Caitlyn Jenner, Who Voted For Trump, Said She Would Defeat Him In Golf

She may have been harsh, but few would argue with her statement

Last night, transgender icon Caitlyn Jenner made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers to discuss the one-year anniversary of her transition, her controversial endorsement of Donald Trump, and what she thinks about the president 100 days into his term.


When Meyers asked her if she would take the president up on a round of golf, Jenner said she thought it would be good for transgender rights, but felt that Trump’s actions were seen as “toxic” by the LGBTQ community.

“I would’ve gone down there and had an opportunity to spend four hours with [Trump] on a golf course and discuss a lot of the issues, and that would’ve been a very good thing for [the transgender] community,” Jenner explained. “But when he [took away protection for transgender students], he’s toxic. I would get destroyed by the community if I did that.”

Then she couldn’t help herself when it came to lobbing a shot at the president’s golf game.

“I haven’t done it [played golf with Trump] ’cause I don’t think he wants to get beat by a 67-year-old trans woman. The man has an ego.”

That he does.

A few days prior, she opened up to Diane Sawyer about an earlier invitation from the president the night of the inauguration, and why she hasn’t taken him up on his offer.

Though we won’t see them on the links together anytime soon, few would doubt that the former decathlete, once deemed the world’s greatest athlete, knows her way around a golf course even better than our president, who seems to live on the course these days.

When the iPhone 11 debuted on September 10, it was met with less enthusiasm than the usual iPhone release. A lot of techies are holding off purchasing the latest gadget until Apple releases a phone with 5G technology.

A dramatic new feature on the iPhone 11 Pro is its three camera lenses. The three lenses give users the the original wide, plus ultrawide and telephoto options.

In an effort to avoid a dystopian sci-fi future where Artificial Intelligence knows pretty much everything about you, and a team of cops led by Tom Cruise run around arresting people for crimes they did not commit because of bad predictive analysis; Bernie Sanders and other Democratic candidates have some proposals on how we can stop it.

It's fun to go to a party, talk to strangers, and try to guess where they're from just by their accents and use of language. It's called 'soda' on the East Coast and 'pop' in the Midwest, right? Well, it looks like a new study has been able to determine where a Humpback whale has been and who he's been hanging out with during his awesome travels just from his song.

In 2009, the U.S. government paid $50 billion to bail out Detroit-based automaker General Motors. In the end, the government would end up losing $11.2 billion on the deal.

Government efforts saved 1.5 million jobs in the United States and a sizable portion of an industry that helped define America in the twentieth century.

As part of the auto industry's upheaval in the wake of the Great Recession, the United Automobile Workers (UAW) made sacrifices in contracts to help put the company on a solid footing after the government bailout.

Fake news is rampant on the internet. Unscrupulous websites are encouraged to create misleading stories about political figures because they get clicks.

A study published by Science Advances found that elderly conservatives are, by far, the worst spearders of fake news. Ultra conservatives over the age of 65 shared about seven times more fake information on social media than moderates and super liberals during the 2016 election.

Get ready for things to get worse.
