Former North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R-Bigot) is having a hard time getting a job. McCrory, who left his position after being defeated by his Democratic opponent, Attorney General Roy Cooper, attributes his difficulty in finding employment to his controversial”bathroom law.” He does work as a consultant, but getting work, he says, isn’t easy due to the backlash.
The News & Observer reports:
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.”
It’s not the ‘last thing’ McCrory is; it’s one of the many things he is.
McCrory went on to blame liberal groups who oppose HB2 and said they have harmed his reputation. “If you disagree with the politically correct thought police on this new definition of gender, you’re a bigot, you’re the worst of evil,” he said. “It’s almost as if I broke a law.”
McCrory pointed to a recent incident in Washington, D.C., in which he was chased down an alley by protesters who were chanting “shame.”
“I’m sitting there without security and thinking, ‘is this really happening?’” he said. “I was in fear for my safety.”
The poor snowflake needs a safe place:(
HB2, also dubbed the ‘bathroom law,’ prevents transgender people from using government-run bathrooms corresponding to the gender with which they identify.
McCrory did not say whether he was being considered for a post in the Trump administration but we think he’d be a perfect fit. Just look at who Trump chose for his vice-president.
The North Carolina Democratic Party issued a statement in response to McCrory’s interview.
“North Carolina has already lost hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity and thousands of jobs as a direct result of House Bill 2, but I guess we can start adding Gov. McCrory’s career to the total as well,” a spokesman said in a statement.
After being defeated by Cooper, Republican lawmakers, on McCrory’s command, got together in a closed-door meeting to focus on legislation to limit the incoming Governor’s power. It was a power grab. So, yeah, he’s a bigot but he’s other things, too.
