Breaking: Trump Signs Order Restricting Transgender Soldiers From Military Service
Remember how Trump signed an order restricting transgender soldiers in the military (see BREAKING: Donald Trump Bans Transgenders in the Military. Leftists Lose Their Crap! and BOOM: Ted Cruz Blasts Liberals Allowing Transgenders in Military)? Well, that order is now coming to life. Like a closeted cross dresser at the local dive on ladies' night. The ban is moving forward and the left is predictably angered, but they're fresh out of ninnymuggin insults, having used up all their stock to cry "NAZI!" toward everyone and their great aunt Ruth. That must be frustrating.
President Trump on Friday ordered the Pentagon to halt medical treatment for transgender troops and determine within six months whether they can remain in the military.
The president's memorandum is aimed at rolling back the Obama administration's policy of open transgender service, a senior White House official said.
"It identifies a number of factors to be considered, things like military effectiveness, lethality, unit cohesion, military resources, etc., but then indicates that it is up to [the Defense Department], and with respect to the Coast Guard [the Department of Homeland Security], to determine how to address transgender individuals currently serving," the official said.
Kudos to the Trumpster for following through on his promise here. This new policy will help the military spend its budget way more effectively. Transgender healthcare can be quite costly, what with all the cosmetic surgeries and therapy. For those who don't kill themselves.
Maybe none of this would have happened had military benefits not included trannycare in the first place (see House Says Pentagon Can Now Fund Sex Changes for Transgender Troops). The left demanded special attention for LGBTers and now the military can't afford to give that special attention. Their solution? No more troops who need special care. Forgive my bigotry, but I don't exactly pity them.
Tough luck. I'm sure Stephohknee can relate.
