DeGeneres: Trump Transgender Military Limit is ‘Hatred’
TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres slammed the Trump administration on Thursday, claiming that the limit on transgender soldiers serving in the military is about “hatred.”
“Tomorrow, the President’s ban on transgender people serving their country goes into effect. This isn’t about budgets. It’s hatred,” DeGeneres tweeted.
Typical of outraged celebrities, DeGeneres is misinformed at best. There is no ban on transgenders in the military. The administration policy simply specifies that those serving in uniform must be “free of medical conditions or physical defects that may require excessive time lost from duty.”
