Lady Gaga Reacts To Trump's Trans Military Ban On Twitter & Fans Are With Her
Trump banned transgender Americans from serving in the military on Wednesday, July 26. After the announcement, celebrities have been reacting to the trans military ban news and expressing their support for transgender people, and Lady Gaga joined in. In a series of impactful tweets, Lady Gaga calls out Trump's trans military ban, citing the mental health struggles trans Americans go through and how this ban will hurt them.
The tweets put Trump on blast asking him if he knows that a large percentage of trans people ages 18 to 24 have attempted suicide at some point in their lives. She also notes that a large number of trans students/young adults rarely discuss their mental health issues with anyone, and this ban will do nothing to help them on that front, since Trump called them a "burden" to the military. They are not a burden.
The tweets read,
YAS, GAGA! FIX US WITH YOUR LOVE! Or at least run for senate or something. God knows we need more people like you in there. Fans were here for it when Lady Gaga called Trump out on Twitter.
Gaga is one of the many celebrities to call Trump out on this discriminatory ban. In fact, just about everyone had something to say about it, including late-night hosts, of course. James Corden created a song called "L-G-B-T" (it's a spinoff of the song "L-O-V-E") and performed it on The Late Late Show last night.
In the video, Corden sings,
Political satire will fix us with its love, as will Lady Gaga.
