Whitmer Apologizes for Breaking Her Own COVID Protocols
Whitmer is the queen of “rules for thee, but not for me.”
Man, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer abides by the whole “rules for thee, but not for me” saying, doesn’t she?
First, Whitmer breaks her strict COVID protocols with a trip to Florida. Now, she gets caught at an outing with friends at a bar with over a dozen people.
Breitbart News published a picture of Whitmer and a group of friends at a bar in East Lansing. No one has a mask and they pushed the tables together.

Author Kyle Olson noted the gathering broke Whitmer’s COVID rules:
The group shot of 13 individuals appeared to violate the governor’s restaurant capacity order issued May 15 on “gathering limitations for entertainment establishments, recreational establishments, and food service establishments”:
b. Gatherings are prohibited at food service establishments, whether indoor or outdoor, unless:
- Consumption of food or beverages is permitted only in a designated dining area where patrons are seated, groups of patrons are separated by at least 6 feet, no more than 6 patrons are seated together (at a table, booth, or group of fixed seats), and groups of patrons do not intermingle
While Whitmer’s group did not wear masks, a bouncer at the Landshark — a dive bar in the college town — could be seen with his face covered.
Whitmer and her group of friends have the COVID vaccination, which means they have protection from the virus. That fact means the picture Breitbart News published should not be a problem.
But it is a problem because Whitmer and her fellow supposed science-based Democrats refuse to publicly accept the vaccine facts because it means they have to relinquish their power.
Whitmer made the picture a problem when she instilled some of the worst COVID rules in the country. Whitmer did this to herself.
Do you accept her apology? I doubt it:
“Throughout the pandemic, I’ve been committed to following public health protocols,” Whitmer said Sunday in a statement. “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.”
The outing is the second time Whitmer violated her own rules. In March, she flew to Florida on a private plane to take care of her father.
Then Whitmer used her father as a shield against the criticism even though she railed against Florida and urged people not to travel:
Whitmer has faced a wave of criticism in recent weeks after taking a private flight to visit her father, Richard, in Florida, in March. A nonprofit organization tied to Whitmer’s administration paid $27,521 to charter the flight that carried her to visit her dad but Whitmer paid $855 for a seat.
The governor said she cooked and cleaned for her father, who is facing a chronic illness, while on the trip.
“For anyone to be surprised that I have a family member who’s been having a lot of health issues that I showed up to check in … they’re obviously not paying attention to who I am or what I do,” Whitmer said.
And how many people from Michigan didn’t visit their chronically ill family members because of your stupid policies, ma’am?
These people make me vomit. They make me seriously ill. You voted for her, Michigan. Have fun.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
“Do as I say, not as I do”. The leftist way. I’d say she should be ashamed, but she is incapable of shame like most of the amoral left.
I would say it’s protest time, but they would be infiltrated and used against us.
Time for Alinsky’s fourth rule.
Actually, she just put that bar in a rough position. MI-HHS, which Whitmer uses as her enforcer since the House and Senate legislators took her to court an stripped her or her Covid powers, now has to slap the bar with a huge fine for not properly following their draconian rules. The Michigan Covid website takes great pride in reporting all of the other businesses that have been fined for not following the Gestapo edicts.
Actually, I find it hard to believe Whitmer has any friends at all???
Every Michigander should follow the Michigan CoVid website and raise H, E, double hockey sticks until the bar is fined and Whitmer is charged with public affray!
But no apology for imposing her tyranny on everyone else,
Only one thing makes a Democrat apologize, poll numbers going south.
In a better time that woman’s face or name will never be seen nor heard of, again..
She is and has the very countenance of cultivated evil.
So Governor Witchmer decides the rules she imposes on the people of her state don’t apply to her or her cronies. Then, when she gets caught in her hypocrisy, she acts surprised that anyone would take exception to what she did, issues a pro forma apology that no one believes is sincere, then goes out and starts all over.
Some animals are more equal than others.
Translation: Sorry I got caught. Again. I need to do a better job plugging up the disloyal leaks in my petty dictatorship. I can guarantee some heads will roll over this one.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer seems to be on a self-destructive run.
Wrong Neo, while Democrats are not immune to COVID-19, they are immune from the consequences of duplicity and hypocrisy.. They were vaccinated by the media years ago.
Right. She’s no more on a ‘destructive run’ than she is acting ‘normal’ for her ilk.
Hillary Clinton’s immunity for high crimes and treason has emboldened them all.
We have two people to thank for where we are today: William Barr and Jeff Sessions.
“Because we were all vaccinated, we didn’t stop to think about it.”
That’s because she’s been ignoring her own restrictions all along. Everyone else who has been following them for a year – under fear of being punished – will at least pause and think how nice it is to finally not have to wear a mask/stay 6′ apart.
She needs to be forced by her public to come out and state without reservation that either the CDC is right and vaccinated people can go maskless (of course they don’t recommend it indoors yet) or she needs to stand up and say “I’m in charge of this state and what I say goes whether you citizens like it or not!!”
Did you Michiganders ever hear of California? They are in the process of relieving themselves of their self-righteous butt-hole. Think about it folks!!
Her Majesty should take note that her decrees apply even to herself.
Look who the public servants are now! You are Michiganders, you voted for your Queen! Idiots.
I didn’t vote for her or any other Dem….I’m a red grain of sand on a blue beach so it doesn’t usually make a difference. I would, however, ‘take on’ her sign language lady (you know the one). That’d be hilarious what with her arms flailing around the whole time…bwahahahaha!
F U I did not vote for that Condescending Underhanded Narcissistic Tyrant!
Wow, the Landshark? They used to have this drink that was a big bowl of different liquors and little gummy sharks….A couple of those and you’d come out of it the next day a father/mother or sitting in the corner of a running shower crying…or both. It’s right off of East Grand River and underground which is probably why they picked it….so they could hide…
All animals are created equal.
Some (like the pigs) are more equal than others.
How is MIchigan so collectively dumb as to continue to vote this woman into office?
Oh, yeah: “voting machines.”
Believe it or not, the early polls show her beating the repubs in the election next year. She successfully scared all the democrats about how they’d die from the wuflu if they didn’t do what she demanded. Probably took a page out of the UK’s hand book of authoritarian induced panic.
Government Scientific Advisors Admit Using “Totalitarian” Fear Tactics To Control People During Pandemic, Report
Scientists in the UK working as advisors for the government have expressed regret for using what they now admit to be “unethical” and “totalitarian” methods of instilling fear in the population in order to control behaviour during the pandemic, according to a report.
The report quotes a briefing from March 2020, as the first lockdown was decreed, that stated the government should drastically increase “the perceived level of personal threat” that the virus poses because “a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened”.
One scientist with the SPI-B admits that “In March  the Government was very worried about compliance and they thought people wouldn’t want to be locked down. There were discussions about fear being needed to encourage compliance, and decisions were made about how to ramp up the fear.”
“But it is a problem because Whitmer and her fellow supposed science-based Democrats refuse to publicly accept the vaccine facts because it means they have to relinquish their power”
There is another, not incompatible, interpretation: if they say the vaccines aren’t effective, perhaps we should believe them. That implies that the reduction of cases would have happened anyway (as was the trend before the vaccines), or the reduction is statistical manipulation. We already have evidence of statistical manipulation, since the CDC has ordered vaccinated individuals to be tested at 28 PCR amplification cycles or less, while covid PCR tests are normally conducted at 35 or more cycles.
I laugh. The DemonRAT voters of Michigan, are getting what they deserve. When imbeciles elect scum, they get what they deserve.
Please note that she did NOT promise to follow her own rules from now on, or say that she wouldn’t even jut try not to do it again….
She takes full responsibility. Just like Janet Reno did for Waco.
No one’s mentioned this, but how is: Apology not accepted.
Her biggest “mistake” is not immediately rescinding those asinine rules along with apology for not having done so prior to her trip to Florida. The apology as given is worthless.
Have you ever seen a democrat?
Mistake? Not likely.
She forgot? How many people were penalized when they forgot to follow her Gestapo demands?
Voters in Michigan need to throw her out along with any of her allies in state government.
Why is she apologizing? She doesn’t believe in those protocols she just imposed them on the peasants as a tyrant.
Why not instead of apologizing for living her life she just allowed other people to live theirs?
