Attorney General Loretta Lynch Takes North Carolina To School On LGBT Civil Rights, Announces Lawsuit Over 'State-Sponsored Discrimination'!

She's not playing around!

As you may have heard, Gov. Pat McCrory cemented his place on the wrong side of history on Monday when he decided to sue the Department of Justice for trying to make him publicly repeal House Bill 2.

The Republican North Carolina Governor infamously passed the bill back in March, which made it so transgender individuals were forced to use the bathroom to which they were assigned at birth, as opposed to the gender to which they currently identify, and has so far failed to apologize by his 5 p.m. EST deadline.

While most Americans were smart enough to realize this was obviously a discriminatory law almost as soon as it was announced, Pat thought he'd be able to get away with suing the country for "baseless and blatant overreach" of their power…

Luckily, Attorney General Loretta Lynch was not about to give McCrory the upper hand, so she herself filed a lawsuit against North Carolina for going against the nation's laws on Monday!

In a press conference held less than an hour before NC's LGBT deadline, Loretta condemned Pat and the rest of the State for implementing such a bigoted bill, even comparing it to Jim Crow laws and Brown v Board Of Education!
