Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) violated her own coronavirus orders by going to a bar this weekend, according to an exclusive photo obtained by Breitbart News.
According to a photo one of the attendees posted on Facebook, violating her restaurant orders, Whitmer, along with her appointed chief operations officer Tricia Foster, joined a large group of friends at Landshark in East Lansing.
The photo was posted Saturday. Whitmer’s friend deleted the collage and reposted it as sans the governor and one of her top aides:
The group shot with 13 individuals violates Governor Whitmer’s restaurant capacity order that was issued on May 15th on“gathering limitations for entertainment establishments, recreational establishments, and foodservice establishments”:
b. Gatherings are prohibited at food service establishments, whether indoor or outdoor, unless:
- Consumption of food or beverages is permitted only in a designated dining area where patrons are seated, groups of patrons are separated by at least 6 feet, no more than six patrons are seated together (at a table, booth, or group of fixed seats), and groups of patrons do not intermingle.
Whitmer’s group did not wear masks; a bouncer could be seen with his face covered.
“Last week, Whitmer refused to immediately end her ridiculous restrictions, like a maximum of 6 patrons per table for indoor dining,” Tori Sachs, executive director of Michigan Freedom Fund, told Breitbart News.
“Now Whitmer has once again completely disregarded her own rules. Whitmer orders rules she and her staff don’t follow themselves while Michiganders and businesses suffer. Whitmer must end her restrictions immediately.”
Michigan Freedom Fund called on Whitmer to lift all orders this week, a recommendation the governor ignored.
In April, Foster was caught by Breitbart News ignoring Whitmer’s demand to not travel to Florida for spring break. Foster and unvaccinated teens traveled to the Keys, leaving one of her children home “with covid.”
Whitmer ditched her reopening plan this week; it required benchmarks to be met to be lifted. Instead, she ordered certain restrictions to be eased on June 1 and all orders to be removed July 1.
Despite Whitmer’s repeated complaints, no security personnel was apparent in the photo despite Whitmer’s repeated complaints that she is facing death threats.
