YOUR DAILY DYSTOPIA | 2017.07.27

 

Utter jerkoff, popular vote loser, Russian supported Presidential candidate and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп banned Transgender people from serving in the military unexpectedly yesterday.

The reason for the ban? A Missouri Republican lobbied the White House in recent weeks to remove the payment of hormone therapies and surgeries from Military health care.

Representative Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), who proposed an amendment on the defense authorization bill to ban the Pentagon from paying what Hartzler called “transition surgeries,” as well as hormone therapy, had been lobbying the White House for help to get her bill passed. Instead, Трамп decided unilaterally to just ban Transgender people completely.

“I mean, my bill was intended to hurt Transgender people, but not like THAT,” Hartzler reportedly said while asking people to confirm their gender with her before they went to the bathroom at a local Starbucks.

Speaking of bigotry, one of the claims that Donald Трамп has made, along with Dolores Umbridge impersonator Representative Vicky Hartzler, is that paying for the medical expenses of Transgender people in the military is, ‘too expensive.’ But is that true?

According to Conservative Thinktank the Rand Institute, the cost for the military to pay for transgender medical care is somewhere between $2.4 million to $8.4 million a year. In comparison, one F-35 fighter costs $164,300,000. And the overall budget for the military this year is $696,000,000,000. Meaning this policy saves 0.000352941% of the overall military budget.

When informed of this news, Трамп told aides, “Hey, that’s not chump change, that’s probably enough money for something better, like having the Blue Angels fly over Mar-A-Lago while I’m golfing. Have you been to Mar-A-Lago? Seriously, you should go, the chicken scampi is fantastic. Just fantastic. You should try it.”

Yeah, anyway, Donald Трамп is dumb and is bad at finance and math.

Y’know, getting slightly serious for a moment, as a reminder, every trip that Donald Трамп takes to go golfing costs (using very conservative estimates) $2 million per trip.

That means Трамп has spent at least $14 million in taxpayer money to go golfing. Which is just under twice the amount of $8.4 million that (at the highest possible estimate) medical care for Transgender military personnel would cost. Some estimates of Трамп’s trips to Mar-A-Lago are pegged at $3.9 million per trip.

If that’s true, American taxpayers have forked over $29 million to Трамп to play golf at his own private resort, which is 3 times the cost of the highest possible estimate of the cost for transgender military personnel’s medical care.

When informed of this news, Трамп told aides, “Have you guys had the chicken scampi at Mar-A-Lago. Let me tell you, it’s fantastic. I don’t eat it, that’s what my friend Jerry told me. He’s a great guy. Beautiful. He was a Boy Scout, his wife was a girl Scout, and they love it. And the meatloaf. I love the meatloaf. They don’t make it right at the White House. Meatloaf and cake. There’s a singer, did you know that there’s a singer named Meatloaf? That’s his real name! True fact. Keep it up, make america great again.”

Have you done your part today? If not, take a moment to decide what to do, how you can help, and pitch in! Maybe pitching in for you means telling me I’m dumb, go for it! Whatever it is, make your time count!
