The Michigan GOP’s new advertisement about Gretchen Whitmer completely obliterated and unraveled her hypocrisy. The commercial highlighted the government’s insincerity about the rules they implemented during this pandemic.
FOX News reporter Tucker Carlson brutally reacted to the governor’s travel scandal on his program. He said, “The first thing you should know about Michigan Governor Whitmer. There are a lot of things you should know, but the very first is she takes the coronavirus very seriously.”
He went on, reporting the list of regulations Whitmer implemented to combat the spread of the COVID-19.
“It’s dangerous to go to Florida, everyone has to do their part. Well, not long after that, we learned that Gretchen Whitmer had gone to Florida earlier this year. Now, we don’t know how long she was in Florida. We don’t know where in Florida she went. No one can find out because her office is citing, ‘security concerns.’” Carlson stated.
A spokesperson said in a statement that Whitmer traveled out of state to visit her sick father in Florida.
“In the past six months, she has left the state three times, once for the inauguration, once to assist her elderly father who is battling a chronic illness, and once to visit with Michigan’s National Guard troops.” The statement also included that her father is fully vaccinated.
The spokesperson stressed that the trip was fully paid by her and not the taxpayers.
But, the point is, it doesn’t matter who paid for the trip to Florida. The people are mad at Whitmer because it’s clear that they’re not abiding by their own rules.
