Hypocritical Michigan Gov. Breaks Own Social Distancing Orders to Protest

In Brief:

Michigan’s Democratic governor has imposed strict orders on her constituents – orders she doesn’t feel the need to follow herself.

The Background:

Fox2Detroit reports:

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer participated in a Unity March in Highland Park on Thursday where it was not possible to social distance despite her executive order that residents maintain 6 feet to prevent the spread of COVID-19. She said she did that because it was important to show support from her office to the cause.

On Thursday, Gov. Whitmer marched alongside Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and hundreds of others at the Unity March in Highland Park. Standing shoulder to shoulder, Gov. Whitmer marched to honor George Floyd alongside members of the clergy and police officers.

Why It Matters:

Classic example of leftist “do as I say, not as I do.”

Notable Quotes:

"We couldn't always observe six feet apart but we were wearing masks the whole time. We never shook hands, didn't high five or hug the way that we usually greet on and other but I thought that it was an important moment to show my support and show a unified leadership out of the executive office of the governor."
