Illustration for article titled Even Sentient Hate-Balloon Donald Trump Thinks North Carolinas Bathroom Law Went Too Far

In one positive sense, at least, man-sized roach motel Donald Trump is a true New Yorker: if he walks into a bathroom and see something going on he doesn’t understand, he’ll probably just mind his own business. On the Today show Thursday morning, he said North Carolina’s new, anti-trans bathroom law went too far: “Leave it the way it is.”


Trump was asked about the new bill, for which the ACLU is suing the state, and which is sparking boycotts by musicians and businesses alike. Trump’s not a fan either, but of course, as he is Donald Trump, his opposition comes less from compassion and more from thoughts about the bottom line.


Trump also said he “didn’t know” if he had any trans people working at the Trump Organization: “I don’t know. I probably do.”

He’s also fine with noted Trump fan Caitlyn Jenner using whatever bathroom she thinks is appropriate at Trump tower:

A bad person had a not-bad thought—and in this blighted, apocalyptic election landscape, I guess that’s news. Except your GOP front-runner immediately followed that up with deranged claims about respecting women (he doesn’t), and a suggestion that undocumented people will destroy the country.


Never mind. Express-train this man to Hell.

Here’s the full clip:
