Whitmer reportedly told Biden to pick a woman of color instead of her

A Detroit TV station says Michigan’s governor took herself out of the running to be Joe Biden’s running mate in November.

Biden wanted to include her in the final mix, but Gretchen Whitmer said she didn’t want to be considered for the spot.

That’s according to WXYZ in Detroit, who report the Michigan Governor had caught the attention of Biden’s vetting team, as the governor of a crucial battleground state with an aggressive coronavirus response.

Whitmer withdrew from consideration after the second round of vetting that happened earlier this summer and recommended to Biden that he select a black woman for VP.

How can you possible be a black person in America and support these morons? August 13, 2020 at 8:07 am

I thought hiring someone based on color was illegal? OH, only if it is not a democratic politician…I forgot the rules and laws don’t apply to them. These people are so arrogant they show their racisim right in the open and people just accept it. WAKE UP PEOPLE. How can you possible be a black person in America and support these morons? How can you not see they are nothing but liars and will do whatever they can to create a racial divide to serve themselves…Joe Biden is the most openly racist idiot in DC. His VP candidate is right there with him. These are 100% self serving degenerates that have been in our government for 40 years and acomplished nothing but dividing people. Why would anyone vote for these anti-americans?

Hiring color over competence is absolutely racist, but I’m willing to let it slide this time because Whitmer is incompetent. Then again, so is Joe… and incontinent to boot!

Prob for the same reason you morons voted for Trump the self serving, racist, idiotic liar. Worst president in the history of the US and the stupidest.

If that’s the case why did they vote for that pos in the White House now 4 years ago. You have to be sick in the head to think nothing is wrong with him. He tells at least 50 lies a day if not more.

I doubt the story. She recently went to Delaware to meet with Biden. Was only there a few hours and returned to Michigan. If she did not want the VP slot she would not have met him in person. She could have said no on the phone.

Personally, I feel Biden was told who to pick as a VP, and that Whitmer was called to a meeting to tell her she was not selected and why and to keep her mouth shut about it. It wasn’t long ago this very VP was trashing Biden on public tv, and yet now she’s standing by his side as his choice. I thi k he was told by the democratic party who to put in that spot to be honest.
