Well, this is embarrassing. It turns out former North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory lost out on a position with the Department of Energy because Donald Trump found him too problematic.

Chief among them: the former Governor’s signing of a bill that stripped cities of their LGBTQ protection ordinances, and that forced transgender individuals to use the bathroom of their assigned birth sex. McCrory...
