Michigan Gov. Whitmer appears to ignore own COVID regulations to attend Biden inauguration

Over the last year, many Americans have lost patience with economically-punishing and seemingly arbitrary coronavirus restrictions, especially as many public officials seem to follow them only when it’s convenient.

In just the latest example, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was caught ignoring her own rules to attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration last Wednesday, The Washington Free Beacon reported.

Whitmer ignores restrictions

Restaurateurs in Michigan are still getting whacked with heavy fines, but the state’s governor has shown little interest in being so restrained.

While her restrictions limit outdoor gatherings for her residents to just 25 people, the crowd in Washington was about 2,000 last week, according to the Free Beacon’s estimate.

Nevertheless, Whitmer claimed that she was following her guidelines, and remarkably, even said that she “can’t stand those people that have one rule for others and a different one for themselves,” demonstrating that she is at least self-aware to some extent.

Whitmer shared a photo from the scene outside the Capitol on Twitter. “Anyone who watched would have seen that we were spaced out, we were outside, and we were masked up,” Whitmer said. “I have been following the same directives I’ve asked everyone else to. I can’t stand those people that have one rule for others and a different one for themselves.”

Rules are for little people

In June, Whitmer was just one Democrat who joined crowds of Black Lives Matter protesters in solidarity, The Free Beacon noted, despite criticizing lockdown protesters in her state, who she compared to Nazis.

Republicans in Michigan say that they’re not surprised by Whitmer’s behavior at this point.

“Governor Whitmer has sadly been more focused on public relations and partisan politics instead of collaborating and making smart decisions to better help the people of Michigan,” Michigan state Sen. Aric Nesbitt told the Free Beacon.

Whitmer announced Friday that indoor dining in Michigan can resume in February amid a cascade of loosening restrictions that critics say appears suspicious.

“The science around this virus is settled, and if we can all wear masks and be very smart about congregating, and not do it unless it’s necessary, washing our hands, doing that social distancing, we will be in a strong position in a few weeks,” Whitmer said, according to The Detroit News.

  1. Of course she (Witmer) would loosen restrictions now. The elections are over. Maybe some real journalist will start investigating how much money was paid to these corrupt Democrat governors to keep the economy of their state closed. Time for people to take actions, start the petition to remove her from office. Remember it’s our country too. Stand up for America. Remove everyone of them who screwed their states over. She and her family had no problem breaking her rules for her state. Her ego trip should end.

  3. You are now going to see the propaganda machine of the Main Stream media in full reversal. The coming FAKE NEWS will include: The virus is now under control because of Biden’s work in distributing the vaccine. Biden did a great job in controlling the spreada of the virus. The CDC will report that deaths are going down, (they are no longer inflating the numbers). People died in car crashes with Covid in their system were marked down as Covid deaths.
    As so on. Many of the logistics that President Trump had in place to distribute the virus will be used by biden and he will be hailed by the media. Stop watching ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and reading newspapers that get their national news from The AP. The media is corrupt and does not practice the journalism is taught and practiced for 40 years in NYC.
