Add Gretchen Whitmer to the growing list of “Do What I Say, Not What I Do” Democrats who won’t abide by their own draconian lockdown orders. After barring Michiganders from traveling to their vacation homes, Whitmer’s husband traveled to their vacation home before Memorial Day weekend where he proceeded to use the “Don’t you know who I am?” card.
The most shocking thing about this story isn’t that Whitmer’s husband violated the lockdown and traveled to their vacation home.
The most shocking thing is discovering that somebody married that woman.
I gotta admit, that came as a complete surprise to me.
When Whitmer’s husband was up at their vacation home, he called the boat dock and requested he be allowed to put the Whitmer family’s boat in the water. After he was told they couldn’t possibly get it done prior to Memorial Day, Mr. Karen said, “I am the husband to the governor. Will this make a difference?”
You know it’s bad when Politico – that reliable Democrat Public Relations firm – actually calls you out for your husband acting like a prat.
According to Governor Karen, her husband was just joking around.
See, he only went up to their vacation home to rake leaves.
Because apparently it’s October in Michigan.
But that’s it. That’s all he did. He just went up for a night or two to rake the leaves, then come right back home.
And, so, what exactly? After a busy day of raking leaves, he decided to have a joke on the boat dock people because he was bored? So even though he had no intention of getting his boat in the water because all he was doing was raking the leaves, he thought it would be a great laugh to call them up anyway and play the “My wife is the Governor” card?
Just how desperate is this guy to get his boat in the water for him to admit to someone he’s married to Gretchen Whitmer?
He must really love motorboating.
Crap. Now I have a mental image of Mr. Karen motorboating with his Governor wife, and I sincerely wish I hadn’t written that.
My guess is Governor Karen knew full well how bad this looked. Chances are, she wasn’t expecting her husband’s little trip to their vacation home to blow up in her face and make her look like a hypocrite.
So what does she do?
What do all Democrats do?
She played the victim.
She had to cancel her own daughter’s graduation! And prom!
People are protesting her!
Vile things are being said about her on social media!
And the guns! Don’t forget the people with those scary “automatic weapons” which aren’t really “automatic weapons,” but saying “semi-automatic rifles” doesn’t sound scary enough or help drive home her point that she’s the victim.
In short, “How dare you ask about my idiot husband going to our vacation home and making me look like a hypocritical bitch?! I’m the true victim here!”
Does the Victim Card come with the “I’ve just been elected to office” Democrat Party starter kit?
Whitmer claims that all of this is the fault of COVID-19. But that’s BS. It isn’t the pandemic that has caused all this anger and resentment in Michigan. Governor Karen’s panicked and incompetent response is the cause.
And as I said the other day, Whitmer hasn’t a clue how to pull her state out of this dive she put it in. She’s in over her head. So instead of acting swiftly and wisely to get Michiganders back to work and back to their regularly scheduled lives, she keeps extending the lockdown and blaming it on a mythical “second wave” that might, maybe, possibly occur.
Governor Karen says she isn’t happy about what her husband did.
Of course she isn’t. That makes two strikes against her in her quest to be Biden’s running mate. Maybe she still had a chance when the only strike against her was “I’m white.” But now? “I’m white and privileged” has doomed her.
And if the Biden campaign decides to drop her like a hot rock, and her hopes of taking up residence at the Naval Observatory are dashed, I expect Mr. Governor Karen will be spending the rest of his days alone in their vacation home. Whether he likes it or not.
