In a Friday press conference, Michigan’s Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said it’s “everybody against COVID” when asking schools to voluntarily close for two weeks, but it appears that does not apply to her top aide Tricia Foster.
“We all have to step up our game for the next two weeks,” she said in the Friday press conference.
Youth sports may not be able to meet, schools may be closing after spring break and Whitmer is asking the federal government for extra assistance but that didn’t stop Foster from traveling to Florida for spring break.
Whitmer said high schools should shift to virtual learning, both school and non-school youth sports should be paused, people should choose outdoor dining or takeout instead of indoor seating, and they should avoid gathering with friends indoors to mitigate the rise in new cases.
Whitmer explained the situation in Michigan as less of a policy problem and more of a compliance and variant issue the state is facing.
“We’re making testing easier for spring break travelers with 56 pop-up sites statewide as part of a special testing program,” she said in the Friday news conference but the state’s chief medical executive said the public health system is overwhelmed with the increase in cases.
During the Friday news briefing, Whitmer went on to emphasize the importance of everyone needing to go “above and beyond the rules in place.”
Whitmer’s press secretary Bobby Leddy acknowledged that the screenshots were from Foster’s Facebook page, Breaking911 tweeted.
“We have to do this together. Lives depend on it, ” Whitmer said. “We’re going to have some tough weeks ahead. So I’m asking everyone — please, take this seriously.”

Somebody douse her with water or tie her up to a stake. She’s never going to let COVID go away.
I think everyone is ignoring this ignorant tyrannical broad now come on Michigan recall her like yesterday what the hell are you waiting for
No kidding. What is Michigan waiting for?
Dibs on the MLB wearing Charlie Weiss’ shirt.
another example of disgusting white-liberal-hypocrisy. another example of “do as I say not as I do”. Everyday they show us exactly why we have to fight against wokeness. We will end up in an even more tyrannical version of China if we relinquish our lives to these woke scumbags
This will continue until the sheeple stop bahhing and start really rising up.
By this time next tomorrow CNN will be blaming Florida for the Michigan outbreak by not forcing her to wear a mask.
Rules for thee not for me. Hypocritical BS
Shocked. Shocked I am.
These DemoKKKrat vermin need to be executed.
Michiganders are not very smart
We have to do this together. Lives depend on it. (Don’t worry Trish, you don’t need set any sort of example of leadership or empathy since you’re in my inner circle.). I’m sure the commoners in Michigan have a great appreciation for the seriousness of the virus. For the people of MI who reflexively vote for Whitmer and her cronies, stand up and cheer!
The problem isn’t the hypocrisy of Whtimer and her staff. The problem is governors like Whitmer, Newsom, Cuomo, Pritzker, Murphy, and Wolf don’t really believe the coronavirus is as dangerous as their claims. They would be the first ones to be locked in their houses if they really believe the coronavirus was a death sentence. Whitmer proves again that it’s not about public health or public safety. It’s all about control and she’s not giving it up.
Spot on Steve. With the group you mentioned, it’s been a course in incompetence, indifference and a lack of empathy. It’s gotten so bad that the media has struggled to cover for them.
Once the initial shutdowns began those infamous “Governors of doom” became drunk with power. It didn’t take long to see addiction take hold. Hard to believe Newsome’s recall is the only one.
Has anyone noticed the plastic sheen on whitmer’s face? a lot of the lady anchors on fox news have this sheen.
did botox go on sale recently? do women know that men don’t find this attractive. in fact, its unattractive.
are women trying to look more like Joe Obiden? 😳😒
Did Botox go on sale!! Classic! LOLOL
Is Obiden plastic? Because that’s what those women who go down that road look like.
In the photo, Gauleiter Whitmer has her arm raised in her usual fascist salute…
So is Whitmer the dumbest governor or simply the most incompetent?
