FNC’s Carlson: ‘Gretchen Whitmer Is a Ghoul’

Not only has Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) been one of the most outspoken opponents of President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic, she has also been one willing to use the powers of government to impose her will on citizens in the name of preventing the spread of the crisis. One such example highlighted by Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson during his Friday program is deeming joint replacement surgery an “elective procedure” but not abortion. According to Carlson, Whitmer’s decisions have been based on politics and ideology, not science.
