‘You Are Not A Burden’: Jewish Celebrities Tweet Out Against Trump’s Transphobic Military Ban
On Wednesday, the aged block of cheddar cheese that’s currently governing our country tweeted out that he would be reinstating a ban on transgender citizens serving in the military. Unsurprisingly, he announced the ban on his favorite presidential platform — Twitter.
The liberal and, let’s be honest, evolutionarily evolved world exploded in response to Trump’s brash and arbitrary decision to ban healthy human beings from serving in the armed forces because they cost America one fifth as much in medical care costs we spend on Viagra.
Mr. Trump never was very good at concealing his priorities.
See what the Jewish celebrity world had to say about this week’s stain on American history.
current mood: disgusted and embarrassed that @realDonaldTrump is our president. this is not the America my family fled eastern europe for.

I hope deep down Trump voters realize the increasing amount of psychological & perhaps even physical damage they’ve done to fellow Americans

Like they say, if you can’t beat ‘em, tweet (at) ‘em.
But let’s also try to beat ‘em, yeah?
