    In a message pandering to the hysterical, hateful reactionaries to bad rhetoric, failed former president Trump has outlined his policy proposal for dealing with an imaginary problem, that being gender reassignment for minors.

    Claiming that he would do things he would, if reelected, would not have the constitutional power to do, he vows bigoted vengeance and hateful wrath upon medical professionals based wholly on the collective ignorance of his merry band of followers.

    Former President Trump, in a video released Tuesday on his social media platform, vowed to punish doctors who provide gender-affirming health care to minors if he is reelected next year, wading into a contentious debate that has captured the attention of state and federal lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

    In the nearly four-minute-long, straight-to-camera video, Trump outlined his plan to “protect children from left-wing gender insanity,” unveiling a slate of extreme policy proposals targeting transgender identities, including a federal law that recognizes only two genders and bars transgender women from competing on women’s sports teams.

    “No serious country should be telling its children that they were born with the wrong gender,” Trump said in the video before falsely claiming that being transgender is a concept that the “radical left” manufactured “just a few years ago.”

    “Under my leadership, this madness will end,” he said.

    Trump, who officially announced his 2024 presidential bid in November, added that, if he is reelected, federal agencies will be instructed to immediately cease programs that promote the concept of gender transition “at any age” and promised to prohibit federal tax dollars from being used to help pay for gender-affirming interventions.

    The former president said he also plans to pass a law barring minors from receiving gender-affirming health care “in all 50 states” and intends to direct the Justice Department to investigate the pharmaceutical industry and individual hospitals to determine whether they “deliberately covered up horrific long-term side effects of sex transitions in order to get rich.”

    He knows it will play well with his base and he needs to up the idiotic culture war diatribe if he's going to compete with DeSantis.

    You mean like imagining your biology is in disagreement with your psychology?

    I believe the extreme parsing in your post has left me unable discern what you are asking.

    It’s a psychological condition not really an imaginary one. Imaginary means it doesn’t exist

    Exactly. Not very scientific.

    Trump? He puts ketch-up on steaks, we don't have to assume everything he does is sensible.

    That's never an assumption I've made. But I'm glad you now agree that it is not sensible for him to go against trans folks in this way.

    Interesting conclusion to make. I don't think all of the doctors are trans folk, but perhaps they are....

    The patients in question are. Did you not read the OP? Interesting mistake to make.

    Did you? Seems you think hospitals are trans, and all doctors are as well.

    "Trump vows to punish doctors, hospitals "

    Gender affirming care encompasses far more than just surgery, and it rarely even involves surgery. Fake argument.

    I did. You seem to be confusing Trump holding doctors who operate on child accountable with "Going against Trans people" . You just have to actually read the OP to see whats going on, like I did.

    There's a reason you deceptively altered the title. Try reading the whole thing. And if you did read it, your deception was deliberate. So either you deliberately altered the title or you didn't actually read the whole title. Those are the only options.

    Let's make this easy, what is the punishment for trans people in the OP that you claim I'm using deception to hide? If Trump is attacking trans people here, like you claim, what's the attack?

    You know what, @Oldyoungin , I'll just go ahead and take you at face value. Why would Trump punish all doctors and hospitals? I'm sure you'll answer any day now.

    Removing. Their. ****ing. Care. I, once again, encourage you to actually read the ****ing topic. You won't. But I will try again anyway.

    None of this will happen either way, since Trump won't be president. But advancing on the subject, anyone who comes into power on the right should absolutely (in my opinion) take the same stance and prevent operations (whether surgery, pills, etc...) on children related to gender/trans/gay.

    So they lose their health coverage, doctors, and more? Or can children just not have surgery done related to trans/gender?

    You can't possibly be claiming they would lose their actual health coverage, insurance, and more?

    I'm glad you think you can admit that you value statist conservatism more than individual rights. I disagree. But, hey, at least we can share the hope that Trump won't come to power again.
