Don’t adjust your TV. You aren’t crazy.
Yes – the far-left hosts of “The View” actually got it right for once – slamming Democrat Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams after she took a photo while maskless in a room full of masked school children.
Abrams’ photo caused much controversy after it was circulated on social media on Monday.

Not Even ‘The View’ Can Stomach The Hypocrisy
Abrams visited Georgia’s Glennwood Elementary School, posting the pictures of herself smiling without a mask while surrounded by small children who are masked up, on Twitter before quickly taking them down after backlash ensued.
After getting well-deserved criticism, Abrams claimed that the criticism was a ‘false political attack’ during Black History Month:
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. Check out the @staceyabramsClick here to see the campaign response👇 pic.twitter.com/zOoTvkKKQg

“The View” co-host Joy Behar said Abrams should have “read the room.” Behar called Abrams “one of the most intelligent people in politics,” but said her maskless photo was in poor judgment.
Co-host Sunny Hostin even called out Abrams’ trying to insinuate the criticism was racial, saying, “this has nothing to do with Black History Month. The point is she was not wearing a mask when she is one of those proponents of mask mandates,” Hostin added.
They also laughed at Democratic Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti who, despite being required to wear a mask in the city, took an unmaskless photograph with Magic Johnson during the NFC Championship Game. What was his excuse? He said he “held his breath.”

Still – The GOP Is The Devil
Behar said, however that despite all the hypocrisy displayed by pro-mandate but sometimes maskless Democrat political leaders, anti-mandate Republican Governors still exist. Ron DeSantis was also a governor. Greg Abbott were still far more “destructive” than Abrams’ “slipping up.”
Hostin said that she “doesn’t necessarily believe that politicians are role models anymore.”
But that in her eyes Abrams still is a role model and that “you want better” from such role models.
