North Carolina Gov. Gives Female Protester Cookies After Stripping Abortion Rights
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) may have just signed legislation that will restrict the ability of women to get safe and legal abortions, but he’s not a monster.
On Tuesday, the governor ventured outside the gates of his mansion with four security guards and singled out one pro-choice activist to give her a plate of cookies.
“I was like, ‘Me?’ and he nodded,” Chapel Hill resident Jamie Sohn recalled to the News and Observer.
“These are for you. God bless you, God bless you, God bless you,” she said McCrory told her after his security guards stopped traffic.
Sohn was too stunned to reply.
But she and her fellow activists wasted no time sliding the cookies back under the gate of the governor’s mansion with a note: “Hey Pat, that was rude. You wouldn’t give cookies to a dude.”
Wow. I’ve seen some patronizing assholes in my day, but this takes it to a whole new level.
