Gov. McCrory Thinks Discrimination and Economic Ruin is Very Funny

So do Trump voters, apparently.

Governor Pat McCrory introduced Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in Winston-Salem, North Carolina yesterday where he made what I suppose amounts to a joke about anti-transgender discrimination.

He opened his speech by pointing out nearby exits and bathrooms.

"Alright, let's be safe now. We've got a big crowd," McCrory began. "And if any of you need to use the restrooms..."

He paused for a moment and the crowd began to erupt with laughter.

Ha! Get it? Because he signed this unconstitutional bill that has cost the state hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity and painted a target on the backs of LGBTQ people.

Wasn't it hilarious when the NBA decided to pull the All-Star game out of Charlotte, costing the city and state another hundred million dollars?

Eyeroll

McCrory is a full-on jackass.

    Good grief, these people are eight years old.

  • These people ALWAYS punch down and think it’s funny. Conservative “humor” is all about making fun of those less powerful.

      We may choose to aspire to better things but the American Way™ has always been to punch down. The only difference in over two hundred years is who is on the receiving end of said downward punching: Native Americans, Irish, Chinese, Japanese, Germans, African Americans, Muslims, homosexuals, trans-gendered, and, of course, the perennial favorite: the Jews.

      What should be telling is that, while the Democratic Party (by and large) makes an effort to aspire to their better angles, the Republican Party enthusiastically embraces their worst demons.

      The Blue Shirts may be occasionally slow to catch the tide of history, but they tend to arrive at the right answer well ahead of the Red Shirts. While Team Blue eventually gets on the right side of history and pushes for justice and equality, Team Red repeatedly insists on standing on the train tracks and shouting about their victimization. How anyone can see an equivalence between the two is beyond me.
