Michigan Gov. Whitmer addresses report that husband name dropped her to get boat into water sooner
LANSING, Mich. – Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer addressed a controversial request by her husband, who reportedly name dropped Whitmer to try to get his boat out of storage and into the water sooner. Whitmer said her husband’s comments were a “failed attempt at humor.”“Obviously, with the motorized boating prohibition in our early days of COVID-19, he thought it might get a laugh,” Whitmer said. “It didn’t, and to be honest, I wasn’t laughing either when it was relayed to me, because I knew how it would be perceived. On Friday, she extended the state’s stay-at-home order until June 12.
