At the last presidential debate, Trump said, “Take a look at what’s happening with your friend [Whitmer] in Michigan, where her husband is the only one allowed to do anything. It’s been like a prison.”
Fox News Anchor Chis Wallace said, “You had criticized the president, asking him to tone down the rhetoric, take down the heat discussing this. What did you think when he brought you up again in a debate watched by tens of millions of people?”
“Well, we are just days since the plot to kidnap and try and kill me was revealed,” Whitmer said, still milking that for sympathy. “First, I want to acknowledge the incredible work of the FBI and the Michigan state police. But I also want to acknowledge that rhetoric like this contributes to bringing up the heat. I have asked the White House since April to bring the heat down. That’s when the death threats started…
“This kind of rhetoric is anti-American, and it seeks to undermine the foundational principles of this country was founded on in combination with ridiculing your profession, undermining our military, misusing them,” she blathered. “All of these are efforts that will create such division and political and regime cleavage, it’s going to be hard for us as a nation to come back together. But if anyone can do it, I know it’s Joe Biden.”
Trump did not divide this country. He has only revealed how deep the division already was, a division created by the accelerated radicalism of the Democrat Party. Biden will only empower that radicalism and exacerbate the divide, not bring Americans together.
