Trump Spews Ignorant Word Salad In Weak Defense Of Transgender Ban (VIDEO)
Trump Can’t String Together Words Coherently
In a pathetic attempt to defend his ignorant ban of transgender Americans serving in the United States military – delivered without any warning via Twitter – Donald Trump offered up a bizarre string of words that did little but heap self-praise on his own head, while doing nothing to address the actual controversy.
In other words, like the majority of anything that comes out of Trump’s mouth, it was a string of blustery nonsense that can be summed up with “TRUMP GOOD.”
(He’s not, of course – we all know that.)
Trump offered no facts. He gave no argument as to why transgender people should not be allowed to serve. No. What Trump did, in between golfing and starting a nuclear crisis with North Korea, was stand in front of cameras and issue a word salad, doubling down on his own ignorance.
“Look, I have great respect for the community. I think I have great support — or I’ve had great support from that community. I got a lot of votes. But the transgender — the military is working on it now. They’re doing the work. It’s been a very difficult situation. It’s been a very complicated issue for the military, it’s been a very confusing issue for the military, and I think I’m doing the military a great favor.”
Got a lot of votes from whom? The transgender community does contain more people than just Caitlyn Jenner. And no word on how a guy who dodged the draft five times knows what the military needs. In fact, no one in the military knew he was going to do this. As the Huffington Post reported:
“The Pentagon was blindsided by Trump’s announcement last month, which he made on Twitter, and has since been referring questions to the White House. If anything, this was precisely what military leaders did not want to do, since they lifted the ban last year after an exhaustive review of military readiness policies.”
It’s almost like electing a guy who knows absolutely nothing about governance, the military, or world affairs was a bad thing. Who knew?
Watch Trump bluster his way through his trangender military ban in the clip below. It takes Trump only a minute into his press conference to start issuing nonsense about transgender people and the military – two things of which he knows nothing.
Can someone please take this confused old man back to New York?
