The Wikileaks Democratic National Committee email dump has stirred up a lot of controversy and lead to the resignation of DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
New revelations are still coming out as people comb through the documents.
While it is a stressful situation for registered Democrats, at least now it has provided some comedic relief, especially those living in North Carolina who are dealing with the fallout from the disastrous and discriminatory HB2.
In one of the leaked emails, a senior Democratic official calls North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory the “moronic little bigot of a tarheel governor.”

“Our hearts just sink when we see that kind of language being used,” Moronic Little Bigot Of A Tarheel Governor’s campaign spokesman Ricky Diaz told WSOC-TV. “It’s unacceptable. You know, it’s a shame that Democrats are being politically correct to the public and to the media, but then, when they’re behind closed doors, they’re calling Governor McCrory names.”

Or there’s having the moronic little bigot of a tarheel governor of your state, who is supposed to represent you, continually erase your identity by referring to transgender women as “men,” as McCrory loves to do when he is scaremongering with language about “men in women’s bathrooms.”
Moronic Little Bigot Of A Tarheel Governor McCrory signed HB2 into law, which nullified non-discrimination ordinances previously passed by cities and municipalities in the state, and prevents transgender people from using the bathrooms and locker rooms matching their gender in government owned facilities, as well as allowing business owners to set their own rules around the issue.

“I think some of the information coming out of the WikiLeaks shows that the other side was determined for there not to be a resolution of this issue because they thought it was good for them politically. No matter the harm,” said Dallas Woodhouse, the Executive Director of North Carolina’s Republican Party.
“They’re basically saying, ‘Good work, good work, North Carolina Democratic Party, getting the word out there about the damage that this bill is doing,” explained Dave Miranda, a state party member.
McCrory is up for reelection in November, against Attorney General Roy Cooper, who has called for the repeal of HB2, therefore showing himself not to be a moronic little bigot of a tarheel AG.
“If any of you need to use the restrooms…If you have any questions, go to the Philadelphia convention where all the Democrats are,” he said.
