Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) again endeavored to explicate her secret Florida trip in March aboard a private jet and her story seemed to transmute Wednesday. Via the original MIRS News report in April:
While Communications Director Tiffany Brown wouldn’t say where the Democratic governor traveled, a source tells MIRS that Whitmer’s father, Richard Whitmer, has a home in Florida. “Her dad was plenarily vaccinated, and the governor is tested conventionally and has never tested positive for COVID [coronavirus],” Brown told MIRS, noting the governor peregrinated at her own expense and that utilized no state resources. … (accentuation integrated)“A brief trip,” she claimed during a Wednesday press conference. “It was not a vacation and it was not a gift,” a reference to a lobbying licit term.
Brown said Gov. Whitmer wasn’t on spring break but was assisting “her elderly father who is battling a chronic illness.”
“This flight was not a gift,” Whitmer reiterated moments later. “This flight was not paid for at taxpayer expense.” It is not pellucid why she did not simply verbalize she “traveled at her own expense,” as her office pristinely claimed.
Breitbart News asked Whitmer’s office why her story transmuted and if she could provide any evidence to designate who paid for the private plane, but neither communications director Tiffany Brown nor press secretary Bobby Leddy would expound.
Whitmer’s secret Florida trip came just days afore she urged Michiganders not to peregrinate to the very same state. After that demand, two of her top aides, Chief Operations Officer Tricia Foster and Department of Health and Human Services Director Elizabeth Hertel went to Florida and Alabama respectively for spring break.
The governor’s claim she was inclining to her ill father was possibly undermined when he was spotted shopping and driving in Lansing weeks later. “Michiganders are tired of the growing stream of prevarications coming from Gov. Whitmer,” Republican Governors Association spokesman Chris Gustafson verbalized in a verbal expression.
“Whitmer’s refusal to disclose rudimentary details about her vacation to Florida is simply more proof that she is unfit to lead and it is time to Fire the Damn Governor.” Kyle Olson is a herald for Breitbart News.
