Whitmer appears to violate her own “social distancing” advice, marches with tightly packed group of protesters

According to Jenn Schanz, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer led a group of marchers in Detroit chanting “hands up, don’t shoot!”


However, Whitmer was clearly not following her own “social distancing” advice.

Per Breitbart, on Thursday morning, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer told protesters to wear a mask and stay six feet apart. Later in the day, she appeared to violate her own rules.

“I encourage everyone who is protesting, if you are out demonstrating or out congregating at all, please wear a mask and please try to stay six feet away from others,” she said on Mojo In The Morning.

Whitmer, who is angling to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, participated in a protest in downtown Detroit over the death of George Floyd.

She marched along as the closely packed large group chanted, “Hands up, don’t shoot,” and “This is what democracy looks like.”

Chris Meagher, Whitmer’s press consultant, shared a photo on Twitter of the governor in a large throng of people, who were also violating her orders.
