JFK Library Gives Whitmer ‘Profile in Courage’ Award

JFK Library Gives Whitmer ‘Profile in Courage’ Award

May 5, 2021

Astonishingly, the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation has given tyrannical Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer its “Profile in Courage” award for her draconian response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“It is my honor to accept this prestigious award on behalf of every Michigander who stepped up to help their family and community through the COVID-19 pandemic,” Whitmer said in a news release. By “stepped up to help their family and community,” she means “suffered unnecessarily and unwillingly.”

Ambassador Caroline Kennedy laughably claimed that Whitmer put her own life “at risk to keep others safe”: “While her leadership earned praise from many” — and condemnation from most, as unemployment soared during her pointless lockdowns in which she issued, among other tyrannical gestures, a mask mandate for two-year-olds — “she also faced sustained, vocal backlash over stay-at-home rules that remained in place as COVID-19 cases in Michigan continued to rise during the spring.”

The cases continued to rise because the destructive lockdowns were ineffective against COVID.

“She stayed focused on following the science and listening to public health experts to get the pandemic under control and start rebuilding Michigan’s economy,” the statement continued. For the left, “following the science” means following the politicized directives of officials like Dr. Fauci and the CDC whose clueless flailings changed with the wind.

Over the last several weeks, it was revealed that Whitmer and two of her top aides traveled to Florida and Alabama for vacations in defiance of her own orders for the rest of Michigan residents to not travel.
