Donald Trump got a collective “fuck you” from the late night community on Wednesday night after his decision to recklessly announce (via Twitter, no less) that transgender soldiers would be banned from the military.
Remember, these are brave individuals volunteering to risk their lives to protect our freedoms — something Trump deferred FIVE times in his youth.
First up, NBC‘s The Tonight Show brought in transgender comedian Patti Harrison to offer her two cents. She said:
“Trump says transgender people in the military would be a tremendous disruption. And I get it. If you constantly draw attention to yourself, spend all day distracting everyone and cost taxpayers millions of dollars, the perfect job for you isn’t the military, it’s the president of the United States.”

Meyers brought in four of his female writers to comment on the situation. They brought up important arguments like, “Where the fuck is Ivanka Trump now?” and, “Why does the military need SO much Viagra??” (below):
Last but not least, The Daily Show reminded us that Trump’s trips to Mar-A-Lago are way more expensive than taking care of our transgender soldiers (below):
Keep fighting, bbs.
