CELEBS TWEET IN SUPPORT OF TRANSGENDERS AFTER TRUMP LIFTS BATHROOM PROTECTION LAWS

On Wednesday, the Donald Trump administration reversed Barack Obama’s federal protection laws that allowed transgender students to use whichever bathroom corresponds to their gender identity.  The White House explained Trump’s decision in a statement: "As President Trump has clearly stated, he believes policy regarding transgender bathrooms should be decided at the state level.  The joint decision made today by the Department of Justice and the Department of Education paves the way for an open and inclusive process to take place at the local level with input from parents, students, teachers and administrators."

The reversal sparked protests and angered several civil rights groups, such as the American Civil Liberties Union.  The LGBT project director for the ACLU, James Esseks, said: "Revoking the guidance shows that the president's promise to protect LGBT rights was just empty rhetoric.  But the bottom line is that this does not undo legal protections for trans students, and school districts can and must continue to protect them and all students from discrimination.  School districts that recognize that should continue doing the right thing; for the rest, we'll see them in court."

Obama’s decision to protect transgender rights in the bathroom had previously been celebrated among civil rights groups, including the ACLU.  The group wrote about Obama’s move: “This is a BIG deal – the federal government just made history and set clear standards to protect transgender people!”

Several celebrities took to Twitter to express their outrage at Trump revoking the protections, and show their support of the transgender community.  THE WANNA has gathered the reaction tweets below.

On Thursday, a federal appeals court ruled against reinstating Donald Trump’s immigration ban.  The panel of three California-based judges refused to lift the block from a previous lower court ruling.  Trump’s executive order, signed in January, barred Syrian refugees and immigrants from the Muslim-majority countries of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the U.S.

The federal appeals court ruling did not sit well with Trump, who tweeted in response:

On Friday, Trump announced the White House will come up with new security measures next week and continue trying to lift the court's block on his order.  At a news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Trump said, "We will be doing something very rapidly having to do with additional security for our country.  You will be seeing that sometime next week."

Hollywood celebrities took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the court’s decision and react to Trump’s response tweet.  THE WANNA has compiled a list of celeb tweets below.

BEST CELEB TWEETS FROM THE FINAL CLINTON VS. TRUMP DEBATE

Millions of Americans tuned into CNN last night to watch Clinton and Trump fight dirty during the final Presidential debate, at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas.  The moderator, registered Democrat, Fox News Host, Chris Wallace kicked off the debate with a "take no prisoners" attitude.  Wallace stuck to the script for the most part and kept the candidates in line.  The "nasty" back and forth zingers between Trump and Hill didn't disappoint.

Trump called Clinton, “a nasty woman,” and Clinton called Trump a “puppet.”  Americans will miss watching the entertaining and controversial exchanges between Trump and Hill.  Yes, we can thank Trump for his unconventional approach to politics.  But, all the fun isn't over just yet.  You can bet the debate will continue online.  Donald does love to lash out during his late night tweet sessions.  Trump isn't the only one tweeting politics.  Twitter has been a major resource for the entire nation during this election.   Numerous famous faces have voiced their opinions via Twitter.  The WANNA has been following the celebrity tweets posted each presidential debate.  The final debate generated some serious anti-Trump celebrity tweets.

Aaron Paul attacked Trump’s grammar and tweeted, “Very much smarter. –Trump.”  Others blatantly tweeted their support for Hillary.  Patton Oswalt tweeted, “Hillary trying not to laugh at Pasty McHonky saying 'hombre.'"
