I know it’s hard to believe, but Joe Biden is so incompetent that he once had Michigan Governor Gretchen ‘It Wasn’t Me’ Whitmer on a shortlist as a vice-presidential running mate. I know it denies belief in a Benevolent Being, but it’s true.
Like the foolish Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, Whitmer received great press from when she would speak out against then-President Donald Trump, and she was a woman. (Apparently giving Trump a hard time made you a star in the eyes of the idiot media. They once touted creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti for president because he constantly said things going against Trump and then wound up in jail for being a total scumbag.) Whitmer just didn’t have the right skin color. That meant the racist Joe Biden would never have chosen her, anyway. Yes, it is racist – and sexist – to say that you will only entertain a black woman for the gig, essentially excluding everyone who isn’t black and female, even when you do it in the name of racial equity. This is what the Critical Race Theory racists still do not understand. You cannot combat racism with racism.
And had Biden not created a racist litmus test for his VP selection, he might not have gone with Whitmer anyway because, like Cuomo, she also has the flawed personality of never accepting responsibility for any screw-up she does. Biden needed someone he knew would fall on the sword when things got tough.
On NBC’s Meet the (De)Press(ed) on Sunday, Whitmer said that the recent surge in COVID-19 cases that pushed her state to become a national outlier can in part be blamed on the Michigan Supreme Court that shut down a law when the Court ruled that the 75-year-old emergency powers act was incompatible with the Michigan Constitution mostly because it illegally delegated legislative power to the executive branch, rendering them as unconstitutional.
This was a different take by the governor from right after the October Michigan Supreme Court ruling when she claimed that she still had powers related to public health measures and would only require legislative approval for other things like extending unemployment benefits and allowing local governments to hold public meetings virtually. Whitmer also said that she eased COVID mitigation restrictions voluntarily and not because of anything the Court ruled, even though new cases were on the rise.
The Michigan governor was one of the most risk-averse Democrat governors when the pandemic began shutting everything down, including making it a crime for residents to travel to their own vacation homes. She even tried to ban motorboats until her husband got caught trying to get his boat out of dock by telling Tad Dowker, the owner of NorthShore Dock LLC “I am the husband to the governor, will this make a difference?” Whitmer later had to cover for her husband saying that the whole affair was a joke. I think if nothing else it just proved that jerks attract.
It’s certainly no shocker that Whitmer tried to blame others for the surge in COVID cases.
Whitmer told Chuck Todd, “I have been sued by my Legislature, I have lost in a Republican-controlled (Michigan) Supreme Court, and I don’t have all of the exact same tools,” after Mr. Sleepy Eyes played clips of her prior statements accusing her of doing an about-face on following the science.
On a side note, if the Democrats really did follow the science they would have ended their draconian mitigation measures over a year ago after top epidemiologists said that lockdowns were the worst thing they could do to combat the virus.
The governor went on to say that the state still has “strong measures to keep people safe,” and is “still doing what we can.” She also cited the success Michigan had early on during the pandemic, when she imposed strict measures on business and other activities, which she said resulted in “vast reservoirs of people who don’t have antibodies,” who were susceptible to highly contagious variants now circulating.
So Gretchen Whitmer declared that because of the spectacular job she did locking everyone down and taking away their freedoms at the start of the pandemic, people now getting sick is because they don’t have antibodies. Thank God this pinhead is not a doctor, because she could have done far more damage than she just as a Democrat politician.
In fact, Whitmer’s COVID policies made things much worse than if she did nothing at all. Her policies destroyed her state’s economy, which I believe was done by design to harm small businesses which are the backbone of state support for Republican candidates. I believe Democrats schemed to shut down the Republican’s largest donor base for the 2020 elections. Now, the governor is trying to get a handle on the pandemic without completely destroying the state’s economy once and for all, but the damage was done from her previous mistakes that it looks like Michigan will have to endure the current spike in cases without Nervous Nellie’s help.
