Trump Rallies “Lock Her Up” Chant Against Michigan Governor

Donald Trump held an in-person rally in Muskegon, Michigan, this weekend, just weeks after his bout with COVID-19. Trump won the state’s electoral votes in the 2016 presidential election and aims to do such again this year, despite now trailing behind Joe Biden by as many as nine points in polls.

A central point of agreement among the crowd during the rally’s start was a bevy of criticisms lobbed at state policies enforcing lockdowns to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The predominant face of opposition to Trump’s preferred hands-off approach in Michigan is Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Whitmer, a Democrat, is already in an uphill political environment, due to both state legislative chambers being controlled by Republicans.

Trump has been an adamant foe to her handling of COVID-19, routinely advocating for the reopening of the state, and celebrating the Michigan Supreme Court’s invalidation of her executive orders related to the virus.

He stated at the rally, “You gotta get your governor to open up your state, okay? And get your schools open. Get your school open. The schools have to be open, right?” A slow tide started in the crowd with the chant, “Lock her up”. 

As the chant grew louder, Trump laughed with acknowledgment, saying, “Lock ‘em all up”. The phrase hearkens back to his infamous demand for the jailing of Hillary Clinton during his 2016 presidential campaign.

The controversial attack against Michigan’s governor arises roughly a week after it was revealed that the FBI had arrested 13 alleged domestic terrorists for conspiring to kidnap and kill Governor Whitmer.

President Trump’s daughter-in-law and senior adviser to his re-election campaign, Lara Trump, took to CNN’s State of the Union to insist the president was just “having fun at a Trump rally”, and that “He wasn’t doing anything, I don’t think, to provoke people to threaten this woman at all”.

Governor Whitmer issued a stern rebuttal to the chant on NBC’s Meet the Press, saying, “It’s incredibly disturbing that the president of the United States, 10 days after a plot to kidnap, put me on trial and execute me — 10 days after that was uncovered — the president is at it again and inspiring and incentivizing and inciting this kind of domestic terrorism.”

Yung Miami Unveils Exciting “Yams” Era in a Dazzling Comeback Trail, Are You Ready for the Yams Revolution

The dynamic duo of City Girls, Yung Miami and JT, is gearing up for a remarkable transformation in 2024. While Yung Miami soared on the business front with her acclaimed podcast last year, the musical aspect faced a setback. Their album RAW didn’t quite hit the mark with sales, leaving fans and critics unimpressed. However, the tides are turning for JT and Yung Miami individually, especially with Yung Miami dropping the fire track “Sideways” over the weekend.

But that’s not all – Yung Miami is set to embrace a whole new era, and she teased it back in January with a cryptic tweet. “Welcome to the ‘Yams Era.’ I’m so excited for this era of my life; we’re about to have some FUN!!!” Fans are still decoding the meaning behind “Yams,” with some speculating it’s a play on how to pronounce Miami or exploring unique definitions on Urban Dictionary.

Regardless, Yung Miami seems to be fully embracing her roots and infusing it into everything she does. A month after hinting at this fresh approach, she dropped a tantalizing “Yams” trailer on Instagram. In the video, she discusses her comeback while showcasing glimpses of studio sessions and teasing a stylish ginger hairstyle. Yung Miami declared, “Welcome to the YAMs Era! The Yams Era is my Prime time! In the Yams, we do ginger hair…focus on ourselves…& get money! Yams is the new lingo… To my fans, The YAMS…this is the new us. Drop a 🍠 if you’re ready!”

Support poured in from fellow artists like JT, Saweetie, and more, flooding her comments with yam emojis and encouragement for this exciting new chapter.

Biodegradable urns come in various forms to suit different purposes and preferences. At Premium Urns, they offer an array of biodegradable options, each serving a unique role:

  1. Bio Scattering Urns: These urns are crafted from biodegradable materials such as cardboard and are designed for scattering ashes in natural settings like beaches or mountains. They provide a beautiful and eco-conscious way to release the ashes, allowing the remains to return to nature.
  2. Ground Burial Bio Cremation Urns: Designed for more traditional ground burials, these urns are made from biodegradable materials that can peacefully merge with the earth over time. They are an excellent choice for those who prefer a more conventional resting place for their loved ones.
  3. Water Burial Bio Cremation Urns: If the intention is to release ashes at sea, Premium Urns offers a specialized selection of water urns. These urns are crafted to gracefully submerge in deep ocean waters when released off the side of a boat. They ensure a serene and eco-friendly final voyage for your loved one.

Choosing the Right Biodegradable Urns

Selecting the right biodegradable urn is a thoughtful process, but you must consider the following factors while making your choice:

  1. Location: Think about where you wish to scatter or bury the ashes. The type of urn you choose should also align with the chosen location, whether it’s a beach, a mountaintop, the soil, or the sea.
  2. Material: Biodegradable urns are made from eco-friendly materials that will breakdown in their final environment. While choosing your material, make sure that it resonates with your environmental values.
  3. Purpose: Consider the intended purpose of the urn. If you plan to scatter the ashes, a scattering urn is ideal. If a traditional styleground burial is your preference, opt for a ground burial biodegradable urn.
