Trump Demands Stay On Transgender Recruits Ruling

The Hill reports:

The Trump administration is asking a federal judge to delay a requirement to begin accepting transgender recruits to the military on Jan. 1. “Specifically, Defendants request that the Court stay the portion of its preliminary injunction requiring Defendants to begin accessing transgender individuals into the military on January 1, 2018, pending a decision by the D.C. Circuit on Defendants’ appeal,” the government wrote in a motion filed late Wednesday.

The administration and the plaintiffs have asked for a decision by noon Monday. In October, Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia blocked President Trump’s ban on transgender troops while a lawsuit against it is working its way through court. In July, Trump tweeted that he would ban transgender people from serving in the military in any capacity.

      It sucks that we’re even having this conversation. That Dolt45 (and his base) bigotry is ruining America.

    Hey Caitlyn Jenner… time to get your “MAGA” cap out!

    Wear it proudly!

    • netxtown

      I know why she spelled Caitlyn with a “C”…..

      • Treant

        Although that does mean she should have spelled it Caitlun.

      The ” reality ” TV superpowers never got together on this , did they ?

      • another_steve

        That fame and publicity whore is probably as we speak planning a new reality TV show to cash in.

        “Trump Betrayed Us – the Household”

        • Stephen Elliot Phillips

          Its a talk show, I heard. Caitlyn and susan sarandon are hosts.

          • another_steve

            I hope every person reading here has made a note-to-self not to ever in any way subsidize the career – the earnings – of Sarandon. No movies of hers. Nothing with her name on it.

            When you see her name, think “Susan Sarandon helped bring Donald Trump to the White House.”

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            as much as I love Joan and Bette I refused to watch her play bette in “Feud”.

          • Ninja0980

            My sister threw out her Susan Sarandon movies even before Trump won.

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            I have “The Hunger” on dvd…..Id burn it, but Bowie and Deneuve trump both-sides-are evil-sarandon. So Im keeping it

    • RobynWatts

      She #1. 🖕🏻

    • Tawreos

      Can’t we just vote to evict her from the LGBT family and declare her “She Who Shall Not Be Named”? The last meaningful she did was in the Olympics and has been a waste of oxygen ever since.

      • another_steve

        That she fully transitioned was admirable. That took courage and strength – particularly for a celebrity in the limelight.

        The way she handled it post-transition and attempted to monetize off it, though, was imo disgusting and reprehensible.

        • JCF

          I almost upvoted, except for “fully transitioned”. She CAME OUT as Trans, and that’s what is admirable. The specifics of her transition are no one’s business but her own.

          The assholery re her politics are EVERYONE’s business! [And why she can go f#ck herself]

          • another_steve

            By “fully transitioned” I mean that she at long last assumed the physical appearance she associates with “feminine.” Prior to that, she may have felt feminine inside but chose for whatever reasons not to physically assume a “full feminine appearance.” Or at least what she wanted her full feminine appearance to be.

            An appearance that, to my eyes, is a fairly stereotypical and culturally-defined “this is what a real woman looks like” appearance. Right out of a steamy 1950s paperback featuring the stereotypical “sexpot” of the day.

            But all power to her. May she find her bliss, whatever that is and whatever it looks like.

        I googled “another_steve @ joemygod.com best comment ever” and voila, it was already here! Yay you!

  • AJ Drew

    Oh good whoever, who degraded themselves enough to rub DT’s belly and make his brain twitch enough to think this was a good idea?

  • Tawreos

    I am guessing he is getting a little quiet heat from his christian base. I guess they finally realized that he is going to fuck them more than he will do anything to advance their agenda in a meaningful way.

  • AJ Drew

    So, apparently a POTUS *can* do a lot of damage without any actual legislation being enacted, it was just the past 44 Presidents who considered the whole 3-branches thing to be important.

    • Tawreos

      He probably figures if he can drag this out he will get lucky and a justice will die or retire so he will have majority control of all three.

      • AJ Drew

        maybe. DT’s greatest trick, real or not, is leaving us in limbo between “is he the greatest faker ever with an actual plan,” or… well, is he what he actually appears to be…?

      • Christopher

        No woman, who trusts her husband, treats them the way she treats hers.

        I’d bet real money that he cheated on her in the past, and now she won’t let him out of her sights.

        She won’t divorce him either, because of the Jeebs, and also because she wants to ride his coattails to the highest power he can obtain.

        • ETownCanuck

          (With a man)

          • Christopher

            No, I think it was a woman. Hence why she won’t let him be in a room with one alone.

        • jerry

          She’s been divorced before…first husband was later one of the creators of Cialis.

          • Oh, Parker

            Makes perfect sense.

        • Oh, Parker

          I’m sure she caught him on some AOL IndyM4M chat room. That’s where I used to cast my lines back in the day and closet cases like Pence were a dime a dozen. A baker’s dozen on most weeknights.

    • geoffalnutt

      He’ll be gone soon. Remember: he’s really, really stupid, did many traitorous things and then lied about them. Mueller knows it all by now.

    You already threw a goddam bone to your evangeligoons yesterday, and blowing up mideast peace in the process. You could’ve just let this one slide. I really hate you, Trump.

  • Igby

    Oh, the love that swills, I mean swells from his little, old heart.

  • S1AMER

    Look, if Trump doesn’t succeed immediately in sending all LGB-and-definitely-T people back into the closet or, possibly, to the ER or even the morgue, all of the many federal judges he’s appointing will do so not too many years down the road.

    Got rights? Enjoy them while you can, ’cause Trump and the GOP ain’t gonna let those rights last for long.

  • JohnJay

    I hate to say this, because it would mean dead innocent Americans and others… but I really think Trump’s actions yesterday will produce what amounts to many Benghazi-type events completely attributed to him. Let’s see him testify for 11 hours in 2019 on a democratic-called inquiry into his Benghazi. His speech started out “I have determined …”. I’d really like to hear how and why he “determined” now was the time to move the embassy to Jerusalem (seeing as his top 2 aides advised strongly against it).

    • AJ Drew

      Ah, but HRC, no matter what any individual thinks of her, DID sit through all those hearings because she believed in the process and governance. DT would never do that. DT does not believe that any board, legislative body, or person, or “God” has any rule over him, he’d never sit in judgment, period, he just wouldn’t, and what then? Truly, what then, especially if he’s still POTUS?

      • PickyPecker

        Handcuffs and leg shackles.

      • marshlc

        Yes, the one thing this last year has taught us is that if there is not a specific law against something, there is nothing but human decency to prevent it. Custom and tradition means nothing when an individual or party with no regard for human decency gets power. Hell, even if there IS a law, half the time it can be just flouted, and nobody knows what to do about it.

        Anyone who values due process and the rule of law needs to be working toward making sure things we care about are protected, and that laws have teeth. Every asshole with political ambitions in the world is watching what is happening the US, and rubbing their hands with glee.

        • AJ Drew

          Agreed, and huffing off PP’s reply below, who would cuff/shackle him? Like it or not he’s POTUS, it’s a huge precedent. Not that he wouldn’t deserve it, not that he doesn’t have any respect for the fact that that could happen to him, it’s that it is unprecedented, and who would actually do it? And is anyone actually legally qualified?

        • lymis

          “Limited government” depends on the honor and decency of both the governed and those who govern.

          Ironic, but unsurprising, that the people screaming the loudest for it are those who are least worthy of it.

      The only potential silver lining might be when massive numbers of troops are drafted for his Armageddon showdown, the transgendered would be universally exempt and not have to serve in the Pence regime.
