    On Wednesday, Trump made the abrupt and shocking announcement that transgender people would no longer be permitted to serve in the U.S. military in any capacity. Donnie's latest tidbit of bigotry was disseminated in what has sadly become his signature style; a frighteningly unprofessional Tweet that is only slightly less surprising to his advisors than to the rest of the American people. Trump cited the "burden" of "tremendous medical costs" for transgender service members as the reason for the ban.

    Pop sensation and vocal LGBTQ ally Lady Gaga had some choice Tweets of her own for the president yesterday. Gaga points out that Trump's sudden announcement endangers the estimated 2,000-11,000 transgender people currently serving in the military on active duty.

    She then continues to spit the facts about mental health within the transgender community.

    Lady Gaga's Tweets call attention away from debates over military spending packages and focus the spotlight on the health and well-being of the transgender community that is now left more vulnerable to isolation in the wake of the president's discriminatory message. At least somebody has their priorities in the right order.
