No, Lara. It’s OUR Department of Justice

From Politico:

At the president’s rally Saturday in Muskegon, Mich., after he demanded that Whitmer loosen her state’s coronavirus-related restrictions, attendees erupted into chants of “lock her up.”

The president did not attempt to dissuade the crowd, instead saying: “Lock them all up.”

Lara Trump sought to justify the calls from the president and his supporters Sunday, saying that “people are very frustrated” with Whitmer in Michigan and that “you’re hearing people’s frustration play out there at the Trump rally.”

She also said the president’s attack on Whitmer “has nothing to do with” her attempted kidnapping, and noted that “it was the president’s Department of Justice that actually thwarted” the plot against the governor.

Whitmer responded to Trump’s rally remarks in a tweet Saturday evening, writing that his rhetoric “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.”

The president has repeatedly assailed Whitmer’s handling of the coronavirus throughout the pandemic, even encouraging his supporters to “LIBERATE” Michigan in April.

  1. Lara also said that “Trump was just having fun” and Jake did a good job of putting her down for that statement. She’s as sick as her father-in-law if they can’t see the harm a president is doing to rally up hate towards Whitmer and other governors who are trying to protect people’s health. I live in Michigan and she has a lot of support for how she’s handling the virus-19. My God, those 13 arrested weren’t just talking smack about kidnapping her and killing her, they had details plans and had bought stuff to carry out the plans and he acts like it was no big deal!
