Lady Gaga is just another liberal celebrity who should’ve kept her mouth shut about things she knows nothing about. She thought she was making a great point when she attacked President Donald Trump about his announcement that he wants to ban transgenders from serving in the military. She soon realized she’d made a fool of herself when Iraq War veteran J.R. Salzman fired back using her own words against her.
The president announced Wednesday morning that he was banning those who identify as transgender from serving in any capacity in our armed forces.
Lady Gaga obviously wanted to prove a point to the president. Instead, she made his point for him. Salzman quickly called her out on her ignorance.
“@Potus Sincerely, did you know of the group you singled out today, 45% of them ages (18 to 24) have attempted suicide already?” Gaga’s tweet read.

To be fair, her statistics were correct. According to Williams Institute, 45 percent of 18-24 year old transgender people indeed have attempted suicide.
However, her logic was off base. Her tweet earned her a lot of replies, but the award for most epic response goes to Salzman, reports Conservative Tribune.
“So your solution is to give them a weapon, and send them off into combat where lives depend on mental and emotional stability under stress?” he said.

Salzman made an excellent point. With such an identity crisis as transgenders go through, there are mental issues there that need to be addressed.
A person under the emotional turmoil of questioning his gender is not capable of handling the extreme stress of war.
As war veteran David French from The National Review wrote,
“The military has to make hard choices on the basis of odds, probabilities, and centuries of hard-earned experience. Our national existence — ultimately, our very civilization — depends on getting those answers right.”
