‘He thinks we’re those cars that turn into robots’: Transgender comedian scalds Trump on the ‘Tonight Show’
“The Tonight Show” with host Jimmy Fallon examined President Donald Trump’s ban on military service for transgender Americans.
“Now Jimmy, I’m a transgender woman and as a trans person, it’s hard to articulate exactly how I feel, 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,'” “The Tonight Show” correspondent Patti Harrison told the hold.
“When I saw the headline this morning at first I just read, ‘Donald Trump Bans Transgender people.’ And I was like, ‘yeah sounds like him,’” she joked. “But then I realized it was just in the military and I was shocked – because I assumed he already did.”
The confusion wasn’t just over what President Trump had done, but why he was doing it.
“But you know, I don’t even think Trump knows what ‘transgender’ means,” the comedian said. “He probably thinks transgender people are those cars that turn into robots.”
