This, folks, is a bad opinion.
Ted Cruz is making the media rounds lately — and sometimes even doing well — but on Thursday, he said something very bad during the taping of a town hall meeting in Buffalo, New York.

Speaking about the new and controversial 'bathroom law' the state of North Carolina hurriedly passed several weeks ago, Cruz seemed all for blatant anti-LGBT discrimination, saying:
"The state has the power to pass their own laws to make a determination that men should not be going to the bathroom with little girls."
Uh… that's not really what the law is about, Ted, but don't let your interpretation of reality get in the way of — heaven forbid — maybe actually being correct once in your life.
No matter, though, because the senator from Texas doubled down on his bad opinion:
"I'm not terribly excited about men being able to go alone into a bathroom with my daughters. And I think that is a perfectly reasonable determination for the people to make."

There's that terrible Republican attitude: take a blatantly discriminatory and unconstitutional new law, claim it is to protect the children, refer to the old chestnut of an LGBT conspiracy to attack kids in bathrooms, and deny basic human rights to American citizens.
Should we have expected anything else?
