Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) flubbed her big Trump bashing moment with an embarrassing hot mic incident.
Whitmer tried to bash Trump and did throughout her short speech at the DNC last night but no one is talking about her speech because of the f-bomb she dropped on a hot mic right before. (see video below)
Whitmer ripped Trump as “a president who fights his fellow Americans rather than fight the virus that’s killing us and our economy,” before adding, “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will lead by example. Science, not politics or ego, will drive their decisions.”
This is what she said on the hot mic: “It’s not just Shark Week,” Whitmer said. “It’s Shark Week, mother*ckers.”
She said last night:
LET ME BREAK IT DOWN. PRESIDENT OBAMA AND VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN SAFETY THESE AUTOWORKERS’LIVELIHOODS. AND THESE WORKERS DID THEIR PART TO SAVE AMERICAN LIVES. THAT IS THE STORY OF THIS GREAT NATION. ACTION BEGETS ACTION. PROGRESS GETS PROGRESS. AND WHEN WE WORK TOGETHER, WE CAN ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING. AFTER ALL, DEMOCRACY IS A TEAM SPORT. ESPECIALLY NOW. IT IS CRUCIAL THAT WE RALLY TOGETHER TO FIGHT THIS VIRUS, AND BUILD OUR ECONOMY BACK BETTER. FROM THE JUMP, WE TOOK THIS PANDEMIC SERIOUSLY IN MICHIGAN. WE LISTENED TO MEDICAL EXPERTS.
WE PLANNED. WITH A LOT OF WORK FROM THE AUTOWORKERS AND TOO LITTLE HELP FROM THE WHITE HOUSE, WE EXECUTED OUR PLAN. WE SAVED THOUSANDS OF LIVES. JUST IMAGINE, IF WE HAD A NATIONAL STRATEGY? SO EVERYONE WHO NEEDS A TEST GETS ONE FREE? SO EVERYONE HAS ACCESS TO A SAFE VACCINE? SO OUR KIDS AND EDUCATORS HAVE THE RESOURCES THEY NEED TO SAFELY GET BACK TO SCHOOL? WITH JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS IN THE WHITE HOUSE, WE WILL. JOE BIDEN AND KAMALA HARRIS WILL LEAD BY EXAMPLE.
IT WILL BE SCIENCE AND NOT POLITICS OR EGO THAT WILL DRIVE THEIR DECISIONS. THEY NOTE THE HEALTH OF OUR PEOPLE WAS HAND-IN-HAND WITH THE STRENGTH OF OUR ECONOMY. THEY KNOW ACTION BEGETS ACTION. OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS WE HAVE LEARNED WHAT IS ESSENTIAL, RISING TO THE CHALLENGE, NOT DENYING IT. WE HAVE LEARNED WHO IS ESSENTIAL.
NOT JUST THE WEALTHIEST AMONG US, NOT THE PRESIDENT WHO FIGHTS HIS FELLOW AMERICANS RATHER THAN FIGHT THE VIRUS THAT IS KILLING US AND OUR ECONOMY. IT IS THE PEOPLE WHO PUT THEIR OWN HEALTH AT RISK, TO CARE FOR THE REST OF US. THEY ARE THE MVPS.
THE NURSES AND THE DOCTORS. THE UTILITY WORKERS, TRUCK DRIVERS AND GROCERY CLERKS. THE TIRED COWORKERS, PARENTS AND TEACHERS.
THE POSTAL CARRIERS AND AUTOWORKERS. MANY OF THESE ESSENTIAL WORKERS HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES TO COVID. NEARLY 1000 HEALTH-CARE WORKERS. MORE THAN 170,000 PEOPLE ACROSS AMERICA. INCLUDING A FIVE-YEAR-OLD GIRL NAME SKYLER FROM DETROIT, WHOSE MOM IS A POLICE OFFICER AND DAD IS A FIREFIGHTER.
GENERATION AFTER GENERATION, OUR NATION HAS BEEN DEFINED BY WHAT WE DO, OR WHAT WE FAIL TO DO. SO, FOR SKYLER, FOR HER PARENTS, AND IN THE MEMORY OF ALL OF THOSE WE HAVE LOST, LET US ACT. LET US HEAL AS ONE NATION. LET US FIND STRENGTH, TO DO THE WORK.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer takes aim at Trump for his failure to act and reminds everyone that Obama and Biden went to work day 1 to save the automobile industry without blaming others-auto workers who then went on to help make gear for first responders. pic.twitter.com/EM68WqhUzo
