Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) dug in her heels on Friday on her stay-at-home order that has sparked protests from right-wingers in her state.

"You know, I can take it. If it makes people feel better to take their frustrations out on me, that's fine," she told "Good Morning America" anchor George Stephanopoulos. "All I ask is let's not get overly political here. Let's focus on the public health."

The governor recognized that her order comes with a price as people get laid off and children are prevented from going to school, but also that the order was necessary to protect Michiganders from the COVID-19 outbreak.
