and/or a Republican. Well the other day she tweeted Trump.

President Donald Trump likely expected tech companies not to be happy about his decision to withdraw federal protections for transgender students in schools.

He might not have expected quite the robust reaction he got from fellow Republican Caitlyn Jenner.
She said in a video,
"You're winning," she said. "I know it doesn't feel like it today or every day, but you're winning. Very soon we will win full freedom nationwide, and it's going to be with bipartisan support."

"Now I have a message for the bullies: You're sick. And because you're weak, you pick on kids, you pick on women or anyone else you think is vulnerable. Apparently even becoming the attorney general isn't enough to cure some people of their insecurities," she said.

The last line appeared to be a pointed reference to new attorney general Jeff Sessions. He was reportedly behind this move, one that reversed the Obama-era policies by which public schools had to allow transgender students to use the bathroom of their gender identity.

Finally, Jenner addressed the president himself.

"I have a message for President Trump from well, one Republican to another," she said. "This is a disaster. And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community."
Is she losing her faith in the Republican Party? Is she seeing the light?

Here is her video...
