    I’m glad to have as our Govenor !

    • @Richie Black I’m in Michigan too. Why the promise?

    • @Richie Black All Fox all the time, right?

    • @Richie Black I wanted to depart before the pompous moron was installed.
      I’d definitely like to depart, now, that the entire U.S. is a “$hit-hole country” ~ Coast to Coast!
      The trumbfuK, “Destructo Donny,” demolished the 🇺🇸 in under 4 years! Catching the entire Nation up to speed to RUST BELT CENTRAL’s 50 Year Decline. Both* sides have Off-$hored our ‘good’ Jobs since the ’80s. – As CEOs suK’d ever MORE of their Profits, and trumbino made the fabulouly wealthy even moreso.
      Thanks. I’d rather starve to death and FREEZE in Canada!

    • Richie Black – They’re being COVID compliant, and they’re more likely to catch it here than to already have it.

      I don’t think all the seniors that died in the nursing homes because of her policy (hint, same as NY) share your sentiments.

      repuke… that’s pretty good. I’ve been using Rebuttlican. Pronounced Re-Butt-Lick-Can with a longer annunciation on the “butt”. “GCQ” is cool too.

      Rick Snyder was a disaster. Schools dropped from 14th to 42nd, union busting, massive environmental contamination and obscene gerrymandering. Good riddance. Hope you are convicted.

    God Bless Big Gretch such a difference between Desantis, Abott.

    • @anonymusum that’s false and the numbers show it… cumou even had a ship and he still didn’t use it…china is to blame for this pandemic

    • Patty Millard | March 25, 2021 at 12:18 PM | Reply

      SO true! Super glad her nursing home policy was the same as Cuomo’s and not DeSantis’.

    • @b s C´mon – all governors were betrayed by #45. They had to get along with a pandemic that desperately needed a nationwide coordinated response. Result: Over 500.000 deaths and the first who is to blame is #45. After that we´re talking about DeSantis, Abbott and Newsom. Gretchen did a real good job in comparison.

      @Patty Millard Love the sarcasm

    • @Patty Millard Desantis is responsible for so many Floridian deaths with his lies and policies. He is a rotten guy.

    America’s best looking governor, methinks ….
    If not her then who ?

  9. Dr who on the wall lol and love to the right, omg getting the message fools. Disparate measures guys. Lol

  10. Time to speak up robert gordon tell us citizens what u know

  11. brilliantly said, ty both.

  12. Love it. Protest because we’re being shut down and forced to wear masks. Sue because didn’t shut down enough to protect nursing home residents. Pick a lane.

    • s  of course she sent them to nursing homes… they were already stocked staffed and equipped to handle it. What the GOP isnt saying is that the nursing home network designated multiple facilities (more often wings of facilities) as Covid quarantine facilities. They make it sound like she just tossed them into the general population….

    • And I did not get to see my mom 6 monthes b4 she died in one! We were visiting b4 that this is more about wreaking our culture than about covid.i see no one dropping dead in the streets!

    • She put young adults into the nursing homes with the elderly… you need to do some research

    • Michigan cannot go it alone, the whole of USA needs to shut down until the virus is eliminated and then be careful who they allow into the country.

      @Dean Smith that’s stupid viruses don’t disappear moron

  13. Nice Dr. Fauci pillow you got there.

  14. You mean shots in arms and the money in your pocket the money will be the same as before money in her pocket and nothing done for Michigan
