The Facts

  • The Democratic gubernatorial candidate for Georgia faced backlash after posting the photos on social media.

The Spin

Right narrative

Abrams is just the latest in a string of left-wing politicians to flout mask restrictions. Her actions exemplify her hypocrisy and incompetence, as she fails to follow a strict mask policy that she herself has been vocally supporting.

Left narrative

Republicans are stirring up a false political attack. This is a non-story; she followed the regulations, removing her covering only for photos and speaking remotely to students. Her GOP opponent, meanwhile, conducted an entire school tour maskless last week.
