Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer was forced to apologize after new photographic evidence emerged of her violating social distancing rules at a restaurant in her home state of Michigan.

As The Hill reports:


Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) said Sunday that because everyone attending the gathering at an East Lansing bar and restaurant was vaccinated, she hadn’t thought twice when servers pushed two tables together to accommodate the large number of guests.

“Throughout the pandemic, I’ve been committed to following public health protocols,” Whitmer said Sunday, according to the Detroit News. “Yesterday, I went with friends to a local restaurant. As more people arrived, the tables were pushed together. Because we were all vaccinated, we didn’t stop to think about it.”

“In retrospect, I should have thought about it. I am human. I made a mistake, and I apologize,” she added.

Whitmer in particular has battled Republicans in the state for months over COVID-19 restrictions, and the latest headlines related to her violation of her own orders is likely to only accelerate calls for Michigan’s restrictions to end.

Once again a high-profile Democrat has been shown to practice massive hypocrisy in regards to the very regulations that are demanding be imposed upon others.

The good people in Michigan will have the chance to get rid of their idiot Governor. Next year could be a turning point but if they re-elect this fool I have no sympathy for them.

This woman is nothing but a dictator. She will do what she wants regardless. Should have been recalled long ago. She and other politicians forget WHO they work for!!!!! Maybe is time to remind them……

You’ve got the general drift of how liberals operate. They’re quite adept at rallying factions to their ideology by giving our tax money to them for support, or fashioning legislation for their protection and advantages. They’re not authorized to do so, but they’ll have a vocal and militant coterie of dependents to redress anyone who points this out.

That was a “got caught” apology. It was for show only.
