See this reddit thread for Trump supporters.
The indication seems to be that McCain changed his stance on transgender troops in the military just to get back at Trump.
Is this true?
The first story on the left in that picture is here, but here McCain seems to have no actual problems with transgender people in the military, rather his issue is with the lack of communication from the Obama administration, and his desire to have time to properly think over the matter:
Sen. John McCain railed at the Obama administration for its "contempt" of Congress in keeping lawmakers in the dark about its decision to lift a ban on letting transgender troops serve in the military.
"I will be calling up the chiefs of the services, those men and women in uniform who are the heads of the military, and ask them their views, including the cost of implementing, I’m talking about the fiscal costs, of implementing some of these changes, and we’ll be having hearings," he vowed.
So, my question is, is there any other instance where McCain has openly stated his disaproval of transgender people in the military, since I don't believe this particular statement above classifies as such?
