Anthony Scaramucci thought HB2 was “shameful”

Anthony Scaramucci, President Trump’s new communications director, was not a fan of HB2, the sweeping anti-LGBTQ law passed by the General Assembly last year.

Scaramucci tweeted his disapproval on March 23, 2016, the day that the Republican majorities in the House and Senate met in a one-day special session to approve the discriminatory law in response to a local anti-discrimination ordinance passed by the Charlotte City Council.

Wonder if Scaramucci will stand up for LGBTQ folks in his new role as a top adviser to President Trump?

Trump recently announced a ban [3] on transgender people serving in the military which, like HB2 itself, is also shameful.
