One Day After Two Nasty Anti-LGBT Actions, Trump Presents Medal Of Valor To Married Lesbian Police Special Agent Crystal Griner.  It was Crystal who saved the lives of Republican members of Congress.

NBC Washington reported the following:

President Donald Trump has presented the Medal of Valor to five of the first responders injured in a shooting on a congressional baseball practice last month.

The three Alexandria, Virginia police officers and the two U.S. Capitol police officers received a standing ovation when they entered the East Room at the White House on Thursday.

“These officers saved the lives of every innocent person who was on the field that day,” Trump said before presenting the officers’ medals. He praised the officers who sustained injuries as they “raced through the bullets” to take down the gunman.

Trump Pandering to Religious Right Wings Again!

Trump believes that transgender Americans are too much of a “burden” to serve in the military and that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 doesn’t apply to LGBT citizens.

The word ‘burden’ has been used in history to discriminated and sometimes to eliminated people who are a burden to the state.  Hitler purged people he considered burdens: Jews, disabled persons, gypsies, gays, lesbians and trans-persons and the mentally challenged and the mentally insane.

“Meals on Wheels” to shut in elder persons has been stopped under Trump’s tyranny. They are a burden and ‘don’t make a profit.’

Funds have been shut off to Planned Parenthood even though abortion funding does not come from the government.  Women who need breast screening and family planning care are ‘burdens;’ when money is taken from health care and given as tax breaks to the rich.

Before ending, I would like to congratulate Crystal Griner for her incredible courage in the face of danger.
