Whether or not you voted for Trump, you were probably pretty happy to see his plans to ban transgender people, aka people with a serious mental illness, from serving in the military.
Well, that is if you were a liberal, in which case your head probably exploded for the 3,451st time since he was elected.
So far, Trump’s proposed transgender military ban has been one of his most sensible policies so far, although sadly, while most of the media has been zeroed in on sexual abuse allegations, the story of a federal court partially blocking his ban slipped under the radar.
Not only that, but the Pentagon has now dropped a massive bombshell that is also largely being swept under the radar in the middle of “Hollywoodgate” and the Roy Moore accusations:
The Pentagon just paid for a soldier’s gender reassignment surgery for the first time in history.

According to The Hill:
Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said in a statement shared by a BuzzFeed News reporter that an active-duty military member received sex-reassignment surgery Tuesday in a private hospital.
“Because this service member had already begun a sex-reassignment course of treatment, and the treating doctor deemed this surgery medically necessary, a waiver was approved by the director of the Defense Health Agency,” White said. “The Supplemental Health Care Program will cover this surgery in accordance with the Department’s interim guidance on transgender Service members.”
While it goes without saying, this is exactly what conservatives have been warning about for years!
The last thing we need to be doing with our armed services is paying for them to mutilate their genitalia and pretend they’re the opposite sex! Our defense budget should go for the security of our nation and our allies, not towards the freak social experiment of the Obama era!
Tweet out your disgust to the Department of Defense and let them know that as an American citizen you do not want your tax dollars to be used to fund the validation of this mental illness!
