Jon To Caitlyn: Congratulations! Welcome To Being A Woman In America

“It’s especially brave of Caitlyn Jenner to do this, because we all know the media. They’re awful. And now we’re going to have to listen to a lot of people saying awful things about this,” Jon said on The Daily Show Tuesday. In the first set of clips, however, pundits called Caitlyn’s coming out “courageous” and “an important cultural milestone.” Jon was taken by surprise, saying, “That was actually great. I mean, obviously some people were dicks, but today we’re not going to let them ruin it. Because it’s really heartening to see that everyone is willing to not only to see Caitlyn Jenner as a woman, but to waste no time in treating her like a woman.”

“You see, Caitlyn, when you were a man, we could talk about your athleticism, your business acumen,” Jon said. “But now you’re a woman, which means your looks are really the only thing we care about.”

“Caitlyn Jenner, congratulations. Welcome to being a woman in America.”
