Those mean old protestors might harm his delicate sensibilities:
While Graham Wilson, the governor’s press secretary, confirmed that Prosser will be attending the event as a representative of McCrory, Wilson was adamant that McCrory was never scheduled to attend the event in the first place. “He was never scheduled to be there. It was never on his schedule,” Wilson said.
During the parade, the Watauga County chapter of the NAACP has planned a “McCrory HB2 Protest” on Main Street in Blowing Rock, where the parade meanders.
Well, it's not on his schedule now, anyway. McCrory has become the Imelda Marcos of North Carolina, a fading figurehead who will likely drown his sorrow by collecting hundreds of pairs of expensive shoes. Which he won't get to wear in public, but at least he can pace around the Governor's mansion in style.
