CORONAVIRUS/MICHIGAN/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer says she will not be bullied after a top coronavirus adviser to President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday [Nov. 15, 2020] that opponents of the governor’s new restrictions should ‘rise up.’
Shortly after Whitmer’s administration announced the new measures aimed at combating a surge in COVID-19 cases in the state, Dr. Scott Atlas took to Twitter to write: ‘The only way this stops is if people rise up. You get what you accept.’
Last month, the FBI said Whitmer was the target of a kidnapping plot by members of a militia group, allegedly in response to the Democratic governor’s virus-related lockdown orders this spring.
A few hours after his initial post, Atlas insisted he was not calling for violence.”
