Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel pitched a royal hissy fit during an interview on CNN – behaving more like one of the squawking magpies on The View instead of a top government leader.
Nessell, a Democrat, was infuriated that President Trump did not wear a face mask during his visit to a Ford plant in Ypsilanti.
“The president is like a petulant child, who refuses to follow the rule, and I have to say, this is no joke,” she snarled.
Michigan’s Democrat governor issued an edict requiring “any individual able to medically tolerate a face covering must wear a covering over his or her nose and mouth—such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandana, or handkerchief—when in any enclosed public space.”
On a side note, Iran requires all women to wear a hijab while in public under penalty of the law.
In a way, Michigan’s face mask rule is the American version of a hijab.

WOLF BLITZER: This morning, right here on CNN, you said that if President Trump doesn’t wear a mask, he’ll be asked not to return to any unclosed facilities in your state. Is the president no longer welcome in Michigan?
DANA NESSEL: I will say speaking on behalf of my department and my office, that’s right. That’s exactly right. Today’s events were extremely disappointing, and yet totally predictable. I will say that, understanding of course that his own doctor, Dr. Fauci, recommends the wearing of masks in public and closed spaces. The CDC makes that recommendation and in Michigan, that is the law, and a court just upheld that hours ago. And even in Ford, it’s there own policy. The president is like a petulant child, who refuses to follow the rule, and I have to say, this is no joke.
She accused the president of not caring about the people of Michigan.
“I don’t care about you. I don’t care about your health. I don’t care about your safety. I don’t care about your welfare. I don’t care about anyone but myself,” she said.
Blitzer asked the attorney general if Ford would face any backlash.
“They permitted the president to be in publicly enclosed places in violation of the order. They knew exactly what the order was,” she said.
@realDonaldTrump‘s actions in Michigan today were extremely disappointing, and yet totally predictable. Even though you have a president who doesn’t care about you, you have a governor and attorney general who do. Watch my response on @CNN below. ⬇️pic.twitter.com/OQfJSc5S7T
