Getting it wrong

Speaking in Bridgewater, NJ, yesterday, the twit-in-chief displayed his ineptitude and according to one source, further compromised his military authority.

The vacationing resident took time out from his saber-rattling to proclaim that his purge-by-tweet, which has still yet to be put into action, was just him doing military officials a "great favor."

One can only assume that The Donald believes that our force command structure is in complete opposition to transgender service but is so inept it can't navigate a removal on its own.

It’s been a very confusing issue for the military, and I think I’m doing the military a great favor.

I think I’m doing a lot of people a favor by coming out and just saying it.

--Trump

Left entirely unexplained was exactly what "it" was.

This came one day after five transgender service members sued his ass.

Week-old SecNav Richard Spenser, speaking separately yesterday, said he would "carry out any order given" but added what he personally believed.

We will process and take direction on a policy that will be developed by the secretary (DoD Sec. Mattis) (with) direction from the President --- and march out smartly. As I said before, on a fundamental basis, any patriot that wants to serve and meets all the requirements should be able to serve in our military.

--SecNav

Coast Guard Commandant Paul Zukunft pledged to "not break faith" with transgender service members in the Coast Guard while speaking at a Washington think tank earlier this month.

One administration official said the White House was considering urging transgender service members to retire early. But a defense official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said on Thursday that doing so might be difficult to defend in court.

Does our Commander In Chief understand the chain of command?

Defense Secretary James Mattis has delayed allowing transgender people to join the military until Jan. 1, 2018 at the earliest, the Pentagon announced Friday night.

In a statement, chief spokes person Dana W. White said Mr. Mattis was following a recommendation from the military branches.
