The Detroit Free Press reports that a “frustrated and nervous” Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is pushing schools to mandate students wear masks this fall.
“Today is a day that we have all been looking forward to, as we can safely get back to normal day-to-day activities and put this pandemic behind us,” the tyrannical Whitmer previously had said in a statement crowing about June 22 as the date she “put this pandemic behind us.”
But Whitmer told the Detroit Free Press just over a month later in a story published Sunday that Republicans were to blame for the prospect of a coronavirus variant spreading: “She feels the Republican-controlled Legislature is more concerned about defeating her and scoring political points than finding a consensus based in science.”
In October, when the Michigan Supreme Court ruled her executive orders were unconstitutional, she lashed out about “a slim majority Republican vote” and urged supporters to vote for candidates backed by the Democrats.
Whitmer is preparing to fight her predicted variant increase by “pleading with residents to wear masks, get tested and, most importantly, get vaccinated.”
“Whitmer wants schools to consider adopting mask mandates,” the paper said, which many school districts have already publicly rejected. The Free Press concluded that her words are “falling on deaf ears,” leaving Whitmer “frustrated and nervous for what lies ahead.”
