We’re not the biggest fans of Jimmy Fallon (all that smirking!) but the Tonight Show host scored major points last night when he invited trans comedian Patti Harrison on to address Trump’s transgender military ban.
“Now, I don’t necessarily want to serve in the military, but I want the right to serve, you know,” Harrison confessed. “It’s like, I don’t want to go to your baby shower, but I want the invite.”
Addressing Trump’s assertion that transgender service members would be a dangerous distraction in the Armed Forces, Harrison says, “If you constantly draw attention to yourself, spend all day distracting everyone and cost tax payers millions of dollars, the perfect job for you isn’t the military. It’s the president of the United States.”
Other late-night hosts also addresses Trump’s latest fiat, including Stephen Colbert.
“Keep in mind, this is what really stings: They are being rejected by a rich guy who during Vietnam sidestepped the draft with four deferments and a medical disqualification for bone spurs in his foot,” said the Late Show host. “I know. But they were manly bone spurs in powerful dude foot—that just got all ouchy when he put it in a boot.”
