Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer reverses course on Trump-touted coronavirus drugs.
The Whitmer administration has since removed the language threatening doctors from the letter and is now asking the federal government to send shipments of the drugs, Fox News reports.
The failed action of Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer continues.

Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration has requested an emergency supply of the drugs President Trump touted as having success treating patients with severe symptoms of the novel coronavirus, in a reversal from the state’s directive to medical professionals last week to avoid the medication for this purpose.
Michigan, this week, requested hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine from the Strategic National Stockpile for physicians to use to help treat patients with COVID-19, after the Food and Drug Administration over the weekend granted an emergency use authorization for the anti-malarial drugs.
But last week, Whitmer’s administration threatened physicians prescribing the drugs, saying they were subject to “administrative action” should they continue to use the medication. More
“Governor” Gretchen Whitmer is way in over her head.

Clueless Governor was probably against it only because President Trump was for it. See a pattern here? She would make the perfect VP candidate to go along with Joe Biden. Not a cogent thought between the two them or any record of accomplishment either.
Further proof that Gretchen ‘Half’ Whitmer is the perfect VP running mate for Joe ‘no mental acuity ‘ Biden. The #DoNothingDemocrats dream ticket, since together, they clearly could accomplish NOTHING!
