On Thursday, Tiffany said Palm should step down as leader of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services because of how she handled response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The state Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled 4-3 that Palm exceeded her authority with a stay-at-home order.
Evers called Tiffany's statement “insane” and said “I know you are better than this.”
