    Since that idiotic series of tweets announcing a future ban of transgender people serving in the US military, some started a fun new hobby.

    The main reason listed was how much it costs to cover medical procedures for trans men and women, amounting to 2 to 8 million dollars. The hobby consists of looking up other expenses the military and the US administration has and just compare the two. It's fun.

    This thread won't address the fact that an orange coward that used his father's money to dodge service has the balls to kick out men and women actively risking their lives in their country's wars.
    It won't address the idiocy of announcing policy change through twitter or the fact that the second tweet appeared 9 minutes after the first leaving Pentagon officials to wonder "Oh crap, are we invading someone?"
    It won't address the lie that he talked it over with his generals because Pentagon declared it was completely surprised by it and Mattis was on vacation when he found out (was appalled by it)


    This is only about what other stuff costs.

    it;s so fun to see you veggies mention obama when the current president is Trump. trump is in charge, trump is spending money now, trump is cutting education and park spending and national park budgets and many more while wasting taxpayer money.

    how about we talk about what lincoln spent in the white house? how about washington. their spending is just as relevant now as obama's is.

    The military has a long history of not properly caring for its veterans via health care.

    I say transgenders are better off not being allowed in rather than being forced to serve and risk their lives only to find out their health care won't cover their needs.
