Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer Gets Exposed for Lockdown Hypocrisy (Again!)

• by Brad Polumbo

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer made a name for herself early in the COVID-19 pandemic by enacting particularly harsh restrictions in her state and making full use of her expansive "emergency powers." But she now finds herself joining the long list of lockdown-happy politicians caught violating their own orders.

"Gov. Gretchen Whitmer apologized Sunday after a photo circulated of her at a Lansing bar violating Michigan health department orders by closely gathering unmasked with a dozen other people," Michigan Live reports. "No more than six people can gather together at indoor restaurants, and groups of customers must be six feet apart, according to the latest Michigan Department of Health and Human Services pandemic order."
