Caitlyn Jenner infuriates by wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ cap – apologizes and explains

Caitlyn Jenner just can’t seem to get out of her own way sometimes. The week after she publicly rips on Donald Trump for tweeting he plans to ban transgender people from the military, she drives to her golf club in a convertible wearing one of Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ caps. She has explained it all to TMZ and you can decide for yourself what you think of this fiasco: Caitlyn Jenner did not wear a “Make America Great Again” hat Thursday as a show of support for Donald Trump … it was a mistake tied to golf, a convertible, Starbucks and a purse.

Caitlyn tells TMZ she drove from her Malibu home to Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA, in a 1960 Austin-Healey convertible. Before leaving home she realized she needed a hat … something better than a golf visor to protect her hair. So she rummaged through the 10 hats in her closet and grabbed one without looking at the stitching.

She says when she got to the club she threw the hat on the floor of the car, and then spent an hour or so hitting some balls and left. When she got to the car she grabbed the hat and saw the inscription, and realized what she had done.

She tells us she was horrified because she now detests Trump after he tweeted about the military transgender ban. Caitlyn says, “What he’s doing to our community is absolutely f***ing awful.”

But Caitlyn had a dilemma on her hands … wear the hat home or screw up her ‘do. She chose the former, thinking no one was going to see her. She wanted to stop at a Starbucks for a latte, but exercised caution, and a mile from the coffee joint she switched to the golf visor and walked inside.

When Caitlyn left, she switched again, deciding to wear the Trump hat home. She got halfway to her property when she realized she left her purse at Starbucks, which contained, among other things, her cellphone. Caitlyn panicked and raced back to retrieve her purse, forgetting she was wearing the hat.

She ran inside, grabbed the purse and drove home. At some point she realized she still had the hat on but thought she could make it back undetected. She was wrong. Caitlyn says a photog snapped the pic somewhere between Starbucks and her Malibu home.

As for what to do with the hat, she’s thinking of signing it and auctioning it off and giving the proceeds to a transgender cause. On the other hand, she might just rip it up or burn it.

Caitlyn says, “I apologize to all of the trans community. I made a mistake. I will never do it again and I’m getting rid of the hat.”

4 Remarks

  1. What a load of BS. Why did she still have the hat? How could she put it on without looking at what is on it (I mean, the letters are pretty big)? What made her think that “not messing up my hair” is a good excuse for wearing a symbol of hate?

    Anyway, Cait, good luck making friends with the Trump crowd.

    What a bunch of shit – she can’t afford a new hairdo for her WIG? And she needed that coffee SO BAD that she forgot she was stabbing her community in the back? She’s a TINO – trans in name only, especially if it bothers her that little that Trump is a psychopathic monster that couldn’t give a fuck less for the LGBTQIA community!

    You know what they say. Bad press is better than no press. It keeps her in the spotlight.

    What ever happened to Sarah Palin?

  4. Just burn the damn cap, and be done with it. Sheesh girl! Get it together!
