In Brief: 

On Sunday, footage revealed that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been vacationing maskless in Florida. She was shown maskless while waving to a large group at a drag bar. She was also photographed sitting with her boyfriend maskless. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez has regularly ridiculed the state of Florida and Governor Ron DeSantis for its COVID-19 policies that allow more freedom for citizens to make more of their own health decisions and move about the state.

The Background: 

Many Democrats, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have ridiculed Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida for his COVID-19 policies. 

But this week, Ocasio-Cortez was spotted vacationing there maskless.

She was spotted waving to a crowd at a drag queen event and sipping drinks with her boyfriend in Miami.

Gov. DeSantis called her trip hypocrisy saying, “I think a lot of Floridians will say ‘wait a minute, you're bashing us because we're not doing your draconian policies and yet we're the first place you want to flee to...to be able to enjoy life.’”

AOC fired back at a critic’s opinion on her boyfriend’s shoes by accusing Republicans of wanting to date her: “'If Republicans are mad they can't date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend's feet. Ya creepy weirdos.”

Notable Quotes: 

“For those of you with zero sense of humor: the whole point of this post is to expose hypocrisy. We don’t actually care she’s maskless. We care she fear mongers about Florida but then has the audacity to vacation here.” - Brendon Leslie, journalist
