Report: Trump Being Encouraged By Advisers to Dance With Caitlyn Jenner at Inauguration
Could Donald Trump share an Inauguration night dance with Caitlyn Jenner on Friday?
According to a report by the New York Post‘s Page Six, the President-elect is being pushed by his advisers to dance with the I Am Cait star on Friday night during the Inauguration.
“The image of Trump dancing with Caitlyn would send a strong message that he supports gay rights and trans rights,” an unnamed Republican told the Post. “A picture is worth a thousand tweets.”
Jenner will be attending the Inauguration, according to People, as a guest of the American Unity Fund — a conservative nonprofit that works for advancing the cause of freedom and equal opportunity for LGBTQ Americans.
“Caitlyn has been a Republican all her life and she sees this as an opportunity to represent and defend the LGBTQ community within the party,” a source close to Jenner told People.
Republicans need help understanding LGBTQ ?️? issues and I’m here to help!

But as for the dance, Jenner’s publicist was mum.
“Can’t deal in hypotheticals,” the publicist told the Post. “We’ll just have to wait and see.”
UPDATE: Our friends at GossipCop.com report that Jenner’s team is now calling the story “absurd.”
