The Democratic hypocrisy on COIVD-19 lockdowns continues apace.
This time we return to Michigan – where last May, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s husband invoked his high-powered spouse in an effort to flout a ban on boating, which admittedly was absurd.
Tricia Foster, appointed by Whitmer as Michigan’s chief operations officer, posted photos of herself, her daughter, and her daughter’s friends on the beach in Florida, maskless.
And as we’ve seen so often with Democrats, the pictures were posted just days after the governor urged her constituents not to go to Florida.
On April 3, the Associated Press reported that Whitmer “says a factor in Michigan’s surging COVID-19 cases is fewer people were infected earlier in the pandemic than in other states. She also is concerned about spring break travel, particularly to Florida.”

“Florida and Michigan have reported the highest and second-highest number of cases of a more contagious variant that was first identified in the U.K. Michigan had the United States’ worst infection rate in the past two weeks. Whitmer on Friday recommended that people get tested after in-state, out-of-state, or international travel.
She continues to emphasize vaccinations to help end the pandemic,” the AP reported.
In a snippy statement, Whitmer’s spokesman denounced Breitbart’s report as “a partisan attack from a garbage white nationalist website.”
The spokesperson added that Foster “is fully recovered from COVID and fully vaccinated,” which according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention makes it OK for Foster to travel.
Of course, even if she had not recovered and been vaccinated, Foster would have been safer in Florida than in Michigan.
According to The New York Times’ COVID-19 tracker as of Friday, Michigan, which has abided by all the Fauci-isms on masks, lockdowns, school openings, and so on from the start, posts a death rate per 100,000 residents of 175.
Florida’s is 158.
Meanwhile, in a previous scandal allegation, Whitmer was accused last month of covering up data on COVID-related nursing home deaths, and the state attorney general, a Democrat, has refused Republicans’ requests for an investigation.
No one should be surprised by Foster’s vacation. After all, she’s a Democrat and violating their own lockdowns – with examples like California Gov. Gavin Newsom going to a swanky restaurant, Speaker Nancy Pelosi getting her hair done and D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser going out of her city to celebrate Joe Biden’s win – is just what they do.
