Stacey Abrams was criticized for a photograph showing her without a mask and being surrounded with a small class of children. It suggested that racism may be a factor in the photo.
Abrams visited Glennwood Elementary School outside of Atlanta this past week where she read a class of small children her book “Stacey’s Extraordinary Words.”
Stacey was revealed to be an extraordinary hypocrite shortly thereafter when school principal, Dr. Holly Brookins, posted four pictures of Abrams’ visit to the classroom on Twitter.
Three images of the Democrat were taken without a mask, despite a local mandate for masks that she championed.
Her entourage includes small children in masks.

Abrams’ campaign wasted no time injecting race into their damage control, issuing a statement suggesting critics were launching a partisan attack during Black History Month.
“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,” a statement reads.
“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.”
Our opponents took a brief break from licking Trump’s boots this weekend to issue baseless attacks, and it’s more of their typical dishonest, wannabe tough guy fodder to distract from their failures. You can see the @staceyabramsHere is the response to our campaign👇 pic.twitter.com/zOoTvkKKQg

Stacey Abrams spokeswoman said that the woman only did it in certain situations.
“She wore a mask to the event, and removed it at the podium so she could be heard by students watching remotely and for photos, but only with folks who were masked.”
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

It’s no doubt Democrats all believe it’s more critical for their elitist faces to be seen than that of children or the common person.
Abrams removed the tweet to indicate that she recognizes the issue with the image. Especially considering she has called Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp “incompetent” for moving to block local mask mandates.
When Kemp was attempting to ban mandates in July of 2020, Abrams said he was “following the lead of the incompetency and the immorality” of former President Donald Trump by refusing to acknowledge the danger he’s causing.
“Stacey Abrams wants state government mask mandates for Georgians and their children,” Kemp tweeted. “But it looks like they wouldn’t apply when she’s attending a photo op.”
Stacey Abrams demands that Georgians be given mandates by the state to cover up their government.

“This pathetic, transparent and silly attack is beneath anyone who claims he wants to lead Georgia,” the statement from Abrams’ camp adds, referencing Kemp.
Abrams is joining a growing number of Democrats that, after being caught, make outrageous excuses or attack critics.

California Governor Gavin Newsom was photographed separately with Johnson.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was caught partying maskless in Florida then claimed critics were just ‘sexually frustrated’ because they can’t date her.
If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet.
