We wonder what the LGBT community will have to say about this one!
At the Time 100 Gala in New York City on Tuesday, Caitlyn Jenner praised Donald Trump for his recent comments about the transgender community's fight to use the bathrooms of their choosing. Both Jenner and Trump were at the lavish event as honorees of the mag's "100 Most Influential People" list.

Essentially, D.T. revealed that he doesn't believe the government should intervene where it concerns bathroom use. The mogul even called out Cait specifically, saying she could use any bathroom in Trump Tower.
Given Trump's surprisingly progressive statements, the 66-year-old complimented the presidential candidate, gushing:
"This toast, actually started, in a bathroom. Actually, bathroom issues right now in my life seem to be in the forefront. Actually, on that issue I just want to say also – One little trans woman walking down the street had to go, I looked up and who did I see but the Trump Tower. Last week Donald Trump said I could use any bathroom I wanted in the Trump Tower. So of course I veered right in there – took care of myself."
Wow! What a poignant anecdote… talk about crazy timing on that one! We can't believe the timing on that one!
The activist also went on to joke:
"I obeyed all the rules, I promise you, I didn't throw any feminine products down the toilet. And it actually worked out quite well. It was very good."
Ha! How funny.
The accolades comes on the heels of Jenner's complicated foray into politics. While the beauty identifies as a Republican, she recently has been more open to liberal ideas and candidates thanks to her trans friends like Candis Cayne.
While we imagine the reality star's new pals won't be too thrilled about this development given Mr. Trump's disturbing views on women, we're glad to see her sticking up for such an important issue.
So, do YOU think Caitlyn should have praised Donald?
