When Commander Bunnypants announced his Your Kind Cannot Serve Here “policy” on transgender soldiers without consulting anyone, he brayed that they would not be allowed “to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.”
And of course, he provided no details of how to do that, and especially what to do with the trans people already serving with honor and distinction, so of course Commander Bunnypants has dumped the entire hateful thing on Secretary of Defense James Mattis. You know, because Preznint Stupid is the king of Shit Mountain. He breaks things and leaves everyone else to clean up in his wake, as every toddler does.
As far as I can tell, Mattis has the authority to boot out trans soldiers but is not explicitly ordered to do so, and is expected to somehow stop trans people from enlisting. I don’t want to think about what that could entail.
Now, being a helpful Scissorhead, my advice to Sec. Mattis is pretty simple: do nothing, declare victory, and I bet the shitgibbon will preen for a day that he’s given a crumb to Y’all Qaeda and he’ll forget the whole thing.
