If a Facebook video was any indication, Pat McCrory did not receive a warm welcome during at least part of his trip to Washington, D.C. over the inaugural weekend.
The video was posted by Udai Basavaraj Friday at around 4 p.m. and is tagged at the Capital Hilton in D.C. The LGBTQ Nation website picked up the video on Saturday. By Sunday the video had more than 53,000 views, nearly 500 reactions, 300 shares and 100 comments on Basavaraj’s Facebook page.
In the more-than-three-minute video, McCrory, television personality and conservative pundit Lou Dobbs and three unidentified women are approached by people on the street who shout “Shame!” and call McCrory an “anti-gay bigot.” McCrory and his group try to avoid the group of people shouting, but are followed down an alley where they waited to be admitted to the building.”
