Congressman mocks the GOP's "great American bathroom controversy," ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

“The party of small government wants a government small enough to fit underneath the toilet seat,” said Democrat Alan Grayson.

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) made fun of Republicans on Friday for being “obsessed” with where transgender people go to the bathroom, delivering a speech on the House floor that fell somewhere between a comedy skit and a biting policy attack.

“I rise today to address the great American bathroom controversy,” began Grayson, who is currently running for Senate.

He stood next to a poster of actress Christine Jorgensen, the first widely known transsexual woman in the country. Grayson imagined a scenario where Jorgensen had to use a public restroom today in North Carolina — where Gov. Pat McCrory (R) in March signed a law barring transgender people from using bathrooms that match their gender identity.

“You’re going to force people who look like men, act like men — you’re going to force them into a ladies room?” Grayson asked, propping up another picture of two women standing in front of urinals, looking annoyed. “You folks in North Carolina who are obsessed with where the transgendered go to the bathroom, this is the result you’ve come up with?”

The Florida congressman offered a few choice words about his feelings on the North Carolina law — “stupid,” “bad,” “ridiculous” — and wondered aloud how the Republican Party can claim to be the party of small government when it’s focused on regulating transgender people’s bathroom habits.

“It turns out the party of small government wants a government small enough to fit underneath the toilet seat,” Grayson said, adding that if people really want to tackle gender issues, they should do something about the fact that women in the U.S. still make 79 cents for every dollar that a man makes.

Watch Grayson’s full, animated speech below. He dropped the word “cisgender” — possibly a first on the House floor — and propped up another poster of a cartoon boy and girl looking into their underwear and declaring, “Oh! That explains the difference in our wages.”

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
