New York-based comedian and transgender woman Patti Harrison appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon yesterday evening to comment on Trump's controversial trans military ban.
Some highlights from her monologue segment:
"Donald, you're so stupid. You are so stupid. You're lucky you're so hot," Harrison joked in her segment.
"When I saw the headline this morning, at first I just read, 'Donald Trump bans transgender people,' and I was like, 'Yeah, that sounds like him,'" she continued. "But then I realized it was just in the military and I was shocked, because I assumed he already did that."
"Now, I don't necessarily want to serve in the military, but I want the right to serve. It's like, I don't want to go to your baby shower, but I want the invite. But you know, I don't even think Trump knows what transgender means. He probably thinks transgender people are those cars that turn into robots."
