Democrat Governor Loses Connection After Question About Hunter’s Trial

Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer claimed that she lost connection during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday when anchor Dana Bash asked her about the firearm-related criminal trial against President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

Before she was asked about Hunter’s case, Whitmer had a lot to say about former President Donald Trump and his hush money trial in Manhattan which led to a guilty verdict late last month.

“Under this democracy, no one’s above the law. Everyone is held into account. And this former president is now a convicted felon,” Whitmer said of Trump.

She went on to say that Trump “flouts the law and cheats and just got caught.”

Whitmer also accused Trump of coveting the White House to go after his enemies.

“Right now, we know that in this country there is a stark choice in front of us between a president who respects the rule of law and a former president who is a convicted felon who wants to use the implements of government to go after his enemies and is running on vengeance and grievance as his platform,” she stated, adding, “He is the standard bearer, unfortunately, for the Republican Party in this moment, and this is a high-stakes election.”

However, the governor somehow happened to lose connection to the interview when Bash asked her about Hunter’s trial in which he is charged with three felonies related to his purchase of a firearm about six years ago, including lying about his drug abuse on the federal background check and actual possession of the firearm as a drug abuser.

“Dana, are you there?” Whitmer stated, claiming to not hear Bash. The host ended the segment and continued the show.

Whitmer later joined again toward the end of the show. However, when she was asked about the president’s son’s charges again, she responded, “You know, I don’t know how to weigh in on that, Dana.”
