NORTH CAROLINA: Trump Rally Crowd Cheers As Gov. Pat McCrory Mocks Transgender Rights [VIDEO]

The Washington Post reports:

As North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) was introduced, an announcer for the campaign praised him for boosting the state’s economy, even though later in the night, Trump would say that he has three pages of statistics showing that the state is not doing well economically and would benefit from his proposed trade policies and job-creation promises. McCrory took the stage and immediately started acting like a flight attendant.

“All right, let’s be safe now. We’ve got a big crowd, so if you need to leave suddenly, we’ve got exits this way, exits this way and exits this way,” McCrory said, motioning straight ahead, to his right and to his left. “And if any of you need to use the restrooms …”

McCrory paused as the crowd of several thousand laughed and cheered his reference to legislation passed earlier this year that requires individuals to use the restroom that matches the gender they were born with, not the one they identify with. McCrory waited for the applause to die down, then continued. “And if you have any questions, go to the Philadelphia convention where all of the Democrats are,” McCrory said as the crowd again cheered.

    That’s weapons-grade derp, right there…yessiree – weapons-grade.

  • Buford

    What a classless piece of garbage.

    • Frostbite

      You’re a much kinder person than I am.

      • Buford

        ‘Assless classhole’…?

        • Frostbite

          First thing that comes to mind when I see his photo is “fucking douchebag.”

    • b

      What is classier than wanting big gov checking genitals in restrooms.

      • Buford

        I dunno… making fun of trans people while your own anti-tran laws are ruining the reputation of the state you lead and the livelihoods of the people who live there…?

  • Mike C

    Wasn’t a court date just set for his bathroom law? Thanks for the evidence.

    • Gustav2

      Nice animus and illustrates the strictly political reasons for the discrimination.

  • JustDucky
  • NancyP

    Potty jokes – he should have outgrown those about 50 to 60 years ago…and same for his audience

    • Gustav2

      Welcome to the Trumplican Party.

  • Do Something Nice

    These pathetic people don’t matter. We are winning.

    • Michael Abbett

      The only thing they are accomplishing is playing to the lowest common denominator in their states just to remain in office as long as they can. That, and keeping their least educated and most vulnerable citizens from the fullness of life they might enjoy if they were taught to aspire to a more inclusive world view.

    • Todd20036

      I certainly hope so. We will know more after the DNC

    • billbear1961

      Only if, at the very least, we hold on to the White House.

  • bkmn

    I wish McCrory could be sued personally for what he signed off on. Make him feel some real pain.

  • Butch

    Do you expect anything better from him? A former Duke Energy employee who has trashed the state’s environment along with its economy?

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    If you have to go to the restroom, please display your genitals to a government employee to make sure you are complying with our laws.

    Yes, this is how smaller government is done!

    • crewman

      I’m pretty certain I don’t want to see most of those genitals.

      • Todd20036

        I’m pretty certain you’d have to get up close and personal with a magnifying glass to see them, anyway

        • Guest

          Size Queen.

          Sit next to me.

          • Todd20036

            I’m not a size queen, but I seem to attract them…

          • Rex

            In that case, sit next to ME!

          • Joe in PA

            pics please big talker. πŸ™‚

          • Keiffer

            I hate size queens but I love their boyfriends.

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        If we accept this stupid premise that genitalia determines gender, then I suppose McCrory would like a (male) military veteran with catastrophic damage in that area to use the women’s restroom?

        Once someone has passed government genital inspection, will they be issued an ID to avoid future inspections? Perhaps something they can wear on their clothes? A tattoo?

        • bambinoitaliano

          Gives new meaning to the whole photo id thing.

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            So I can just show my grinder dick pic and bypass the lines for inspection?

          • bambinoitaliano

            Pass it on to me. I have to make sure its properly frame πŸ™‚

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            I hope you’ll want the image life size?

          • bambinoitaliano

            With the latest Virtual Reality imaging, it will help you get to the urinal station faster sir.

          Well look at that one school district that’s making Trans students wear a green armband….

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            The modern day pink triangle. And the fact that supporters of this are too stupid to have knowledge of history of basic human rights is the most disturbing part.

          • D. J.

            How progressive, armbands instead of symbols sewn onto clothing…../s

      • james_from_cambridge

        We do know what Ted Cruz’s penis looks like, if you care to look…

        Bigger than you thought, huh?

        • Exatron

          Well, it couldn’t be smaller than we thought.

        • Stephen Elliot Phillips

          I liked that movie but the subplot regarding the aliens was hard to follow. They seemed to be galactic johnnys apple seed.

          • Steve McCaig

            This is awful, I don’t know what movie this is and I think I’d like to see it. At least I think so since I currently have two glasses of a fine red wine in me at the moment we’ll just go with that.

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            its “prometheus” ridley scott’s prequel to “alien”

    • D. J.

      Well, well, well…They left the comments open on that video.
      I tossed in one about raising the minimum wage.
      I noticed that some of you had been there, too! πŸ™‚

    • JustTheFactsMa’am

      From the sounds of some of the articles about the huge bump in male escort business in Cleveland last week – sounds like they were displaying their genitals to *someone*.

  • Tigernan Quinn

    Adorable. We’ll see whose laughing come court time. And election time, both Presidential and YOURS, buddy.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Praised him for boosting the economy? How much have they / will they spend defending their unconstitutional laws? How much is losing the NBA playoffs costing the state? How many business are declining expansion plans.

    Does the announcer understand that saying something out loud does not necessarily make it true?

    • Gustav2

      Notice how Obama is to blame for the Bush Recession and Republican governors take all the credit for any recovery.

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        Obama was responsible for $4.00 gas prices, but now that they are so low, he receives no credit.

    • Joe in PA

      Hey, they stashed away $500K (stolen from the emergency preparedness fund) for this! So, no prob. /s

      • D. J.

        Next coal ash retention pond that breaks loose, guess who’ll be begging the Feds to fix it.

        • TrollopeReader

          Pat “Call me Duke” McCrory – Energy ??

          • Skokieguy [Larry]

            I think what you’re saying…

    • billbear1961

      In case you’ve not noticed, Larry, they are relentless LIARS.

      • Rex

        It really is difficult not to notice.

        • billbear1961

          No thanks to the MEDIA, who PRETEND to believe that “impartiality” or “fairness” means you must LET baldfaced LIARS lie to your face and not CHALLENGE them for it!!

          All economic indicators are positive, but the nation isn’t happy–the President hasn’t cleaned up W.’s mess FAST enough!!

          And it’s HIS fault, not the fault of the Republicans who’ve tried to SABOTAGE everything he’s done!!

          So, let’s hand it ALL over to THEM–first the House, then the Senate, finally the White House–so that Trump can reintroduce all the WILD deregulation W. was responsible for (Trump has SAID he would, but it almost NEVER gets reported by the goddamned USELESS media) and take this nation, once again, PLUNGING over a CLIFF!!

          I despair of this country–their STUPIDITY is beyond EXASPERATING!!

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        Bill, I’m confused. Trump says “believe me” all the time. Isn’t that like a Hogwarts incantation that makes everything true?

        • Rex

          It’s more like his statements are really unbelievable. He’s had a lot of practice saying that, along with “trust me.”

          • olandp

            Whenever someone says “believe me” or “trust me” I know not to. Like when someone says they are a “good Christian” I always check my wallet.

          • hyghwayman

            ROFLMAO

          • RoFaWh

            And guess what? Now nobody in their right mind (e.g. big banks) will give Trump the time of day. Except Putin’s hand ppuppets.

        • billbear1961

          He’s a swindler asking for a BLANK CHECK.

          • D. J.

            If you don’t believe Drumpf, He will be opening a school on government everybody can attend for easy payments, financed thru the payday loan folks.

    • Rex

      The phrase “Don’t piss on me and tell me it’s raining” seems appropriate here.

    • Sapient Mulch

      “Does the announcer understand that saying something out loud does not necessarily make it true?”

      I don’t know if anyone involved in politics at any level understands this.

  • Sam_Handwich

    The Marist poll from 2 weeks ago gives Copper a 4 point lead … though aggregated polling is essentially tied. Interesting that there’s no link to this speech on McCrory’s twitter feed.

    I think it would be wise for Copper to tie McCrory to Trump while also driving home the enormous economic impact of HB2.

  • Rex

    Hey Pat, meet me in the men’s room.
    I’ve got a swirly with your name on it.

  • ohbear1957

    Sycophant McCrory ought to get a nose tattoo that reads: Property of Donald Trump’s Asshole.

  • j.martindale
  • Todd20036

    So, any of you Berned bros still want to vote against the one person who could prevent this fascist candidate from reaching the White House?

  • Jeffrey

    Because it’s hilarious when you financially devastate your economy by trampling on other people’s rights.

    • Chris Baker

      and the transgender bathroom issue was only an issue in Charlotte, where they passed the original law that spurred on the statewide law. So he was trying to punish Charlotte, and the whole state suffer.

  • billbear1961

    Truly VILE piece of SHIT!!

    Fucking Brownshirt GOON!

  • Martin

    Is Pat really a man? His marriage has produced no progeny. There is no real proof to be found.

    • Sam_Handwich

      good point, with a name like “Pat” we can’t be sure. where’s the birth certificate??

      • MarkOH

        Birth certificate? Check his genitals.

        • OdieDenCO

          eww, not even with the apricot hell beast’s tiny hands

    • Hue-Man

      Strong family resemblance.

  • Gov. Potty McCrory (R-Shit Shack, NC) speaks.

    Eat some more corn, Potty. You’re gonna need the cobs.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Don’t his type use cobs to wipe their butts?

  • Frostbite

    Of course he directed people with questions to Philadelphia, the GOP has no answers!

  • dcurlee

    That’s all the GOP have is name calling

  • OdieDenCO

    β€œAnd if you have any questions, go to the Philadelphia convention where all of the Democrats are,” McCrory said

    Because all the republicans have is myth and misinformation.

    • djcoastermark

      Fine I will go to the Philly convention. It IS where I can get some real answers not just wretched spewing.

  • bambinoitaliano

    He is channeling Mike Pense and hope that one day to be pick as VP by another blowhard jackass.

  • Baby Dave

    There’s a reason why these people lost the Civil War.

  • Jerry Hinnant

    Well I see their message of gloom and doom and mocking others is still alive and well even after their convention. What a pathetic bunch!

  • John Ruff

    It’s like a Nazi rally

  • Duane Dimitrov

    What is this McCrory’s background?

    Is he vat-grown by the Kochs as a middle manager like Scott Walker, or is he a religionist?

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      Hes an ex duke energy executive. So hes pro-business but doesnt mind kissing christian imam ass

      • Duane Dimitrov

        Oh, that makes sense.

        Serve the 1% but say whatever you have to say to remain in power.

        And, naturally, in NC the quickest way to do that is to appeal to the religionists.

      • SoCalGal20

        So does Duke Energy own the entire NC state government?

  • Kissmagrits

    Mock this constituency while you still can, you small minded son of a bitch.
    Your next election may not be a happy one.

    What a douche.

    Yup. They get Chachi and the underwear model.

    We get A-Listers from start to finish.

    Yup. We’re so broken up cuz we wanna be you.

    Sad watching straight white men navigate this new world that doesn’t think they’re much.

    And a bit funny, too.

    They are all such liars. I just got a letter from McCrory’s campaign saying, “Thank Gov McCrory for cutting your taxes.”

    I had always gotten a state tax refund. Ever since McCrory “cut” my taxes, I’ve had to pay over $1000.

    • William

    So funny that he used flight attendant gestures because restrooms on airplanes gender neutral.

  • Matt in PDX

    “And if you need to use the restrooms…” … Then what? What’s the punchline supposed to be?

    That’s how you know McCrory is a bully at heart. His reliance on lame-assed smarmy insinuation rather than wit.

  • William

    It will be so sweet to watch the courts kick him in the balls.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Cheap shots….I’m shocked, truly.

  • TheManicMechanic

    Make note of this and use it along with every other case of pure animus in court.
