The husband of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer apparently thinks his wife's Executive Orders don't apply to him and shouldn't stop his Memorial Day.

Detroit News

Whitmer previously had Executive Ordered all motorised boating to be banned but recently lifted this Order and urged everyone to not rush out to popular boating regions during the Memorial Day Weekend saying:


"If you don't live in these regions ... think long and hard before you take a trip into them," Whitmer said at the May 18 press conference.
"A small spike could put the hospital system in dire straits pretty quickly," she added later. "That's precisely why we're asking everyone to continue doing their part. Don't descend on Traverse City from all regions of the state."


Their second home is just 25 miles from Traverse City.

According to NorthShore Dock LLC owner, Tad Dowker her husband, however, thought he deserved to have his boat tended to before anyone else.


"This morning, I was out working when the office called me, there was a gentleman on hold who wanted his boat in the water before the weekend," Dowker posted. "Being Memorial weekend and the fact that we started working three weeks late means there is no chance this is going to happen."

"Well our office personnel had explained this to the man and he replied, 'I am the husband to the governor, will this make a difference?'"



Thus far Whitmer hasn't directly denied or confirmed this.

If anyone thinks that the rules apply to politicians and their families then those people are smoking the largest crack rock in the history of Illicit substances.

I'm interested in what she is going to say about this. That's assuming she doesn't make the dock owner's life miserable first for posting this on Facebook.

Some sort of political double speak.

Just keep in mind that her husband is more equal than most.

Yes, but thankfully, didn't the guy tell him it would NOT make a difference?

Hopefully, it actually put him at the bottom of the list, to get his boat out sometime mid August.

With leftist, it is always do as I say, not as I do...

Leftist politicians never see themselves as equals to the plebes. This is why even in socialist / communist countries you still have the "elites" who keep their wealth and don't have to "share and share alike" for the greater good.

Yes, he tried playing that card and the dealer (owner) denied him special treatment.

The headline on the article presented begins with the word Purported.

So the claim is from an office worker who then told the dock boss who then posted the ''purported'' request on facebook. It then somehow managed to catch the attention of Republican state leaders. . Did I read that chain of information correctly?

We have no real knowledge of just who was on the other end of the phone. We do know however that there are a number of people in that state who are not happy with the governor as demonstrated by some one hanging her in effigy a day or so ago as well as numerous other demonstrations against her and her state directives.

We also do not know the authenticity of the person who ''purportedly'' took the phone call and brought it to the attention of the dock boss. We also do not know the biases of the dock boss himself but we might guess how he leans by the fact that he even posted this ''purported' event on facebook.

Or then again the governors husband might just be a dumbass.

You used a lot of words, when all you really needed was the last sentence.

I remember when crack used to be legal and in every five and dime on the corner....those were the days.

(._.)

Just like those days when Governor Whitmer and her family were fair and unbiased.

I have to wonder. I get the impression she is the alpha dog in that relationship but I'm just guessing. So I wonder that she had not laid down the law with her husband to toe the line. With all the hatred she has been receiving from not only her state but the president as well, and all the media coverage centered on her, just how stupid it would be to attempt to do this. I mean just how big is that dock and wouldn't the dock boss know that the governors bot be moored there? One might suspcet that the office staff would also.

So for the governors husband to try to get his boat in the water by pulling strings just makes no sense to me, knowing all the scrutiny that is focused on them at this time. It just doesn't add up.

What makes a higher sense is that this call was just a person pretending to be the governors husband to give her a bad news event.

I don't know if they're smoking it or not, but they're definitely trying to defeat Trump with it.

Democrats don't need to obey the rules because they have a (D) after their names.

It's the 2-tiered justice system.

Kind of reminds me of Chris Christy closing the beach, then sitting his fat ass right in the middle of it......

"Do as I say, not as I do" couldn't be more on display for the entitled governor's family right now. The fact it's been crickets from her about it so far should ram home the point that she thought he could get away with it.

I would think this might have been a hoax or whatever had it not been for the fact she has known about this Facebook allegation for a couple of days and the only response was from her spokesperson:


Our practice is not to discuss the governor’s or her family’s personal calendar/schedules. And we’re not going to make it a practice of addressing every rumor that is spread online.


Why would she let a lie, where even the State Legislature is now involved, go unanswered if her husband didn't at least go to their Traverse City home this weekend to boat?

But I'm sure we will get more info...

There has also been some questions regarding her husband's dental practice since she asked for non emergency medical procedures to stop to conserve masks and gloves and to comply with the social distancing...

So, I'm sure there is more to come out about this family.

It's also quite possible the initial boat dock worker who answered the phone didn't know Marc Mallory was the husband of Gretchen Whitmer as they don't share the same surname.
