Lockdown Queen Gretchen Whitmer reportedly interviewed by Biden for VP slot

Lockdown Queen Gretchen Whitmer reportedly interviewed by Biden for VP slot

Seriously under consideration, or a coordinated media leak headfake? It’s hard to imagine Nurse Rached one heartbeat away from the presidency.

In a nation filled with petty government tyrants and bullies empowered by coronavirus panic, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer stands out as possibly the most petty and most tyranical of the bunch.

Whitmer has shown such a unique combination of fanatical self-righteousness and psychopathic vindictiveness that most people wrote off her vice-presidential prospects.

But wait, there are multiple news reports that Whitmer is on the final shortlist, and flew to Delaware to be interviewed by Biden. AP reports:

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer traveled to Delaware last weekend to meet with Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s first known in-person session with a potential running mate as he nears a decision.

Whitmer visited Biden Sunday, according to two high-ranking Michigan Democrats who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The first-term governor of the battleground state has long been on his short list of possible running mates.

Flight records show a chartered plane left Lansing’s Capital Region International Airport for Delaware Coastal Airport at 5:33 p.m. and returned at 11:16 p.m.

The governor’s office declined to confirm or deny the trip.

“We don’t discuss her personal schedule,” spokeswoman Tiffany Brown said.

Biden’s campaign declined to comment.

But wait, she’s not black. No problem, per AP:

Biden is facing calls to select a Black woman to acknowledge their crucial role in Democratic politics and in response to the nation’s reckoning with systemic racism.

Whitmer has sought to address racism and racial inequity. In April, she created a task force to address the pandemic’s racial disparities and later proposed police reforms in the wake of George Floyd’s death. On Wednesday — days after visiting Biden — she declared racism a public health crisis, created an advisory council of Black leaders and required implicit bias training for all state employees.

If Whitmer is chosen to join the ticket and Biden wins, Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II would become the country’s only Black governor.

Biden and Whitmer formed a bond after he campaigned for her in the 2018 gubernatorial election. She is a co-chair on his campaign.

Numerous other news outlets have their own “sources” for the interview, so clearly there is a coordinated leak from the Biden campaign.

Assuming the interview happened, the leak of that information likely is a headfake, so that when Biden unveils his pick of someone else it will be a ‘surprise’ which shows how media savvy his campaign is.

If not a headfake, why in the world would Whitmer be chosen? Two reasons I see: Her lockdown obsessiveness would fit into the Biden campaign theme of Trump being lackadaisical in the federal response, and the Biden campaign sees her as helping them in Michigan.

There are not many on Biden’s shortlist who would be as frightening as president — which the VP will be soon because Biden is not okay — than Whitmer. Even malicious prosecutor Kamela Harris, deep state Susan Rice, and Castro-worshipping Karen Bass, are less openly abusive in their demeanor. Elizabeth Warren arguably is worse than Whitmer, but no one is talking much about her anymore (an August surprise?).

Maybe that’s Biden’s play when he picks one of those three: Look, it could of been worse, we could have nominated Nurse Rached.

So is it real or just a headfake?

Here’s my assessment the other day of the prospects of Whitmer getting the nod:

Gretchen Whitmer — The Wicked Witch of the Midwest. You want to motivate Trump voters? Pick her.

to the full extent allowed by law.


Head fake. He painted himself into a corner with the “Woman of Color” comment. He knows he can’t win, that is why he will pick Stacey Abrams. He needs a scapegoat.

    I wonder if Biden is so senile that he could stomach dealing with her, especially being face to face with her, having to listen to her. I could see him killing himself just to get relief.

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to scooterjay. | August 10, 2020 at 9:01 am

    Sore Loser Abrams? No way. He will pick Rice first. That is why I still say it is Whitmer.

The media is not supposed to care about all of this, Biden is supposed to be clobbering Trump in the polls and have all the swing states clinched. Is your narrative collapsing, media?

My money is still on this evil lady, Whitmer. I’m positive Harris won’t get it, that prosecutor arresting black people is a tough image for a Democrat to take.

    “I’m positive Harris won’t get it, that prosecutor arresting black people is a tough image for a Democrat to take.”

    Meh. The hagiographic coverage of the Antifa/BLM brownshirts will vanish in a microsecond if needed to clear the path for Harris. The Joseph Goebbels media has had decades of practice with implementing these sorts of lightning-fast flip-flops.

    Recall how in the blink of an eye the media Narrative went from “Trump won’t accept the results of the 2016 election” to “Resist Trump by any means necessary”.

Some thoughts:

1) She spent more time (possibly near double the time) traveling to and from Biden’s house than she spent at Biden’s house being ‘interviewed’. Less than 6 hours from wheels up in Lansing to wheels back down in Lansing seems awfully short to me.

2) Perhaps this is the Biden campaign’s version of the NFL’s Rooney Rule.

Oh, and one more. It was only mentioned that she went. If her husband had gone with her I’d take the seriousness of her chances at VP a bit more seriously.

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to p. | August 10, 2020 at 8:59 am

    I don’t get it. Why would her husband have any say in the matter? If she tells him to move to Washington DC, he moves to Washington DC.

This has got to be a head fake.

Makes more sense than Rice but not any more a threat for their success. Maybe a help for the difference adding a petty dictator to show where the Democrats are heading.

She could easily trigger CW2.

Whitmer is one of the most ineffective governors in the history of governorship. She ran on one issue, “Fix the Damn Roads!” Her only recommendation was a 75 cent gas tax making Michigan’s gas tax one of the highest in the nation. The funds wouldn’t go to roads either. They would be deposited in the general fund and earmarked. The tax was also seen as regressive, causing hardship on the poorest Michiganders. Needless to say it crashed and burned.

As a state senate leader she represented a minority party that faced supermajorities in both the Michigan House and Senate. She was a do nothing politician who termed out.

She ran as a “centrist” but has been proven to be a serious progressive Leftist once in office. Her opponent for governor was a terrible candidate who was groomed by the State GOP. The only reason he was there was because it was his turn. The voters, and me, recognized his swampiness.

Bottom line, Whitmer brings nothing to the ticket as V.P. She is singularly focused on destroying Michigan, so she can’t even promise that. She brings no votes or money around the country and because she is a nobody and not black, there may be resentment from the coastal Leftist elites.

Ha – she’d probably put a pillow over Biden’s head the first chance she got.

How does she poll in Michigan, right now? It is a key state.

    JasonL in reply to clintack. | August 8, 2020 at 11:44 am

    We don’t know how Whitmer polls in Michigan because the polls are entirely unreliable, especially before Labor Day in a year where she is not running for re-election.

Smoke and mirrors.

When “Biden said” that he would pick a woman “of color” he(they) said so because they had already picked. I think my bet has always been on Susan Rice, with Jarrett as a second choice. Both of them only because for some strange reason Michelle Obama won’t do it.
Some internal storm has to be happening right now for them to keep delaying the announcement, and it is possibly, in my opinion, because they never thought Biden’s decline would be so evident.
Oh, to be a fly on that wall.

    Whew! Rice is horrible, but Jarrett is monstrous! Imagine the damage such an evil twit would do to our country. Finishing the job she started with Former Dear Leader. Egads!

      Exiliado in reply to NavyMustang. | August 8, 2020 at 12:34 pm

      Oh, yeah, they are horrible, and monstrous and more. And so was Obama. They want to keep on doing the job they could not finish.

    Er, MO is lazy and would rather wear thigh high slits on a cheap looking yellow rags with thigh high yellow boots than a biz suit. Thinks it makes her look sexy and “with it” and and not a fool.

    murkyv in reply to Exiliado. | August 8, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    This is to be Jarretts third term running the Oval Office from the shadows

    She’s making the pick this time, and will be the one running things again

I do not see Whitmer being worse than Bass. The latter is not merely a Castrophile. She worked as an agent of the Castro regime/USSR in a program run specifically in order to plant hostile agents within the US government.

Whitmer is a venomous snake wearing warning coloration; Bass is one wearing camouflage in tall grass.

Whitmer also screwed up on unemployment benefits after the covid-inspired lockdown. She couldn’t even get THAT right. She managed to out-Cuomo Cuomo by making sure that minors with the WuFlu (there are not many) were placed in nursing homes. Seriously.

Please, please, please! Please turn your back on your promise to choose a black woman!

BierceAmbrose | August 8, 2020 at 11:51 am

Yeah, they picked first, n announced the criteria after.

Biden needs Team Obama, for ops, mobilization, n to try to stay out of jail. Team Obama has the loyalty of scorpions – they’ll throw anyone under the bus in an instant. Biden only gets their help if it gets them in, not him. (Shades of Clinton / Gore.)

Jarrett has too many skeletons in closet, n is miserable exposed to voters. Michelle O would lose her icon / image position if she started doing real work. (Ref Camille Paglia for iconic images to fill.)

Kamala Extract isn’t a made membernof Team Obama.

This all reminds me of the overused comic gag of striking up the band to introduce the star of the event … who unknown to the audience is either having a meltdown in the dressing room, hasn’t yet arrived, or is drunk and only semi-conscious … while the stage manager is frantically signaling the band leader to string it out or “NO, NOT YET!” … how many times can the Dems build the fanfare to a thundering crescendo only to let the air out of the party like deflating bag-pipes?!?

The mental image of trying to “whip up the crowd” only to introduce Biden makes me laugh. And Whitmer? Will they license her with the theme from Jaws?

I just can’t help it. Every single time I see her picture, I think Stepford Wives.

BierceAmbrose | August 8, 2020 at 12:19 pm

Does Whirmer count as woman of color now?

If it’s female and crazy, they love it.

fishingfool55 | August 8, 2020 at 1:37 pm

She is now banning press from attending in person her press conferences. Xoom only and can ask questions in writing. She picks which 6 questions that she wants to answer. No follow up questions allowed.

Headfake. And a poor one.
If Biden doesn’t nominate a black woman, black defectors &/or apathy will guarantee President Trump’s reelection.

Seriously, carve a monument of the black Jesus on that forehead.

Michigan Gov is an excellent choice – Puts michigan in the R column along with Wisconsin

Minn may be in R column with gov Waltz. mayor Frey and freddie gray peace full protests

    JasonL in reply to Joe-dallas. | August 8, 2020 at 5:38 pm

    I gotta say, I had planned not to vote because Trump has failed utterly in building the wall and expelling illegals. He’s not even make material progress stopping legal immigration that unemploys American workers (though now he’s bragging about his move with the TVA). But if Nurse Rached is part of the team I will vote early and often.

“What do you mean Whitmer is white? She’s so bossy, I just assumed!”

Attention: All black women, including oprah, please take the time to familiarize yourselves with the underside of this bus. It’s going to he your new home. Forever. Yours truly, joey ‘Finger man’ bidet.

I’ve been betting Whitmer for a while. The Democrats are campaigning on COVID to the exclusion of all else, because that is their best way to win. Picking Susan Rice would bring foreign policy to the forefront, and that wouldn’t necessarily be good for their ticket’s prospects. It has to be Whitmer.
