‘Failed attempt at humor,’ Michigan Gov. Whitmer says of husband’s attempt to move up boat queue
Gretchen Whitmer’s husband made typifies the ever souring relationship between her office and the Republican leadership in the legislature. Whitmer called it a poor attempt at humor -- and a top Republican said her staff lied. He jokingly asked if being married to me might move him up in the queue.”Sen. Tom Barrett put up a post detailing what he said Whitmer’s husband said last Friday. He said late that night he was called on by Whitmer’s staff to remove it because it wasn’t true. The boat drama continued to explode on social media over the weekend and Whitmer’s staff tried to brush it off.
