GA's First Lady Suggests Stacey Abrams Is Unfit to 'Take Good Care' of the Governor's Mansion

Georgia’s First Lady Sandra Deal Suggests Stacey Abrams Is Unfit to ‘Take Good Care’ of the Governor’s Mansion
By Tanasia Kenney -
November 7, 2018


Georgia first lady Sandra Deal is facing backlash for the racist dog whistle heard ’round Georgia Tuesday night as Americans tuned in to watch the nail-biting results of the 2018 midterm elections.

During her comments, Sandra Deal suggested Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams wouldn’t “take good care” of the Governor’s Mansion. (Twitter video screenshot)

Deal and her husband, Gov. Nathan Deal, were among the crowd of fellow Republican supporters who attended gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp‘s watch party in Athens as the results of the hotly contested elections continued pouring in. Kemp, who’s Georgia’s Secretary of State, faced off against Democrat Stacey Abrams in a race that was still too close to call as of Wednesday morning.

With the results still up in the air, Deal addressed Kemp supporters Tuesday to keep them encouraged in the long night ahead. Her “pep talk” didn’t blow over well, however.

“We are just so thankful for all of you who have supported Brian and his family,” Georgia’s first lady told the crowd. “I really want a family in the mansion to take good care of it.”


Outrage ensued, as critics wasted no time calling out what they perceived to be a racist dog whistle.

“We see through her coded language,” one woman wrote on Twitter.

“I’m white and I heard that bullhorn,” a man replied.

“I’m white, vote Republican and even I heard that,” another voter chimed in. “Disgusting. I disagree with Abrams on just about everything, but she can take care of that house just fine by herself.”

2. Abrams would take care of the people and give half

a million Georgians health care. Racist Deal doesn't give a fuck about ordinary folk who don't share her privileges.

3. Occasionally, they slip up and say in public what they say in private.

7. My thought exactly.

It apparently was OK with certain white folk when "those people" were slaves and/or servants, but gawd forbid, they had the keys to the place.

How unbelievably racist and disgusting by Ms. Deal.

8. She's better qualified and educated than white winger Nathan Deal.

BRW, Mrs. Deal, try to put up some better Christmas decorations this year than those drab white light you’ve strung up for past 7 years.

12. Talk about being unsuited to elevated position.

Mrs. Deal is outclassed by a souvenir bottle opener.

13. Don't such mansions have a staff to take care of it and put up decorations?

Not like the governor mops and waxes floors.

14. Its been a hard day for me in GA, the constant disrespect we face knows no bounds

These racist bastards need to die off. There is no changing their minds. I am so disgusted by them.

I am so disappointed that Stacy did not pull this off. I am not even sure if we didn't. I don't trust that Kemp did not cheat his way to a win. On a brighter note. I am happy that Lucy McBath beat Karen. So some progress was made last night. Sigh, so far to go though.

15. I'm sickened by the confederate flags and license plates

I still see. The racists imagine themselves living well in the antebellum south, not realizing that even amongst whites, many were dirt poor, but could think of themselves as being better.

17. An absolute lack of class

Racism is ugly and reveals how morally bankrupt and lacking in sophistication this woman is. Ms. Abrams has more class in the tip of her little finger than that biddy has in seven generations of her family. Hey Sandy! Bless Your Heart...
