Trump meets with Pat McCrory today

Pat McCrory
President-elect Donald Trump will be meeting with North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory on Wednesday. This meeting comes a day after Trump visited North Carolina as part of his victory lap. McCrory was voted out of office last month. Does Trump have a place for the five-watt bulb McCrory in the administration. Why not? Virtually every one of Trump's picks is an anti-LGBT Christianist. Homophobia seems to be a necessary qualification for joining the Trump team.

Apparently Trump was in favor of North Carolina's HB2. The controversial and divisive measure preempts municipal LGBT nondiscrimination protections while prohibiting transgender people from using restrooms consistent with their gender identity. I write “apparently” because that was the last known position of Trump who had previously voiced opposition to HB2.

McCrory stands for everything that is wrong with conservative Christians imposing their ideology on public policy. It has cost North Carolina tens of millions of dollars in commerce and tax revenues. Meeting with him is just one more slap in the face from that great friend of the LGBT community that Trump claimed to be.
