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.
