Before Patti Harrison made headlines for her Trump-dissing bit on The Tonight Show following the president's ban of transgender people from the military Wednesday (July 26), the transgender comedian had used her humor to address transphobic people (including Trump himself) a handful of times.

Harrison is a frequent star of videos for the comedy site Seriously.TV, for which she often creates content poking fun at the backlash she's received as a transgender woman. This includes a bit called Convers(at)ion Therapy, which features a non-binary guest and sees Harrison jokingly trying to "convert" the person she's talking to at the end of the segment. Whether Harrison is discussing transgender dating life or ways to act more straight, one thing remains the same: She's always sneakily calling out those who aren't so welcoming to transgender people.

In addition to the trans talk, Harrison has also voiced her frustration with Donald Trump's presidency through her comedy, including "an inauguration day workout to prepare you for the Trump administration" and "Christmas songs for Trump's America."

Take a look at Harrison's response to Trump's transgender military ban and some of her other transphobic/Trump-bashing videos below.
