Whitmer called the protest in the state’s capital “irresponsible” during a Thursday night interview with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.

“We might have to actually think about extending stay-at-home orders, which is supposedly what they were protesting,” Whitmer said…

“When you see a, you know, a political rally — that’s what it was yesterday — a political rally like that, where people aren’t wearing masks, and they’re in close quarters, and they’re touching one another, you know that that’s precisely what makes this kind of a disease drag out and expose more people,” Whitmer said.
