Caitlyn Jenner was asked if Trump has met with her regarding LGBT rights, as she has requested. “No,” she admitted. “He’s been busy lately. I understand that. I do a lot of political things. I would say 80, 90 percent of it is behind the scenes. I get more accomplished that way,” Jenner insisted.


“Politics is a dirty business. Let’s be honest,” and she went on to assert, “Hillary Clinton was out there looking for dirt on Trump. Trump was looking for dirt on Hillary. This is smear campaigns.” She further said, “Everyone’s talking to everybody. Recently, Trump was over there [in Europe]. And I think it’s good we have communications [with Russia].”

“We have to get somebody in there who can straighten things out. He’s shaken a lot of things up since he’s been in there and I think from that standpoint, that’s good. Give the guy some time. It’s been what, six months? Let’s give the guy some time.”


Ben Affleck’s ‘Batman’ Script Was Scrapped

Matt Reeves, who replaced Ben Affleck as the director for the upcoming Batman film, revealed Wednesday he will be starting from scratch when it comes to the script for the project.

Reeves told MTV’s “Happy Sad Confused” podcast that he’s “excited” to be starting fresh for The Batman.

When asked if he was using Affleck’s script — which was crafted when the star was directing the film — Reeves replied, “No, it’s a new story. It’s just starting again. I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be really cool.”


Affleck stepped aside as director of the new film in January to focus on taking on his role as the Dark Knight. He had co-written the now-defunct script with Chris Terrio and Geoff Johns.

Reeves said he planned on a “noir” take of Batman for his script, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It’s unclear if the new director plans of keeping Joe Manganiello in the script, who was cast as villain Deathstroke in Affleck’s story.


Reeves’ announcement comes as his new movie War for the Planet of the Apes hits theaters this weekend. The film has already received positive reviews, creating more anticipation for what Reeves’ story for The Batman.
