Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough said Thursday that President Donald Trump’s rambling, stream of consciousness interview with the New York Times sounds like “William Faulkner on acid.“I mean the sentences just keep going on, but they’re garbled and make absolutely no sense,” the host said, referring to the Nobel Prize laureate’s distinctive writing style.“Well, John McCain, obviously a giant in Washington, D.C., but he’s been a giant in American life for a very long time and he served his entire adult life for the American people,” Scarborough said.

- Bill would require transgender-rights training for CA employers
By Marissa Lang - Saturday Jul 1, 2017
Both gender identity and gender expression have been protected classes under California’s antidiscrimination law since 2011, but the state’s new workplace guidelines, which take effect Saturday, flesh out how employers should apply those protections to workers.More than 75 percent of transgender Californians have experienced mistreatment or harassment at work, according to a 2016 national survey by the National Center for Transgender Equality and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.“We had been doing research for some time in our office about the access to jobs and financial security for our transgender brother and sisters, and the data is just eye-opening,” Lara said.According to a 2008 report by the Transgender Law Center, the most recent of its kind, 1 in 4 transgender Californians surveyed reported earning wages below the national poverty line.“You have trans folks of color, folks with disabilities, there can be a lot of barriers to finding employment,” said Clair Farley, the director of economic development at the SF LGBT Center.When folks transition on the job, they tend to leave their workplace — whether voluntarily or not — and that can really increase their risk for continued unemployment.Under the new rules, employers must give transgender and gender-nonconforming employees access to restrooms, showers and locker rooms that correspond with their gender identity.Unless the business can make the case for why it is an absolute necessity, managers may not impose any grooming or dress standards on a person inconsistent with that individual’s gender identity or gender expression.If we find people are too extravagant in their display, we may counsel the employee and say, ‘Look, you might think it looks great to have 16 loops through your nose, but male or female or in between, it’s going to get in the way and be distracting at your job.Lara’s bill would mandate “employers with 50 or more employees to include, as a component of that prescribed (sexual harassment) training … training inclusive of harassment based on gender identity, expression and sexual orientation.”“When we do our training with businesses, we usually start by asking, ‘How many of you have ever met or have a friend who is transgender?’ It’s usually about 80 to 90 percent have not,” said Michaela Mendelsohn, a transgender activist, restaurant owner and founder of TransCanWork.org.
