You can't gaslight in the era of the internet.  We know what you tweeted.  Go ahead, delete it, see if we forget.

I'm sure he just thought "How can I throw the most red meat to my base...?  Oh!  The Army and sicko men in dresses!  Perfect!"
 
2017-07-26 09:47:00 PM  
Does he even have the power to do this? I'm not sure if I've seen that asked. It requires a LOT of paperwork. These people get bored easily.

Can he actually do this? Just an executive order? He loves that crayon.

Listen he thought trans people were just like that silly, hairy guy from M*A*S*H trying to get discharged.  So silly.

M*A*S*H was set during the Korean War, right?  That was, what?  The 50s or 60s?  DAMNIT I'M SMART TOO, MIKEY

Yes, he is the CinC, he can order the military to adjust its policies, just like 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and the policies that followed were orders from POTUS.

Let's pretend that this wasn't their intention and they did not want a ban.

This means that the farking Commander in Chief is so farking dumb, he can't even understand what his own party wants. And he just shot his load all over the internet in the most embarrassing fashion while being completely wrong.

He also showed the military that he's willing to ban thousands of soldiers and Americans simply because they're different.

This is hilarious.  Trump is like the biggest loose cannon that ever rolled across a deck.

A study from the Rand Corporation estimated the cost of medical services for transgender individuals in the military at $2.4 million and $8.4 million out of a $6.2 billion medical budget for the military.

In terms of the military budget this is loose change you find under the cushions. Of a sofa you only bought last week.

For contrast:

total military spending on erectile dysfunction medicines amounts to $84 million annually, according to an analysis by the Military Times - 10 times the cost of annual transition-related medical care for active duty transgender servicemembers.

Can they play the "lawful order" gambit?

I'd like to see that.

What? This is a major republican victory! They should be having another Rose Garden party!

Sure, it's a little inconvenient to have that massive gaping bloody hole in your face, but at least that wart on your nose is gone!

F*ck Donald Trump.

"After consulting with my generals...", he Tweets.
He doesn't even realize that
a) they are not "his" generals, and
b) "his generals" HATE that he thinks they are

not only that, trump didn't name the generals in question.  a rather curious omission.

It shows everyone yet again that straight, white, Christian men are running the show. That's really all that matters to President Bannon.

That's because he's LYING. As usual. The only general he talked to is the General Dumbassery in his head.

If he would just low down a bit, he could let the left slip back into complacency.

I imagine the conservative congress members whispering among themselves, "No we meant start a war and send the trans in first, that is the fastest way to kill them off!"

Not saying they would wish dea......no wait they would, so fark them.

When I said I wanted our soldiers to be "hardened vets", this isn't what I was talking about!!!!!!

Sean Spicer stated quite clearly that tweets are official White House statements.

So maybe he shouldn't have said that, huh?

I thought my Student School Council was farked up (and it seriously was, us older kids lost an election and got a do offer,) we have nothing on President Trump's administration.

At what point does someone deal with him?  Can the Surgeon General demand a full physical/mental examination?  I know the doctor on a Star Trek ship could demand and overrule the captain on medical issues - in fact I am pretty sure a doctor can do the same in our military, there must be someone who can force him to get fully checked out.

AND it means his party hasn't yet figured that out about the CinC.

No. That party would be dead and gone. Instead, there would be 3-5 major political parties debating issues such as how to best implement universal healthcare.

The 25th Amendment.  It requires the GOP to put country ahead of party, though...so not gonna happen.

The Framers anticipated a President turning INTO a Trump, they just didn't anticipate that a substantial number of people would WANT a President Trump.

If liberals could speak to Americans with anything besides contempt, people might actually trust Dems to lead them.
 
2017-07-27 06:30:05 AM  
So Trump went "far beyond leaders' expectations" doesn't that mean a good thing?  Whenever I use that phrase that means I got way more than I wanted and I'm happy so are the Con's mad or are they elated?
