More like a fire hose attached to a refinery spraying gasoline on a forest fire. This is a a short post, because these Tweets speak for themselves. I will only add that this is the most un-presidential, un-American, degrading and despicable thing he as done so far. If his “generals” and “military experts” do not immediately denounce this, they are cowards and equally as disgusting as Donald J. Trump.
ANYONE willing to sacrifice their life for our country should not be turned away because of gender, whether born that way, or corrected to reflect their true selves. Patriotism and loyalty is a trait not associated with any physical characteristic. It is obviously not one that is shared by our current President. This is a low in our country’s history, not because of this single issue, but because of what it represents. It is a distinct, indelible line in the sand that says we as a country have decided that only some of the people matter. The needs of the few are more important than the needs of the many and that needs of the wealthy are the most important. I can only hope history looks back at this as a small bump in an otherwise righteous trajectory, not as the cliff where our nation met its end in a fiery, gasoline-soaked, fall. It’s my hope, though hope is in is short supply these days.
