WATCH: Stephen Colbert Nukes Trump’s Stupid Transgender Ban

in Humor/Left Wing Nation/Liberal Icons/op-ed by

During his show last night, Stephen Colbert laid into Donald Trump over his newest crazy rant—claiming via a series of tweets that the U.S. military would no longer allow transgender individuals to serve their countries due to the “tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

Colbert points out that it took Trump TEN MINUTES to compose his second tweet, leaving his Twitter audience on the edge of their seats wondering just what exactly the U.S. Government would no longer allow. He goes on to question Trump’s motives, asking,

Why the hell would he do this? This isn’t even one of his campaign promises.

In fact, in a tweet during the presidential campaign, Trump promised the LGBT community, “I will fight for you.”

As Colbert states during his show,  “What the hell does he think the ‘T’ in LGBT stands for? Trump?”

Colbert also offered a bit of advice to Caitlyn Jenner, who is transgender and has long been supportive of Trump and his policies but who sent out a tweet condemning the ban shortly after it was announced. Said Colbert,

Caitlyn, I don’t know if I’m the first person to break this to you, but he’s a liar..I know he said he was your friend, but he was using you girl. You deserve better.

As funny as Colbert’s show is, he gives us some food for thought when he questions the real motives behind Trump’s surprising and controversial tweets yesterday. Trump is a man who is an expert at the art of distraction. He knows how fickle the public can be when it comes to focusing on a “boring” issue such as the Russia investigation and how quickly their attention can be caught up by some other, more sensational story–like the POTUS suddenly tweeting that an entire class of people is banned from serving in the U.S. military.

Russia who?
