Caitlyn Jenner Explains Why She Wore a 'Make America Great Again' Hat

Monday Aug 7, 2017

Classic Caitlyn!

Caitlyn Jenner was spotted wearing one of President Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" hats last week, shortly after condemning him for announcing transgender people will be banned from the U.S. military. But Jenner recently spoke with TMZ and explained she didn't wear the Trump cap on purpose.

TMZ writes she was leaving her home to play golf last Thursday. Knowing she was taking her 1960 Austin-Healy convertible, Jenner would have to wear a hat - something to protect her hair. She rummaged through her closet and grabbed the "Make America Great Again" hat without looking.

TMZ writes:

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

"What he's doing to our community is absolutely fucking awful," Jenner told the website.

TMZ writes she "had a dilemma on her hands" - wear Trump's hat or ruin her hair. She chose the former.

TMZ adds:

She wanted to stop at a Starbucks for a latte but exercised caution ... 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.

Jenner said she's thinking about signing the hat, auctioning it off and donating the proceeds to a transgender group. Or she may burn it.

"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," Jenner told TMZ.
