This is absolutely ridiculous.
Recently on MSNBC, Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) played victim and stated that every time President Trump “focuses on my state or on me, we see the violent rhetoric increase.”
According to Breitbart, MSNBC’s Hayes asked, “You wrote about being targeted. And obviously, there’s a few layers to this as you’ve been a target of national in the media, a target of the president, and obviously, it appears allegedly a target of this kidnapping plot. As the president turns his rhetorical fire on people, they end up needing 24-hour security. They end up having threats. what has it been like to be on the receiving end of that?”
Whitmer replied, “Well, it’s been hard, Chris. I mean, I don’t have a whole lot of time to stop and process it or feel sorry for myself. I’ve got a job to do, and I’m going to keep doing my job. But starting in April when the president singled me out and called me that woman from Michigan and tweeted ‘Liberate Michigan,’ every time he focuses on my state or on me, we see the violent rhetoric increase. We see the threats online increase. I have had to have a lot of serious hard conversations with my children when there are people with AR-15s out on our front lawn.”
