Jeffrey Lord Tells U.S. Military: ‘Pay For Your Own Viagra’

Sometimes, the cable news anchors make our job here at Mediaite so easy.

Wednesday night, Anderson Cooper made our job easy.

During a panel discussion about President Donald Trump‘s Twitter announcement of a transgender military ban, the AC:360 host put the headline of this post on a tee for us.

Panelist Jeffrey Lord said that, as part of the debate over the ban which has been going on throughout the day, he learned that the U.S. military pays for Viagra for those who serve. That’s an expenditure to which Lord is vehemently opposed.

“They have no business doing that,” Lord said.

Cooper was incredulous.

“You’re suggesting President Trump should ban Viagra in the U.S. Military?” Cooper said. “Does he have the backbone to ban Viagra in the U.S. Military?”

“I hope he does,” Lord replied. “I would be with him.”

Which set up our headline.

“So the headline is: Jeffrey lord tells U.S. Military, pay for your own Viagra?” Cooper asked.

“Yes,” Lord said.

Done. Perfect. Thanks for making it easy for us, Anderson.
