North Carolina’s trashbag former governor Pat McCrory said that his support for an anti-trans “bathroom bill” is making it hard for him to get a new job.
On an interview with a World Radio podcast, according to The News & Observer, McCrory complained, “People are reluctant to hire me, because, ‘oh my gosh, he’s a bigot’ — which is the last thing I am.”
What, just because he devoted his life to making it harder for queer people to take part in public life he’s suddenly a bigot??? (Answer: yes.)
McCrory says he’s getting by on consulting positions, but academic leaders don’t really want to hire him because of student protests (yay students).
“That’s not the way our American system should operate – having people purged due to political thought,” he whined to The News & Observer. Apparently, people should only be purged due to gender identity.
McCrory also complained about that time an angry LGBTQ mob chased him down an alley to chant, “Shame!” at him. “I was in fear for my safety,” he said. (Hey, Pat! You know who else fears for their safety? Trans people.)
North Carolina Democratic Party spokesman Mike Gwin clapped back in a statement: “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.”
