RALEIGH, NC (WTVD) — Gov. Pat McCrory stunned abortion rights protesters outside the Executive Mansion in Raleigh Tuesday by hand-delivering them a plate of chocolate chip cookies.
The protesters, who were dressed in 1950s era outfits, gave them back.
“It was very quick,” said Planned Parenthood’s Irene Godinez.
Southern hospitality or chocolate chip diplomacy — either way the governor’s cookie gesture crumbled.
“Really, everyone was just in shock,” said Godinez.
