We all are given many, MANY reasons to laugh at Lady Gaga when she manages to make herself look absolutely as stupid as possible with the costumes and such that she thinks are so new age and innovative. BUT, nothing has topped her ridiculous dressing habits until Trump put the trans-ban in place.
Over the last few days we have been seeing a lot of ignorant posts and tweets about how outraged people are that the most depressed and stressed group in the country isn’t being given a uniform and free medical care. It is discrimination, the left screams! No, you ignorant pansies, it is preservation not only for our military and the financial side, but for the very ones claiming discrimination.
You do NOT hand weapons to chronically depressed and suicidal people and just assume that it will go well. So when Gaga outlined the exact reasoning as to why trans SHOULD NOT be allowed in the military, a few came out and slammed her with her own statistics. One re-tweet however stood out in epic fashion.
According to Conservative Tribune :
Lady Gaga thought she was making a great point when she tweeted President Donald Trump about his announcement that he wants to ban transgenders from serving in the military.
She was stopped in her tracks when Iraq War veteran J.R. Salzman fired back at Gaga using her own words against her. Epic!
The president announced Wednesday morning that he was banning those who identify as transgender from serving in any capacity in our armed forces. His tweets became a trending topic and everyone on Twitter seemed to have something to say about the president’s message. Lady Gaga was one of those people, and she thought she would try and 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.

The tweet was re-tweeted thousands of times and had over 41,000 “loves” as a result of so many liberals thinking Gaga was right on target with her statement. It’s true that she was correct with her statistics. According to Williams Institute, 45 percent of 18-24 year old transgender people indeed have attempted suicide.
While her stats were correct, her logic was off base. Her tweet earned her a lot of replies, but the award for most epic response goes to Salzman.
“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.

Gaga no doubt wished she had just kept her mouth shut. What Salzman said is critical for those on each side of the aisle to understand. 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 emotionally ready to handle to stresses of war. And, as Gaga, pointed out, those who identify as transgender are more likely to have a slew of emotional and mental problems.
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.”
It’s a great day when celebrities who pretend they know everything get owned by an average citizen — and there was no one better than Salzman to do it.
Thank you to all the men and women who have ACTUALLY served who are speaking out about how important it is to prevent distraction from creating issues within a military that has been previously beaten down during the Obama Reign. Folks like Gaga need to shut the hell up about things they know nothing about.
The typical SJW tag-lines and whiny tweets have gotten old and repetitive. Get some new material and try really hard to make it real and maybe then we will see your point. Well, probably not, because you literally either have no point or you only succeed in proving OUR points, but you could at least try a little harder.
