How is this not the final straw? When will the American people take a bold stand against the criminal hypocrisy the Left is allowed to constantly get away with? Enough is enough; vote these people out immediately and never allow them any credibility whatsoever!
Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams drew criticism when she posed for a photo without a mask in a classroom of masked children.
Abrams was slammed on Sunday for what critics denounced as a hypocritical photo, particularly given the Democrat’s support for stringent COVID-19 protocols and some of her risk factors if she were to contract the virus.

Some said Abrams’s refusal to wear a mask for the photo was evidence she was part of the “Democratic elite,” many of whom have also been photographed maskless despite their support for strict COVID-19 guidelines.
Confirmation, if any were needed, that Stacey Abrams is a member of the Democratic elite in good standing—mask hypocrisy is practically a status symbol now https://t.co/piZCWAfdyS

Stacey Abrams wants state government mask mandates for Georgians and their children.
But it looks like they wouldn’t apply when she’s attending a photo op. https://t.co/A7H8U6eXKS

Others cited Abrams’s apparent risk factors as evidence she should have been made to wear a mask rather than the children.
Why is the one person who’s truly at risk of COVID-19 infection the only one not wearing a mask? Trust the science!!! pic.twitter.com/xQo4W3InNi

But Abrams pushed back on the criticism on Sunday, saying the attacks were “shameful.”
“It is shameful that our opponents are using a Black History Month reading event for Georgia children as the impetus for a false political attack. And it is pitiful and predictable that our opponents continue to look for opportunities to distract from their failed records when it comes to protecting public health during the pandemic.”

Abrams visited Glennwood Elementary School near Atlanta, Georgia, last week to help kick off the school’s third annual African American Read-in, then retweeted a picture posted by Glennwood principal Holly Brookins on Friday. The photo featured Abrams sitting among more than a dozen students without a mask, while all students and staff had masks on.
Abrams thanked Brookins in a quote tweet, describing the school’s staff as “spectacular, delightful and outstanding.” While Brookins and Abrams both deleted the original tweets, the photo quickly spread across the internet and drew criticism from conservatives.
Brookins deleted her account after her post went viral.
Abrams is running as the Democratic gubernatorial candidate in 2022 after her loss in 2018.
