You Ladies Don’t Need Clinics, You Need Cookies

n Tuesday afternoon, McCrory — along with four of his security guards — came out of his mansion’s gates to deliver a plate of chocolate chip cookies to the crowd of protesters. He handed the plate to one of the activists and reportedly told her, “These are for you. God bless you, God bless you, God bless you.”

The gesture wasn’t well-received by the reproductive health activists frustrated with the governor’s recent legislative decisions. The protesters, who considered the move to be condescending, didn’t eat any of the cookies. Instead, they slipped the plate back under the mansion gates along with a note reading “We want women’s health care, not cookies.” They also began a chant: “Hey Pat, that was rude. You wouldn’t give cookies to a dude.”

Is there a gold medal for patronizing?   These seems like a solid attempt to win it.
