Protesters in Lansing, Michigan — who oppose Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order to slow down the spread of the deadly coronavirus — told Fox News that they want to be free to buy fertilizer for their lawns and get their hair done at a salon.
Some of the protesters also shouted “lock her up!” outside the Michogan State Capitol building about Whitmer, which is a throwback to 2016 when mobs also shouted ‘lock her up!” at the mention of Hillary Clinton during Trump rallies.
Protesters also shouted “Half White,” which is President Donald Trump’s ugly nickname for Whitmer.
Half protest, half Trump rally is how I would characterize #OperationGridlock in Michigan. Protesters echo “Half Whit”nickname @realDonaldTrump bestowed on Gov. Whitmer, call on her to reopen the economy. pic.twitter.com/ui8Y4JFVDS— Malachi Barrett (@PolarBarrett) April 15, 2020
