Stacey Abrams fires back at GOP senator about voting rights

During a Senate Judiciary hearing about voting rights, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) pressed Stacey Abrams on Georgia’s new and controversial elections law that was passed after then-President Donald Trump called into question the credibility of the state’s 2020 election results. There was no evidence of widespread voter fraud found in Georgia.

  2. Mike Thompson on April 30, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    So because the bill can possibly effect the voting of all races, it is RACIST!

    Stacey Abrams educating John Kennedy. He seems a little thick headed.

  5. terry lunsford on April 30, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    Whats with all these commenters hung up on skin color ? Nobody cares what color you are, well at least the people I hang with.

    Tell me you’re racist without telling me you’re racist

  7. Scott Deaton on April 30, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Senator Kennedy made a huge(see what I did there?) mistake here, he didn’t send Stacey lunch.

  10. stacey cross on April 30, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    He’s on the backfoot from the start – hard to argues something is not racist when it’s so obvious it is

  11. Ginny Murray on April 30, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Abrahms objections to the bill are absolutely ridiculous. She wants the covid changes in voting to go on forever because it makes / made cheating easier. Period. Nothing to do with race, that is a cheesy excuse.

  12. terry lunsford on April 30, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Really how is she giving anyone a voice that doesn’t already have one ? I’m all for equal rights but I haven’t seen or heard anything she has said that is rooted in racism.

  13. Nyankana on April 30, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    This guy is annoying af. Stop. Interrupting people whey they speak!! He needs to seriously learn some manners, and it doesn’t matter whether he is old or not

    Stacey, the “all natural” arousal inhibitor.🙀

  16. plunkc on April 30, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    He’s not use to someone smarter than him.

  17. Patrick Brady on April 30, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    She is a natural leader and she has incredible control. I know I wouldn’t be able to put up with Senator Kennedy’s constant interruption and talking down

  18. Mike Thompson on April 30, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    I watched the entire hearing. It was pretty obvious Senator Kennedy exposed the bias of of that beastly Abrams

  19. Kamaka Kaitoku on April 30, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    🤣🤣🤣. She stupid. How is any of that racist?

  20. Merrit Muse on April 30, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Stacey made Georgia howl again

  21. Bri on April 30, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Wow he is a proper a$$hole that is just cutting Ms. Abrams off every time she answers a question.

  22. LifeandSituations on May 1, 2021 at 12:01 am

    What the he!! Does he not understand!

  23. Alex Reyes on May 1, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Someone explain to me how requiring ID to vote (like every single 1st world developed country does) is illegal and racist?

    Old fool doesn’t understand anything but his own racist agenda

  26. Automatic Systematic on May 1, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Ernest Goes To Washington DC: could barely differentiate his deliberate constant interruption of Abrams from "Vern? Vern!"

  27. stu beast on May 1, 2021 at 12:06 am

    Stacy needs to back up from the buffet.

  28. Wussy Grabbing Birther on May 1, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Republican F-Ker keeps interrupting Stacey Abrams. How rude! A rude dude!

    Stacey cost her constituents in Georgia an awful lot of money just for being stupid. Who the hell paid these liberals off cause nobody is that stupid.

  31. Terry Brinkley on May 1, 2021 at 12:13 am

    She’s a witch.

  32. Santos Carreon on May 1, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Aunt jemima should go back to COMMERCIALS

  33. Edgar Orozco on May 1, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Stacey you got owned period

  34. terry lunsford on May 1, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Stacy : "I’m an attorney and former legislature. Kennedy : I’m an attorney and CURRENT legislature. Priceless.

  35. Navi Vargas on May 1, 2021 at 12:17 am

    He needs to shut up and let her talk….

  36. Maria Millan Freyre on May 1, 2021 at 12:20 am

    He’s disgusting

  37. Santos Carreon on May 1, 2021 at 12:22 am

  38. Carolyn Brown on May 1, 2021 at 12:23 am

    She made him look like an absolute fool!

  39. Bruce Nome on May 1, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Thank you Stacy Abrams

  40. A C Powell on May 1, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Stacey Abrams is, in fact, Captain America!

  41. Christian Marris on May 1, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Jesus I wish these idiots from Louisiana would get rid of this man!

  42. terry lunsford on May 1, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Isn’t this the same lady who got MLB to move their All star game from her state which is 32% Black to a state that is 4% Black ? She sure must be smart.

  43. Boris K on May 1, 2021 at 12:31 am

    This i why I appreciate this woman she is poised and respectful and has a great control of her emotions. People like Candace Owens should learn from her it is not because you Have a point or make a strong case against others that you should yell and get contentious even if they do … I think this woman is going places!

  44. Melvin Davis on May 1, 2021 at 12:31 am

    The Republican’s ""EINSTEIN / WOODY ALLEN"",, can’t hang with the Supremely Intelligent Stacey Abrams!! ""DROP THE MIC "" Stacey!!

  45. Paul Kamin on May 1, 2021 at 12:33 am

    2:39 is the moment this dude knew who he was up against. Saying “I get the idea” before she even finished answering shows that he’s not interested in answers, he’s just trying to produce a “gotchya” moment, and that first attempt failed hard

  46. Norval Henderson on May 1, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Stacy Abrams wants everybody to be able to vote the state of Georgia which is the reason she supported a long line of buses of voters from Kentucky and Tennessee to vote and the runoff senate election in Georgia.

  47. GLORIA GUTIERREZ on May 1, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Why keep on interrupting. Very stupid Grandpop. You got your point Ms Stacey. You are great.

  48. Grace M on May 1, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Awww God Bless you ! We have to look to God from where our help will come . So sorry your family have endured racism because it really hurts 😞 but God sees us all the same because he made us all .
    ❤️People should be judged by the content of their character! Not the color of their skin . God will surely have the final say ! All will be well in the Mighty Name of Jesus Amen 🙏 Hugs ❤️❤️❤️

  49. Matt Gagnon on May 1, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Complexity is apparently a platitude. When you can’t think beyond a yes or no, you should realize that you’re not made for governing or dealing with complex issues.

  50. Ralph Jackson on May 1, 2021 at 12:34 am

    That’s one strong powerfull woman. Love her.
