Michigan’s tyrannical Democrat governor Gretchen Whitmer traveled to Florida one month ago for personal reasons, according to Breitbart News, prior to telling her constituents to avoid travel in order to keep the coronavirus under control.
Whitmer’s spokeswoman said the governor went on a “personal trip,” reportedly to visit her father Richard Whitmer, who has a home in Florida and is battling a chronic illness. This comes on the heels of the governor defending two of her top advisers visiting Florida and Alabama for spring break. “What directors do on their personal time is their business, so long as they are safe,” Whitmer said at the time.
But just days before one of her advisors left the state, Whitmer urged Michiganders to avoid spring break trips to Florida. “This is the time of year that snowbirds come home from Florida, where people are going on spring break, and all of these things can contribute to spread” of coronavirus, Whitmer stated without evidence.
