Ignoring the guidelines from the CDC, Georgia lawmaker Vernon Jones launched himself into a crowd of Trump supporters. Riding a sea of red MAGA hats, packed tightly together, not a mask in sight.

As a Democratic politician, he voted for George W. Bush twice, and has announced his support for Trump earlier this year and even spoke for the president at the Republican National Convention in August. In his convention address, Jones accused fellow Democrats of not wanting “Black people to leave their mental plantation.”

Jones got flamed on Twitter, where folks pointed out how the United States currently experiencing another peak of infections everyday. Captain Coon doubled down on his foolishness in a tweet of his own

Republicans hope Jones, who was first elected to the Georgia state house in 1992, can help shore up the Black Republican vote in his state. Trump won Georgia from Hillary Clinton by more than five points in 2016, but recent polls show #45 is behind Joe Biden by almost one and a half points.
