That would be you, Sparky

This filthy man

President Donald Trump continued his attacks on Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Thursday, calling the Democratic lawmaker a “dictator” as authorities announced charges against a 14th suspect in the thwarted plot to kidnap her and violently overthrow the government.

“Michigan, she has to open up. [Whitmer] wants to be a dictator in Michigan and the people can’t stand her,” Trump said Thursday in a FOX Business interview. Blasting Whitmer’s COVID-19 policies, he insisted people “want to get back to work.”

Do they also want to catch the virus?

The president has repeatedly attacked Whitmer even after authorities announced last week charges against more than a dozen individuals who allegedly conspired to kidnap the state leader and put her on trial for “treason” in a “secure location” in Wisconsin.

He’s a filthy human being.

On Tuesday, FBI Special Agent Richard Trask revealed that the men facing federal charges also discussed “taking out” Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam during a June meeting in Ohio. During the meeting, the group discussed their outrage at the two Democratic governors’ decisions to lock down their states and discussed ways they could take matters into their own hands.

“They discussed possible targets, taking a sitting governor, specifically issues with the governor of Michigan and Virginia based on the lockdown orders,” Trask said, adding that the meeting brought together militias from at least four states.

On Thursday, Northam condemned Trump’s rhetoric, which he said is “emboldening” white supremacists.

Whitmer also addressed Trump’s rhetoric last week, after the charges were announced.

“When our leaders speak, their words matter. They carry weight. When our leaders meet with, encourage, fraternize with domestic terrorists, they legitimize their actions and they are complicit. When they stoke and contribute to hate speech, they are complicit,” Whitmer said. “Hatred, bigotry, and violence have no place in the great state of Michigan.”

Trump was quick to respond to Whitmer’s criticism on Oct. 8, firing off a series of rage-filled tweets criticizing the Michigan official’s tenure in office and her decision to lock down the state to combat the pandemic.

What an adult, responsible, reasonable, generous way to respond.

I had to find them, which meant hitting the end key a lot because he tweets so frenetically.

Not his worst ever, but plenty bad enough. Petulant selfish narcissistic little toad.

Whitmer was shocked by it.

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer told NBC News she was “shocked” by President Donald Trump’s “appalling” response to her after federal officials revealed they had thwarted a plot to kidnap her around the November election.

“I was shocked to see that response,” Whitmer said. “I think this was a moment where I heard from a lot of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, my fellow governors, Republican and Democrat, reached out to say, ‘Are you OK? How’s your family?'”

“That’s what decent people do. And unfortunately, that was not the response at the White House,” she said.

Because Trump is a terrible mean little lump of flesh. There’s nothing good about him, nothing redeeming, nothing worth a second of anyone’s time. He’s a pure waste of resources.
