Kelly Stafford said in her rant that she mostly felt for the small business owners. But retail businesses, salons, childcare and gyms were not affected by Whitmer’s order.

“So I’m going to be very blunt: I’m so over it. I’m over living in a dictatorship that we call Michigan. I understand there’s a pandemic, and I understand it’s very scary. I’m scared of it too. If you are at risk, do not leave your house until there’s a vaccine," sy het gese.

“But shutting down all these small businessesthings that people have worked their life forshutting them down again is not the answer, because they will not make it. So once we are able to leave our house, once this dictatorship decides to let us have some freedom, there will be nothing left.

“I’m just over it. I see all these people and it brings me, like, to tears. I — and believe me, I know there’s people out there that are stating, ‘That’s really ignorant of you. How could you say that?’ Listen, I know not everybody’s going to agree with me. Not everybody’s going to agree with my every move I make. That’s life, OK? We state our opinions, we move on.

“This is my opinion. I feel for these small businesses. It’s not that I don’t feel for people that have COVID, or the hospitals. Ek doen. But this is my opinion. I do not feel like — I do not like living in a place where they tell me what I can and cannot do. I live once. Weereens, this is my opinion. You have yours, everyone has their own, and we chalk it up to that.”
