DETROIT, MICHIGAN— Democrat State Representative Karen Whitsett has come under fire from her own party. She recently was suffering from symptoms of the coronavirus and had to go to urgent care.
The doctor prescribed an antibiotic and hydroxychlorquine, which she claims saved her life.
President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence recently had a COVID-19 survivors meeting at the White House where Whitsett attended. She thanked the President ‘for everything he had done’.
This did not sit well with Jonathan C. Kinloch who is the 3rd Vice Chair for MI’s Democratic Party and wants to censure her. Via Detroit News.com,
“The group, as first reported by Gongwer News Service, plans to vote Saturday via Zoom on a resolution to censure Whitsett, a first-term lawmaker representing the 9th Michigan House District.
“The admonition means she will not get the group’s endorsement for this year nor will she be able to engage in the group’s activities for the next two election cycles.
“At the end of the day, we have political systems,” said Jonathan Kinloch, chairman of the organization. “We have political parties, and political parties exist for a reason.
“They do not belong to themselves,” Kinloch said of endorsed candidates and elected officials. “They belong to the members and precinct delegates of the Democratic Party.”
Upon hearing the news of what had happened, people came out in full force to show support for Whitsett on Twitter, like Donald Trump Jr. who tweeted,
“What a joke. Remember folks, the narrative can only be against Trump and if you break those rules the left will turn on their own. Democrats plan to censure lawmaker who credited Trump for COVID-19 recovery.”
Ronna McDaniel tweeted,
“State Rep. Whitsett nearly died from coronavirus, but because she dared to say something positive about @realDonaldTrump, Michigan Democrat party bosses are effectively kicking her out of the party. Absolutely appalling.”
“Thats what the left does! Its all about scare tactics , propaganda and silencing people. They are definitely the real deplorables”
President Trump tweeted,
“Disgraceful. Should join the Republican Party!”
