Just when you thought the leadership in the state of Michigan couldn’t get any more petty and snarky, they go an pull something like this.
After a barber in Michigan decided to go against Whitmer’s heavy-handed lockdown orders, her attorney general issued a catty response where she lashed out at the barber, calling him selfish and saying he’s not a hero or a patriot.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel castigated a 77-year-old barber who opened his shop in defiance of the state’s stay-at-home order by questioning his love for the United States.
“We’re not looking to throw people in jail,” Nessel said about Karl Manke, owner of Karl Manke’s Barber & Beauty Shop in Owosso, Michigan, who opened his doors last week despite a government order to remain closed. “That is, to me, a very, very, very last resort. We want him to discontinue his conduct, which we think is aiding and abetting in the spread of the virus.”
“Mr. Manke, he’s not a hero to me,” she added. “He’s not a patriot. A patriot is a person that fights all enemies, foreign and domestic, and does everything possible to protect his fellow countrymen and countrywomen. And to me, Mr. Manke is doing just the opposite of that, and he’s being selfish in his behavior in that what he’s doing is allowing the virus to spread.” [Washington Examiner]
AG @dananessel says she doesn't plan on arresting Owosso Barber Karl Manke, but she does have a message for him and his supporters.
"He's not a hero. He's not a patriot."

This is wrong on so many levels.
How dare these elected officials attack a man who just trying to get his livelihood back in this economy that they’ve devastated.
They should be ashamed of themselves.
