Outgoing Governor Pat McCrory, of North Carolina, recently held a special session to supposedly create legislation protecting the state against "natural disasters." Instead, he and his fellow North Carolina Republicans implemented legislation severely limiting the political power of McRory's Democratic replacement, Roy Cooper.
"Ironically, it's the first natural disaster North Carolinians can legitimately blame on tolerance for LGBT people," Full Frontal's Samantha Bee said, recapping the shenanigans on last night's episode.
"Oh my god, this is a preview of the King Trump times, isn't it? And there's not a lot Democrats can do about it because respecting the will of voters is more of a norm than a law, she continued, before going all in:
"While Democrats are busy signing petitions and frantically googling the word 'emoluments,' savvy Republicans get elected to the statehouse, shut the door, and go hog-f--ing wild, until one day you wake up and wonder, 'Hey, where'd the Planned Parenthood go, and why is my tap water so thick?' So if you're looking for a place to put your energies, stop trying to overturn a national election and start working on a local election. They matter!"
