Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams laughed when a show host cracked a joke about President Joe Biden having “Alzheimer’s.”

During an appearance on the 85 South Comedy Show, Abrams laughed when the host made fun of Biden for extending his arm to shake hands with someone, but no one was standing behind him while he was on stage last month.

“Biden has talked about what that vision looks like,” Abrams said.

The host interrupted Abrams, “He forgot it though – his (Biden’s) Alzheimer’s kicked in.”

Everyone laughed, including Abrams.

“He did! You didn’t see him? He was talking the other day and he turned around and there was nobody back there,” the host said, turning his chair around. “I’ll be damned! I thought somebody was behind me!”

“He was like “I’ll be damned, I’ll be damned. I thought somebody was behind me,'” the host said.

Abrams didn’t comment directly on the remark and redirected the conversation back to politics.

WATCH:

Earlier this week, Abrams was declared the winner of Georgia’s Democratic gubernatorial primary.

Abrams, who ran unopposed for the Democratic nomination for governor of the Peach State, lost a close race to Republican Brian Kemp in 2018.

Kemp won the Georgia GOP primary over former Republican Sen. David Perdue, setting up a rematch with Abrams in November’s general election.

Abrams came under fire earlier this week after she called Georgia the “worst state in the country to live in,” which did not sit well with voters who spoke with Fox News.

“Why does she think it’s the worst? Because she didn’t win the last election, I guess,” Larry, from Lawrenceville, said.

Chandra said Abram’s comments were “absolute nonsense.”

During a speech, Abrams said, “I’m running for governor because I know that we have to have a conversation about who we are in this state and what we want for each other and from each other.”

“I am tired of hearing about how we’re the best state in the country to do business when we are the worst state in the country to live,” she said, according to a tape published by the Gwinnett Daily Post.

Abrams acknowledged such a statement would be “politicized” and further explained that mental health and incarceration rates in her state could be improved significantly.

Brittany, who spoke with Fox News, also disagreed with Abrams’ assessment.

“I like that it’s a lot of Black people supporting Black people,” Brittany said. “I wouldn’t say it’s the worst place to live in.”

“Do you care about safety and your kids or do you care about stuff that’s none of your business?” Brittany added.

Nancy, from Lawrenceville, said the economy is her top priority.

Larry told Fox News: “Immigration’s one of the big ones. Price of gas is a really big one.”

Bob from Gainesville, Georgia, said “competence” is important to him.

“I’m a Trump guy, but I’m not going to vote for [former Sen. David] Perdue because I don’t think he’s as competent as Kemp,” Bob said. “I think Kemp has proven that he’s more competent as far as business goes, especially here in Georgia.”

“Everything stems from having good business. You get more jobs, you get better schools, you get a better tax base,” Bob continued. “I think the guy’s doing a great job, and I’m going to vote for him for sure.”

“At the end of the day, we’re looking for candidates that support our pro-life values, our values of having a good economy that everybody—that young people can thrive under,” Chandra said.

Many others slammed Abrams for her comments.

“Stacey Abrams may think differently, but I believe Georgia is the best state to live, work, and raise a family,” Kemp tweeted.

“Stacy, please, we beg you, move to California or something…,” tweeted LibertarianForever.

“Stacey Abrams, don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you,” tweeted Paul V Kelly Sr.
