WATCH: Transgender Health Secretary Squirm to Justify Limitless BLM Protests While Standing by COVID-19 Restrictions For Small Businesses
Pennsylvania’s Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine is the first transgender individual who has been appointed to a Pennsylvania Cabinet position.
I don’t even understand how this guy is even in charge of anything health related because he is obviously mentally unstable since he thinks that he’s a woman. He’s really touchy about it, too.
Once a reporter kept calling him “sir” by mistake. At least, he says it was a mistake.
The incident happened while KDKA-AM personality Marty Griffin was asking a question about what the state’s “end game” is for reopening after the coronavirus, according to the Pennsylvania Capital-Star.
A Pittsburgh City Paper transcript shows Griffin called Levine “sir” in both his initial question and follow-up, leading her to tell him “please don’t misgender me,” and that it was “really insulting.”
Griffin later apologized on Twitter and said distractions caused him to use the wrong pronouns.
I apologize. I apologized twice. I truly did. It was not intentional. It was not. I was not focused. I was doing six things at once. https://t.co/cdBO9r1iF8

Anyway, he was confronted by a reporter about the hypocrisy we’re seeing with the protests/riots and the ordering of businesses and gathering to shut down and be severely limited. We’re seeing thousands of people at these protests/riots and they’re not saying a word about COVID-19, but some businesses and churches are limited to how many people they can have at once.
“Can you clarify the administration’s position. May 11 business owners were called cowards for wanting to reopen their businesses, and today the governor is actually marching in that. Is that not in violation of your order and his order for large gatherings?” the reporter asked.
Dr. Levine responded,
“The governor has always said that people have the right to protest and to demonstrate and the right of free speech.”
“And so overall, we want large gatherings — such as maybe a party or some type of concert — to be under 250 people. But we are not restricting people’s right to protest.”
“There are obviously significant social issues, you know, that are present that people feel that they need to have a voice, and so the governor is always supportive of that and is participating in that and is participating in that.”
This is why you have reporters at press conferences. Levine is asked about @GovernorTomWolf calling officials coward and then marching today in Harrisburg. Wait for the end. pic.twitter.com/6VkaYyMpwr

This is hypocrisy at it’s finest.
