The Democratic party has long pushed back against the GOP’s call for IDs to be required in order to vote, using the excuse that this type of restriction disproportionately affects black people, suggesting that the black population is not intelligent enough to figure out how to get a state-issued ID.
The Left has found another minority group to victimize in this voter ID debate: transgender people.
Just six days out from the midterms, NBC News Now is now arguing that transgender voters will be disproportionately affected by states implementing stricter voter ID laws.
“A growing number of states are enforcing stricter voter identification laws that disproportionately impact the [transgender] community,” said host Savannah Sellers.
Jo Yurcaba, a reporter for ‘NBC Out,’ the NBC News department covering all things LGBTQ+, joined the broadcast to provide some insight into just how voter ID laws are discriminatory to the transgender community.
“Trans people are more likely to have IDs without the name that they go by and the gender marker that reflects how they present,” said Yurcaba.
Reporter Ian Miles Cheong tweeted a clip of this report, saying,
“Having run out of black people to stigmatize as being too stupid to have an ID card they’re now claiming the IDs disproportionately affect transgender people.”

Despite these reporters insisting that these laws are unfair, transgender people are completely capable of changing the gender markers on their federal IDs and records. 22 states even allow residents to select an ‘X’ on their driver’s licenses, signifying a nonbinary identification.
The Left would just like everyone to believe that this is not an available solution, or that transgender people aren’t smart enough to figure out how to get an updated ID.
