Calling His Bluff

When Trump said he consulted with military leaders before coming banning us from the military and now his bluff has been called. He now has to say who he talked to,
Dems ask for proof Trump consulted Pentagon on transgender ban

More than 100 Democrats are demanding proof that President Trump consulted with the Pentagon before deciding that he would ban transgender people from the military.

In a letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis on Tuesday, 115 Democrats request any communication between the Pentagon and the White House that led Trump to claim that he was “doing the military a great favor” by announcing on Twitter that transgender people would not be allowed “to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military.”

“If senior military or Department of Defense personnel asked that the president ban transgender individuals from military service, we request access to any letters, e-mails, telephone transcripts, meeting logs and minutes, or other materials that document such requests,” the Democrats wrote in the letter. “If the department has records of any other discussions that might have justified the president’s claim, we request to see those materials, as well.”
Anyone want to places bets that he will either say it is executive privilege or there will be no one that he talked to.

I have a strong feeling that it was just another one of Trump lies.

From the reports that I have written about it appears that the only one he consulted was  Family Research Council president Tony Perkins.



Last night I went to a Nomoli Brennet concert at the Space Ballroom in Hamden and it was as usual excellent, she was on stage with folk singer Shula Weinstein who played besides the guitar the cello which was a beautiful combination of Brennet’s guitar and Weinstein’s cello.

Here is a video of Weinstein playing…
