On Wednesday’s Full Frontal, Samantha Bee reacted to President Trump’s surprise decision to ban trans people from serving in the military. Trump tweeted the decision Wednesday morning, and the backlash was swift.
After discussing Anthony Scaramucci and Sean Spicer’s resignation, Bee went into attack mode. “Look, I know you don’t know or care how government works. I mean, that has been abundantly clear,” Bee said to Trump. “But we don’t make bullshit, discriminatory laws on Twitter. That’s what Congress is for!”
“Firing thousands of active duty service members in the middle of the big push against ISIS was Trump’s version of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’” Bee remarked. “He didn’t ask anyone and he didn’t tell anyone he was going to do it.”
In his tweet, Trump explained that the military could not afford to treat trans people. He then ended the tweet with, “Thank you.”
“Thank you?” asked Bee. “F—k you.”
