Gays Do Not Have the Same Civil Rights as Heterosexuals

Title VII

The Department of Justice argued Wednesday that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 does not protect gay and lesbian workers from discrimination. This is a change from the previous administration’s position on the question. [BuzzFeed]

Lawyers under Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in federal court that a 1964 civil rights law does not protect a gay employee from discrimination.

The Department of Defense and Sex Reassignment–Costs

$2.4 million and $8.4 million

President Trump on Wednesday announced that he would ban transgender people from serving in the military. Trump cited the cost of medical care related to gender transition treatment as a primary reason for his decision. A Rand study estimates those costs at between $2.4 million and $8.4 million annually.

Note that the DoD spends 5x as much on Viagra. So there you go.

White House Purposely Published Sensitive Personal Information

How do you like them fucking apples?

The Donald Trump White House is nothing if not a bunch of vindictive assholes.

When the voter fraud (of which there is only one known case, of a Republic douchebag attempting to vote twice) committee was put together by that bastion of public security, Kris Kobach, they solicited comments from the public.

And didn’t tell the public who responded that they’d publish their names, email addresses, and physical mailing addresses.

What a basket of deplorables!

Donny Trump Jr. Tried to Collude with Russians, He Even Failed at That

Donny Trump Jr. is just as incompetent as his father.

Dummy tried to collude with Russia and failed. You know how the GOPers will spin it, right? He failed, so it didn’t happen.

It’s like the doofus who attempts to slit his wrists and fails. Dull blade. Well, this guy is dull alright.

Donald Trump Jr. is said to have arranged the meeting with the Kremlin-linked lawyer during the campaign after he was told he would be provided with details about Hillary Clinton.
