Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Insane Double-Standard When It Comes To Trump, Biden Rallies

(Liberty Bell) – If the Democrats didn’t have double-standards they’d have no standards at all.

The amazing thing is, they’ve been so brazenly hypocritical about when they’re concerned about COVID and when they aren’t over the summer, it’s as if they know it and don’t even care.

Democrat Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who went full-tyrant during lockdown but forsook her own lockdown orders to protest with Black Lives Matter, is applying the same degree of moral integrity to Trump vs. Biden rallies.

Of course, the Dems are in big trouble if Trump yet again wins this key rust belt, state which he no doubt will.

During a Tuesday appearance on CNN, Whitmer called a campaign rally scheduled for Thursday “distressing” because, of course, COVID.

Meanwhile, Biden’s Wednesday event, she declared, would be far safer as the organizers were “following the science.”

Give me a break!

“It’s distressing, to say the least,” Whitmer said of the Trump rally. “You know, we have been following the science here in Michigan. We have a mask mandate, we’ve got gathering rules to ensure that we don’t have super-spreader events, yet, we anticipate that he will be descending on this state, and perhaps encouraging people to come mask-less and come together in the ways that we’ve seen them happening across the country, and I think this is very distressing.”

“We’ve pushed our curve down. We’ve saved thousands of lives. We’ve gotten people back to work, and events like this threaten all that we’ve made and I would love to see the leader of our country embrace masks and encourage people to do the right thing,” Whitmer continued. “This is an economic crisis. This is a public health crisis. We’ve got to get serious about it and focus on getting this right.”

She later derided her own constituents who plan on attending Trump’s rally, claiming they will “take the lead” from the president, forsake masks, and “subject themselves to COVID-19.”

“The fact of the matter is we’ve been educating our public. People understand the science, they get it. The vast majority of people in the state are doing the right thing. I don’t doubt that there are people who will show up at that event and will take the lead from the man himself and drop their guard and could subject themselves to COVID-19,” she said.

For Trump’s part, he has encouraged Americans to wear masks, even calling it “patriotic” to do so.

Whitmer, naturally, praised Biden’s team as “scrupulously following the science.”

Yes, someone is definitely vying for a cabinet post. Sadly, she was a little too caucasian to be picked for VP, although she was on the list of possible candidates.

“The fact of the matter is that we’ve got Joe Biden coming into town tomorrow. I know that they are scrupulously following the science. They want to keep their supporters and the general public safe,” she said. “Whether you are going to one event on Wednesday or the other on Thursday, I’m going to do everything I can to keep the people of this state safe whether they are supportive of all the measures we’ve taken or not, my job is to protect the people of this state.”

The Daily Wire notes:

Michigan state lawmakers and others have criticized Whitmer for her coronavirus response, and most significantly over her policies regarding nursing and long-term care homes. The Department of Justice has stepped in and requested that Michigan, along with three other states, turn over data on the virus’s impact on nursing homes in the state. Michigan was late to track the data and rolled out a database in late May, more than two months after the lockdowns began in the U.S. over the pandemic.

  1. I love when they preach science, however the science is:
    mask or no mask, statistically the same
    wearing mask lowers O2 blood level and causes increased lung humidity which is perfect environment for respiratory illness (Corona virus)

  2. Mr. Nix – no one has Covina except maybe you. So…. Governor pushes masks for crowds. Why aren’t the rioters held to the same standards? Why do you allow protests and riots without crying foul?

  3. Gretchen Whitmer is a warped, deranged Democrat who just happens to be Governor of Michigan! That is her only distinction! Outside of the fact that she’s the Governor, she’s no different from all the OTHER Democrats (warped, deranged, and all that)!

  4. I pledge to never ever vote for a Democrat.Haven’t done so in years but just to let those insane clods know they have gone way over the edge.

  5. I DON’T KNOW WHERE THE STATE OF MICHIGAN FINDS THE PEOPLE WHO RUN FOR GOVERNOR AND GET ELECTED. THE LAST ONE WAS DUMBER THAT A BOX OF ROCKS AND THIS ONE IS JUST A PLAIN OLD DINGBAT. TOO BAD GOVERNOR WHITMER DIDN’T GOT CHOSEN AS BIDEN’S VP. THE CAMPAIGN LITERATURE WOULD BE “DUMB AND DUMBER”.

  6. Another dumpacrap that needs to be kicked in the crotch so hard that it covers her head so only the eyes are looking through the anus hole with two legs sticking out so she would look like a side stepping beach creatcher and shipped off to the shores of Iran

  7. This governor like other democracts keep kissing butt to the minority for votes. It’s clear that the democracts starting with this airhead is not smart and can’t win elections with them. The minority needs throw these democracts under the bus. Democracts today are nothing but spoiled children

  8. I think Trump should tell people they need to wear a mask due to Covina and even wear a mask himself,if it is not law to wear one in that state it is then the persons choice
