Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) said on Thursday that she hopes to ease her strict stay-at-home order by the end of the month, and allow gatherings of 10 or more people.

Whitmer did not offer specific data, nor any insight on the state’s system for providing unemployment benefits, which has run into logistical issues during this pandemic.

While her constituents grow frustrated at Gov. Whitmer’s lack of transparency, the Michigan Democrat says that statewide protests are “violent,” “racist,” and “misogynistic.”

Gov. Whitmer continues to inject herself into the national spotlight, as a favorite of the cable news circuit, while she lobbies to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential candidate.
