N.C. Governor Just Explicitly Banished Caitlyn Jenner To The Men's Restroom

This was so unnecessary.

Hypocrisy is running abound, and if we could point a finger at one state in the country, it would be North Carolina. Since their HB2 bill came to fruition, the state has lost everything from major sporting events to major celebrity weddings, all of which has been mounting to unimaginable monetary losses.

Yet still, the current governor, Republican Pat McCrory keeps putting his foot in his mouth while up on his high horse. It's quite amazing, actually.

The latest absurdity came during the gubernatorial debate against Democrat Roy Cooper on Tuesday. 

In an attempt to defend his horrible actions, he blamed "liberals" for creating the "major change in culture" that supposedly led him to sign the bill into law.

He then explained what Caitlyn Jenner would have to look forward to should she ever choose to visit the state.

“In the private sector in North Carolina, she can go wherever the private sector wants her to,” McCrory said, referring to the Olympic gold medalist. “If she’s going to a shower facility at [University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill] after running around the track, she’s going to use the men’s shower.”

Um, ok. Watch the video below.

The guy is clearly off his rocker - he also committed to voting for Donald Trump, despite his latest disgraceful commentary. When Cooper called him out for continuing "to support a presidential candidate who condones sexual assault" and for citing that they "both have trouble with the facts and they both engage in divisive rhetoric," his response was... Trump-ish.

"He needs to have his mouth washed out with soap and so does Mrs. Clinton because she lies," Gov. McCrory replied.

Right. Good luck, North Carolina! Technically you're my home state but since I've been in NYC for 10 years now, consider me estranged! I send my love.
