Gov. Gretchen Whitmer Takes a Break From Playing Fascist to Go After Tara Reade

Whitmer has ordered a review of Michigan auto insurers’ use of non-driving factors to set premiums and their pricing of policies that coordinate medical coverage with drivers’ health insurance. The Democrat’s move Wednesday comes as Republican lawmakers prepare to soon unveil legislation designed to reduce what on average are the country’s highest car insurance rates.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has spent most of the last few months playing fascist in her state of Michigan with draconian, illogical lockdowns. These include prohibitions of travel between one’s own properties, because the virus will apparently jump from car to car or something. For that, she’s received praise from the media and scorn from many of her constituents.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden is roiled in a sexual assault scandal that all of his allies are desperately trying to make go away. One of those allies is Whitmer, who hopes to be chosen as VP for the Biden ticket.

In pursuit of that goal, Whitmer went on Jake Tapper’s show today and was asked about Tara Reade’s allegation against Joe Biden. Her answer devolved into nonsensical, hypocritical tripe, which has become standard fare for most Democrats trying to respond to this because their previous reactions to the Kavanaugh ordeal have boxed them in.

 

They are trying desperately the square the circle, but just can’t.

No pattern? What planet is Whitmer living on? Biden has been accused by dozens of women of inappropriate touching and making them feel uncomfortable. We’ve got the guy on tape sniffing underage girls and trying to kiss them in public. Reade’s allegation may be an escalation from past claims, but there’s most certainly a pattern of Biden misbehaving toward women. Tapper, being the intrepid journalist that he is, doesn’t push Whitmer on that point, of course.

Meanwhile, what exactly makes Reade’s claim less “equal” than Blasey Ford’s? Whitmer doesn’t give a good answer and reality certainly doesn’t show her framing to be truthful. Reade’s claim is backed up by far more evidence than the claims against Kavanaugh, yet Whitmer and almost ever other “feminist Democrat” pronounced him guilty and tried to destroy his life at the time.

You know, in a way watching Whitmer twist herself into knots is sad. You are seeing someone so thirsty for power that they’ll literally say anything in their attempts to gain it. She wants to get the VP nod, so she’ll violate and rewrite all of her supposed principles surrounding sexual assault, even as she herself is a survivor of such.

In the end, Whitmer is unlikely to be chosen by Biden, but she’s willing to burn down everything she claims to stand for just for the chance. Desperation is rarely attractive in a politician.
