Caitlyn Jenner’s media rounds continue.
As you know, the 67-year-old’s tell-all, The Secrets of My Life, is already making waves and it hasn’t even been released yet — and on Friday night, the reality star’s second sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer airs on ABC at 10 p.m. EST.
During the special edition of 20/20, the former Olympian clears the air on a number of issues — including her views on same-sex marriage and Donald Trump.
Two years ago, Miz Jenner sent a very confusing message about not supporting gay marriage while appearing on Ellen… so Diane gave Cait the opportunity to clear that up, to which she clarified:
“I am 100 percent behind gay marriage. Let’s clear that up right now.”
The conservative celeb — who voted for Drumpf in the election — went on to talk about her evolving thoughts on the current POTUS.
“Yes, I did vote for Trump but here’s the deal breaker with the Republican party. And the deal breaker is, you mess with my community, you do the wrong thing with our community, you don’t give us equality and a fair shot, I’m coming after you. When it comes to all equality issues, for the entire LGBT community, what we need is federal guidance. Just like the previous administration said that it was OK to serve as a trans person in the military. We have frontline people, OK? I’m talking Marines, trans guys, on the frontline, fighting for our country. I’m trying to get, especially the Republican party, to make a change.”

It should have been a deal breaker BEFORE he got into office! He’s doing exactly what he said he would do!
“Here’s the deal: yes, I have always had views that lean more towards the Republican party when it comes to politics (as in) less government, believing in the Constitution and all that kind of stuff. But my loyalties and my fights are not going to be with the Republican party. My loyalties are with my community and fighting for my community, and not with Donald Trump.”
“With the Republicans, I keep a very close eye on all the things that are happening – there’s North Carolina (anti-discrimination measures), we’ve got SB6 (‘bathroom bill’) coming up in Texas, all of these things. My fight is for my community and the next generation coming up. I’m very blessed to be able to have a platform where hopefully I can make a difference.”
Again, that’s great and all… but we wouldn’t even be dealing with this if Trump wasn’t elected in the first place! And you helped send our country back in time by putting him in the White House!
