President Trump hosted a massive rally this afternoon in Muskegon, MI.
When President Trump mentioned Michigan’s overreaching Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the crowd responded with “Lock her up!” a chant that was commonly directed at “Crooked Hillary” during Trump’s 2016 rallies.
Governor Gretchen Whitmer, who regularly attacks President Trump to score points with her far-left base, tweeted a clip of the Michigan residents chanting “Lock her up!”
“This is exactly the rhetoric that has put me, my family, and other government officials’ lives in danger while we try to save the lives of our fellow Americans. It needs to stop,” she tweeted.
Governor Whitmer was referring to a plot by radicals to kidnap the governor and turn her over in WI to be tried for treason. There is no evidence that any of the men involved in the plot are supporters of Trump, but there is evidence that one of the men despised President Trump and another was a BLM supporter. Whitmer ignored that the evidence that none of the members of the alleged plot were aligned with Trump and tried to blame his “rhetoric” for the plot against her during her press conference. She tried her baseless accusation again tonight with this tweet:

We responded to Whitmer’s tweet, reminding her that she intentionally dumped COVID positive patients into nursing homes with some of our most vulnerable citizens and that MI residents have every right to call for her to be “locked up”
“Lock her up!” was a chant started by citizens of YOUR state—-NOT Trump! Suggesting you are locked up for crimes you committed, like sending COVID positive patients into nursing homes, killing an untold number of innocent seniors, is not a threat, it’s a legitimate request! https://t.co/LLVK1wsvbS

We weren’t the only ones who responded to the nasty governor. This Twitter user called Whitmer “despicable,” adding “Thank God” that the “Supreme Court” ruled against her use of executive orders to “reign in your tyrannical power.”
You are despicable. Thank God for the Supreme Court of Michigan to rein in your tyrannical power. pic.twitter.com/spcymiGFpO
