Caitlyn Jenner has made no secret of her staunch republicanism — despite the party’s regressive views on the LGBT issues.
Republicans need help understanding LGBTQ ?????????? issues and I'm here to help!

For whatever reason, Donald Trump’s team reportedly thinks that if the Donald dances with Caitlyn at the inauguration that it will — in some way — show that his administration supports the LGBT community.

“It’s a brilliant idea,” a member of the incoming administration told me.
Besides mollifying the LGBTQ community — wary of conservative Republicans in general, and of Trump in particular — dancing with Jenner could mend fences within the party.
“Time heals all wounds,” one GOPer pointed out.
Bruce Jenner was a stalwart Republican long before the parent of six (10 if you count stepkids) transitioned into Caitlyn.
“The image of Trump dancing with Caitlyn would send a strong message that he supports gay rights and trans rights,” the Republican said. “A picture is worth a thousand tweets.”
Jenner’s publicist said, “Can’t deal in hypotheticals. We’ll just have to wait and see.”
