“The View” hosts called out Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams during Monday’s broadcast after she was caught maskless in a room of masked children.

The photographs of Abrams were taken as she was visiting Glennwood Elementary School. Abrams initially posted the pictures to Twitter before quickly deleting them and issuing a statement, framing the backlash as a false political attack during Black History Month.

During a panel discussion on ABC’s hit show, co-host Joy Behar argued against Abrams’ statement, saying Abrams should have “read the room.” Behar said she was surprised by Abrams’ choice to pose maskless with the children, as she considers Abrams “one of the most intelligent people in politics.”

Fellow panelist Sunny Hostin called Abrams’ statement “hypocritical … 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.”

Behar quickly attempted to pivot the ladies by claiming that the attitudes of Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott are far more “destructive” than Abrams’ “slipping-up.”
