Kristin Beck — As a SEAL and later as trans. Now she wants to kick Trump’s ass, NY Daily News reports. That’s not very ladylike is it now?
A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service.
“Let’s meet face to face and you tell me I’m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider.
Democrat Rep Sean Maloney (D-NY) appeared on Fox News Wednesday evening to argue with Tucker Carlson over President Trump’s decision to ban transgenders from serving in the military.
Maloney argued that banning transgender people from serving in the military somehow keeps us ‘less safe’. The liberal lunatic also compared transgenders to African-Americans who were once banned from serving and women who become pregnant while in the military.
Tucker Carlson smacked down Maloney’s baseless arguments. Maloney kept referring to Kristin Beck who is a former Navy SEAL as a trans who proudly served–except Kristin Beck didn’t transition to a woman until after he served.
Tucker Carlson tried to have an adult debate with Maloney, but as usual, it’s nearly impossible to debate a liberal when all they argue is ‘you’re a bigot’, ‘you’re prejudiced’ for disagreeing with me.
The Daily Caller did a fact check on the claim that there are over 15,000 transgender service members:
A study in 2016 from the RAND Corporation, sponsored by the secretary of defense, estimates that “the number of transgender individuals currently serving in the active component of the U.S. military at between 1,320 and 6,630 out of a total of about 1.3 million service members.” This number accounts for 0.1-0.5 percent of those serving in active military according to the RAND Corporation.
The Williams Institute study estimated that there are 8,800 trans people serving in active military roles whereas the RAND Corporation study estimates between 1,320 – 6,630. The estimates for those serving in the reserves are also quite different, with the Williams Institute suggesting that 6,700 serve and the RAND Corporation estimating only 1,510.
Due to the discrepancy in these numbers along with the lack of empirical data, The Daily Caller News Foundation rates claims like those touted by Takano as unsubstantiated.
Watch Tucker rip this liberal apart:
