Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is now feeling the heat. As the Great Lakes States’ Democratic demagogue sat down with Alexi McCammond for an “Axios on HBO” interview.
She claimed that thousands more in her state would have died without the lockdown. “I’m never going to apologize for the fact that because there was a vacuum of leadership at the federal level, we had to take action to save people here in Michigan.”
And expressed, “It has not come without a cost. I recognize that. I know a lot of people are stressed about the job they lost or the business that might not open. But there’s also over 5,000 families that are mourning the loss of a loved one. And I’m grateful that it’s not 8,000 or more. ”
Then speaking of rival Republican President Donald Trump she was wary. But said she does think carefully about her responses to him so they don’t jeopardize aid to Michigan — saying that “the worst night’s sleep that I’ve got in the last 10 weeks is when he has attacked me on Twitter.”
Plus added, “I don’t really care that it’s an attack on me, but I’m worried that it would, you know, feed into a decision not to help Michigan. And that’s all I’m asking for.”
Gov. Whitmer blamed politics for the pushback and protests against her orders “There is a lot of politics at play here, unfortunately,”she said to Fox News in May. “The protests are very political in nature instead of being focused on the stay-at-home order.”
“But I’ve been focused on doing my job, and I’m going to keep doing that and I’m not going to apologize about that,” Whitmer stressed. “I’m not changing the way I run this state because of some protests.”
As well as, “The vast majority of people in the state are doing the right thing. They take this seriously.” The governor also under fire lately for supposedly not following her own orders. Despite what is being relayed here, many people in the state are simply tired of her act.
