President Donald Trump was asked on Friday about the hundreds of protestors who poured into the Michigan state capitol building on Thursday, some of them legally carrying firearms, in a protest against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home order that they say is stifling the state’s economy, causing them economic hardship, and infringing on their individual liberty.
“The Governor of Michigan should give a little, and put out the fire,” Trump said in a reference to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. “These are very good people, but they are angry.”
He added: “They want their lives back again, safely! See them, talk to them.”
And immediately, the Left began flipping out over the president’s response.
