Some people should stick to their day job...and by some people I mean actors, actresses, and celebrities in general. They make their millions from our pockets. We pay to see their shows, movies, and to hear their music. Figuratively speaking, they work for us.
Ellen Degeneres is good at making people feel good and laugh. She is not, however, good at politics.
The television hostess went into a rant about the transgender ban in the military, claiming that it isn't fair. She claims that it is just another branch of President Trump's "hatred."
Ellen tweeted, “Tomorrow, the President’s ban on transgender people serving their country goes into effect. This isn’t about budgets. It’s hatred."

What Ellen did not mention is that it's not an outright ban of transgender people in the military, but rather stricter regulations. Which makes sense considering that transgender people are quite clearly confused. They are literally diagnosed with gender dysphoria, which is a type of mental illness.
How can one be expected to train, fight, and even possibly die for our country if they don't even know what genitals they have?
In January, Breitbart reported:
On July 26, 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. military would generally continue its policy of not allowing transgender individuals to serve. DOD subsequently formulated a policy allowing some transgender individuals to serve, but that transgender individuals who would be unable to deploy on miss. This policy was implemented in October 2017.
Pursuant to subsequent orders from the commander-in-chief, then-Defense Secretary James Mattis recommended that transgender individuals cannot serve if their gender dysphoria requires in expensive gender reassignment surgery or other therapies that render them unable to serve for significant lengths of time. The specific military need is that those serving in uniform must be “free of medical conditions or physical defects that may require excessive time lost from duty.”
Leave it to the liberals to cry wolf and turn this molehill into a mountain.
Hollywood activists are in full social justice warrior mode. For example, comedian and actress Sarah Silverman tweeted that trans military members are more heroic that other troops because they have to deal with more.
1) Are you fucking kidding me?! 2) what other horrible thing is this news a decoy for at the expense of our heroes -
our trans military are heroes like the rest -- more so —because they have to deal with this shit from people whose lives & way of life they are protecting. https://t.co/RxlJV3LvCM

Sorry, but having a mental illness does not qualify one to be considered more brave than other military members.
The hashtag "#ProtectTransTroops" is now trending on Twitter and you can only imagine the unnecessary outrage coming from that:
To all transgender military members: You are not alone in this fight. I see you, I hear you, and I stand with you. #ProtectTransTroops

As Donald Trump and Mike Pence implement the #TransMilitaryBan, @HRC is committed to fighting the dangerous and discriminatory policy until it is defeated once and for all. We must #ProtectTransTroops. https://t.co/f76JBDzvzQ

Trans people across the nation: We see you. The #TransMilitaryBan is a step in the President’s attempt to discriminate against our LGBTQ+ community. Through my role on @HASCDems I’ll keep fighting for equality for our transgender troops. #ProtectTransTroops pic.twitter.com/nlwoR1vHYp

Trump’s ban on patriotic, qualified Americans who want to serve our country is wrong. I stand with transgender servicemembers who strengthen our military and fight to protect our democracy & freedoms. #FightTheBan #ProtectTransTroops #TransMilitaryBan pic.twitter.com/oGXo3X7Zup
