President Donald Trump told Michigan State Representative Kate Whitsett, D, whose fellow Democratic state lawmakers are moving to censure her for thanking the President for touting hydroxychloroquine, a drug she hails for her recovery from COVID-19, that she “should join the Republican Party”, in a Tweet posted Thursday night.

“Disgraceful. Should join the Republican Party,” President Trump wrote.

Earlier on Thursday, Whitsett shared her thoughts on her colleagues’ move in an exclusive video for Fox News’ “Ingraham Angle.”

She said, “Today I got the news that I will be censured by the 13th Congressional district just for simply thanking the President of the United States for taking care of me and ensuring that I had the quality health care that I needed with hydroxychloroquine. A simple thank you has gotten me censured. Can you believe that?”

Whitsett added, “I thought I had first amendment rights, but I guess I don’t. The Democratic party is showing me that I don’t”

Michigan’s 13th Congressional District Democratic Party Organization plans to hold their vote on Saturday using Zoom videoconferencing, The Detroit News reported.

“At the end of the day, we have political systems,” said Jonathan Kinloch, chairman of the organization. “We have political parties, and political parties exist for a reason.

If passed, censuring Whitsett would mean she will not receive the group’s endorsement in the next election and she will be barred from participating in the group for the next two election cycles, according to the news site.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
