When Donald Trump stepped off the plane in Atlanta last week, he was, of course, not wearing a mask. Brian Kemp was, but immediately removed it in deference to his Dear Leader. A few days later, Kemp filed suit against the City of Atlanta to overturn its mandatory mask ordinance, in direct contravention of medical best practice and basic common sense.
Rather than demonstrate support of his state’s citizens in their efforts to contain this deadly virus, Georgia’s governor has instead pinned his partisan tin star to the benighted individual who is clearly on a cognitive and political death spiral.
When Kemp seeks reelection, voters will remember that currying favor with the ever-fickle Trump mattered more to him than saving our lives.
