Trump pardons Arpaio, bans transgender military recruits

Posted By on Fri, Aug 25, 2017 at 7:18 PM

More evidence of Donald Trump's love: a pardon for the reprehensible Joe Arpaio.

The rule of law law means nothing in Trump's America. Defy a court order? No big deal.

Even voters in Arizona finally rejected the bullying sheriff. Not Trump. Not his "base." Another dark day with many more ahead.

BTW: Trump also ordered a ban on transgender military recruits and left existing troops twisting in the wind. More love.

ALSO: Sebastian Gorka is leaving White House. But this statement gets to point:

WASHINGTON – Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, released the following statement after Sebastian Gorka departed from the White House:

“Sebastian Gorka’s departure is long overdue and welcome, but he should not have been working in the White House in the first place. No one who supports white supremacy and Neo-Nazi ideas should be serving in this or any administration. Attacking patriotic transgender individuals serving in our military and pardoning Joe Arpaio on the same day as this resignation, however, makes it clear the problem is not Bannon or Gorka but the president himself.”
