Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is now under fire after being caught telling a massive lie about job growth in her state.

As The Washington Free Beacon reports:


In a June 2 press release, Whitmer said she was “proud” to announce Michigan has “added nearly 25,000 auto jobs since I took office.” The Democrat roughly three weeks later repeated the claim, writing in a “mobility and electrification” fact sheet that she “is ensuring Michigan lives up to its legacy as the place that put the world on wheels by creating nearly 25,000 good-paying auto jobs.”

Bureau of Labor Statistics data, however, contradict that claim. Whitmer inherited 169,500 auto jobs when she became governor in January 2019, according to the agency. As of May 2022, that number is 166,700—a decrease of nearly 3,000 jobs.

Whitmer’s deceptive declaration shows how the Democrat is attempting to rebound on economic issues following her stringent stay-at-home orders, which shuttered local stores but deemed marijuana dispensaries, lottery ticket vendors, and big-box retailers “essential.” While Whitmer has touted leading the “best economic recovery in Michigan history,” a June WalletHub report ranked Michigan 46th in unemployment claim recovery.

Michigan Rising Action communications director Mary Drabik said Whitmer’s “gaslighting” on auto jobs is “not surprising.”

Whitmer is up for re-election in the state this November after previously enacting a pandemic era policy that saw Covid positive individuals placed in nursing homes with the elderly.

In most photos it seems like she stands with her arms like she’s wearing handcuffs. Is this 2nd nature? Does she have a history of handcuffs, in this life or a previous life? She just comes across as a career criminal.

How much longer will we tolerate the liberal dem bloodsucking, parasitical ticks?
There is only one answer to dealing with these life forms?
Talk and voting are not it.
