Trump's Reason for Banning Trans People from Military: "Too Many Drugs"

Featured Posts

Marilyn MonHoe

"President Donald Trump started winding down his less-than-thrilling state visit to the United Kingdom on Wednesday with a sit-down interview with one of England’s worst global exports, Piers Morgan. Over the course of the more than half-hour conversation, aired on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, Trump claimed he banned transgender troops because they take so many “drugs,” equated climate change and weather, and talked Meghan Markle.

Asked about the hypocrisy of proclaiming his support for the LBGTQ community during Pride even as his administration carries out a ban on transgender troops in the U.S. military, Trump claimed the real issue was “drugs,” insisting that you’re not allowed to take prescriptions in the service.

“They take massive amounts of drugs,” Trump said. “They have to, and also—and you’re not allowed to take drugs, you’re in the military, you’re not allowed to take any drugs, you take an aspirin... and they have to, after the operation, they have to, they have no choice, they have to. You would actually have to break rules and regulations to have that.”

When Morgan pointed out that the Pentagon forks over tons of money to subsidize Viagra for servicemen—dwarfing the cost of medical care for trans troops—Trump nevertheless insisted “I didn’t know they did that,” adding, “It is what it is.”

This is a 2017 study from the Military Medicine Journal on the amounts of Anti-Inflammatory prescriptions that active duty service members received from 2006 to 2014:

"During 2006, the number of soldiers who received NSAID prescriptions (i.e., utilizers) was 348,031, which was approximately 69% of the total active duty population. In 2014, that number increased to 418,579, or approximately 82% of the total active duty population. The total number of NSAIDs that were prescribed to soldiers during 2006, 2011, and 2014 was approximately twice the number of utilizers, demonstrating that many soldiers were either being prescribed more than one NSAID or were receiving multiple prescriptions for a given NSAID over the course of a year."

Basically Trump is giving bullshit answers on why he banned Trans people from the military, making up stuff as usual.

F*ck him. "You can't take pain meds in the military" goes along with his weird "military" school upbringing in which "military" meant not crying while you got your a** beat then dodging the draft. It goes without saying most people in the military are on stimulants and painkillers because its hellish work, even on base.

No one said that they were surprised tho? I posted this article to further illustrate how he makes things up to further his agenda. It’s definitely not surprising but that doesn’t mean that people shouldn’t discuss when the President of the United States actively engages in lies and deception.

Really sorry  . I,m not a u.s citizen so it's probably not best for me to bring out such a comment which  be offensive nor in a position to comment regarding this

 Your point was quite valid 

Don't worry sis I’m not offended at all, I just wanted to clear up any misunderstandings that you might have had :hug:

Look at some of these quotes that our “Stable Genius” has made:

 

‘I had some beautiful pictures taken in which I had a big smile on my face. I looked happy, I looked content, I looked like a very nice person, which in theory I am.'

'The beauty of me is that I’m very rich.'

(On the Duchess of Cambridge) 'Who wouldn’t take Kate’s picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on, Kate!'

'I think I am actually humble. I think I’m much more humble than you would understand.'

'I’m intelligent. Some people would say I’m very, very, very intelligent.”

“I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke.'

'Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest – and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.'

'Being nice to Rocket Man hasn't worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won't fail.’ (Kim Jong-un came to power in 2011).

'My father gave me a small loan of a million dollars.'

'While Bette Midler is an extremely unattractive woman, I refuse to say that because I always insist on being politically correct.'

(On exporting goods to China) 'Listen, you m-----f------, we're going to tax you 25 percent!'

(To Cher) 'I don’t wear a 'rug'— it’s mine. And I promise not to talk about your massive plastic surgeries that didn’t work.'

'I think Viagra is wonderful if you need it, if you have medical issues, if you’ve had surgery. I’ve just never needed it. Frankly, I wouldn’t mind if there were an anti-Viagra, something with the opposite effect. I’m not bragging. I’m just lucky. I don’t need it. I’ve always said, "If you need Viagra, you’re probably with the wrong girl."'

(On Puerto Rico) 'This is an island surrounded by water, big water, ocean water.'

'People love me. And you know what? I've been very successful. Everybody loves me.'

:sharon:

Many trans people are not on drugs, its only trans people who are transitioning. Also, many soldiers are drug addicts. Also, many soldiers with health issues take prescribed drugs.
