Whitmer: I’ve Had ‘Opening Conversation’ With Biden Campaign About VP Pick

(Breitbart) – Tuesday on NBC’s “Today 3rd Hour,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) said she had had an “opening conversation” with Joe Biden’s campaign about being the running mate for the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee and former vice president.

Host Craig Melvin asked, “I’m obligated to ask about the vice-presidential search how is the vetting process going so far are you being vetted by Mr. Biden.”

Whitmer said, “You know what, I’ve had a conversation with some folks. The fact of the matter is, all of my energy is going into helping my state through this crisis, unlike one that we’ve seen in 100 years in this country. We have to get it right. I was elected to be the governor of the state of Michigan. It is the honor of a lifetime, and that’s where I’m spending 100% of my energy and focus. We’ve got a crisis like nothing we’ve ever seen before, and all.”

Melvin pressed, “Governor, real quickly, this conversation you had, how would you characterize the conversation?”

Whitmer replied, “It was just an opening conversation, and it’s not something that I would call a professional, formalized vetting. I am making a little bit of time to stay connected to the campaign, but the most important thing that I have to do right now is be the governor of my home state. That’s all that matters to me in this moment, and that’s where I’m going to stay all my energy focused.”

Flashback: Whitmer On Biden Allegations: Not Every Claim Of Sexual Assault Is Equal

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) said not every claim was equal when asked about the sexual assault allegations against presumptive Democratic nominee former Vice President Joe Biden.

Whitmer said, “As a survivor, and as a feminist, I’ll say this. We need to give people an opportunity to tell their story. Then we have a duty to vet it. And just because you’re a survivor doesn’t mean that every claim is equal. It means we give them the ability to make their case and the other side as well. And then to make a judgment that is informed. I have read a lot about this current allegation. I know Joe Biden, and I’ve watched his defense. There’s not a pattern that goes into this. And I think for these reasons, I’m very comfortable that Joe Biden is who he says he is. And you know what, that’s all I’m going to say about it. I really resent the fact that every time a case comes up, all of us survivors have to weigh in. It is reopening wounds, and it is— you know, take us at our word, ask us for our opinion, and let’s move on.”

  1. What a joke. Does she really think anyone would support her after she has made their lives a living hell with her power drunken rules? She says she’s been busy getting her state through this terrible pandemic; she has been NO HELP, but instead a hindrance to families living their everyday lives. Her asinine rules like not being able to buy a pack of seeds or paint or an American flag. All of these things could be used at this time for growing a garden, painting your house and showing patriotism flying the American flag on Memorial Day weekend. And let’s not forget, you can go out on your boat, but it can’t have a motor on it. I’m still scratching my head on this one too. Maybe she reasons that the motorboat will zoom over to another boat nearer than 6 feet before anyone can stop it. This woman can never be in a position where she has any level of authority over other humans. She just gets crazy given a little power. People like her are dangerous. I hope those governors & mayors that have been unreasonable are remembered at the polls, ending their hopes of a position of authority, ever.

  2. It is amazing to me how so many people are willing to believe and trust their country , their lives and wellfare of their families to the words and actions of the people who have been consistant for decades, using the power and authority given via election, to harm Americans and American freedoms to the point of taking lives and lively hoods with their false words of promise of help and intention to act for our good. They have been false with detrimental results each and every time, yet the democrats have faired well without thought or interest for the hell they are creating for us with each and every thing they touch.
