If you live in a free state like Texas or Florida, you have been enjoying life, lockdown-free, for a while now. You might not even realize that in many Democrat-run parts of the country, abusive restrictions are still in place.
We’re not just talking about public schools still being closed. Businesses continue to struggle to stay open, as capacity limits, social distancing rules, and mask mandates make it impossible for them to earn a living.
That’s true in the deeply-corrupt state of Michigan. Their inept and scandal-ridden governor, Gretchen Whitmer, has already faced plenty of backlash for her unnecessary and disturbing lockdown orders. She even extended certain rules because residents asked for them to end. But time and again, we’ve learned she refuses to follow the very rules she imposes on others.
Now, there is photographic proof she thinks she is better than the people she is supposed to serve.
Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) hit the bar this weekend and violated her own coronavirus orders, according to a photo Breitbart News has exclusively obtained.
Whitmer and a large group of friends, including her appointed chief operations officer, Tricia Foster, visited the Landshark in East Lansing, violating her restaurant orders in the process, according to a photo one of the attendees posted on Facebook.
The photo, posted Saturday, was part of a montage. Shortly after, Whitmer’s friend deleted the collage and reposted it sans the governor and one of her top aides…

Isn’t it funny how Gretchen is willing to impose rules that put restraints on everyone else? But she can easily ignore those rules when it’s convenient for her?
Kind of makes it seem like she thinks she’s above the rule of law, huh? Or, at the very least, she doesn’t really think COVID is all that big of a problem.
Does that make her a hypocrite?
The sickening reality, though, is that this isn’t even the first time we’ve seen Democrats violate the very rules they demand we follow. Nancy Pelosi was seen getting her hair done in San Francisco, during the lockdown, with no mask on. Gov. Gavin Newsom of California was frequently seen in restaurants that were supposed to be closed.
Democratic senators ignored mask rules in airports. Others, liberal city council members, dined out at restaurants immediately after voting to keep them closed.
And that’s not even getting to the many times Whitmer’s broken the rules before this event. Her husband tried to get around restrictions everyone had to deal with last summer. More recently, the governor flew to Florida to get away from it all—violating state and federal mandates.
You have to wonder how many times this woman can break the rules, before the people of Michigan have had enough? The people of California are recalling their governor—why aren’t the people of Michigan doing the same?
It’s high time a real leader took the reins of this state—for good.
