In Michigan, power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts liberally.
Such is the case of the state’s left-wing nut Attorney General, Dana Nessel.
Nessel made headlines late last week after she threatened to “take action” against a Detroit-area Ford facility because President Trump did not wear a face mask during a press event at the factory.
“If we know that he’s coming to our state and we know he’s not going to follow the law, I think we’re going to have to take action against any company or any facility that allows him inside those facilities and puts our workers at risk,” Nessel told CNN. “We just simply can’t afford it here in our state.”
Nessel says no one is above unconstitutional state orders, not even Ford Motor Co., not even the president of the United States. And the attorney general, part of the radical anti-Trump “resistance” movement from the get-go, really despises this president.
In a Twitter sparring match, Trump called Nessel, “The wacky do-nothing attorney general.” Nessel called Trump “petulant” and “ridiculous.”
Name-calling aside, Nessel exposed herself as power drunk, eager to use her position as Michigan’s top law enforcement official to threaten and intimidate a business. And Nessel, like the liberal attorney general in neighboring Wisconsin, has abandoned the constitution to defend the left-wing governor’s power grab.
She told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that she would have a “very serious conversation” with Ford officials. Ooh, look out Ford. The automaker should tell this overreaching twit to go pound sand.
It’s all politics for the political attorney general. She sent a “strongly worded letter to Trump” ahead of his visit insisting the president had a “legal” and “moral responsibility” to wear a mask. Give us a fricking break. Another political stunt in a season marked by a fatiguing amount of liberal political theater.
But this is the same politician who in 2017 cited the benefits of electing an attorney general without a penis.
“When you’re choosing Michigan’s next attorney general, ask yourself this: Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting? Is it the candidate who doesn’t have a penis?” Nessel said in a campaign ad.
Yes, she has endorsed handsy Joe Biden for president. No, she doesn’t see any problem with that. Why? Because Nessler is more about power than principles. She puts party and left-wing policies above constitutional rights.
She’s a political tool. Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
