ACLU Sues Trump Over 'Appalling' and 'Bigoted' Transgender Ban

Jake Johnson, staff writer

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed suit on Monday against President Donald Trump over his directive banning transgender people from joining the U.S. armed forces.

Good point made about the basis in careful study (existing policy) as opposed to speculation and ill will.


#4

Whose “trans agenda”?


#5

DJT is “appalling, bigoted,” and I would add, diabolical no matter what he puts his tiny hands, cruel heart, and empty head to. His cruelty is particularly virulent when directed at fellow human beings whose lives and livelihoods he puts in jeopardy with his inhuman, ill-conceived dicta.

Trump’s trans ban has been in place for less than 1 week and liberals heads are exploding, yet not a peep for 7.5 years of Obama’s administration with the same ban in place.

Clinton - 8 years with trans ban.

Stop with the faux outrage. Stop the hypocrisy.

Wow. How does Obama’s 7.5 year ban on trans hit ya?
We know - you’re fine with it.

Then how did all those trans folks get into the military, highly trained and relied upon? It’s only that they couldn’t be out until Pres.Obama ordered that they be free to identify. The problem now is that they’ve identified and djt’s reversal of the order puts them in position to be discharged.

Nothing faux here.

And did you see the video of Sec’y Mattis reassuring an informal group that ‘we’ll get this worked out’? What djt wants done is undoable. It would do more harm to military readiness than continuing to provide hormone therapy to those who serve.

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was repealed in 2010 during President Obama’s FIRST term. DJT’s stated and unstated sole purpose in his prez-a-duncey is to undo all that President Obama managed to accomplish while dealing with an obstreperous, outright hostile Congress. And the diabolical dimwit’s actions to date have proven that out.


#10

I think the whole transgender thing - which will lose in court because ultimately its discrimination, is the same as the white supremacy - look at the right hand while you don’t see what the left hand is doing. The left hand is starting a world war on two fronts. This really is distraction.

Distraction at everyone’s expense. SAD!
