Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, that woman from Michigan, is lobbying hard to be Joe Biden’s VP, and he has nothing but praise for her in this video clip. Maybe, though, he could have dinged her a couple of points for the failure of the Edenville Dam recently, which he seemed to think he could pin on President Trump. But as ClickOnDetroit reports, a complaint by residents filing a lawsuit alleges that, “For decades, federal regulators had demanded changes to the design of the Edenville Dam to improve its ability to withstand flooding, and federal regulators had warned since at least 1993 that the dam failed to meet safety requirements.”
So, sure, blame Trump.

This is false.
Feds decertified the dam in 2018…under Trump.
The onus to regulate then fell on MI, which under Snyder and Whitmer failed. Then, to compound matters, the Michigan AG forced the owners to RAISE the water levels last month to save some mussels. #factcheck? https://t.co/OUrZocOrYg

Which idiot AG told the dam owners to keep it filled HIGH to protect mussels? The one who told Trump he was not welcome? Must be a DEMOCRAT.

The idiot AG sued the dam owner last month, because they wanted to lower the water level, She was trying to save the Fresh water mussels.

It was the administration of the governor that sued to ADD more water to the lake. Gretch the Wretch is at fault. https://t.co/9tQp6pJigy

Joe Biden lies like a rug!
Boyce Hydro has been in battles w/ Michigan officials for a long time regarding water issues.
Boyce was warning the gov to lower the lake levels, but they refused claiming they needed to save the mussles.
It will all come out in court, watch and see.

We’ll expect that Twitter fact-check any minute now.
Joe Biden — who calls voters damn liars and challenges them to pushup contests — dings Donald Trump for ‘having trouble controlling his own emotions’ https://t.co/sHqmJtE8kl
