Michigan Gov. Whitmer Accused of Hypocrisy After Husband Reportedly Traveled to Have Boat Put In Water for Holiday Weekend

Michigan Gov. Whitmer Accused of Hypocrisy After Husband Reportedly Traveled to Have Boat Put In Water for Holiday Weekend

“I am the husband to the governor, will this make a difference?”

Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has become a household name due to her strict lockdown rules during the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. She urged people to stay away from northern Michigan if they do not reside in the area.

However, the owner of a docking company revealed that Whitmer’s husband Marc Mallory asked them to put out their family boat in the water before Memorial Day weekend…in northern Michigan.

Oh, Mallory also tried to use his wife’s position as governor to receive special treatment.

That woman in Michigan did not confirm the request, but she also did not deny it:

Whitmer spokeswoman Tiffany Brown refused to comment specifically on the matter, saying the administration wouldn’t address “every rumor that is spread online.”

She said in a statement: “Our practice is not to discuss the governor’s or her family’s personal calendar/schedules. And we’re not going to make it a practice of addressing every rumor that is spread online. There’s been a lot of wild misinformation spreading online attacking the governor and her family, and the threats of violence against her personally are downright dangerous.”

It’s not a rumor. NorthShore Dock LLC removed its post after it went viral and the media bogged down the company during a busy weekend.

Owner Tad Dowker wrote in the deleted post:

“This morning, I was out working when the office called me, there was a gentleman on hold who wanted his boat in the water before the weekend,” Dowker posted. “Being Memorial weekend and the fact that we started working three weeks late means there is no chance this is going to happen.”

“Well our office personnel had explained this to the man and he replied, ‘I am the husband to the governor, will this make a difference?'”

This is the second statement:

“After a long day of keeping crews running, adhering to the additional safety regulations that need to be in place to operate our small business and fielding calls from customers frustrated with our lagging installation schedule I was told the governor’s husband called asking for install availability,” the company posted. “Up until this point we, as a company, had no idea we installed their dock or boat.”

The statement said Mallory was respectful and understanding when the company couldn’t schedule the installation early.

Whitmer and her husband own a property in Elk Rapids, which is about 25 miles from Traverse City. They currently reside in Lansing, which is over 150 miles away.

In fact, Whitmer said on May 18 concerning northern Lower Michigan and the Upper Peninsula (emphasis mine):

“If you don’t live in these regions … think long and hard before you take a trip into them,” Whitmer said at the May 18 press conference.

“A small spike could put the hospital system in dire straits pretty quickly,” she added later. “That’s precisely why we’re asking everyone to continue doing their part. Don’t descend on Traverse City from all regions of the state.”

WAIT. There’s more. Remember how I said Whitmer did not deny or confirm the request? Well, look what the governor’s office did to Republican State Sen. Tom Barrett:

State Sen. Tom Barrett, R-Charlotte, wrote his own Facebook post on Friday, criticizing Mallory’s apparent request for the boat installation. The post was shared 500 times, Barrett said.

But the lawmaker said he eventually deleted it after the governor’s office reached out to the staff of Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, R-Clarklake, asking for the post to be removed and contending the comments were false.

Barrett, who looked into the situation further, said he now believes the governor’s office had made him an “unwilling” accessory in an attempted cover-up of the situation. The senator also mentioned that Whitmer had told other Michigan residents not to “descend” on Traverse City.

“Yet, what did her family try and do?” Barrett said.

“In the Army, we have a tradition that the leaders get in line for chow last behind everyone else in the unit,” he continued. “Here is the leader of our state. … Her family is trying to cut people in line.”

So is it false or true? Why would this company make up this story knowing they’d be thrust into the limelight?

Let’s see, one person is a very busy small businessman with absolutely no reason to make something like this up and the other is a wanna-be, attention grabbing, VP aspiring, politician who has every reason to lie (or have her people lie for her). Now you tell me who is telling the truth.

Difficult to believe. Wretched Gretchen, Wicked Witch of the North, Committed Leftist, aspiring for higher office, controlling Dem/Prog has her spouse name dropping for personal gain.

Yeah, it could happen.

    It’s hard to imagine such an admission but maybe he was desperate to get out on the lake…alone.

      Husband Whitmer:

      “Gretchen will never be VP, although she is more man than I’ll ever be!”

      Besides that she’s too White!!!!!!!

A small spike could put the hospital system in dire straits pretty quickly
No. It actually could not. This is the easy lie that shows it’s all about power.

I could believe it’s a joke on the part of her husband. If it weren’t her husband.

She now says it was “a joke”.

Just like the last couple months, amirite?

    There is a fairly solid line between making a joke and *being* a joke.

    Whitmer crossed that line long ago.

    Notice the totalitarian leftists always claim things are a “joke” or they were misunderstood, when their actions are called out and there is blowback from it.

    This woman and by extension her husband think they are royalty now and should be privileged and pampered.

    She thinks she is now some victim because her policies which she keeps pushing are angering people in her state, even to a point where fellow dem-unists are suing her. Aw, poor baby, she destroyed the state economy, pushed draconian measures, took full advantage of being a tyrant and wouldn’t listen to anything any other person had to say about her dictates. She is vile. She is a perfect picture of what the left truly are. Just look at her moves and Guano errr, Cuomo and you see very similar tyrants who grabbed powers they were not supposed to have. They not only are wrong about their political stances being for the benefit of anyone but themselves, they are what our Founders feared the most coming from our government. It is exactly why they worked to create a limiting document of government – to help stop tyrants like Whitmer and Cuomo.

Call a liberal a hypocrite is just like calling them a liberal.

A hypocrite? A sanctimonious hypocrite, a bigot.

    Plus she is racist.

    Only a Democrat racist would lock up all the black people of Michigan!

Whitmer trying to one up Biden’s faux pas

Man, that Bruce / Caitlyn Jenner look is devastating and can’t be unseen. Second coming of Big Mike?

Wonder if the cops will issue a statement – e.g., “The police will not enforce any executive / emergency order that the governor herself refuses to obey”.

Does she think it’s a joke that she forced Nursing Homes to take in Covid elderly (and refuse to publish the statistics on Nursing Homes deaths)?

Does she think it’s a joke that she has destroyed employment and small business throughout Michigan to make everyone suffer like they live in Detroit?

Does she think it’s a joke to close down Churches in Michigan?

We have one big joke here in Michigan – and it;s Wretched Wretchen.

A charge of hypocrisy has no effect on a leftist.
They either can not or refuse to see their double standards.
Leftists substitute emotions, feelings, egos and personalities with facts when they “debate” or “argue.” They remind me of toddlers, you can’t reason with them.

Every liberal with a bit of power has become a nazi.

Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Dallet argued for keeping Governor Evers’ “Safer at Home” order in place, but spent Memorial Day Weekend boating with friends in what would have been a violation of that order.
In her dissent, Dallet warned that “Wisconsinites will pay the price” for the Court lifting the order two weeks early. Two days before the order was set to expire, however, Dallet joined another family for a boating excursion on Big Cedar Lake. Naturally, they were unable to keep social distance on the small boat.

May her forehead explode.

What a corrupt monster.

Am I the only one who thinks that Leather and a Whip might be a good look for her?

    That would go right along with a Nazi uniform…..

    Does she have one already??????????


Accused? Guilty!

For some reason I thought her name was “Karen”. 😉

Well at least she isn’t bringing in anyone to do her hair.

She should be grateful that the company prevented the existence of any photos of her on her boat over the weekend.

Why hasn’t this witch been recalled?

Somebody missed a good chance to sink them in the middle of the lake and make them swim back to shore.
