Gretchen Whitmer Lashes out at Michiganders: Lockdown ‘Not Optional,’ Orders ‘Not Suggestions’

As Michiganders continue to defy her orders, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer lashed out at residents on Monday, saying the coronavirus lockdown is “not optional.”

Whitmer was asked about business owners and residents “doubting” her authority to enforce executive orders.

She claimed to know how “frustrating” the situation is, before cautioning “I expect people to follow the law.

“These executive orders are not a suggestion. They’re not optional. They’re not helpful hints.”

Owosso barber Karl Manke has become a like folk hero in the movement to reopen the state. The 77-year-old Manke has refused to close his shop, despite repeated orders to do so.

“He just wants to work,” Manke’s attorney, David Kallman, said, according to the Lansing State Journal.

“And he wants to do it in a safe and responsible way.”

The Michigan attorney general sought a temporary retraining order against Manke on behalf of Whitmer, but was denied by a Shiawassee County judge.

Circuit Court Judge Matthew Stewart refused to sign the order before a hearing.

Meanwhile, Shiawassee County Sheriff Brian BeGole said his department would not enforce Whitmer’s orders.

“With limited resources, staffing and facilities, our priority focus will be on enforcing duly passed laws for the protection of Shiawassee County citizens,” BeGole wrote in a public letter.

“I have decided, within my authority, that our office cannot and will not divert our primary resources and efforts towards enforcement of the Governor Whitmer’s executive orders.”

"I expect people to follow the law"

Typical Democrat. The law is important only when they want it to be. I wonder how she feels about illegal immigration......

She's trying to look "tough" and "in charge" and failing miserably.
It's laughable.
She's hysterical, but leftism is grounded on uncontrolled emotions - and predominantly the desire to receive the attention in adulthood that was never received as a child.

Btw, the word "hysterical" derives from the Greek hystericus, which expressed the belief that hysteria was caused by a disturbance in the uterus and that it belonged exclusively to women. This is why women are better at building pies than governing.

Okay, I joke. But only barely. I happen to love my pie builder, and she would make a great governor.

A judge that won't sign a TRO, and an elected sheriff who decides to reflect the perceived desires of the constituency who elected him? Sounds like checks and balances working as designed, even if it isn't to the liking of another elected official. Doesn't mean it's going to be pretty, either. Might not even work out to the ultimate benefit of everyone, if the illness is spread as a result. Elections have consequences.

Or Second Amendment rights, or only allowing lawful citizens to vote, etc. etc. etc.
