Pat McCrory's downward spiral. Rejected by voters, academia and the Trump Administration.

Pat McCrory is still coping with his loss last year to Roy Cooper. He recently told WRAL that it has been a “tough transition to leave a job he loved.”

In less than a year, the voters of North Carolina rejected him, academia rejected him, and the Trump administration rejected him. 

Even the Trump family wedding planner got a job overseeing “billions of federal dollars as the head of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s New York and New Jersey office.” That has got to hurt.

What’s worse is his successor has been busy as a member of Donald Trump’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis, working to solve a crisis with an administration McCrory has been so eager to join.

With his employment prospects bleak, McCrory has now decided to torment all of us with a Carolina Comeback that no one asked for, saying "I'd be foolish not to reconsider coming back.”
