This Governor believes criticism of her job performance despite the nation’s highest COVID rate is “misogyny”

From the very beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the states who have struggled the most are those led by far-left politicians.

The states with the most infections, the most deaths, the highest unemployment, and more are all Democrat-run states.

But this Governor believes the criticism over her job performance, despite having the nation’s highest COVID rate, is nothing but “misogyny.”

Data from the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention currently shows that Michigan has the highest rate of COVID infection in the United States.

In Michigan, the data says that there are roughly 516 COVID cases per 100,000 residents, while New Jersey ranks second with just 300 cases per 100,000 residents.

To put it as clearly as possible, Michigan currently has a higher COVID rate than California, Texas, and Florida — the three most populated states in America — combined.

On top of that, Michigan’s vaccine distribution plan has proven to be such a failure that thousands of Michigan residents have driven to Ohio in order to secure the vaccine, according to the non-partisan, non-profit news organization, Bridge Michigan.

Michigan’s Governor Gretchen Whitmer has rightly received criticism for all of those failures, and is even potentially facing criminal charges for her executive order that forbid nursing homes from turning away COVID-positive patients that led to an exponential increase in COVID deaths at nursing homes.

But as far as Whitmer is concerned, any criticisms of her job performance aren’t justified, and are really nothing but “misogyny.”

On CBS’ Face The Nation on Sunday, Whitmer was asked about criticism she’s received from top Republicans in Michigan, including Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser who recently referred to her and the state’s other top female Democrat politicians as “witches.”

“I can tell you this, though, that sadly in this moment there have been a lot of death threats,” Whitmer responded. “We know that there was a plot to kidnap and kill me. Death threats against me and my family. It’s different in what I’m confronting than what some of my male counterparts are.”

“So, yes, I do think that there is a layer of misogyny here that every woman in leadership has been confronting and dealing with to some extent,” she continued.

While Whitmer dismissed the criticism of her job performance, she went on to claim that she doesn’t have time for the criticism because she’s focused on helping her state and their economy rebound from issues her policies created.

“I don’t have time, though, to focus on that or to go punch for punch. I’m not going to do that,” Whitmer said. “I’ve got a job to do and that is helping get my state through this, helping get our economy back on track, supporting the American Jobs Plan so that that helps us do both of those things. And that’s what I’m going to stay focused on.”

Of course, if Governor Whitmer had been focused on doing what’s best for her state from the start, such a massive recovery wouldn’t be necessary.

But obviously, as most politicians do, she has separated herself from her own failures and decided to utilize the Democrat playbook of crying discrimination any time someone points out that she has failed.

Quite frankly, if there is any misogyny going on in regards to the criticism Gretchen Whitmer has received, it’s from Democrats and the media who put New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on a pedestal as some sort of COVID hero when his state was ravaged by his policies, but have refused to provide the same level of support to Michigan’s female Governor in similar circumstances.

It’s obviously easier just to accuse Republicans of misogyny than for Whitmer to look in the mirror and take responsibility for her failures, though.

That’s just the product of being a politician who cares more about your own enrichment and career advancement than the people you represent.
