What won’t these people say?
During a recent interview with CNN, Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) claimed that President Trump was putting American lives on the line by holding campaign rallies.
According to Breitbart, CNN’s Anderson Cooper asked, “President Trump, we see the event, you know, he’s holding tonight and holing campaign event in your state this Thursday. As you see, the pictures today from Florida and North Carolina with no essential distancing, many not wear masks, how do you avoid this happening in Michigan? Can you?”
Whitmer responded, “Well, it’s distressing, to say the least. We have been following the science here in Michigan. We have a mask mandate. We have gathering rules to ensure that we don’t have super spreader events, and yet, we anticipate that he’ll be descending on this state and perhaps encouraging people to come maskless and come together in the ways we’ve seen them happening across the country and I think this is very distressing.
“We pushed our curve down,” she added. “We’ve saved thousands of lives. We got people back to work, and events like this threaten all that sacrifice 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. This is an economic crisis. This is a public health crisis. We got to get serious about it and focus on getting this right.”
