Once again proving that she can’t handle tough situations Governor Whitmer of Michigan is blaming Michiganders instead of herself.
Whitmer is probably one of the most unpopular governors over her stay-at-home order that is stricter than New York City’s. Even in California, New York, and Pennsylvania Governors are trying to open up boat marinas, encourage outdoor activities, and keep business open so people can work on their yard.
But, not in Michigan, all of that is illegal. A person cannot even buy seeds to plant a garden, hell if you go to check up on your neighbor you technically could be cited by police.
Instead of easing restrictions and following suit like other governors she throws a hissy fit and scolds the people of her state.
“President Trump called this a war, and it is exactly that. Let’s act like it,” Whitmer said.
“In World War II, there weren’t people lining up at the Capitol to protest the fact that they had to drop everything they were doing and build planes or tanks, or to ration food,” she said, taking a dig at the demonstrators.
“They rolled up their sleeves, and they got to work. We were all in this together, and it wasn’t indefinite. It was until we had beaten the enemy,” she continued.
“No state shined more in those days than the state of Michigan. We are called to act again. It is our time to shine, to put aside our political differences, to come together and defeat our common enemy,” Whitmer added.

The woman cannot take the fact that some people would dare defy her.
Radio host Steve Gruber, who attended the protest last week in Lansing noted that Michigan over the past few years was moving “blue” again but, Whitmer has “put Michigan back in Donald Trump’s column.”
“Look at this,” he said of the protest. “You think these people aren’t going to vote? These people are all going to vote. Every one of these people. Every direction you look here. They’re all going to vote. Every one of them.”
