Whitmer Lashes Out At Michiganders After Getting Her Tail Handed To Her By A Judge
Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer as we’ve come to learn freaks out when she is told no and Tuesday she lashed out again.
Monday afternoon Whitmer was slapped down by a Shiawassee County judge when the Michigan attorney general sought a temporary restraining order against 77-year-old barber, Karl Manke. In defiance of the stay at home order Manke re-opened his shop and despite being served by the State Police and cited for crimes by local police Manke is staying open.
When presented with the temporary restraining order Circuit Court Judge Matthew Stewart refused to sign the order, instead, he has scheduled a hearing so Mr. Manke can have a voice. To boot, Brian BeGole, the Sheriff of Shiawassee County said that he will no longer enforce the Governor’s current executive order.
“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.”

None of this sat well with the Whitmer and on Tuesday she unloaded.
“These executive orders are not a suggestion. They’re not optional. They’re not helpful hints.”

“I’ve never seen this type of oppression by a government, ever, not even in the ’60s,” Manke said. “The government is not my parent. Never has been. I have other ways of being able to substantiate an income, but it’s all gone,” he said.
