Obama’s transgender-bathroom push sparks uproar, praise.
Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas and presidential candidate, took to Twitter Friday morning to express outrage at President Obama’s all-court press for transgender rights – specifically, to allow males to use females’ restrooms – and saying the directive issued by his Justice Department demanding schools turn a blind eye to biology and sex is a revealing insight into the president’s personality.
“It tells you a lot about a man and his priorities when he spends more time pushing transgender bathrooms …” Huckabee wrote, in one tweet.
And that was seconds later, followed by another: “… than he does on improving high school graduation rates or decreasing Black on Black violence.”
He’s hardly the one voice to express outrage at Obama’s pressed rights for transgenders, as personified most recently in the Department of Justice’s issuance of guidance to schools telling them to open bathrooms to those of both sexes, as WND reported.
Sen. John Cornyn from Texas said “what the president needs to do is focus on his job and his job is not to intervene in state and local affairs under our constitutional scheme” and clarified “this ought to be a choice made by local officials at the local level held accountable by their own voters.”
