Lady Gaga thought she was making a great point when she tweeted President Donald Trump about his announcement that he wants to ban transgenders from serving in the military. She was stopped in her tracks when Iraq War veteran J.R. Salzman fired back at Gaga using her own words against her. Epic!
The president announced Wednesday morning that he was banning those who identify as transgender from serving in any capacity in our armed forces. His tweets became a trending topic and everyone on Twitter seemed to have something to say about the president’s message.
Lady Gaga was one of those people, and she thought she would try and prove a point to the president. Instead, she made his point for him. Salzman quickly called her out on her ignorance.
“@Potus Sincerely, did you know of the group you singled out today, 45% of them ages (18 to 24) have attempted suicide already?” Gaga’s tweet read.
The tweet was retweeted thousands of times and had over 41,000 “loves” as a result of so many liberals thinking Gaga was right on target with her statement. It’s true that she was correct with her statistics. According to Williams Institute, 45 percent of 18-24 year old transgender people indeed have attempted suicide.
