ICYMI: McCrory defends HB2 on Meet The Press, claims Trump protesters are paid

If you spent most of Sunday outdoors enjoying the unseasonably warm weather, chances are you missed former Governor Pat McCrory’s appearance on NBC’s Meet The Press. In his role as a political pundit, McCrory continued to defend his decision to sign HB2 into law.

McCrory telling host Chuck Todd that other cities have legislation similar to North Carolina’s ‘bathroom bill’ and have seen no backlash:

So there’s a little selective hypocrisy right now in our country on which issues we’re going to boycott and which issues are we not going to boycott.

The former governor also suggested during the show that paid protesters where the explanation for the demonstrations swelling across the country following President Trump’s inauguration.

Fmr. Gov. Pat McCrory:

It takes money to coordinate these protests.

Greta Van Susteren:

No it doesn’t. It takes the internet. It takes the internet to coordinate.

McCrory’s remarks came one day after thousands of people packed the streets of downtown Raleigh for the 11th annual Moral March.

    Is McCrory fibbing again or is he just confused about Texas Laws? Texas does not have a law like HB2. While the Texas legislature is currently considering such a law, it hadn’t even been proposed when the NCAA played in Houston last year.

    They also talked about the ACA. McCrory said he’s on cobra now and it would cost him about $1,100. to get on ACA. Well isn’t that because he’s rich? He was the governor who wouldn’t accept expanded Medicaid. My understanding is that would bring down the cost of ACA. Why didn’t Todd call him on that?

    Unemployable dirtbag. Why hasn’t Faux News already snapped him up?

    Why does meet the press even bother to listen to this one term bigot. HE WAS the worst Governor NC ever has and doesn’t deserve to be heard any more. He ruined NC in 4 years. Enough of this incompetent idiot
