She continued by giving advice for protesters to safely exercise their First Amendment rights, including to stay home, maintain social distancing and wear a mask outside.

“I promise you can call me a bitch from the safety of your couch. It’s called Twitter,” she said.

“If it’s going to be a woman, it might as well be ‘that woman,’” she said. 

The president has referred to Whitmer as “that woman from Michigan,” prompting the governor to wear a T-shirt with the phrase on it when she was interviewed for “The Daily Show" earlier this month.

Trump has accused Whitmer of taking her stay-at-home order too far as protesters have demonstrated against the order and called for the state’s economy to reopen. 

Michigan has documented at least 37,778 confirmed coronavirus cases and at least 3,315 fatalities. The state ranks seventh in total cases and third in deaths, The New York Times reported.
