Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer refused to answer a reporter’s question asking who paid for the private jet she used to visit her father in Florida during her statewide travel advisories.

Whitmer was asked on Thursday by WWTV reporter Eric Lloyd for a response to the recent report by journalist Charlie LeDuff in Deadline Detroit that the governor approached wealthy businessmen in Detroit to use the private plane they share.

The embattled governor — who is facing down both the Florida travel scandal and the COVID-19 nursing home scandal in her state — declined to answer Lloyd’s question.

“Listen, I’ve said everything I’m going to say about my trip to go check on my father,” Whitmer said. “It was a quick trip, there was an important family reason for doing it, and I’ve got nothing to add.”

When pressed by Lloyd on why the governor and her office were being “very secretive” about the trip, Whitmer said that her office doesn’t discuss her travel plans.

“We don’t discuss my travel. I have received an incredible number of death threats over the last year and a half,” Whitmer said. “There are a lot of reasons that we don’t discuss how I travel, when I travel, and that is all I’m going to say at this point.”

The governor shot down a third question by the reporter as to the dates of her trip, responding, “I told you I’ve said everything I’m going to say about that right now.”

Whitmer’s office did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
