Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s troubles are multiplying after the dictatorial Democrat was caught violating her own COVID orders at a bar in East Lansing.
Whitmer stuck it to battered local businesses by not lifting her outdoor dining restrictions until after Memorial Day. This was a sucker punch to bars and restaurants on what is normally one of the busiest weekends of the year. Additionally, she was partying with a group of people including her chief operations officer at The Landshark Bar & Grill.
The group was not practicing social distancing and was well over the limit of six people sitting together, both violations of Whitmer’s draconian rules but as it has been well established with the Democrat tyrants, rules are for thee and not for me.
Breitbart News gets credit for the bust after the conservative website published a picture of the governor and her friends on Sunday. This resulted in another round of criticism of Whitmer’s hypocrisy and added to the considerable optics problems that she has in the year before her reelection campaign.

According to the Gatherings And Face Mask Order that was just issued by Whitmer on May 15:
b. Gatherings are prohibited at food service establishments, whether indoor or outdoor, unless:
- Consumption of food or beverages is permitted only in a designated dining area where patrons are seated, groups of patrons are separated by at least 6 feet, no more than 6 patrons are seated together (at a table, booth, or group of fixed seats), and groups of patrons do not intermingle
Neither Whitmer nor other members of her group were wearing masks.
Shortly after Breitbart’s direct hit on Whitmer, she and her staff flew into damage control mode with the governor apologizing in a statement released by her office.
“Throughout the pandemic, I’ve been committed to following public health protocols. Yesterday, I went with friends to a local restaurant. As more people arrived, the tables were pushed together. 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.” Said Whitmer.
Tempers of Michigan residents were already at a slow rolling boil over the 14 months of torment that has been inflicted on them by the totalitarian in the governor’s mansion. Additionally, the cruel prolonging of their misery by not lifting restrictions on dining until after the holiday. At this rate the pitchforks could soon be broken out.
It is the second time in recent months that the lockdown queen of Lansing was caught breaking her own rules. She was also busted when she flouted travel restrictions by flying to Florida for spring break. She was unable to keep the trip secret which caused her much embarrassment.

The Florida junket is also becoming a political problem for Whitmer. Questions about who paid for the trip on the private plane and whether there may have been a quid pro quo involved have surfaced.
Whitmer has also come under heavy fire for her orders to shut down a crucial oil pipeline, news that drew attention after the Biden administration’s failure to protect a critical piece of infrastructure. Fuel supplies to 13 mostly red states were interrupted when the Colonial Pipeline was hacked.
The political hits just keep coming for Whitmer but they are all self-inflicted.
