Michigan is a State that Donald Trump thinks he can win in 2020, but, as usual, he got that wrong.
He won it in 2016, flipped it from blue to red, but only by 10,704 votes out of 4,548,382 total votes cast for the two major candidates.
Michigan has many far-right pro-gun extremists, and they have big plans to intimidate voters at the polls.
That’s why the Wolverine State’s Secretary of State, Democrat Jocelyn Benson, has issued an order forbidding the open carrying of guns at poliing places (https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/16/politics/michigan-bans-open-carry-of-guns-at-polling-sites/index.html).
All this, after Trump encouraged the kidnapping of Michigan’s Governor, Democrat Gretchen Whitmer (https://www.cnn.com/2020/10/16/politics/joe-biden-trump-whitmer-kidnapping-plot/index.html).
Not only that, but Republican judges in Michigan won’t allow an extension for the receipt of absentee ballots after Election Day (https://www.politico.com/news/2020/10/16/michigan-court-stops-2-week-absentee-ballot-extension-429998).
Naturally, associate solitary reporter Emily Munson, a charismatic gun opponent, was on hand to report to us that Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s top gun, was discovered hiding outside Benson’s office. Alert as always, Munson immediately texted Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, also a Democrat, and Nessel wasted no time at all texting Michigan State Police Director Joseph Gasper, who promptly shackled LaPierre to several burly colleagues. In the process, Gasper confiscated LaPierre’s enormous cache of assault weapons. “You shouldn’t be treating those AK-47s like toys,” Gasper told LaPierre as he led him away.
But then Trump told Attorney General William Barr to send a SWAT Team to Lansing to spring LaPierre, his close personal friend.
Outside the State Capitol, CNN has posted more than one hundred camera people and reporters to keep us updated on all the drama, on this typically boring day.
