After President Joe Biden issued an executive order allowing openly transgender service members to once again serve in the military, Republican Senator John Cornyn of Texas posted a tweet that was poorly received by almost everyone online.

Regarding Biden's executive order, the White House issued a statement saying:

"President Biden believes that gender identity should not be a bar to military service, and that America's strength is found in its diversity."

Cornyn's tweet, however, seemed to mockingly imply that allowing transgender soldiers to serve wasn't "unifying."

Twitter immediately began dunking on Cornyn's tweet.

Many wondered how letting one group of people rejoin another group of people could possibly be seen as divisive.


Many Twitter users also cited polls showing a healthy majority of Americans support transgender people serving in the military.


Apparently Cornyn's idea of "unity" is centered around excluding certain groups.



Cornyn has a long history of mockable tweets.



This also isn't the first time a tweet from Cornyn has been "ratioed," which is when a tweet is so unpopular it gets fewer favorites and retweets than replies making fun of it.


But, in a strange way, perhaps Cornyn's tweets have brought a certain unity to Twitter.


This is not the first time and it will likely not be the last Republicans like Cornyn attempt to portray actions by the Biden administration as harmful to "unity," even when, as in this case, they're largely supported by the American public.
