The Trailer: Why Republicans keep running against trans rights

In this edition: The GOP’s transgender politics, lessons from CPAC and a sit-down with a Republican running for Congress against Trump. We don’t have the Kraken anymore, but we’ll always have Paris. This is The Trailer. For most of his 90-minute CPAC speech, former president Donald Trump played the hits. Democrats favor “open borders.” President Biden doesn’t “know what he was talking about.” The 2020 election was stolen, in ways that neither his own Justice Department or judges he’d put on the bench were able to see. But halfway through the speech, Trump said something new. “Joe Biden and the Democrats are even pushing policies that would destroy women’s sports,” he warned. “Young girls and women are in sets that they are now being forced to compete against those who are biological males.” The former president did not say “transgender,” a word he uttered just once during his four years in office. His audience got the message. In Congress and the states, conservatives are talking more and more about transgender rights — specifically, the treatment of children and student athletes whose gender identity differs from the sex they were assigned at birth.
