Thursday evening, President Donald Trump once again tried to deflect blame about his tepid, halfhearted response to the COVID-19 pandemic by blaming the governors of some states as being the problem. But the governor of Michigan quickly set Trump straight when he went after her.

During a phone interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Trump whined that governor’s across the United States need to be “doing more,” though he failed to specify what exactly what he was referring to. He said most governor’s “have been fantastic,” but then proceeded to take potshots at some of them, according to HuffPost:

“’We’ve had a big problem with the young, a woman governor, you know who I’m talking about from Michigan,’ he told Sean Hannity of Fox News in a telephone interview. ‘We don’t like to see the complaints.’

“Michigan has one of fastest rates of growth in coronavirus infections, now approaching 3,000 confirmed cases and 60 deaths.”

The “young woman governor” from Michigan Trump was referring to is Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) who has requested that the president issue an emergency declaration for her state so she can have greater access to the supplies she needs to fight coronavirus.

While he was at it, Trump also told Hannity that Whitmer has “not been pleasant” and added that “all she does is sit there and blame the federal government.”

But Whitmer got the last word in the debate when she clapped back at the president via Twitter:

Whitmer noted that she gets along well with Vice President Mike Pence, making it clear that the real problem is none other than Trump himself:

The federal response to COVID-19 has been several days late and billions of dollars short. The blame for that falls squarely on President Trump, who is supposed to be the chief executive of the United States. Instead, he’s got endless excuses.
