Trump voter Caitlyn Jenner just had the nerve to slam the trans military ban

2017-07-27
Caitlyn Jenner really doesn't have a clue does she? The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and outspoken republican has been a strong supporter of Donald Trump since the election last year, and insisted time and time again that the former reality star was looking out for LGBT+ people. Turns out it was all a bunch of bulls**t, and yesterday Trump announced on Twitter - yup, really - that he was rolling back the rights of trans people in the U.S. and banning them from serving in the military in "any" capacity. His announcement will roll back legislation Obama put into place in 2016, and with over 15,000 trans men and women currently serving their country, it will have a devastating impact on so many lives. He also labelled trans men and women "a burden" and cited the alleged cost of their healthcare as his reason for banning them. Following the news, Jenner rushed to Twitter to condemn the president's actions, despite the fact she actively allowed it to happen by voting for him. "There are 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans in the U.S. military fighting for all of us," Jenner tweeted. "What happened to your promise to fight for them?" People quickly hit back at the star, with one saying: "Caitlyn really played herself thinking trump would ever stand up for trans rights/freedoms..." Another angry follower added: "You voted for him. This is on you." Earlier this year, Jenner told CNN: "I don't support him in everything that Trump does. But we needed to shake the system up." So just one question - is this enough of a shake-up sweetie?
