Next time she’ll think twice before talking…
Gretchen Whitmer, the Michigan Democratic Governor, has recently faced backlash for her comparison of protests to her overreaching measures to World War II.
Whitmer was considered a rising Democratic star even being considered as vice president to Joe Biden, however, her popularity has plummeted for her extreme measures during the coronavirus outbreak.
Her responses include:
Michigan now bans lawn and landscaping services, motor boating and golf. Large stores can’t sell paint, furniture or garden equipment. People aren’t allowed to travel between residences, which blocks them from visiting second homes and hunting cabins. Long-distance drives that don’t meet a “critical” need, according to the governor’s definition, are prohibited.
She also stated, “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. They rolled up their sleeves, and they got to work.”
Which has caused people to retaliate. A columnist wrote, “In World War II Michigan didn’t have a dizzy fascist as the governor.”
She might have destroyed her whole reputation after saying her ridiculous comparison. Read the full story here.
