RE: Trump bans transgender from military
Looks like the military is not happy with Trump now, regardless of what dark helmet thinks. The military says they are ruled by laws and regulations and not twitter.

Apparently they are totally blindsided...

Some key Republicans in the Senate aren't happy either:

Quote:Multiple Republican senators broke with President Trump on Wednesday after he announced on Twitter that transgender troops would be banned from serving in the military.

In separate statements, GOP Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Joni Ernst (Iowa), Richard Shelby (Ala.) and Orrin Hatch (Utah) all criticized Trump for his decision that Obama-era rules allowing transgender troops to serve would be reversed.

McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, ripped the call and said that Trump shouldn't be making policy announcements via tweet.
...

“The statement was unclear," he added. "The Department of Defense has already decided to allow currently-serving transgender individuals to stay in the military, and many are serving honorably today. Any American who meets current medical and readiness standards should be allowed to continue serving."
...

"I don't think we should be discriminating against anyone," Hatch wrote. "Transgender people are people, and deserve the best we can do for them. I look forward to getting much more information and clarity from our military leaders about the policy the president tweeted today."

RE: Trump bans transgender from military
If I were transgendered, I'd be rejoicing.

One can only hope he will eventually broaden and expand this ban to include: women; gays; men; straights;
and basically everyone, with the possible exception of wealthy white orange-haired real estate tycoons.

"Hair Furor", indeed.

Until they don't.... the countless lawsuits and huge expense that are to follow will delay this for a long time.

RE: Trump bans transgender from military
It's like any of these discriminatory practices. It's the little things, the little humiliations. Forbidding them to use appropriate bathrooms. Announcing that they're lesser humans. Making sure that even when they do fight back and win their rights the rights are grudgingly given. It's fucking stupid playground bullshit writ large.

It's their chosen career, and they can't have it because some orange fuck wants to please some religious fucks with some meaningless gesture. Angry God I hope he dies soon.

Judges don't set military policy. And when LGBTQ issues and the military have clashed in court, the supremacy of military policy and the presidents power has won just about every time.

It's funny that Trump is considered commander in cheif, especially since he is a draft dodger http://www.politifact.com/punditfact/art...ft-dodger/

And the closest he has come to being a self professed war hero is his story over avoiding STDs http://people.com/politics/trump-boasted...l-vietnam/

Lol.

Trump never "dodged the draft." Draft dodging is illegal. Typical of "politifact." Owned by the Tampa Bay Times, a notorious liberal hack newspaper that endorses democrat candidates.
