Governor Whitmer Imposed Stay-at-Home Then Hit Up Billionaire Friends to Secretly Fly Her Out to Florida

“We wondered why she reached out to us instead of booking a private charter. You can’t tell a governor no. Who needs that kind of trouble?”

A spokesman for Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer confirmed in April that Whitmer flew to Florida while instructing Michiganders to stay home while under COVID-19 lockdown orders. Now, a new report indicates Whitmer contacted wealthy Detroit businessmen to lend a private plane.

Spokesman Bobby Leddy said the governor traveled on three occasions to Florida to visit her elderly father. [Which is perfectly normal but what about all the elderly fathers of the 10 million people in her state?] The governor’s office claimed taxpayer money was not used for travel. Deadline Detroit reports Whitmer avoided a private plane fee in the range of $10,000 to $20,000 by asking billionaires to provide a charter. The jet she took would have allegedly ran her a fee of $40,000, an estimated 25 percent of Whitmer’s salary before taxes.

“We wondered why she reached out to us instead of booking a private charter,” one of the owners of the plane said. “You can’t tell a governor no. Who needs that kind of trouble?”

The governor was asked about the report Thursday and declined to provide information as to whether she reimbursed the Detroit businessmen.

“I’ve said everything I’m going to say about my trip to check on my father,” she told a reporter from WWTV. “I’ve got nothing to add. We don’t discuss my travel. I have received an incredible number of death threats over the last year and a half. There are a lot of reasons we don’t discuss how I travel and when I travel.”

While Whitmer released vaccine benchmarks and encouraged residents to get shots, she was not vaccinated upon traveling to Florida for four days. The jet she flew on, a Gulfstream G-280 twin, took her from Lansing, Michigan to West Palm Beach, Florida.

Two weeks after getting back from her trip, Whitmer made a point to tell Michiganders to stay home.

“Gov. Gretchen 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,” the Associated Press reported on April 3.

Then, appearing on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press” on April 19, Whitmer said people should avoid travel.

“Michigan and Florida are not next to each other,” she said. “But this is the time of the year that snowbirds come home from Florida, where people are going on spring break, and all of these things can contribute to spread. We’re imploring people to take this seriously, mask up, get tested. If you’ve been around someone who’s positive, stay home.”

Whitmer’s administration refuses to provide details of her Florida trip due to “ongoing security concerns.” Jason Roe, executive director of the Michigan GOP, said in a statement that Whitmer “has been the most opaque governor in Michigan history.”

“Governor Whitmer lied about her trip to Florida and is compounding her lies by refusing to disclose the cost of the private plane she used, if she paid for her personal trip, and what the fair market value of that payment was,” Roe said.

Why would anyone be surprised? This is how despots act. They have lives…. you just exist. Ninty percent of what they say and do is a lie. The other ten percent is devoted to make your life as miserable as possible while they suck all the life from you.

I still know people that are not allowed to visit parents (relatives) due to this fictional disease. In my opinion many of these torture chambers we call nursing homes should be burnt to the ground.

Power, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…I see my old friend Gavin Newsome, attending a private party at an expensive French restaurant with lobbyists and political cronies, multi-family and unmasked, after laying down the law to Californians and revoking their rights and freedoms to get together with friends and family…

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/newsom-on-french-laundry-dinner-party-e2-80-98i-made-a-bad-mistake-e2-80-99/ar-BB1b4ffP

And there’s my buddy Michael Hancock, Mayor of Denver,Colorado, who went straight from a press conference just before Thanksgiving – where he urged Coloradans to stay home and avoid travel – and got on a plane to Mississippi!

https://kdvr.com/news/coronavirus/denver-mayor-hancock-travels-for-thanksgiving-despite-urging-others-to-avoid-gatherings/

All over the world, western politicians preach doom and pestilence and plague…and then chuckle to themselves at the simplicity of the rubes they lead as they take a little private time to do just as they please, unregulated by the laws they thunder from the bully pulpit. And now Gretchen Whitmer, one of the most incompetent politicians in a country where you can barely swing a cat by the tail without hitting an idiot who thinks he or she was born to lead, caught in the act and playing the ‘death threats’ card to wriggle out from under. Gosh! I wonder why people would want to kill her?

Lookie here, friends and neighbours – it is a measure of just what a massive and manifold crock this ‘pandemic’ is, that the most demanding task for our ‘leaders’ is to keep a straight face while laying down the hard line, even as they feel perfectly free to ignore all that scary talk as soon as they think you’re not looking. And like entitled jerks everywhere, they think all they have to do is pull a long face and say, “I made a bad mistake’ to avoid all accountability.

Ask yourself if you would have gotten away with it if it had been you the papers chose to tattle on. Try looking at yourself in the mirror while you say, “I made a bad mistake” to assess how convincing you look.

It’s been said only America will willingly and knowingly vote for a dictatorship.
Previously other countries got a dictatorship after being lied into voting for something else …..then they got the camps and firing squads.
This fake, surgically enhanced face, will go for total power.
A Nazi female guard had lampshades made of tattooed human skin. Power and evil have no limits until totally destroyed.
Then again there is Hillary, Californian’s Low IQ crew and the actress AOC….. “Any Old Crap” will be believed.
So many bitches not enough collars.

I refer you to her trial. Google it they have a photo of the bitch.
A book with a jacket of tattooed skin from a human being was recently found in Europe.
Then again Jew haters have no need for the truth.
If you Google death camps in Poland, plenty of photos of small tattooed children.

One photo you might enjoy ……is of a naked mother , clutching her baby walking into a pit full of dead and dying humans and a soldier up above her with a rife, braising himself for a shot. You may like it as wallpaper on your phone, or share with your like minded friends.

There is a reason why super, advanced aliens have not made contact with planet earth.

As a Michigander, I can only express my disgust and loathing towards this hideous example of a governor. Hypocrite does not describe this wretched POS.
The entire Whitmer administration is filled with self serving little female wannabe dictators.The economy of this state has been wrecked thanks to her and it will take a long time to recover….if it ever does.
the next time she jets off to Florida I hope she stays there, that is if Gov. DeSantis allows her to. which I doubt.
The Democrat party is poison. It is more communist than democratic. Filled with power hungry little psychopaths.
Never trust a democrat and never trust a female democrat politician.

Have issues with females? Can’t get your pecker up?
Why not stand for Congress in 2022 and solve all the problems you have with these women. Not to mention Michigangdangurs other corrupt crap.
Then continue fixing the rest of American self inflicted problems.
Or maybe not….just rant and rave, spewing hate from moms basement.
