Joint Chiefs: No change in transgender policy until Trump sends Pentagon direction – In other words, no ban as of yet. Why? Because you DO NOT make Armed Force policy through a tweet!!!! Proving yet again, as Anderson Cooper did yesterday in a must see video, Trump lied about consulting with generals before making that awful policy.
OnPolitics Today: Trump’s Mar-a-Lago trips cost more than trans soldiers’ health care – Speaking of another distortion Trump made in his tweet regarding costs . . .
The Daily 202: Growing GOP backlash to transgender troop ban underscores Trump’s political miscalculation – Yep! Even the GOP is pissed.
Trump’s trans military ban eschews years of research in favor of junk science from a hate group – Dear sadity, blase, snobby, cliquey Beltway media journalists, the Family Research Council is a hate group because of crap like this. So what if the group doesn’t outright call for the deaths of the LGBTQ community. Their lies and distortions undermine our lives and create chaos such as this.
Editor’s note – My eyes and ears are open about other issues and problems, such as Trumpcare and the situation regarding the Texas legislature and its attack on the trans community. However, I feel that Trump’s attack on our trans men and women in the military is right now the singular shining example of all of the lies, distortions, and scurrilous behind-the-scenes maneuvering which got him elected and is now creating monsters we are having to fight. It is also a perfect example of the astounding incompetence of the fool who is now situated in the White House.
Stay awake about EVERYTHING.
