Stacey Abrams beat up GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler for putting the interests of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell above the needs of the fighting Americans.
"They are moronic hypocrites who would rather win an election than help the people of Georgia," Abrams said, citing the flip-flop of the two GOP senators seeking re-election in next week's runoff elections.
She added, "They are spineless and they are people who turn to Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, which means they will not serve the people of Georgia."

They are moronic hypocrites who would rather win an election than help the people of Georgia and get their job done. These are two people who stood by, used the pandemic to benefit, and used the pandemic as an excuse for inaction. You have attacked the core issues that people need. You need unemployment insurance because your job is no longer there. You need this direct payment of $ 2,000 because your mortgage is still owed even though you cannot go to work. What they have done is a clear signal to the Georgians and the Americans that they have no position. You are without a backbone. And they are people who bow down to Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, which means they will not serve the people of Georgia.
Perdue and Loeffler are nothing but Trump henchmen
Democratic Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock have been calling on lawmakers for months to pass laws that will bring significant relief to millions of struggling Americans. They have not previously obtained approval from Donald Trump or Mitch McConnell.
David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, however, were against stimulus checks before finally speaking out in favor of them. It's a prime example of how driven they are by Trump's interests over those of their constituents.
Whether Perdue or Loeffler advocate higher stimulus payments is currently irrelevant. What matters is that they lose the next week's runoff, so Mitch McConnell is no longer the Senate majority leader.
Only in this way can the American people be sure that meaningful help is on the way.
