Jimmy Fallon Brings on Transgender Comedian to Zap Donald Trump for Military Ban
Trans comic Patti Harrison hilariously served Jimmy Fallon her thoughts on President Trump’s shameful attempt to ban transgender people from the military. Harrison was brutal.
“I’m a transgender woman, and, as a trans person, it’s hard to articulate exactly how I feel,” she said. “But I guess if I had to describe it, I’d say, ‘Donald, you’re so stupid. You are so stupid. You’re lucky you’re so hot.”
She joked that her initial response to the news of the ban was shock. “I assumed he already did that.”
“I don’t even think Trump knows what ‘transgender’ means. He probably thinks transgender people are those cars that turn into robots,” she jabbed.
Harrison struck a more serious note at the end, saying, “There are amazing trans people who should be allowed to serve.”
She cited Kristin Beck, a retired trans United States Navy SEAL who earned a Purple Heart, as an example of the courage trans citizens have shown in the U.S. military.
