“President Trump called this a war, and it is exactly that. Let’s act like it,” Whitmer said. “In World War II, there weren’t people lining up at the Capitol to protest the fact that they had to drop everything they were doing and build planes or tanks, or to ration food.
“They rolled up their sleeves, and they got to work,” she continued. “We were all in this together, and it wasn’t indefinite. It was until we had beaten the enemy. No state shined more in those days than the state of Michigan. We are called to act again. It is our time to shine, to put aside our political differences, to come together and defeat our common enemy.”
Radio host Steve Gruber responded to this false comparison by warning Whitmer that her petty totalitarianism is accomplishing nothing but to “put Michigan back in Donald Trump’s column” for the presidential election in November.
