question

regardless of your personal stance on the issue of bathroom facilities for transgendered persons, isn't obama's recent directive to public schools something that is going to make the democratic party offensive to some who would otherwise support them in the november elections? and maybe even inspire large numbers of people who otherwise might not have voted to get out and vote -- republican? and while not disputing that the history of civil rights involves lots of bold actions that are politically unpopular, is this the best time to do something of that nature? when republicans already have the majority in the legislative branch and there's a madman at the front of the republican presidential ticket? if the policy is only going to be reversed by a new administration and the political fallout is going to result in more people in power who aren't in favor of transgender rights, isn't this an overall negative move, possibly to a very large extent?

This is certainly a good question. I am sure that went into Obama's calculus.

I'm far more concerned about the leftist attacks on Clinton. The far left seems to be all like "Never Clinton" and incredulous that this damages the momentum against Trump.
