Ted Cruz retweeted this fake meme about Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and added his own comment:

Gov. Whitmer responded:

"Hello Senator! This photo is from January of 2019, and is being misused to spread fear and anger. I know you would never intentionally mislead the public during a pandemic, so I'm hopeful you'll correct this mistake as soon as possible. Stay safe, & Happy Easter from Michigan."

He deleted the tweet, but as you see, everyone grabbed screenshots.
