Shock and Awe: Trump Dumps Transgenders that Cost Too Much in Military

Once more, Trump tweets a major change in government/military without consulting the department heads affected by his tweet.

Shock

Calling someone up and informing him of change an hour before tweeting the new policy just doesn’t cut it. Trump said he consulted with his generals and military experts on getting rid of transgenders. If that’s a fact why so much chaos today?

Perhaps because there’s no plan to implement firing thousands of transgenders currently serving their country. In Trump’s tiny brain the money saved from this move could go towards building his stupid wall.

 “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming … victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.

Really?

The Pentagon appeared to be caught off guard by Trump’s announcement, and deferred to the White House when reached for comment.

James Mattis was on vacation at the time of Trump’s announcement, signaling a lack of coordination between the White House and the relevant agencies.

BREAKING NEWS:

  Top US General Says No Changes Yet To Transgender Policy

Odd optics:

Earlier this month, the House of Representatives voted down a measure that would have restricted funding for trans members of the military. The amendment would have prevented the defense department from providing medical treatment “related to gender transition” to service members, with an exception for mental health treatment.

Awe

Yet, here we are. Once again, our Liar-in-Chief has created chaos with a tweet. Why he decided to act so suddenly will probably always be a mystery because Trump doesn’t even know himself.

As It Stands, I stand in awe at the crap Trump pulls and manages to get away with.
