Gretchen Whitmer lifts restrictions on restaurant capacity after being caught violating her own rules

Gretchen Whitmer is apologizing to Michiganders after she was once again caught violating her own COVID rules. 

For once, it’s more than just words. After the Democratic governor was seen dining out and enjoying her life at a pizzeria — activities she has deemed off-limits to the masses — Whitmer is lifting restrictions on restaurant capacity, according to The Detroit News.

Whitmer caught ignoring restrictions

Starting June 1, restaurants no longer have to limit tables to six people, Whitmer’s health department announced Monday. The new rule comes after a mea culpa from Whitmer, who was caught violating the restriction at the Landshark in East Lansing on Saturday, but she insisted the change was made “well before the weekend.”

A Whitmer lackey made the fatal mistake of sharing a photo on social media, which the person quickly deleted, of Whitmer with about a dozen people, no mask, no “social distancing.”

“Throughout the pandemic, I’ve been committed to following public health protocols,” Whitmer began. (Hah!) She went on, “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.”

Whitmer won’t lift fines on restaurants

Despite Whitmer’s assertion that she has been “committed” to following her own arbitrary rules, this isn’t the first time she has been caught holding herself to a different standard.

Whitmer has come under fire for traveling to Florida in March on a private jet, even as she told Michigan residents to avoid traveling.

This all has critics like the Michigan Freedom Fund demanding an end to remaining restrictions, and relief for business owners who have been hit with draconian fines. But the governor dismissed questions Monday about whether she would penalize the Landshark or lift fines on other restaurants.

Double standard

She only said she has focused on punishing businesses that “have flouted and put people’s safety at risk” and not those that “are trying to do the right thing” — which apparently is code language for restaurants that Whitmer personally likes.

Whitmer said that she doesn’t have much to add other than that the Landshark has “pretty good pizza.”

One wonders if Marlena Pavlos-Hackney, a pizzeria owner who spent four days in jail and had to pay a $15,000 fine under Whitmer’s regime, would find that comment amusing. The Landshark, meanwhile, received only a slap on the wrist after a “conversation” with the local health department.

Whitmer didn’t do anything wrong by going out to eat, of course, but she is a hypocrite for treating residents who want to do the same — and honest business owners who are just trying to get by — like criminals. She has done enough damage, and the best thing she could do for her state is resign. But first, end those bogus restrictions.
