President Obama seriously needs to get his priorities in order, according to the Family Research Council.

The pro-family group on Wednesday released a video questioning why the president is so preoccupied with transgender restrooms in North Carolina, when he should be concerned with the threats posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, Russia, North Korea and Iran.

The 75-second spot notes that Mr. Obama has “devoted five federal departments to investigate North Carolina with the threat of pulling federal funding from the state” over HB2, a law prohibiting opposite sex use of public restrooms.

“Doesn’t he have better things to do?” the video continues. “So, while ISIS is infiltrating America, President Obama seems confused about human biology. While Russia taunts our military, President Obama is fighting for men to have access to women’s locker rooms. While Iran and North Korea fire ballistic missiles, President Obama is demanding grown men have the right to use women’s bathrooms.”

“So, instead of protecting our country, President Obama would rather defy common sense and pander to radical activists,” it concludes.

Mr. Obama’s Department of Justice on Wednesday threatened to pull millions of federal education dollars from North Carolina public schools if the law is not repealed by Monday.
