Some follow up thoughts on Caitlyn Jenner

Caitlyn1A little while back I wrote a blog when Caitlyn first appeared on Vanity Fair.  I was amazed at how stunning she looked.  Transitioning from a man to a woman is not an easy thing to pull off.  So I started to wonder about some things…..

Did all those years with the Kardashians help train Caitlyn to become the newest fashion maven?  Her picture is everywhere now, wearing this or that.  Apparently she has very good taste in clothes, although to me it’s hard to find a 6’2″ large boned person very graceful, especially in high heels. Her hands still look very manly, to me.  But, she does have all kinds of advice from her children about her clothing choices, so I am sure she will be dressed to the nines at all time.  No more running out for coffee in track suits like the old “Bruce with Boobs” days.

I also couldn’t help but wonder how Caitlyn looks when there isn’t a whole staff of hair and people making her beautiful.  I mean, I can see it for the photo shoot, but what do you do on a Monday morning?  When most people roll out of bed after a long weekend of partying or dressing up, they might look a little disheveled.  Oh wait, maybe like this:

I think, overall, that Bruce Jenner bided his time until exactly the right moment to reveal his transition.  We are more accepting about most things hetro/homo/trans.  Bruce built up the anticipation beautifully, especially with the Diane Sawyer interview.  Now people wait with bated breath to see where she is going, with who, and, most importantly, what she is wearing.

Good job, Caitlyn.

P.S.  I’m still waiting to see who she will date.  She has been linked with another transgender, but it could just be a friend.

Dear Good People of America,

Are we actually “entertaining” the thought of making this man President?  Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States, DONALD TRUMP!

He was center of controversy last night again, in the first Republican debate.  He came out with all guns blazing.  His latest enemy is now Megan Kelly, the Fox News Moderator who asked him the tough questions and called him on some remarks he has made.  Which he has conveniently forgotten, and is going to look them up, btw.  He calls his running mates “contestants”. like the Presidential race is a reality game show.  He was up until 4 a.m. this morning with his twitter wars.

Is this the man we want to represent us to other countries?  Can you imagine him at a State dinner, berating the staff and offending visiting dignitaries?  “Hey your wife is a fat pig, reminds me of Rosie O’Donnell, I don’t think we want to do business with your country”.  Or “Is your wife so ugly she has to wear a veil and a sack at all times to keep from scaring people?”

While I think he DOES have a few valid points about how to change this country for the better, he is a narcissist, a bully, and a boor.  He needs to show compassion, level-headedness, and intelligence, all of which I’m afraid he is seriously lacking.  He is like a bull in a china shop in places where tip toeing through the tulips may be better.  And sometimes discretion really is the better part of valor.

Not with Donald though.  He says it like it is.  Fine and dandy for a reality TV show that makes money by entertaining the audience, but not necessarily an admirable trait in politics.

I won’t go into all the details on what the Golden Child said.  I will leave that for your own viewing pleasure, if you haven’t watched the debate yet.  You are in for a great time at The Donald Trump Show!
