I’m tired of this church! Just when you didn’t think it could get any more ridiculous in these Georgia streets, Governor Brian Kemp has filed a lawsuit against Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms over her mask mandate.

Kemp tweeted:

This lawsuit is on behalf of the Atlanta business owners and their hardworking employees who are struggling to survive during these difficult times.

These men and women are doing their very best to put food on the table for their families while local elected officials shutter businesses and undermine economic growth.

Just like sending in the @GeorgiaGuard to protect those living in our capital city from crime and violence, I refuse to sit back and watch as disastrous policies threaten the lives and livelihoods of our citizens.

We will fight to stop these reckless actions and put people over pandemic politics.

Wearing a mask has absolutely nothing to do with what he tweeted.

Mayor Bottoms also took to Twitter with a few words:

3104 Georgians have died and I and my family are amongst the 106k who have tested positive for COVID-19. Meanwhile, I have been sued by @GovKemp for a mask mandate. A better use of taxpayer money would be to expand testing and contact tracing. #ATLStrong

She also pointed out our brilliant (sarcasm) is suing the Atlanta over recommended guidelines.

On July 6, Keisha Lance Bottoms revealed she tested positive for COVID-19.

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

SMH…
