Gov. Whitmer concerned that Michigan protesters could cause longer stay-home duration

Governor Gretchen Whitmer says she’s concerned that protests “make it likelier” that Michiganders will have to stay home longer.

On Wednesday the embattled governor told the hosts of “The View” that the president’s insistence that she reopen Michigan and make a deal with legislators is pouring fuel on the fire of unrest in the state.

Whitmer said the protests will likely bring about a longer stay-home posture, exactly what the protesters are trying to avoid.

She also added that the protests appear to her to be more of political rallies, featuring Confederate flags, Nazi symbolism, and calls for violence. Another protest is planned for Thursday.

Well Michigan peeps you know what HAS to be done now….. Vote this Grinchen out. If you all re-elect her then you have no one else to blame but yourself. Come on now if the T.V. show the View likes Grinchen then she must be a “real piece of work” because the View is a crappy Liberal show. I am on your side peeps and hope that she stops playing games with you and you all can live your life.

What’s the matter with you Michiganders? Shut up! Sit down. Stay at home! Obey your masters! How dare you take the Bill of Rights seriously. The founders meant unalienable rights unless there’s a virus.
