On Thursday, Barack Obama issued a directive requiring every single school district throughout the country to allow boys with a mental disorder that causes them to think they are girls, or vice versa, to use the bathroom , showers, and locker rooms “consistent with their gender identity.” In other words, an anatomical male with a penis can undress in front of girls in the girls locker room as long as he says he identifies at that moment as a female. Likewise, a female with breasts can soap up and shower with boys as long as she says that’s what she “feels” she is on that day.
Obama is bribing school districts with money sent in by taxpayers, by force, threatening that they will not receive federal funding if they do not comply. This is not only an egregious overstep in power by Obama, it is an affront to all things decent and moral as Obama ramps up the Left’s culture war, pushing perversion and doing the Devil’s work by aiding and abetting the master of confusion.
So, what is the stance of the presumptive GOP nominee, Donald Trump, on Obama’s overreach in forcing girls to shower, change in front of, and go to the bathroom with boys? Trumps’ official stance is…he has no opinion.
How could one, especially someone running for president, have absolutely no opinion on such a societal changing perversion forced upon the innocents by the President of the United States?
Are these Trump’s New York values coming into play or is he simply afraid of offending the Gaystapo out of fear that they will boycott or protest Trump Towers or one of his golf courses? Or could it possibly be that he is afraid of angering the “progressive,” i.e. far-left whack job, supporters of Bernie Sanders who he is trying to court in order to win their vote?
In typical Trump fashion, however, some could say he contradicted himself within the same interview on
Trump and Friends Fox and Friends as he spoke with one of the many Trump cheerleaders on the supposed “fair and balanced” network, Brian Kilmeade.
Although he said officially he had no opinion, he did give another statement that was, shall we say, contradictory, and could be described as an instant flip-flop or at the very least an instance of confusion.
“I think this should be a states’ issue … everybody has to be protected. It’s a tiny, tiny portion of the population.”
Huh? Could he be any less clear regarding where he stands on this issue? Actually, yes he can!
“It’s a new issue, and right now I just don’t have an opinion, but right now I would like to see the states make the decision.”
Trump repeated these sentiments on other shows on Friday morning.
‘I believe it should be states’ rights and I think the states should make the decision. They’re more capable of making the decision. I’ve felt that from the beginning,’ Trump said on Good Morning America.
On Today he said, ‘I see what’s happening and it’s become such a big situation. And you know what? Everybody has to be protected and I feel strongly about that. But you’re talking about a tiny, tiny group of population.’
‘With that being said, everybody has to be protected. but I would leave it up to the states.’
So, he doesn’t have an opinion even though it appears that he expressed at least some kind of opinion on how such decisions should be handled, i.e. by the states.
Maybe Trump’s mixed messaging is because saying it should be handled by the states contradicts statements he has made, even in the recent past.
A mere three weeks ago, Trump not only criticized North Carolina for their ‘bathroom law’ which required individuals to use the restrooms that corresponded with the gender on their birth certificate, he made it a point to say that Bruce Jenner, who is now under the delusion that he is Caitlyn Jenner, could use the women’s restroom in Trump Tower.
Very specifically at the time, Trump was very much against North Carolina’s “states rights” handling of their bathrooms and Mr. Anti-PC displayed the ultimate in political correctness by criticizing the state.
“North Carolina did something that was very strong and they’re paying a big price. And there’s a lot of problems.” Trump said. “Leave it the way it is. North Carolina, what they’re going through, with all of the business and all of the strife — and that’s on both sides — you leave it the way it is. There have been very few complaints the way it is. People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate. There has been so little trouble. And the problem with what happened in North Carolina is the strife and the economic punishment they’re taking.”
This was not the first time that Trump stood against the rights of states, thereby revealing either a lack of understanding of the 10th Amendment, a disdain for it, or a stance of simply not caring about it.
In January 2016, Trump weighed in on the massive government land grab in Western states.
Donald Trump, speaking with Anthony Licata of Field and Stream magazine, was asked about Western land confiscated by the federal government and the controversies surrounding it. Did he think the federal government should transfer this land back to the states? Not only did Trump think this wasn’t a good idea, his rationale was because he didn’t trust the states with their own land.
AL: I’d like to talk about public land. Seventy percent of hunters in the West hunt on public lands managed by the federal government. Right now, there’s a lot of discussion about the federal government transferring those lands to states and the divesting of that land. Is that something you would support as President?
DT: I don’t like the idea because I want to keep the lands great, and you don’t know what the state is going to do. I mean, are they going to sell if they get into a little bit of trouble? And I don’t think it’s something that should be sold. We have to be great stewards of this land. This is magnificent land. And we have to be great stewards of this land. And the hunters do such a great job—I mean, the hunters and the fishermen and all of the different people that use that land. So I’ve been hearing more and more about that. And it’s just like the erosion of the Second Amendment. I mean, every day you hear Hillary Clinton wants to essentially wipe out the Second Amendment. We have to protect the Second Amendment, and we have to protect our lands.
Will Trump stand by his convoluted mixed messaging when it comes to Obama’s forced transgender bathroom directive or will his surrogates go out and try to spin that he ‘was taken out of context?’
Since Trump recently absolved himself from being held accountable for anything he has said in the past or will say in the future by sharing that the things he says are ‘just suggestions,’ why would there be a need to backtrack anything anymore or even attempt to offer any clarification.
In the words of his friend, and the likely Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Trump has no principles upon which he stands. His actions and beliefs throughout the years are argued by him and his surrogates as being irrelevant because he was a private citizen. If you don’t like his stand on a issue, policy, controversy, just wait a few days or a few minutes…it just might change.
And if it doesn’t, don’t worry. He doesn’t necessarily mean what he says. Everything is ‘just a suggestion.’
