Caitlyn Jenner Defends Donald Trump In An 'I Am Cait' Clip That's As Uncomfortable As It Sounds
When it comes to the 2016 presidential election, there's no doubt there is a lot of controversy surrounding candidate Donald Trump. That said, the former host of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice still finds himself winning states in the primaries and receiving a lot of support from many individuals. Well, one of those supporters is none other than Caitlyn Jenner, who defends Donald Trump in a clip from I Am Cait's Sunday, March 13 episode, shared by E! Online.
First, let me say that, of course, Jenner is entitled to her own opinion and can support whoever she wants. That said, it's very uncomfortable to watch her defend Trump and why he is great for women's issues. Time and again, Trump has not shied away from making sexist comments and has repeatedly shown why he isn't a great candidate for women's rights. So, to hear Jenner rally for him is kind of painful, especially when she's doing it in front of a group of liberal, transgender women, who clearly feel very differently about him.
After being asked what she thinks of Trump, Jenner replies, "Um, I'm not a big fan because I think of his macho attitude. I think he would have a hard time with women when he doesn't even realize it, and it doesn't mean he wouldn't be good for women's issues, I think he would be very good for women's issues." She adds, "I don't think he's out there to destroy women or take things away or do any of that kind of stuff."
Even Jenner's friend, Jenny Boylan, can be heard saying, "Kill me now. Someone kill me now." Basically, everyone is uncomfortable, save for the bus driver, who declares he is also Republican. The awkwardness doesn't stop there, because then Jenner dives into why she would never vote for candidate Hillary Clinton. "Oh my God, yes, I would never ever ever vote for Hillary," she says. "We're done, if Hillary becomes president, the country is over."
Again, she can rightfully have her own opinion, but what makes the conversation hard to watch is how Jenner won't listen to what her friends have to say about Clinton or to their opinions about Trump. Rather than listening and having a civil chat from all sides about politics (does that ever really happen, though?), Jenner becomes opinionated and heated about it all.
The clip ends with pretty much everyone going to another room on the bus to escape Jenner's debate. Viewers will just have to tune into Sunday's episode to see how or if it gets resolved.
