After President Donald Trump’s egregious move to reverse policy and ban transgender individuals from serving in the military in any capacity, he’s catching a lot of flack (deservedly). He’s also receiving hate from his beloved hometown newspaper too.

The New York Daily News‘ Thursday cover revealed the absolute hypocrisy, deplorable, atrocious level of Trump’s decision as it depicted a photo that was taken of Trump during a campaign rally in October of 2016 holding an LGBTQ flag that someone wrote “LGBTs for TRUMP” on.

Furthermore, the cover labeled Trump as the “COMMANDER IN HATE” and called it a “Cruel betrayal built on lies.”

Indeed, it is a cruel betrayal built on lies considering Trump promised the LGBTQ community he would do more for them back in June of 2016 in a tweet.

‘Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.’

Let that sink in.

His attempt at policy change via Twitter incited outcry even from Republicans. The New York Daily News reported Sen. John McCain criticized the decision:

‘Any American who meets current medical and readiness standards should be allowed to continue serving. There is no reason to force service members who are able to fight, train and deplo to leave the military – regardless of their gender identity.’

Furthermore, they wrote in response to Trump’s accusation that transgender individuals cause disruption within the military:

‘In an era in which we already allow gays and lesbians to serve, and in which they do so with distinction, that is greatly overstated.’

Twitter users responded to the cover overwhelmingly.

‘This is a desperate attempt by Trump to pander to his hateful base as support for him slides with every poll.’

‘Oh that’s a surprise, trump lying. What do you think of him now, log cabin Republicans?’

‘Trump is simply selling people out to appeal to his Republican Vicious Evangelical Christian base’

‘@realdonaldtrump Are you proud of urself illegitimate BLOTUS?’

‘I hope he needs a blood transfusion and the only person who matches is someone who he has just f*cked over since he has been in office. POS’

‘@realDonaldTrump is nothing but worthless accumulation of putrid hog sh*t.’

‘Trump Bannon and Miller are pushing the authoritarian narrative hard. Fascist Bastards!’

‘A disgrace indeed! International embarrassment is what the entire GOP is. Just plain embarrassing.’

‘1 repelledObamaCare 2 pulled out of the Paris Climate agreement 3 Cut ties with Cuba 4 Ban trans troops. Is he making America great again?’
