Yet another example of an authority figure violating their own COVID-19 restrictions occurred over the weekend after Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was forced to apologize for breaking rules on indoor dining.
Whitmer was photographed with a dozen people at a bar in East Lansing, violating rules which state a maximum of 6 people can be seated at a table.
“Yesterday, I went with friends to a local restaurant. As more people arrived, the tables were pushed together,” the governor said in a statement. “Because we were all vaccinated, we didn’t stop to think about it. In retrospect, I should have thought about it. I am human. I made a mistake, and I apologize.”
In other words, yet again, it’s one rule for the plebs and another rule for those in power.
By dining inside with more than 6 other people, Whitmer was violating a statewide order that was passed only the week before.
