NC lawmaker to women marchers: ‘If brains were lard, you couldn’t grease a small skillet’
North Carolina Republican state Sen. Joyce Krawiec expressed regret this week after lashing out at people who demonstrated at Saturday’s Women’s March.
“Message to crazies @ Women’s March — If Brains were lard, you couldn’t grease a small skillet. You know who you are,” Krawiec wrote in a message posted to Twitter, according to NC Policy Watch.
Krawiec later deleted the tweet and issued a partial apology.
“I apologize to those women who marched for right reasons,” she insisted. “I was only talking about those I described. They didn’t speak for all women.”
“BTW I was only speaking of the DC protesters dressed inappropriately and spewing foul language. Disrespecting women. Not representing women”
Hi @joycekrawiec, just wanted to see if you could elaborate on this

North Carolina Insurance Commissioner Mike Causey (R) also came under fire this week for sharing a photo of marchers on Facebook.
“In one day, Trump got more fat women out walking than Michelle Obama did in 8 years,” a message accompanying the photo read.
Causey later said that his post “represented a momentary lapse in judgment on my part for which I am truly sorry.”
