Former North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory was evicted from the governor's mansion and, according to him, no one wants to hire him because he's a bigot.
In a podcast interview recently with WORLD, an Asheville-based evangelical Christian news website, McCrory talked about his challenges on the job market.
The former Republican governor says HB2 “has impacted me to this day, even after I left office. People are reluctant to hire me, because, ‘oh my gosh, he’s a bigot’ – which is the last thing I am.”
You know who else has been "impacted?" Gay and transgender residents of North Carolina and the local business community. They're still being impacted "to this day" even after he left office.
McCrory signed a bill that prohibits cities from passing their own anti-discrimination ordinances and criminalizes transgender bathroom use. McCrory even cracked a series of bathroom jokes on the campaign trail in 2016, because discriminating against vulnerable people and costing your state hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity is super funny, amirite?
Whatever the "last thing" McCrory is, a bigot isn't it.
A bigot is the first thing he is.
