In an appearance on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell, the purported runway supermodel, and would-be Joe Biden VP candidate, ripped both Kemp and President Trump on the mask issue. The typically hysterical O’Donnell teed it up for Abrams’ criticism, which is obviously standard operating procedure for the media-Democrat echo chamber.
“From the beginning of this catastrophe, Brian Kemp has demonstrated he has absolutely no competency in this process. This is the same man who didn’t understand weeks after the world knew that asymptomatic people could spread the disease. He has thwarted the attempt of the mayor of Savannah, the first mayor to issue this edict recently, saying that if you’re going to come to Savannah, you’ve got to wear a mask.
“The mayor of Atlanta followed, saying if you are going to be at Hartsfield-Jackson airport, you should have to wear a mask. What he continues to do is downplay not only the challenge to Georgians but the deaths of Georgians. More than 3,000 Georgians have perished, disproportionately black and brown Georgians, and he continues to fiddle while Rome burns. This is not a man who is capable of leadership, but he is following the lead of the incompetency and the immorality of the president of the United States.”
Next to Hillary Clinton, Stacey Abrams is perhaps the biggest sore election loser in America.
And especially in an election year, when Democrats talk about protecting public health, your BS detector should be alerting.
Moreover, Kemp’s 41-page executive order contains many restrictions, and it also strongly encourages Georgia residents and visitors to wear face coverings in public.

A champion of identity politics, Abrams served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017 and was minority leader in that chamber from 2011 to 2017. Republican Kemp defeated her in the state’s 2018 in the gubernatorial election.
Since then, she has floated fantasy theories of voter suppression, among other complaints. Abrams never officially conceded the election to Kemp.
Very difficult to please and definitely not a fan of voluntary compliance, Abrams has consistently criticized Trump’s response to the coronavirus pandemic as well as Kemp’s original plan to reopen the state for business.
Medical authorities have issue inconsistent statements about the efficacy of masks. Back in March, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who seems to spend a lot of time on TV rather than in the lab, said that there was no need for Americans to be walking around with masks.
COVID positives are reportedly surging in Georgia, with about 3,800 new cases emerging yesterday. The fatality rate across American has dropped dramatically, however, which the fear-mongering media is underreporting. Inflated or inaccurate COVID-positive statistics might also be in play.

Although Twitter, as expected, immediately climbed aboard the pro-Abrams, anti-Kemp bandwagon, some users dissented. Here is a sample.
Stacey Abrams has literally accomplished nothing, and became a liberal darling for doing it.
It's a perfect reflection of voting Democrat. Vote for things that are proven to not work, over and over again.
Even the Left's winners are losers.

Stacey Abrams is beyond useless. She lost her election and still isn’t over it.

She’s still not a leader of anything, right? Just checking.

He probably thinks it’s up to his citizens to make their own choices about their lives, instead of being an authoritarian.

Has anyone else gotten this much run for losing? She’s prob a great person but I guess we have to be all in on Stacy since the dream ticket of her and Andrew Gillum won’t ever happen. Wonder what she would be doing diff about the violence etc popping off in Atlanta?
