If we took you again one yr in the past, you’d bear in mind there was a debate on which governor dealt with the pandemic the worst. Despite what 60 Minutes instructed us, it was not Florida’s Ron DeSantis however a three-way race between New York’s Andrew Cuomo, California’s Gavin Newsom, and Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer. Because of Cuomo’s nursing house cover-up and Newsom ineptitude, Whitmer completed third, as in third-worst. Good for her.
Since lifting lockdowns, Whitmer has been quiet. And whereas she isn’t demanding Michiganders keep in their yards anymore, it seems not a lot has modified in her demeanor. Photos from Tuesday present that Whitmer is similar power-hungry, hypocritical elitist she was throughout her pressers final yr.
This week, Whitmer traveled to Washington, D.C. to satisfy with Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe. Last night time, individuals recorded movies of Whitmer at a Hotel Washington bar with out her masks.
Hotel Washington coverage states, “individuals should be wearing a mask at the bar when they are not actively eating or drinking.” In the meantime, Whitmer additionally broke Mayor Muriel Bowser’s indoor masks mandate. Remember, she will be able to do this. You can’t.
Whitmer’s timing can also be of observe, as residents in Benton Harbor, Mich., are coping with a contaminated water provide amid a lead pipe disaster. Though why ought to that cease Whitmer from partying?
See, somebody of Whitmer’s standing doesn’t have guidelines. She doesn’t want them. Hence why she has routinely violated her personal COVID insurance policies, for which she has since apologized.
That stated, hopefully, you adopted her instructions. Such as Whitmer’s notable mandate that threatened to take away an organization’s license for not complying along with her insurance policies. If they didn’t, the small-business house owners are “selfish” or one thing.
It’d be price exploring in the future whether or not all individuals given an arm of energy are this mediocre or if D.C. merely attracts this kind of individual.
