Senate Leader Calls Gov. Whitmer Out For Her Boat “Lie;” Her Response Is Both Ridiculous And Audacious

(Liberty Bell) – Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who has long been rumored to be one of the potential top picks for Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden’s vice president pick, is watching her chances of being chosen for the honor go up in flames, thanks in large part to a bit of hypocrisy over some of her draconian measures involving the coronavirus pandemic.

Whitmer has gained a lot of notoriety over the last few months after putting restrictions on what kind of goods people could buy at stores during lockdown along with her antagonistic attitude toward protesters who are sick and tired of not being able to work and provide for their families.

Things have only gotten worse for her over this little boat scandal. Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey put Whitmer on blast during a floor speech he gave on Wednesday, essentially calling the governor a “liar.”

Here’s more from Breitbart:

“The governor lied” about the story that her husband attempted to cut in line to get his boat in the water at their cottage in northern Michigan before other residents.

“Not only did she lie, but she directed her staff to lie on her behalf in order to cover up her own lies,” he said.

Shirkey went on to say that Whitmer went “in front of the cameras and admitted to the lie” on Tuesday.

“My husband made a failed attempt at humor last week when checking with the small business that helps with our boat and dock up north,” Whitmer said.

“Knowing it wouldn’t make a difference, he jokingly asked if being married to me might move him up in the queue,” she said.

“Obviously with the motorized boating prohibition in our early days of COVID-19, he thought it might get a laugh. It didn’t,” Whitmer continued.

“And to be honest, I wasn’t laughing either when it was relayed to me, because I knew how it would be perceived. He regrets it. I wish it wouldn’t have happened, and that’s really all we have to say about it,” she said.

If this was her husband’s attempt at humor, then yes, Whitmer is right, it wasn’t funny. At all. But there’s a lot of reasons to doubt what she’s saying is true. Could it be that she’s attempting to walk back this horrible situation and do some damage control in order to still remain a top candidate for Joe Biden’s presidential efforts?

Even without that factored in, other potential moves for the advancement of her political future could be drastically altered by how she handles this situation. Whitmer’s popularity is no doubt hurting after her poor choices in dealing with this pandemic. A scandal like this isn’t going to help matters much.

“It would be nice if this governor was as quick to identify failed leadership. How can we trust the governor, how can the citizens of Michigan trust the governor? What else is she willing to lie about if she lied about putting a boat into the water?” Shirkey said.

Tiffany Brown, a spokeswoman for Whitmer, stated that Shirkey’s speech was “incorrect” and then called on the senate majority leader to apologize to the governor.

The real question to ask is whether or not Gov. Whitmer is going to apologize to all of the protesters she’s punished for standing up for their rights and for the businesses that were destroyed by her decision to lockdown the economy in light of the coronavirus outbreak?

    • Thanks Cal!!!! I agree!!!!! I’m from Battle Creek, Michigan. And believe me Cal I didn’t vote her in. And I hope and pray that the people in Michigan will wake up now.

  1. It was actually about getting her boat dock in at her place on elk lake .The guys that talked to her husband tried to call him back but he didn’t return the phone call.Must have been a cold weekend in Lansing even though it was 90 degrees.I think he knew he screwd up at that point.So I am not even sure if she is being truthful about the lie.

  2. We have a mega incompetent criminal as President and the article is about condemning a governor and her husband about an unimportant boat issue. Meanwhile the Mobster-in-Chief said in March we have 15 corona cases, they were all getting better and the virus will go bye-bye in the Spring. That is the leader you brainwashed people believe is your savior. If you are a hater, he just may be your savior. Consider Joe.

    • The virus is slowing down. He is saying what the experts are saying. It may end with summer heat since it has been proven heat and humidity kill it quickly. It very well may come back in the falls. A British model says it will all be over by November 11. If models are to be believed. And yes there are multiple corona virus’. At least 4 cause the common cold.

      Are you as critical of the Democrat governors and members of congress who said to go out in crowds and have a good time as late as mid march. That doing anything else is racist and that travel bans from China were racist. Or are you just a Chinese Gov. troll trying to pass on false info?

  3. She is a Democrat, she opened her mouth, lies came out, so what is new? Put a blocked nose clamp on her, she will eventually opt to breathe in lieu of lie.

  4. A politician lying? What’s the problem? They ALL lie. They lie to get elected, lie to stay in office, and lie again to be reelected. Nothing new under the sun!

  5. If the Salem “witch trials” of the 1690s had expanded to a nation-wide franchise, Gretchen Whitmer would undoubtedly be considered as a prime candidate for guest of honor at a necktie party! Why? To the serious observer, her physiognomy is what’s called a dead giveaway! While bordering on the aesthetic, her features can suddenly and effortlessly shift to something akin to malignant hostility when confronted with dissent by her constituents to her policies vis-a-vis COVID-19 combined with the blatant hypocrisy manifested in her ritual confrontations with same! If Whitmer is NOT a witch, she’s sure doing a piss-poor job convincing her subjects to that end!

    • Yes, of course Robert but you should know by now that only “conservatives and republicans” are racists and “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for penetrator Biden.

  6. Hey craig mauger you massive mangina you, it is WHITMER WHO OWES THE PEOPLE OF MICHIGAN AN APOLOGY YOU BUFFOON. BTW, SHE DID INDEED LIE WHEN SHE FIRST SAID THAT “IT WAS A HOAX”.

  7. Biden would still pick her if she took a big dump on an orphan kids head who is in the children’s hospital for cancer, then pissed in the Pope’s personal holy water. He doesnt care if she or any other candidate is a bad person. The worse they are, the better he looks while next to them.

    • What a colorful way to make a point! You said it perhaps better than I could have, and believe it when I say that takes some doing! LMMFAO! 😆🤣😆🤣😆🤣
