Speaking on behalf of "the entire Obama Administration" Monday, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch spoke in defense of the U.S. Department of Justice's lawsuit against North Carolina over their law clarifying that people use the bathrooms that match their biological sex regardless of their "gender identity."
During the press conference, Lynch compared North Carolina's "discriminatory" law to the widespread racial segregation of the Jim Crow era.
Today, according to the Politico, Donald Trump surrogate and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson blasted Lynch's comments, saying "That's what they always say. Everything is like Jim Crow. Everything is like racism and segregation and slavery. What a bunch of crap. You know, they want to do that so they can always gain the sympathy, but thinking people know better."
"You know," he added, addressing transgenderism, "we need to go back to recognizing data and science. You know, we know what men are, and we know what women are, and we've known that for thousands of years. You know, if there are some people who are confused about it, we can make some accommodations for them, but it doesn't have to involve everybody."
What do you think about what he said?
