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!
