Joe Biden’s top VP candidate dug her own political grave with a shocking statement she can’t take back.
She may have just cost Democrats the election.
A top Democrat made a chilling threat to punish millions for one act of defiance.
The Democrats need to win Michigan in the next election, that’s the reason why Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer was considered a top candidate for Biden’s vice presidential pick.
She was hoping that by following the party line of tight restrictions, she would make herself more attractive to the Democrat leadership.
She’s banned lawn care, selling seeds or plants, moving between houses, and many more restrictions.
Her total economic shutdown has made her state top of the list in terms of unemployment.
20% of the people in Michigan are out of a job which led to a protest.
The organizers of the protest instructed the protesters to stay within their vehicles to abide by social distancing regulations and honk their horns as they drove around the statehouse.
However, instead of seeing the pain that her policies are causing her people, Whitmer claims that she’ll have to extend the lockdown because of the protest.
According to The Daily Wire:
According to the Democrat, the citizens were not actually protesting her extreme lockdown order, but holding a “political rally,” she told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. Their “irresponsible” behavior, she said, is why the May 1 lockdown might be pushed to a later date.
“When you see a, you know, a political rally — that’s what it was yesterday — a political rally like that, where people aren’t wearing masks, and they’re in close quarters, and they’re touching one another, you know that that’s precisely what makes this kind of a disease drag out and expose more people,” Whitmer said, reported The Washington Examiner.
“People came and converged together in Lansing, and then they went back out to their homes out in Michigan. The odds are very high that they are spreading COVID-19 along with it,” Whitmer continued. “It’s that kind of irresponsible action that puts us in this situation that makes us think we might have to actually think about extending stay-at-home orders, which is supposedly what they were protesting.”
All grocery stores have people stand six-feet apart from each other when at the register.
The goal of social distancing is to stop the medical system from getting overwhelmed, not to stop there from being any cases.
Michigan hospitals are reporting a decrease in coronavirus patients.
The mayor of Detroit said that there have only been 47 coronavirus deaths in the last three days.
The numbers are going down and many people are suffering from their lack of employment.
Instead of punishing people because they dislike her insane policies, Whitmer should be trying to restart the parts of the economy that are safest.
The Democrat leadership should warn her to stop her crazy restrictions or she’ll ensure they lose the state in the presidential election.
