One of those special things at this time of year is when kids get to meet with or get a call from Santa Claus.
Now that conversation is usually about Santa asking if they’ve been good this year or what they want for Christmas.
But this year, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer interfered in the normal tradition of childhood and used an imitation Santa Claus to tell little kids that they should follow her Wuhan coronavirus rules, saying Santa was “following the rules” and making sure that “he stayed safe and the elves stayed safe.”

I don’t know about those poor kids but if I look at her I think she looks creepy like Maleficent or Cruella de Vil, plus she has a really hard voice to take. The Santa looked like his beard wasn’t on right.
It would also appear they prompted the kids to ask about the coronavirus because six groups of little kids are not all going to be asking about coronavirus in their one opportunity to talk to Santa unless someone is telling them to do it.
They asked such things as if the virus had reached the North Pole. Santa said he wasn’t sure that it had gotten there but declared that even so, “When I’m in my workshop with all my elves, we all are masked up and social distancing.”
One little girl asked, “How can we keep people safe for Christmas?”
Santa told them that they should follow what their governor told them to do.
“What I would suggest to do is what the governor is telling all the people of the great state of Michigan to do: Social distance, wash your hands and make sure you wear your mask when you’re outside your home,” Santa added on the call.
They also told the kids that they should call relatives like their grandparents but that they should stay home and don’t go to see them if they wanted to be “safe.”
So what’s going to happen if the kids’ families actually have grandma and grandpa over after Whitmer’s Santa told them not to?
Many were not enthused with Whitmer inserting herself in the middle of a joyful holiday tradition and trying to use it to indoctrinate.

Whitmer is using Santa Claus to indoctrinate kids about the coronavirus.
Even the Grinch didn't stoop that low.https://t.co/wWMrdviRxd
