Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer caught breaking her own COVID regulations again

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has apologized after blatantly violating her own state-mandated social distancing guidelines at a restaurant.

The Detroit Free Press reports Sunday that a photo circulated on social media shows Whitmer with a large group of unmasked people at an East Lansing bar and grill.

The photo, which shows Whitmer seated with about a dozen people, was posted on social media by one of the attendees, but later deleted.

In Michigan, Whitmer implemented a rule that you can only dine with 6 people max, with distances of six feet between tables. These regulations are still in place, and Michigan residents are quick to criticize Whitmer for her hypocritical attitude.

Whitmer said in a statement Sunday that she went with friends to the restaurant and as more people arrived, tables were pushed together. “She said: ”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.”

This is just the latest example of Democrat legislators breaking the rules they expect the rest of us to follow.
