Trump Goes Off On Michigan Governor Whitmer: “She Doesn’t Have A Clue”

(Liberty Bell) – Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer wanted to turn the coronavirus pandemic into a personal battle with President Donald Trump, and well, she got what she wanted.

The Democrat governor thought that she wouldn’t be called out by Trump after criticizing the administration’s response to the outbreak, but she was wrong about that.

She earned herself a Trump tweet.

“Half” Whitmer…as in “half wit.” He sure knows how to dole out the best nicknames, doesn’t he?

During a White House press briefing on Friday, President Trump admitted that he had urged Vice President Mike Pence, who is heading up the White House coronavirus task force, never to call the governor and speak with her unless she can express some appreciation for the assistance.

“I think they should be appreciative,” he said of governors like Whitmer. “Because you know what? When they’re not appreciative to me, they’re not appreciative to the Army Corps, they’re not appreciative to FEMA, it’s not right. These people are incredible. They’re working 24 hours a day. I mean, Mike Pence, I don’t think he sleeps anymore.”

“These are people that should be appreciated. He calls all the governors. I tell him, I mean, I’m a different type of person. I say, ‘Mike, don’t call the governor of Washington. You’re wasting your time with him. Don’t call the woman in Michigan.’ … If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call. He’s a different type of person. He’ll call quietly anyway, okay? But he’s done a great job. He should be appreciated for the job he’s done.”

Trump also took aim at Washington Governor Jay Inslee, claiming that “he leveled out at zero in the polls, he’s constantly chirping, and I guess complaining would be a nice way of saying it.”

The president has every right to point out when governors are more interested in politicizing and obstructing his administration’s response rather than being earnestly willing to work together to resolve the crisis.

Meanwhile, Democrat governors like Whitmer have suggested that not only is the administration is failing to assist the states but even, in some cases, to deliberately thwart their efforts for aid.

Speaking with WWJ on Friday, she implied that the Trump administration is telling medical supply vendors not to conduct business in the state.

“When the federal government told us that we needed to go it ourselves, we started procuring every item we could get our hands on,” she reportedly said. “What I’ve gotten back is that vendors with whom we had contracts are now being told not to send stuff here to Michigan. It’s really concerning.”

“We’ve entered into a number of contracts and as we are getting closer to the date when shipments are supposed to come in, they’re getting canceled or they’re getting delayed,” she reportedly added during an appearance slightly later on CNN. “We’ve been told they’re going first to the federal government.”

On his part, the president has claimed that governors like Whitmer and Inslee are simply trying to blame him for their own failures.

“Your governor of Michigan, I mean, she’s not stepping up,” he’d said during an appearance on Fox News a day earlier. “I don’t know if she knows what’s going on, but all she does is sit there and blame the federal government. She doesn’t get it done. And we send her a lot.”

Whitmer took to Twitter that same evening to claim that all she wants is help for her state.

“I’ve asked repeatedly and respectfully for help. We need it. No more political attacks, just PPEs, ventilators, N95 masks, test kits. You said you stand with Michigan — prove it,” she wrote.

Yeah, right.

  1. It just like your so call trump if u dont kiss his ass u want get any help from him when r yaw going to wake up to hell with trump an every one else that side with him

  2. What do you expect him to do Andy?!? Some of these Dumocrat governors have taken every opportunity to criticize everything and anything this President says or does. They constantly tell him to stay out of their state business and then complain in this case he’s not doing enough. They talk like this whole thing is his fault. It’s a typical, ongoing attempt to discredit the President at every opportunity. Meanwhile they do little to improve their own states. They’re busier trying to defend the rights of illegals and letting the homeless crisis spin out of control than trying to protect their tax paying contituants. Disgraceful and irresponsible to use this tragic epidemic for their own political pulpits.

  3. If the news is correct(rare but possible), Governors in Nevada and Michigan have disallowed physicians in their states from prescribing hydroxycloroquine and chloroquine for the treatment of Coronavirus infection. With reports of 100% efficacy when combined w azithromycin, the FDA has made an emergency approved indication for the use of this medication against Coronavirus.
    Threatening to revoke licenses of physicians who prescribe these medicines in this manner is attempted genocide.
    Then the unmitigated gall to pretend concern and overdramatize for theatrics.
    Purely putrid.
    Who knows what news is true and accurate these days, but if the above accounts are true? Are YOU going to vote democrat??

  4. The person who NEVER admits he is wrong, and “sidelines” anyone who corrects him is Trump. You have to see that, or your blinded by your ideology. Why can’t he lead in a positive, embracing manner – pull the states together, and face this crisis as a unified nation. He makes EVERYTHING be about him. We have to move beyond his ego, and see that ALL people in this nation are respected and served.

    • Sorry you feel this way but what about the Democratic reps holding up the money? What about millions for the Kennedy center who said they were still laying people off? Mr. Trump has done nothing but try to bring the country together, but is being fought daily by democrats. After a while I’m sure he will get tired of all the bs!

    • The states were to buy what they needed..for emergencies.
      They used Federal Funds for other items, instead of buying what was suggested, like masks and respirators, as I understand it…especially New York City.

  5. Everybody wants to blame Trump, for their Screw ups. Why can’t you people admit that you are Stupid. Vote trump 2020 and Republican Forever

  6. Getting a VP slot with Sleepy Joe? Perfect couple to run the country. They both will be unemployed in 9 months. Trump will shred them to fine strips of paper.

  7. The more dead bodies the more the democrats think they can beat Trump in November. After the Pelosi shenanigans on impeachment, holding back the stimulus bill and adding pork, then lying about what happened, Cuomo lying about ventilators while he was hoarding them in a warehouse in NJ, the Michigan and Nevada governor outlawing the use of hydroxychloroquine for fighting the virus while doctors are claiming its successful use in fighting the virus, no democrat should ever be elected to any office.

  8. This is typical behavior from a true sociopath….ALWAYS blame others, pathological lying, lack of remorse, disregard for the safety of others, etc. I have no regard for this woman in the least…she is both ignorant AND stupid, and she cares nothing about the state of Michigan or its citizens!!!

    • “ALWAYS blame others, pathological lying, lack of remorse, disregard for the safety of others, etc.” That sounds exactly like Trump. And, he only cares about those that support him and are on his side!

  9. The question is the following. Why can 48 Governors work with the Trump Administration and two cannot? That is the question that the voters of Michigan and Washington should be asking. The answer is obvious. For two Governors, politics is more important that safety and security.

  10. People must learn the hard way that todays Dems are the Dems from 60 yrs ago. Give them 10-20 years and they will ruin your town, city, state or country. I was a Dem for 33 yrs but was not able to vote Dem the last ten yrs of those 33. After writing to party leaders I realized it was a waste of time. VOTE ANYONE BUT A DEM!

  11. As a Michigander everything I’ve read here is spot on. This demonicrat was elected by (as was stated already) was elected by stoners, unions and people from the larger cities like Detroit, Lansing, Flint, Grand Rapids to name a few. Then demonicrats get voted in and start cutting then blaming everyone but themselves.

  12. Even while she denies casting aspersions on the President, she claims she did nothing but RESPECTFULLY request help and then adds a taunt. ” you stand with Michigan, then prove it.” Not very respectful if you are requesting help that you deny is given and then challenge the person who helps. Go shake your fist at a volcano and demand it do your bidding. Respect? Governor you are spitting at the tornado to turn it away. Help the people of Michigan and shut your disrespectful pie hole. God Bless Texas, God Bless America and God Bless President and First Lady Trump. hooyah

    • And, Governor Whitmer, blame that loser Obama for the reason that masks and treatment supplies and ventilators are in short supply. Obama’s administration, yeah that Biden guy who coordinated their last virus pandemic, used up the stockpile of supplies and never attempted to renew the supply after their pandemic was over. So Trump inherited an empty storeroom to begin his job of dealing with this virus.

  13. Sad that Michigan Governor Whitmer puts politics ahead of Michigan citizens life. Throw the trash out in the next election.

    • always had respect for her until she ran for governor but she has proven to be as hateful as the rest of the DemoRat Left.

  14. As a Michigan voter, I can tell you that “Half Wit” has for sure lost two votes from this household. I’m 72 years old and of course staying at home as much as possible, but my daughter is working at an essential place of employment, and putting herself at risk for the people of our State. And this goofy governor we have bans the use of a drug that might help us all if she gets this “chinese disease” and brings it home?! Well the hell with that!!

    • I BELIEVE THAT THE MAYOR HAS A PROBLEM WITH TRUMP. SHE IS LIKE ALL THE DEMOCRATS, A EVIL PERSON. HATING TRUMP. THANKS TO TRUMP YOUR PEOPLE WHICH I THINK YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT, HAS BROUGHT JOBS FOR THE PEOPLE. THINK ABOUT THAT. OH, BUT YOU DON’T CARE YOU ARE DRAWING A GOOD SALARY. MAYBE THIS WILL STOP ON NEXT ELECTION. MAYBE THE VIRUS WILL HIT YOU AND TAKE YOU AWAY FOREVER.

  15. she’s got a big mouth and she has been badmouthing trump since she took office… what a loser… maybe she needs to be anally explored to shut her up…

  16. Of course Whitmer bans the use of Hydroxychoroquine, approved by the FDA, and proven in use in France, Israel, New York, even Michigan. Just because Trump mentioned it as a possible cure. Anything to bash Trump, even murder her own constituents.

  17. Clueless Gertie Witless was elected by the stoners when they voted for legalizing marijuana. She was useless as a state rep and did nothing when the Larry Nasser case was handed to her. Now she complained when she failed to request a disaster declaration until late last week.

    All she has been doing is being a mouthpiece for Paloozer on all the propaganda puppet shows that will have her to spread the demoscum lies and, as usual, blame Trump for everything.

  18. Nothing young about that woman. See seems to think attacking the president is going to get her a vp slot. Creeper/ bat chit crazy 2020 democrat ticket
