Lockdowns Are for the Little People: ANOTHER Gretchen Whitmer Official Caught at the Beach as Pandemic Rages in Michigan

It seems like it was just last week (because it was) that Michigan’s Chief Operating Officer Trician Foster was caught on the beach in Florida sunning herself while the rest of the Wolverine State was warned to stay away from the Sunshine State.

Rules Are for the Little People: Gov. Whitmer’s Top Aide Defies Gov’s Travel Warnings to Hit Florida Beaches and Post Pics Online – Then lashes Out at Breitbart After She’s Caught

And now less than a week later another Gretchen Whitmer official was also caught

Charlie LeDuff at Deadline Detroit reported:

It’s a simple enough question: Did she or did she not go on vacation last week to the Gulf of Mexico while the pandemic raged in Michigan?

Elizabeth Hertel, the state’s director of health and human services, will not say. Her office instead prefers the dark art of deflection, dissembling and sleight-of-hand.

This comes on the heels of news that her colleague Tricia Foster, the state’s chief operating officer who is in charge of Michigan’s vaccine roll out, beat it for the sunny climes of the Keys during spring break, while Whitmer warned the rest of us to stay away from Florida.

There Foster was – if her Facebook posts are to believed – surrounded by a gaggle of teenage girls sunning themselves poolside, while her son was back in Michigan fighting Covid.

When asked for a comment by Breitbart News – which broke the story – neither Foster nor the administration responded. But Foster deleted the posts.
