Yesterday we told you about Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, whose coronavirus lockdown orders were among the strictest in the nation but are now starting to ease, participated in a march while chanting “hands up don’t shoot.” Whitmer was heavily criticized for failing to obey her own directives, but the governor’s spokesperson is saying she didn’t violate any rules:
"Whitmer spokeswoman Tiffany Brown denied the governor had violated her own executive order issued Monday that says people should remain six feet apart if participating in public gatherings."https://t.co/m4Hcz7yI0N pic.twitter.com/q3xbaecGeW
