Gov. Gretchen Whitmer “never personally worried” about her safety since taking office in 2019, she said in a recent interview.

Yet, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said she worries about danger “everywhere I go” in an interview last year.

The conflicting comments are the latest example of how President Joe Biden’s campaign co-chair manipulates the narrative to her advantage, though even wildly liberal CNN is no longer taking the bait.

Just over a year ago, Whitmer discussed with Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? an alleged plot to kidnap her from her northern Michigan vacation home, framing the case as a result of former President Donald Trump’s criticism of her handling of the pandemic.

Adam Fox and Barry Croft Jr. were convicted of kidnapping conspiracy and conspiracy to possess weapons of mass destruction in August 2022, and both are now appealing those convictions citing omitted evidence they claim shows FBI agents entrapped them.

Whitmer told Wallace last year she still feared for her family’s safety two years after the alleged scheme, for which she blamed Trump.

“I think about (being in danger) everywhere I go,” Whitmer said, according to People. “The former president made me a target and threw a lot of gas on the fire and it has continued to burn. And I think about it everywhere I go.”

“There are times when I’m in public – and I’ve got the greatest state police detail in the world – but there are big crowds sometimes, and it does cross my mind,” she said.

Late last month, Big Gretch had something entirely different to say when questioned by Michigan Advance about pro-Hamas protestors targeting the homes of University of Michigan regents.

“I’ll say it’s very different being governor of the state,” she said. “I have got state police that are part of the detail that keep me and my family safe. And even with everything over the last six years, I’ve never personally worried about my safety.”

It’s certainly not the first time Whitmer has skewed the truth to fit her agenda. Michigan Advance noted in the same article that the governor misled the media about early reports she inked a seven-figure book deal that revolves largely around the alleged kidnapping plot.

Whitmer ignored the Advance’s reporter’s assertion she “tricked” her in regards to Big Gretch, Whitmer declined to share “tidbits” about the book, scheduled for release next month, ahead of its release.

“I don’t think there’s just anything that’s going to create a national firestorm,” Whitmer said.

More recently, Whitmer was confronted by CNN’s John Bergman about her comments on the Biden campaign trail that conflict with reality.

The governor, along with other Michigan Democrats, have repeatedly asserted former President Donald Trump is planning a national abortion ban if elected to a second term – a claim Trump himself debunked in a video months ago.

“He is absolutely front and center as on the road to an all-out national abortion ban,” Whitmer told Bergman. “And that’s why we’ve got to get Joe Biden elected this fall.”

The CNN host set the record straight.

“He says he’s not on the road to an all-out abortion ban, federal, because he said he wants to leave it up to the states, right? He said he would not support a federal ban,” Bergman countered. “I’m not arguing with him being responsible for the overturning of Roe v. Wade, but just on that specific question, he wants it left up to the states, he says.”

Trump laid out his position on abortion in an April video posted to Truth Social, stressing it’s “all about the will of the people.”

“My view is … the states will determine by vote or legislation or perhaps both, and whatever they decide must be the law of the land. In this case, the law of the state. Many states will be different, many will have a different number of weeks or some will have more conservative than others, and that’s what they will be. At the end of the day, this is all about the will of the people,” Trump said. “You must follow your heart or, in many cases, your religion or your faith. Do what’s right for your family and do what’s right for yourself … do what’s right for our country.”
