(Talking Points Memo)   White House press secretary Sarah "Huckabeast" Huckabee Sanders won't say whether transgender individuals will be thrown out of the military after President Donald Trump announces ban. Most likely because that announcement came out of nowhere   ( talkingpointsmemo.com) divider line

So she won't answer a question to which she doesn't know the answer.

That seems reasonable.

It's reasonable that the public spokesperson for the most powerful executive government on the planet doesn't know anything about an intentionally published statement from that executive government's highest individual?

Don't you think reasonable would be to have a strategy in place and not just wake up and say hey no more trans in the military?

You mean the answer Trump already provided?  Doesn't that make her out to be a moron and not good at her job?

She said Trump announced the ban "based on a military decision,"

Yeah. It wasn't just plucked put of his ass or anything. It was a military decision.

Isn't this something that needs to be voted on?  Or at least talked about by people who we vote for?

I'm pretty sure voting needs to be involved somehow.

Five to ten times more

So, question for you... after you have been lambasted and shown to be a fool by the fark community in this thread,

Do you actually feel shame and foolishness, or are you more ardent in your stance?

A "military decision" by a man who dodged the draft 4 times due to "bone spurs". Because he is so in-tune with what the military needs.

What was supposed to happen today? D2Sjr and Manafort were to testify in public today about their meeting with Russian agents.

Trump throws trans smoke bomb that has no force of law or even policy change.

"It's not meant to be anything more than that," Sanders said. "And it's simply about - obviously it's a very difficult decision. It's not a simple one."

It IS a simple one, because it came from a simpleton.

The Half-Scoop/Manafort shiatshow hasn't been scheduled to be public for the better part of the last week.

The other guy they subpeonaed was supposed to be, but for whatever reason, that also became a closed-door thing.

Today's bullshiat is just Trump being everything people warned he would be.

He didn't provide an "answer". An "answer" would have stated things like a timetable, and whether current military people would be allowed to serve out their enlistment, and if they would be compensated for time lost if they were kicked out. Trump provided none of this. There are no answers to about a million questions, of which I just asked 3 important ones.

The timing for this discriminatory policy is incredibly convenient. What's going on with the ACA vote today?

To REALLY channel The Scream, you need to stretch it vertically, too. Personally, I'd go with a Dali.

I swear, I wanted to punch my monitor every time she said this was a "military decision", as if it was an operational hinderance.  It wasn't.  It was an "Ewww, they're icky!" decision and that all there is to it.
 
2017-07-26 03:59:14 PM  
What about transgender press secretaries and would that affect anyone?
 
2017-07-26 03:59:16 PM  

backhand.slap.of.reason: Something big is coming.


No, that implies strategy, planning and rational thought.

Trump simply has no impulse control.

Oh. Sorry for bothering her. We should bother Trump with our questions.

Oh, Trump is busy, he should hire a person to just answer questions for him... wait a minute..

To be fair, what was she supposed to say? There are no details on this. Just like subby said, it came out of nowhere. I'm not gonna say that I feel sorry for her here, but I sure don't expect an answer on something this farking random coming out of the Angriest Thumbs on Twitter.

Well, based on history, complete failure.

What a f**king moron. Why would you want to ban ANYONE who wants to serve, and is capable of such service?
This makes no sense what so ever.
Today they're booting out transfolks. Tomorrow is it gays? Muslims? Women?

Too much strategery.  More simple explanation.., after trashing Jeff Sessions, Donnie pissed off the racist Keebler Elf crowd.  Some New Yorker trashing the Southern Good Ol Boy to save his own skin?  Sure to alienate a large chunk of his base.  This is simply his attempt to rally them back.
