“Profile in courage” reward… The sole name is contrary to the whole of Gretchen’s personality…

“When Michigan’s first cases of COVID-19 were identified in early March 2020, Governor Gretchen Whitmer invoked emergency powers in a bid to contain the spread of the virus and save lives, issuing early, controversial orders to close schools and businesses, mandate mask-wearing, and ban large gatherings, among other measures,” the JFK Library said in a statement explaining why Whitmer was given this honor.
“While her leadership earned praise from many, she also faced sustained, vocal backlash over stay-at-home rules that remained in place as COVID-19 cases in Michigan continued to rise during the spring,” the statement continued. “Protests over Whitmer’s pandemic response became increasingly threatening, with armed demonstrators surrounding and at one point storming the state capitol to demand an end to stay-at-home orders. In October, thirteen men were charged with a June 2020 plot to kidnap Whitmer.”
“The men were said to be motivated at least in part by anger and resentment over pandemic restrictions,” the JFK Library added. “Despite violent threats against her life, Whitmer did not back down. She stayed focused on following the science and listening to public health experts to get the pandemic under control and start rebuilding Michigan’s economy.”

Having in mind that Governor Whitmer became infamous, firstly during the COVID handling situation, because of her very VERY strict rules, and now, because of the whole “Florida and her daddy incident”, the JFK is probably “tone deaf” regarding all of this…
“I actually understand that this is one of many awards that our governor has been winning recently. I heard that she’s recently won two job creator jobs awards in Ohio and Indiana and the number one real estate developer in Florida,” James joked in his appearance at Fox&Friends.
“And when you talk about profiles in courage, people who will put themselves in harm’s way to do the right thing versus a politician who maybe is under draconian orders that have sacrificed livelihoods and lives, it looks politically motivated at worst, and tone-deaf at best,” he added. “There are a lot of people who are struggling around Michigan.”
And guess in his opinion who’s the real and only one deserving the reward?
“Governor Ron DeSantis is a military veteran. He understands what it’s like to make life-and-death decisions,” James said. “He’s not one of these other politicians who moved through this COVID crisis, through polling and panic. I believe that we need more leaders like this. And I think that that’s how you prevent this from happening.”
