Michigan’s Democratic Governor Caught in a Big One – Watch
The Democrats just can’t stop lying. President Biden lies, but probably doesn’t even know it, John Fetterman just lied about not previously being against fracking, and Kathy Hochul lied when she said that criminals in New York are facing consequences.
But maybe one of the biggest lies told by Democrats this week came from Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. During her debate with Tudor Dixon, she lied about her responsibility in her state’s school lockdowns during the COVID pandemic. She was one of the worst governors during the pandemic in the country.
Whitmer tried to claim in the debate that she only kept children out of the classroom for three months as she worked to explain why school test scores are drastically falling.
“Mrs. Dixon says I kept students out longer than any other state…kids were out for three months,” Whitmer claimed with a sly smile.
What? It’s a wonder her nose didn’t start to grow!
Tuder Dixon was on it immediately.
“I’m pretty sure I just heard an audible gasp around town when Gretchen Whitmer said that kids were out of school for three months. Maybe she thinks she can convince YOU that schools were closed for three months, but you know better because your students are the ones that are desperately behind,” Dixon declared.
Does Whitmer think parents will believe her just because she says so? Does she think parents aren’t very aware of how long their children were out of the classroom and how it has caused them to fall so far behind? Whitmer’s lie is not going to just slip by, it is just so far from the truth, and people are certainly going to show her the repercussion when they get into the voting booth.
Parents have become a powerful voting block in Michigan, and the governor has just made her political bed.

.@TudorDixon responds to Whitmer claiming she only closed schools for three months: “Maybe she thinks she can convince YOU that schools were closed for three months, but you know better because your students are the ones that are desperately behind.”

8 months after closing schools, Gretchen Whitmer closed them again.
Yet in tonight’s debate, Whitmer said schools were only closed for 3 months.
