CNN Refuses to Ask Gretchen Whitmer About Her Order That Killed Nursing Home Residents

On Tuesday morning’s New Day, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota brought on Michigan’s Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer to spread Democratic propaganda. Camerota did not ask Whitmer about her lethal order to send recovering patients to nursing homes or about how she marched with Black Lives Matter protesters in violation of her own coronavirus orders. Instead, Camerota chose to lob her softball questions and to blame Michigan’s young people, anti-shutdown protesters, and President Trump for Michigan’s struggles with coronavirus.

Camerota began the interview by blaming young people for the spread of coronavirus in Michigan:

Michigan is seeing a rise in coronavirus cases, leading the governor to reverse plans to reopen some businesses. Scenes like this over this weekend not helping. This is a crowded lake party without social distancing or masks. There are hats, but that doesn’t protect you. Joining us now, Michigan’s Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer. Governor, great to see you. What did you think when you first saw that video of the lake party over the weekend?…Why are those young people at that party not getting the message that they are putting themselves in danger and putting their, obviously, older relatives in danger? What’s wrong in the messaging in Michigan?

If Camerota was not trying to make a governor from her party look good, she would have asked why Whitmer sent recovering COVID patients to nursing homes. The deadly order resulted in over a third of the state’s 6,225 coronavirus deaths, which places the state at 7th in deaths among all states. The order was so deadly because it ignored all scientific fact about the virus. The partying young people which Camerota tried to use to absolve Whitmer with have a mortality rate of .02%. The mortality rate for the virus is 10.4% for those between the ages of 65 to 74, 20.8% for those 75 to 84, and 30.1% for those over 85.

As a Democrat, Camerota does not care about these facts. She cares about Joe Biden winning the presidency, and Whitmer is the National Co-Chair for the Biden campaign.

Ignoring deadly nursing home orders is nothing new to Camerota, as she refused to question New York’s Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo about the grisly results of his nursing home order on New Day. That policy resulted in as many as 12,000 COVID deaths in nursing homes. It seems that Camerota is more interested in protecting Democrats than seeking accountability for families who lost loved ones to coronavirus because of the disastrous policies of those Democrats.

The hack then sympathized with Whitmer for people protesting her stay-at-home order: “You say that you took a lot of heat for the — what people thought were, you know, sort of rigid shutdowns that you had done — so much so that people with guns — armed people were showing up in public spaces like, you know, the State House and stuff. Was that a nerve-racking time?”

Whitmer, who has had no trouble politicizing the pandemic, shamelessly replied: “I think that the most nerve-racking aspect to this whole public health crisis is the fact that it’s become political. Lives will have been lost because of the politics around what should just be a public health crisis.”

Of course, Camerota just accepted Whitmer’s response and did not press her about marching with the BLM protesters in Detroit. Whitmer condemned the anti-lock down protests because they violated her COVID guidelines, but then violated those same guidelines when she joined the far-left demonstrators. At the protests, there was little social distancing and many did not wear masks. As a Democratic shill, Camerota would never call Whitmer out on her hypocrisy.

Per a typical Democrat, Camerota also tried to blame Trump for Whitmer’s failure:

You’ve talked about how, you know, the national — President Trump, at the national level, hasn’t provided enough support, you think. What are you looking for now from the White House?

Camerota has no interest in being an objective journalist. Perhaps she should quit pretending to be one and join Whitmer on the Biden campaign.
