What gets Americans angry more than almost anything else?
And Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer seems to have just served it up in spades.
Whitmer enforced some of the most draconian lockdown rules in the country, and even her own Supreme Court overruled her.
Recently numbers have been trending downward in many states, but Michigan has been seeing a major spike.
So Whitmer blamed it on Florida. Florida!
She claimed that snowbirds were bringing it back from Florida as the weather warmed. And she had ordered her citizens to stay put.
Then the truth slipped out. Turns out she didn’t stay put. From the Daily Wire:
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer fired back at critics who are calling her hypocritical for traveling to Florida to visit her ailing father while instructing Michigan residents to avoid travel, particularly to the Sunshine State.
Speaking to The Washington Post’s podcast, she called the response “saddening,” and blasted reports that she’d spent time in Florida, although she confirmed that she did, indeed, leave Michigan…
Whitmer actually went to Florida, and returned, after ordering her own people not to? And blaming Florida for her surge?
Wow. Did she think this wouldn’t get out?
Her excuse is that she had good reason to see her ailing father, and she kept her trip short. But her orders to her citizens didn’t say there were certain reasons to break the rule.
But many Americans see through this charade—blaming your state’s problems on another state is laughable and immature.
But it’s what liberals tend to do. They rarely take responsibility for their own actions—even when they are breaking the rules themselves.
Maybe Michigan needs a new governor.
Do you think Gretchen Whitmer should be recalled?
- Michigan has been seeing a major surge, and Governor Whitmer blamed it on Florida.
- But Whitmer recently traveled to Florida herself to see her father.
- She tried to dismiss criticisms by saying she had good intentions.
