Trump Administration Removes Protection on Transgender Bathroom Use in Public Schools - Celebs React

The Trump administration has removed the guidelines that allowed transgender students to use the bathroom in school that matches their gender identity.

These guidelines were put into place during the Obama administration, but under the new administration, they are now putting states in control of their own bathroom policies in schools.

“As President Trump has clearly stated, he believes policy regarding transgender bathrooms should be decided at the state level,” the White House said in a statement, adding that it “paves the way for an open and inclusive process to take place at the local level with input from parents, students, teachers and administrators.”

Celebs like Ellen Degeneres, Jackie Evancho, and Christina Applegate have taken Twitter to voice their opinions on the news.

Elizabeth Warren Silenced by Senate for Quoting Coretta Scott King, Celebs React

Sen. Elizabeth Warren was silenced by Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell while trying to voice her opposition to the nomination of Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general.

The Massachusetts senator was speaking in front of the senate on Tuesday night (February 7) when she decided to read a letter written by Martin Luther King Jr.‘s widow Coretta Scott King, in which she voiced her opposition to Sessions back in 1986.

“I write to express my sincere opposition to the confirmation of Jefferson B. Sessions as a federal district court judge for the Southern District of Alabama,” the letter read. “Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts.”

When McConnell objected to Warren‘s speech, he cited the second line as something that was over the line.

“I am surprised that the words of Coretta Scott King are not suitable for debate in the United States Senate,” Warren said.

She later took to Twitter and said, “Tonight on the Senate floor, I tried to speak about why [Sessions] is totally unfit to serve as Attorney General. On the floor, I read a letter that Coretta Scott King wrote in 1986 opposing [Sessions]‘s judicial nomination. I spoke out about [Sessions] – until McConnell decided to silence me. I will not be silent about a nominee for AG who has made derogatory & racist comments that have no place in our justice system. I will not be silent while the Republicans rubber stamp an AG who will never stand up to the @POTUS when he breaks the law. Tonight [McConnell] silenced Mrs King’s voice on the Sen floor – & millions who are afraid & appalled by what’s happening in our country.”

Appeals Court Denies Restoration of Donald Trump's Travel Ban

The United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has rejected a request by the Justice Department to restore Donald Trump‘s travel ban.

This means that people from the seven predominantly-Muslim countries of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen – and vetted refugees – can continue to enter the U.S., according to the New York Times.

Trump originally signed the controversial executive order on January 27 as nationwide protests broke out at airports.

A federal judge paused the ban this past weekend before the Justice Department appealed the following day.

“Courts are particularly ill-equipped to second-guess the President’s prospective judgment about future risks,” the department said.

“These are the words I live by,” Clinton said in a statement. “These quotes have helped me celebrate the good times, laugh at the absurd times, persevere during the hard times and deepen my appreciation of all life has to offer.”

She added, “I hope by sharing these words and my thoughts about them, the essays will be meaningful for readers.”
