President Trump Just Shoved His Loyal Americans Right Back Into The Closet

Here in America you can be anything you want to be.  Believe in yourself, work hard and achieve your wildest dreams.

Well this is unless you are an American who happens to be trangender and dreaming of serving this country’s military.

If that happens to be you my friend, the American dream does not apply.  Recently everyone’s favorite Leader of the Free World, bumbling tweet-machine announced that transgender people serving in the military could no longer do so.  This group of loyal, country-serving Americans are the latest minority to get the “Big B” from our nation’s leader. Needless to say this latest ban has plenty of people in a confused stated of “What in the hell?”  Aside from an angry and confused public, the secretary of defense and other White House officials also seemed to be scratching their heads in confusion or throwing up a face palm.  The recent decision was made in such a haphazard way that the White House itself could not answer basic questions regarding the policy.

How will this be carried out?  Implemented?  Enforced?

What happens to the loyal military members who are in the process of transitioning?

What if they pay for the medications and surgeries in other ways such as out of pocket?  If it is not affecting tax payer money do they get to stay?

Of eight defense officials no one could say.  Not a single official could answer a single question because no one, including our President, has a clue what is going on here.  “That’s something that the Department of Defense and the White House will have to work together as implementation takes place and is done so lawfully,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said.  The country’s own Defense Secretary was only notified of the ban the day before it was so hastily announced.  That poor guy is going to have some serious damage control work to do when he returns from vacation.  To make matters worse, the ban was announced on Twitter.

Twitter!

Now I am certainly no politician and clearly the only army I am the head of is the one of little minions that I created, but it seems to me that if you are going to announce such a ban you should probably have some ideas of execution in place.  Snap decisions are for deciding what is for dinner or whether or not you splurge at the local Target Store and buy a new ottoman, not for making grand changes to a country’s military and human rights policy.  It is a bit concerning, considering the same man who snap tweets country bans has his pudgy, orange finger on the nuclear missile triggers.  Sleep tight America!

  1. I really wonder what goes on in his head!!! He really just seems to talk without thinking or having a remote plan in place of how to implement it all. I just dont get his reasonings behind this latest ban. He must be living in a past century as I thought we were all past this nonsense!
    Thank you for sharing this with us at #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back next week.

  2. being a Brit I am slightly obsessed with the fact that no-one has yet ‘dealt with’ The Donald!!! He is such an embarrassment to the USA – he comes across as ignorant, arrogant, illiterate, unhinged, uneducated, untrustworthy, deranged, damaging and downright dangerous….I can’t stop reading (fake) news about him and follow him on twitter. i am obsessed with commenting and tagging him in the hope that I become a target for one of his early hour crazies!!! It would be beyond belief if it were satire. honestly, you couldn’t write his shit!!!!

  3. bugger, i just wrotte you a lovely long reply to this post but used pinkbutterfly@cerdynvilla as my email so i think it might have got lost in the ether of internet space… hope not, I’d be interested in your thoughtsxx Well said by the way !

  4. This is insane. I hope to god it doesn’t pass…not everyone else can be this narrow minded????? I don’t know how you keep healthy blood pressure sometimes lol!! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst x

  5. I am trying as hard as I possibly can to not let this tweeter in chief be the death of me. He has overstepped every boundary and is clearly unfit to serve. Give me an I, give me an M, give me a P-E-A-C-H-!
    #resist #notmypresident #sad #Dreamteam Well said, my friend.

  6. Oh wow! I don’t know I am surprised, I really should be but it just gets more and more unbelievable. As always it seems to be tweet first, think later. So disappointing and yet another giant step backward! Thanks for sharing at #familyfun
