Trevor Noah calls Trump’s transgender military ban ‘total B.S.’

On Wednesday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah called out President Trump for his surprise announcement that he would ban trans people from serving in the military.

Trump tweeted the declaration Wednesday morning, saying that the military could not bear the expense of treating trans people. “Just so we’re on the same page, transgender-related medical expenses for the military cost, at most, $8 million a year,” Noah explained. As it turns out, the military spends five times that much on Viagra every year.

“I know some people were surprised by the president’s order this morning, but maybe we shouldn’t be. Because even though Trump always claimed he was for LGBTQ rights, he never seemed fully comfortable in that identity.” Noah then cued up clips of Trump trying to say LGBTQ.

“Yeah, Donald Trump said he would protect LGBTQ citizens,” Noah remarked. “And actually, considering how many wars he’s going to start, maybe he just did.”
