On May 22, Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced a new executive order that would extend the lockdown on citizens in the state of Michigan through June 12.
As part of her new (5th) executive order, Whitmer announced that she will allow businesses in the upper portion of lower Michigan and all businesses in the upper peninsula to reopen. Curiously, as part of her executive order, Whitmer gave the go-ahead to dentists to reopen their businesses across the state on June 1st.
Governor Whitmer’s husband, Dr. Marc Mallory is a dentist.
Apparently, according to Whitmer, dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants who place their hands in the mouths of patients throughout the day are somehow less likely than hairdressers and barbers to spread COVID-19.
Dr. Zafar Tariq a dentist at Smile Innovations in Novi, MI, who’s looking forward to reopening, told WXYZ, “When it comes to that scale of high risk, hygienist and dentists are at the very top.”
Why are dentists, who are considered high risk for catching COVID-19, allowed to open, while beauty salons, barbershops, and gyms still closed in the state of Michigan? Does Gretchen Whitmer think barbers and beauticians aren’t smart enough to take the proper precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in their businesses?
One of the victims of Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s multiple overreaching executive orders is 77-year-old Owosso, MI barber, Karl Manke, who defied the governor’s shutdown order after he realized he was going to lose his business if he didn’t reopen.
After being denied twice by unemployment, Karl Manke said he had enough.
“The governor decided she was going to go another two weeks, and then another two weeks, and now this last time when she said we weren’t going to come back May 1st, that we were going to be secluded here until the 28th– it brought me to my knees.,” Manke said.
In early May, Owosso police cited Manke for a civil infraction and two misdemeanors. A court date is set for June 23, and he faces a more than $1,000 fine.
On May 13, a Michigan judge denied an attempt by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration to immediately shut down an Owosso barbershop whose owner has been cutting hair in defiance of the governor’s coronavirus shutdown order.
The judge denied the state’s claim that the 77-year-old Karl Manke was to close his shop because he was allegedly in violation of Whitmer’s executive order to shut down all non-essential businesses amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
On May 28, the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that the 77-year-old barber in Owosso, MI, who was simply trying to survive, must close his doors.
Who gets to pick the winners and the losers in the state of Michigan? Is it fair that so many Michigan businesses will be forced to permanently close after being forced to close for months, while dentist offices and businesses surrounding Whitmer’s summer cottage in northern MI are allowed to reopen?
Dr. Marc Mallory is apparently used to getting preferential treatment when it comes to his wife, last week, we were first to break the story about his phone call to Northshore Docks in northern MI, where he tried to take cuts ahead of the commoners waiting to have their boats placed in the water.
While staying at their summer home in Antrim County over Memorial weekend, Whitmer’s husband called Northshore Docks and asked if it would help him to move up in the line if they knew his wife is Governor Gretchen Whitmer? Dr. Mallory’s wife, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, is the reason boating services are so backed up across the state after she banned Michigan citizens from using motorized boats as a way to keep Michigan residents from spreading coronavirus. Because motorized boats are apparently, a great way to spread COVID-19 <sarcasm>.
No wonder Michigan residents are 100 Percent Fed Up with their governor…
