Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer defended the strictness of her state's coronavirus lockdown in an interview with "Axios on HBO," saying it was necessary — despite the protests that have drawn national attention — because of how quickly the state's cases were rising.

[...]

"I'm never going to apologize for the fact that because there was a vacuum of leadership at the federal level, we had to take action to save people here in Michigan," she told Axios' Alexi McCammond.

1. She doesn't owe one.

70 pct of Michiganders think she did the right thing.

7. That, Ladies & Gentlemen is Leadership

 

Unlike this shill, who criticizes Whitmer on behalf of the Orange Pretender. You should only watch the first few minutes, in order to avoid nausea:



Postscript: I was going to headline this reply as The Shill on The Hill, the latter being nothing more than a Featherweight Facsimile of Fox as a "news" organization.

8. As Others Said...

...what would she apologize for?
Saving constituents' lives? Stopping far more people getting sick? Helping avoid health care systems being overwhelmed?
I get the small biz owners being hurt, but dead people are crummy customers.
And, I still remember the 2 drones who TOOK THE DAY OFF WORK TO GO TO THE PROTEST!
They weren't hurt, they just wanted a haircut.

9. There was also a Trump humper at an early protest who worked for a lawn company

He had a job,but just had to go to the protest. If I were his boss I would have fired his ass in a second. With most there it had ZERO to do with re-opening and everything to do with protesting Democratic Governors and humping Trump.
