On Fox News Friday night, Michigan State Representative Karen Whitsett told Tucker Carlson that text messages she's been receiving from Governor Whitmer have not been pleasant ever since the Democratic state lawmaker credited President Trump for her personal recovery from the Wuhan coronavirus. The lawmaker now faces a censure from her Democratic colleagues for crediting the president for her recovery.
Responding to Tucker Carlson's question as to whether the governor had called her to say, “I'm so glad you didn't die,” Rep. Whitsett responded, “Actually, it was not as pleasant as that and the text messages that we have had since then have not been as pleasant as well.”
Wow. Instead of working to get Michigan what it needs to fight the coronavirus, Gretchen Whitmer is harassing a COVID-19 survivor and getting lapdogs to censure members of her own partypic.twitter.com/rOYY2di41A— Elizabeth Harrington (@LizRNC) April 25, 2020
Michigan State Rep. Karen Whitsett, @KayLyme, was HAMMERED by her own party after she thanked President Trump and slammed her governor's misleading policies. And she has a strong message for Gov. Whitmer: "You need to DO YOUR JOB!" pic.twitter.com/lEIyomprsD— Glenn Beck (@glennbeck) April 24, 2020
State Rep. Whitsett nearly died from coronavirus, but because she dared to say something positive about @realDonaldTrump, Michigan Democrat party bosses are effectively kicking her out of the party.— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) April 24, 2020
I stand with my sister, Rep. Karen Whitsett, as she weathers the storm simply for being a black woman with the audacity to think for herself.— Vernon Jones (@RepVernonJones) April 24, 2020
Keep fighting, @KayLyme!
Democrats are bullying Michigan State Rep Karen Whitsett for speaking her truth and thanking President Donald Trump.— Diamond and Silk® (@DiamondandSilk) April 24, 2020
Since the Democrats are trying to give her the boot, she's always welcome to join Republican Party. We will receive her with open arms!
