Coincidence or congressional hearings, some of the worst perpetrators of COVID tyranny have been keen to reimagine their records of late and that included some premium grade gaslighting from Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) that some policies were “a little…more than we needed to do.”
Something like cockroaches when the lights are turned on, the slow walk to confirming the lab leak as more and more data is produced about vaccine injuries has seen many public figures singing new songs about shutting the country down at the pandemic’s three-year anniversary. Dr. Leana Wen implored a reset of trust in public health as Dr. Anthony “The Science™” Fauci sought to redefine what constituted a lab leak and, following their lead, Whitmer simultaneously admitted an overstep as she denied what it was.
Joining CNN’s Chris Wallace for “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?” Whitmer admitted, “There were moments where we, you know, had to make some decisions that in retrospect don’t make a lot of sense, right?”
“If you went into the hardware store, you could go in the hardware store but we didn’t want people, you know, all congregating around the gardening supplies. People said, ‘Oh, she’s outlawed seeds.’ It was February in Michigan,” she claimed. “No one was planting anyway. But, that being said, you know, some of those policies I look back and think…that maybe was a little…more than we needed to do.”
Despite her claim, as BizPacReview had covered at the time, Whitmer’s extended stay-at-home order was issued on April 9, 2020, with an expiration of May 1, infamously prohibiting access to the aisles of stores where seeds would be accessible.
The Federalist had remarked, “Never mind that growing fruits and vegetables at home right now would help maintain social distancing during the pandemic, the governor has spoken and her word is law.”

Others pointed out the time discrepancy as well and noted, even if her claim were true, it didn’t change how free citizens would have behaved.

Don’t you have to start most veggies inside? I’m from Wisconsin and that’s what I see everyone doing. Maybe not have to but is it not better?

Tudor Dixon, Whitmer’s GOP gubernatorial rival in 2022, spoke with Fox News Digital and offered her take on what the governor was doing, saying, “Gretchen Whitmer is backpedaling as she plots her political future.”
“She once again attempts to gaslight the people of Michigan into thinking she bears no responsibility for the tyrannical, confusing and cruel lockdown policies she put in place,” Dixon added. “Her heavy-handed decisions crushed businesses, student achievement and livelihoods in our state and none of her lies can hide these horrible but true facts.”
And They Voted her back in. Couldn’t ride on a lake in a row boat.

Even worse, he used the "don't you know who I am?"

For the time being, Whitmer insisted to Wallace that she is not seeking a challenge to President Joe Biden for the 2024 Democratic nomination, but she did not wholly rule out running for higher office in 2028. As she endeavored to cover for garden tyranny, others were certain to remind the governor that she still had a lot of explaining to do concerning nursing home deaths.
Wrong on seed sales and wrong on sending covid patients to nursing homes. Wrong for Michigan.

This is SO insane on SO many levels, but the sickest part is that she is SO flippant & actually fighting back a big smile while remembering how she (now admittedly) needlessly caused aggravation & suffering for her people in Michigan.
This woman appears to be evil in this video.

Locked arms with protestors at the height of the pandemic. Pulled tables together so she could drink with a dozen of her buddies. Warned the healthiest among us not to go to Fl, and then flew to Fl.

Yeah nobody cared about missing loved ones funerals or removing children from crutial academic time in school with their peers… we were all just concerned with being in the garden section at Home Depot together. What a clown.
