Michigan GOP says Whitmer vacationed to Florida during state’s COVID-19 surge, despite telling Michiganders to stay home and avoid travel

Moments ago, the Michigan GOP official Twitter account wrote:

BREAKING NEWS THREAD @GovWhitmer vacationed to Florida during Michigan’s COVID-19 surge, despite telling Michiganders to stay home and avoid travel.

Whitmer specifically targeted Florida in April 2 comments where she warned against travel to the sunshine state during Spring Break.

Whitmer has long advocated for onerous lockdowns, shutdowns and travel warnings that have destroyed small businesses, kept kids out of schools, ruined livelihoods, and led to record levels of drug and alchohol abuse – yet she refuses to make the same sacrifices

A number of Whitmer’s top staffers have also been caught secretly traveling to Florida and Alabama for vacation, revealing an administration-wide attitude that they were above the people they serve.

Whitmer went as far as to deny that there was a policy problem when asked about Michigan’s COVID surge, instead blaming it on a compliance problem – well, the problem apparently starts with her.

Whitmer’s COVID-19 response can be summed up as, “its rules for thee, but not for me.”
