CNN is now telling us that Michigan is in fact Minnesota. When reporting that some businesses in Michigan can now reopen, the cable network used a map that incorrectly labeled The Wolverine State as Minnesota. If President Trump had made the same mistake, CNN would be calling Trump a murderer for incorrectly telling Minnesotans that it was now safe to reopen their businesses. It's only fair, then, that we highlight CNN's struggles with geography.

(Also, some businesses did NOT open up here in Michigan/Minnesota/whatever - only business Whitmer untethered was lawn care companies - they don't have storefronts) pic.twitter.com/AZIMNKaVcX

Gov. Whitmer extended her stay-at-home order through May 15th but loosened some of her more draconian restrictions, like her ban on purchasing harmless items like garden seeds and paint. She also allowed a very limited number of businesses, like bicycle repair shops and plant nurseries, to reopen.
