Sean Hannity ripped Joe Biden, Stacey Abrams, Major League Baseball, and other “spineless corporations” for lying about Georgia’s Voting Security Bill and leading a boycott that will cost the Peach State at least $100 million in lost revenue.
“Major League Baseball, along with Joe Biden and Stacey Abrams, have completely embarrassed themselves. The MLB is now moving the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver,” said Hannity.
“Both states allow votes by mail, and Colorado also has a voter ID requirement. What message is MLB sending to Georgia? Joe Biden, Stacey Abrams, Baseball, Delta, Coca Cola, they all lied about the election laws,” he added. “Every person in Georgia should be furious with Biden, Abrams, Major League Baseball, and 200 spineless corporations for amplifying these lies,” he added.

ATLANTA SPIRALS: Mayor Attacks the Governor for Sending in National Guard to Protect Monuments
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms attacked Georgia Governor Brian Kemp for his decision to deploy 1,000 troops to protect monuments in her city; saying she never asked for the help despite weeks of civil unrest.
“The irony of that is that I asked Governor Kemp to allow us to mandate masks in Atlanta and he said no,” Bottoms said. “But he has called in the National Guard without asking if we needed the National Guard.”

“We are shooting each other up on our streets in this city. And you shot and killed a baby,” Bottoms said during a press conference on Sunday. “An 8-year-old baby. We are doing each other more harm than any police officer on this force.”

HAPPY NOW? Georgia Officials Say MLB’s Decision to Ditch Atlanta Will Cost Local Businesses $100 Million

“In the initial stages of the pandemic, many Cobb hotels saw single digit occupancy numbers,” said the CEO of Cobb Travel and Tourism. “The 8,000-plus contracted hotel room nights that will not actualize as a result of the MLB All-Star Game relocation will have a negative impact on Cobb’s hospitality industry and other local businesses, further delaying recovery.”
“We are proud of the work that many community partners have dedicated to planning the All Star Game activities. And we will continue, as we always do, to show who we are in Cobb through our outreach, customer service and hard work,” she added.
Former President Donald Trump called for a nationwide boycott of MLB and other “woke” companies who are trying to “interfere with free and fair elections.”
Governor Brian Kemp called-out critics and “woke” businesses over the weekend for leading a nationwide effort to boycott the Peach State’s latest Voting Security Bill; saying he will not apologize for “making it easy to vote and hard to cheat.”
“I let the legislators speak for themselves, but I know for myself and our team, I realize that people have all kinds of different opinions and beliefs about the 2020 election. There were issues that happened,” said Governor Kemp.
“There were issues that needed to be fixed. There are reasons to try and figure out a better way for us to hold elections. There’s nothing wrong with that. We shouldn’t apologize for wanting to make it easier to vote and harder to cheat,” he added.
