Whitmer forced to apologize after being spotted breaking her own COVID-19 rules

It’s truly incredible that a vast majority of politicians who are caught violating COVID-19 ordinances and guidance tend to be Democrats. We’ve seen it time and time again over the course of the past year.

According to the Washington Examiner, the latest high-profile, “rules for thee and not for me” politician who was caught breaking the rules was Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), who was spotted recently at a local restaurant in clear violation of health department orders that were issued just days prior to her outing. 

What happened?

Whitmer and a group of people including her chief operation officer, Tricia Foster, decided to eat out at the East Lansing-based Landshark Bar & Grill. While that typically wouldn’t be a problem in states that allow Americans their God-given freedoms, in Michigan, it’s a different story.

That’s because the state’s Department of Health and Human Services issued a new order on May 15 which clearly stated that groups of more than six people are not allowed to sit together in a dining establishment, with each table in a restaurant required to be at least six feet apart from each other.

In a photo leaked to Breitbart, Whitmer and her party — which appeared to be at least 12 people in the photo — pushed two tables together and were packed in like sardines eating next to one another. Though it’s not required, nobody in the photo was seen donning a face mask, either.

The photo caused an immediate backlash from groups representing Michigan business owners, who have arguably suffered more than any other businesses in the country due to Whitmer’s extreme, completely unnecessary strict COVID-19 restrictions.

“Now Whitmer has once again completely disregarded her own rules. Whitmer orders rules she and her staff don’t follow themselves while Michiganders and businesses suffer. Whitmer must end her restrictions immediately,” Tori Sachs, executive director of Michigan Freedom Fund, told Breitbart.

Whitmer apologizes

The whiplash of criticism was so quick and fierce that it apparently forced Whitmer to acknowledge her mistakes, which she did in the form of a half-hearted apology in which she ironically claimed that she didn’t think what did was wrong because everyone in the group was vaccinated — as if that has made any difference to a majority of Democrats since the vaccine became available.

“Throughout the pandemic, I’ve been committed to following public health protocols,” Whitmer said in her statement. “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,” the governor added. “I made a mistake, and I apologize.”

The Democratic governor’s weak apology means virtually nothing, as she’s now a repeat offender of breaking her own rules. As you’ll recall, in March, Whitmer took a private jet flight to visit her father and returned to Michigan three days later, ignoring state guidance urging people not to travel.

It doesn’t seem fair that while small businesses in Michigan are either crushed financially or punished for breaking ridiculously strict rules, Whitmer is apparently free to break any rules that she wants, knowing that all that’s required afterward is a disingenuous apologetic statement.

  4. Whitmer is singing another one of her “I did them wrong” songs again. It seems to be the national anthem of the dems. If they would just stop with their controlling and rules and start governing as leaders maybe they’d earn some respect. But right now they are all dirt under the feet of their constituents and do not deserve their respect or their vote.

  5. Just like this site, she picks and chooses what SHE thinks is right, not common sense or swear by your Word and honor it.

  6. Sure all you have to do is apologize and everyone will forgive you….NOT But that is what the dems/liberals do all the time. They do what they want and if they get caught all they have to do is say “sorry” and all is forgiven. They are such hypocrites.
