Just don't say, "damn" anymore. I takes away from your ladyness.— Kristin Peterson (@ladyinabag1) August 29, 2018
WHY, did Gretchen Whitmer have to curse in her add where she's running for Governor of the state of Michigan!!! She's said, "We've got to fix these DAMN roads"!!! She could have said horrible or terrible!!!— Stephen Paul Kettere (@PaulKettere) July 23, 2018
Whitmer is taking the Trump ideology that talking tough works. In the mean time, I have two daughters running around the house saying “damn this” and “damn that.” Thanks for being so courteous @gretchenwhitmer 😡— jkdanhof (@jkdanhof) August 3, 2018
Here’s my one and only political tweet for 2018...Gretchen Whitmer looks like she feels so BA when saying damn in the phrase “It’s time to fix the damn roads.” That is all.— Clay Cross (@ccross239) July 27, 2018
Dear Gretchen Whitmer: People who don't cuss think "damn" is awful. Those who do, just want you go for one of the big ones. Way to play the middle and tick everyone off.— Brent McNitt (@coachmcnitt) July 27, 2018
Whitmer on her “fix the damn roads” mantra: “I understand that some people might not appreciate the word damn, but the fact of the matter is, that’s how people across our state feel about the roads and talk about the roads”— Jonathan Oosting (@jonathanoosting) August 2, 2018

I'm voting for Gretchen Whitmer because she's easy on the eyes, has a potty mouth, several years of experience and she wants to fix the damn roads. Anyone from Michigan knows of the trouble we have with our roads! 🤣
