#BREAKING: NCAA is pulling events from states with anti-trans bills.
“When determining where championships are held, NCAA policy directs that only locations where hosts can commit to providing an environment that is safe, healthy and free of discrimination should be selected.”

Cue bigoted Republicans bashing the NCAA in 3...2...1...

There is no "public good" achieved by keeping these big-money donors secret. It makes no sense to require a $5,000 donor's name be made public, but then allowing a $50,000 donor to remain in the dark.
On radio show this morning @PatMcCroryNC said: "I'm doing a lot of thinking about my next moves in my twilight years, in the last quarter of my life. How do we be relevant? How do we make a difference? How do we leave this place a better place than when we arrived?" #ncpol https://t.co/lzyaoJBEOX

One-Term Pat doesn't know the difference between "a better place" and a parking space. Dude literally let oil companies move into his office to push their offshore drilling nonsense, dog only knows what mischief he'd get up to in the U.S. Senate.
David Thompson, giving opening arguments for the legislature in favor of voter ID: "Why would a racially motivated legislature create a reasonable impediment provision that allows everyone to vote, with or without an ID, provided they tell the truth?" #ncpol #ncga

That affidavit thing is, in itself, an unreasonable impediment to voting. But of course Republicans know that.
Via @NCHealthNews: 9.8% of NC’s population is Latino. But Latino residents have made up 21% of the state’s more than 930,000 cases of COVID-19.
As of April 8, they only made up 5.5% of those vaccinated.#nchealth #COVID19NC #ncnews #ncpolhttps://t.co/T5oR45V1P8

That is simply inexcusable, and an undeniable example of systemic racism.
The plaintiffs trying to block the people's will for voter ID told the judge at trial this morning "there's no smoking gun" and "motives are hidden."
An African American Dem sponsored the bill. Maybe you can't find racist motives because they don't exist. #ncpol #VoterID

In case you're wondering, that Dem he mentioned is (of course) Joel Ford, who was just given a seat on the UNC Board of Governors in appreciation for his steadfast support for the other party. Ehhhh...

Right, because we want our health experts to baby us, or just out-and-out lie like Donald Trump did. One day, it will just magically disappear! Idiot.
— Jeff Hauser (@j_hauser9) April 12, 2021
So...what are you saying, exactly? His Dem Primary opponents are going to "rip him apart" by being too extreme for the electorate? Put down the crack pipe, dude. Also, that "empty suit" is actually a camouflage uniform with Captain's bars. Jackass.
Happening now! Watch the live stream of the Grand Opening Ceremony for the new Duke Behavioral Health Center and Emergency Department Expansion.#DukeInNC #behavioralhealth #ncga #ncpol https://t.co/fc1TrX6zsW

Good for you. But I'd really rather have seen the grand opening of the Durham-Orange Light Rail project, which you helped to scuttle.
If Pat wasn’t good enough for Trump’s administration, he’s not good enough for NC.
I am running to provide NC with its first real conservative Senator in years. at 97%, I was the most conservative and pro-Trump member from NC and would be the top member in the entire Senate.

Keep blowing that Trumpet, Markie Mark. When his daughter-in-law decides to run, Trump will grind you under his golf shoes.
Traffic cameras catch cars, not drivers. Tickets are sent to a registered owner with no proof s/he was behind the wheel. These schemes are a bonanza for robocam companies, which take a hefty cut of the fine. N.C. Constitution directs all fines to public schools. #ncpol #ncga https://t.co/pLI4fcYJL2

Sometimes Libertarians get it right. This is not one of those times. If a registered owner of an automobile is allowing somebody else to drive it (family member, friend), and that person is speeding through a school zone, that owner should be fined. Before some child gets run over. Pick another battle, Corey.

And the Irony Stick swings hard for Pete's mostly empty noggin. Dude, Republicans are literally trying to "cancel" transgender youth with these bills. You need to read these Tweets outloud, to yourself, at least five times before publishing them. Probably won't help, but it's worth a shot.
On that face-palming note, here's your Onion:
