Democrats were shaking their heads with rage.
An unforced error created a politically damaging image that could help sink the party in November.
And this Democrat’s apology just turned a giant scandal into Joe Biden’s worst nightmare.
Georgia gubernatorial candidate – and 2018 election liar – Stacey Abrams posted a picture of herself at an elementary school not wearing a mask surrounded by children all forced to wear face coverings.
This came as Democrat governors like New Jersey’s Phil Murphy admitted he could not produce data showing mask mandates in schools worked and the dam broke on blue states ending their COVID fascism.
As Florida Governor Ron DeSantis stated, it was the political science that changed meaning Democrats saw low poll numbers and tried to distance themselves from the lockdowns, mask mandates and vaccine passports the party supported for the last two years.
Abrams is running for governor of Georgia and knew she stepped in it.
So Abrams tried to apologize in an appearance on CNN.
“Yes. I will say this, I went to read to kids for an African American read-in day. I approached the podium with my mask on. I followed the protocols. I told the kids I’m taking my mask off because I’m reading to kids who are listening remotely as well, and we were socially distanced, the kids were socially distanced from me. I told them that’s what I was doing. And in the excitement after I finished because it was so much fun working with those kids, I took a picture. And that was a mistake,” Abrams said.
But in this supposed “apology” Abrams actually ended up digging an even deeper hole by supporting forced masking in schools.
“Unfortunately in Georgia, we’re not in a place where that conversation is ready because we have one of the lowest vaccination rates in the country.” Abrams added,”Right now that example is that we wear masks whereever possible but we recognize we can’t be hardline about this.”
If Democrats are running on mask mandates in schools this November their party faces a wipeout.
In the 2021 Virginia and New Jersey gubernatorial elections the vote shifted 13 points towards Republicans compared to 2020.
School closures and mask mandates played a huge role in driving this swing towards the GOP.
If a similar shift takes place across the board in 2022 Democrats face a massive red wave and Joe Biden will face substantial and hostile GOP majorities in both houses of Congress.
The Abrams photo was a disaster from the word go.
Even Abrams could figure it out.
Abrams quickly deleted the tweet of the photo where Abrams forced children to wear a mask while Abrams – who is morbidly obese and in a high-risk COVID category – refused to wear a mask.
Then Abrams’ campaign released a statement claiming her critics were racist.
When that failed to quell the storm, Abrams offered an even more damaging apology on CNN where Abrams essentially committed to permanent masking of children in Georgia schools.
