Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s leadership has been met with criticism and inconsistency in her actions. Leading people to consider her one of America’s worst governors.

One controversy was her signing of a Red Flag bill into law.

This law permits various individuals, including family members, police, mental health professionals, and former dating partners, to petition a judge to remove firearms from individuals considered a danger to themselves or others.

The judge has 24 hours to decide, and the affected person has 14 days to prove they are not a significant risk.

Even though many of the State’s sheriffs, who say it’s unconstitutional, protested.

Governor Whitmer preserved abortion rights in the Michigan state constitution by repealing a 1931 law that banned abortion.

This move required health plans covering pregnancy to also cover abortion, drawing criticism from groups like the Michigan Catholic Conference.

“Long-standing conscience protections have been stripped from employers who may now be forced to choose between violating their moral principals by providing abortion coverage or dropping their employee healthcare benefits altogether,” Right to Life Michigan said.

The Michigan Catholic Conference said “Despite abortion rights supporters frequently mentioning ‘choice’ and how abortion is ‘no one’s business,’ this bill takes away the choice to decline support for abortions and makes it the business of employers and fellow employees to pay for others’ abortions.”

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Whitmer implemented strict lockdown measures.

She then faced criticism for not following her own social distancing and mask-wearing recommendations.

“Large stores must also close areas of the store that are dedicated to carpeting, flooring, furniture, garden centers, plant nurseries, or paint.” she said.

“There were some situations where in retrospect they don’t make a lot of sense. If you went into the hardware store. If you went to the hardware store, we didn’t want people all congregating in the gardening supplies, and people said she outlawed seeds,” Whitmer said.

“But now I look back and see that maybe that was a little more than we needed to do.” she added.

The Ballenger Report said “Michiganders learned that she doesn’t abide by the same arbitrary rules she’s imposed on every resident of Michigan. She shunned masks when she’s with her friends. She was caught red-handed violating her own social distancing guidelines.”

“She ordered us not to travel, not to see our families, not to leave our homes, only to hop on a private jet and fly down in secret to Florida to visit with her supposedly ailing father.”

“After trying to cover up her Florida junket, Whitmer refused to answer the most basic questions about it.” they added.

Whitmer has been effective in advancing progressive policies and maintaining party control but her leadership has generated controversy and inconsistencies in her actions, leading people to consider her one of America’s worst governors.
