Donald Trump finally found someone to come to his inauguration party. The president elect has been making headlines for weeks thanks to his inability to book any big name musicians or celebrities to perform at or attend his inauguration on Friday, January 20. Now it looks like Trump has found a friend in Caitlyn Jenner.
The reality star and Olympic athlete has been a vocal supporter of the Republican Party throughout the election, a stance that often resulted in heated debates with her friends and members of LGBTQ groups on her former E! series I Am Cait.
Trumps’ Vice President Elect Mike Pence has been clear in his stance against LGBTQ group and women’s health, including his efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. For his part, Trump has his own laundry list of anti-female remarks and political decisions, making Jenner’s upcoming appearance as a transgender woman at the inauguration even more of a head scratcher.
In August, Jenner appeared on Bill Simmons‘ HBO series Any Given Sunday and said she wasn’t supporting one specific candidate. “I think the Republican side, although I’ve been very disappointed with them over the last 10 to 20 years, has a better opportunity to bring this country back to, really, as close as you can to what it was,” said Jenner. “I have kind of positioned myself with the Republican party to try to help these people understand. [To help] the Republican party understand what the issues are for the LBGT community.”
One person, and probably the only person who will likely be supportive of Jenner’s attendance at Trump’s inauguration, is her son-in-law, Kanye West. Prior to West cancelling his Saint Pablo Tour and spending a week in the hospital for exhaustion, he told the crowd at his San Jose show in November that had he voted in the 2016 election, it would have been for Donald Trump.
We’re pretty sure we know one Kardashian who isn’t going to be happy with either West or Jenner supporting Trump.
