Whitmer Blasted After Calling Michigan AG Nessel and SOS Benson “The Best of the Best”

Several social media users were not impressed when Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer praised State Attorney General Dana Nessel and Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson “the best of the best.” Both have recently feuded with President Trump.

Whitmer wrote:

It feels like the perfect moment to remind @dananessel and @JocelynBenson how grateful I am for their dedication and hard work, and how proud I am to serve our state with them. These women from Michigan are the best of the best!

One Twitter user replied:

“The best traitors maybe. You sticking together is no surprise.

The State’s threat to not allow the @POTUS in Michigan should be viewed as an act of agression against the United States. It’s unacceptable.”

Another replied:

The enemies of our freedom, @GovWhitmer, @dananessel, & @JocelynBenson are clearly desperate for attention. These self-serving, special interest politicians only care about themselves. They should be doing their job rather than dividing. The people will not stand for this!

President Trump recently fired back at Michigan Attorney Dana Nessell who had characterized him as a “petulant child.”

Trump tweeted:

Do nothing A.G. of the Great State of Michigan, Dana Nessel, should not be taking her anger and stupidity out on Ford Motor – they might get upset with you and leave the state, like so many other companies have – until I came along and brought business back to Michigan. JOBS!

Meanwhile, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson has been pushing voting by mail and also feuding with Trump.

Benson shared the love with Whitmer, replying:

Back at you, Governor. Thank you for leading with strength, courage, and fighting to ensure every Michigander is healthy and safe. It’s an honor to serve with you.
