Biden in January, signed an executive order overturning the 2017 Trump administration ban on transgender individuals serving in the military. I, uh this I'll never understand this. I'll never understand Number one. Why do I have to be on the hook for this? Because this is taxpayer? Money, obviously. And why does this have to happen while they're in the military? What about this is important to you, Uh, being able to perform your duties? And the military. Why is the military responsible? Why is the taxpayer responsible? I'll never connect this. I'll never connect the dots on this one. Denis McDonough you, the Veterans Affairs secretary Saturday announced his department begin to pay for the gender confirmation surgery for all veterans.

The vice stacks estimate that there is a total of 134,000 transgender veterans. Really? That is shocking to me. That? Wow Wow. Can see a situation where you're going to have people. It's a lie. It's a lie. It's not sure at all. I'm taking that It's not true at all. That's that's just not true. There's not 134 transgender wondered, and 34 current members of our military that want some sort of form of trends. Are you serious? 268,000? That that seems like Bravo Sierra to me. It does a total totally I I can't well, and I think you're probably gonna have a situation here where you're going to have people wanting to enlist in the military so they can get this surgery paid for paid for, you know, an expensive procedure? Yeah. I'm sure you're saying that some transgenders may sign up for the military just to get this $100,000 procedure. I could see that is a possible scenario. Sure, absolutely especially, you know, let's let's face it a lot of people. Enlist in the military, uh, nothing against the military. But some feel it's their last option in life. They they don't know where else to go. They don't know what else they're doing in Life Island list and this might be you know that kind of thing as well. I don't know, but the military should not be on the hook for this. That should not be the military's problem. It means they will They also pay for a boob job. Right. How far does this Because? Because it is. This is this is a choice, right? You're choosing to go through the transition process. Well, I know that that there's obviously some kind of inner struggle. My point is, this is an elected procedure. It's not life or death. If someone shatters their leg while serving this country, we want to pay every dime to get that person walking again. And all that right question right Without question. Well, the cost of the medical treatment could be as much as $100,000 insider reported in 2019. The fees for the surgery are often not covered by insurance companies, which consider the procedure cosmetic. Many trans people say having a body that matches their gender that they identify as Crucial to their mental health and well being. You're kind of making a case that you shouldn't be allowed in the military. If you've got some mental health issues, and you're kind of making the case that you you really can't serve. Well. This movie is just the first step in what's likely to be a years long federal rulemaking process to expand the Viva health benefits to cover the surgery. You know, I kind of I kind of think the Via needs to Clean up being of a for a while first, right? I mean, that's it's played with its own controversy as it is that you have. Yeah, they have a daughter. You said the VOC will use the time to develop capacity to meet the surgical needs of transgender veterans. I'll never I'll never get this. This is not a life and death issue. Yes, I'm sure if you do have a struggle inside about what? What you know, identifying as the opposite sex. I'm sure that's nuts. I'm sure it is crazy for you. I'm sure it is difficult, but you will not die. So, yeah, I'm with Utah. If if there are these issues if they're these psychological struggles going on You shouldn't be there to begin with, in my opinion, and this is nothing but a major distraction for the military. Focus on what you're there to do keep the country safe for and if you're having this inner struggle, it doesn't sound like the military is the place for you. Right now. The National Center for Transgender Equality estimates there are more than 134,000 transgender veterans and more than 15,000 transgender individuals currently serving the military today..

ABC News Washington correspondent Andy Field joins us in both sides have agreed to the framework of the trial, Andy so Step us through tomorrow's proceedings. What will coma listeners here on day one? It's gonna sound like you heard this movie before, because you did. It was last week that the Senate had a very long debate on whether this was even constitutional. Well, for some reason they going to do that again tomorrow. So the actual Trial in the arguments are not going to happen tomorrow. They're going tol I'll be sworn in and start the debate at 1 P.m. eastern time tomorrow. And when they do that, they're not gonna talk about any of the facts of the case. You actually going to listen to a debate for four hours over whether this is constitutional? Of course they did that already. It's likely to be the same outcome, which is they won't get a majority of the votes to do that. I think 45. Republicans. The last time said it was unconstitutional and then the actual arguments will begin on Wednesday at noon, when the Democratic managers will have 16 hours over two days to make their case. Still not clear if they're going to have witnesses That hasn't been decided yet. Certainly, they invited the president to be a witness in his own trial. He declined. Uh, it's unlikely they'll subpoena him, but they may have other witnesses. Certainly they're going to show a lot of video and interviews with people who all many of them have been arrested, and most of them have said the reason they came up there was that the president told him. Come up there and, as the president said in his speech, fight like hell for this election. Former president's lawyers today, calling this nothing more than political theater. No surprise with that kind of comment. But do they have a point now? Given a dozen appears? You mentioned that there's enough votes Pierre, perhaps even convict Trump. Well, you could say that probably pretty much any any impeachment with going all the way back to Bill Clinton or the last impeachment for President Trump. It doesn't mean that the Democrats and some Republicans voted for this. Don't believe that there is a reason to do this, and they say that he incited insurrection. Which is about as far from keeping your oath of office is as you can possibly go, if indeed that is true. And so they're saying that the reason they're doing this is to I would not give any president in the future and incentive to say Well, I only have a week or so left in office. I could do whatever I want. And it doesn't matter because once I'm out of office, you can't do anything. On the other argument that the president's lawyers saying that it's unconstitutional to impeach him out of office. They didn't impeach him when he was out of office. He was still in office when the impeachment articles came out in the house, and in fact they could have hold held the trial the next day. Were it not for Republicans controlling the Senate who said they weren't going to do that until he was out of office?
