Trump advisers: President dancing with Caitlyn Jenner at inauguration would ‘heal’ the LGBTQ community

Published

Some of Donald Trump’s advisers are reportedly urging the president-elect to share at least one dance on inauguration night with Caitlyn Jenner, the former Olympic athlete turned conservative trans activist.

The New York Post‘s notorious Page Six gossip column said on Thursday that key aides to Trump believe that seeing the Republican president dancing with a famous trans woman will “heal” the division between LGBTQ Americans and the incoming administration.

“It’s a brilliant idea,” said an anonymous Trump staffer to Page Six.

“The image of Trump dancing with Caitlyn would send a strong message that he supports gay rights and trans rights,” the aide said. “A picture is worth a thousand tweets.”

Jenner’s publicist, however, refused to speculate as to whether the dance will happen.

“Can’t deal in hypotheticals,” the rep said. “We’ll just have to wait and see.”

Mediaite.com said, “Jenner will be attending the Inauguration, according to People, as a guest of the American Unity Fund — a conservative nonprofit that works for advancing the cause of freedom and equal opportunity for LGBTQ Americans.”

Jenner, once the husband of Kris Jenner and patriarch of the Kardashian clan, transitioned to female in 2015, but has held on to her lifelong Republican beliefs.

On Wednesday, she tweeted, “Republicans need help understanding LGBTQ issues and I’m here to help!”

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
