Trump is OK with M2F transgendered people, just not OK with women

Reinvent that, Mr. Trump.

Can we infer from Andy Borowitz's report that Trump is still down on women but M2F people are OK because they are really men? Read on.

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—After rattling many of his supporters by expressing tolerance toward transgender people, the Republican front-runner Donald J. Trump clarified on Friday that he still opposes women who were born women.

“The media has, per usual, tried to blow my words out of proportion,” Trump said on the Fox News Channel. “Just because I happen to think transgender people deserve our understanding in no way means that I feel that way about women who were born women.”

Trump said that any attempt to twist his words to apply to “women in general” was deeply offensive to him. “I have made my views about women very clear and to suggest that I have somehow changed those views is really, really hurtful,” he said.

Across the nation, Trump supporters who had been alarmed that the candidate had seemingly strayed into something resembling empathy were greatly relieved by his clarification.

END SATIRE. I figured you would appreciate a little humor today from Andy Borowitz at the New Yorker.
