The free state of Florida has made a brand new fan out of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who’s beginning her 2022 on Sunshine State seashores.
As reported by OutKick’s Joe Kinsey, Ocasio-Cortez was lately seen on trip in Florida previous to New Year’s Eve, evading her residence state of New York, which stays slowed down by COVID restrictions. That she endorses.
AOC continued her getaway journey by visiting a crowded drag bar on Sunday. Video emerged displaying the congresswoman breaking character from the Democratic playbook of double masking and bumping elbows.
Without regard for masking or distancing, AOC celebrated the night amongst crowds of patrons in a first-rate snapshot of the Dems’ “rules for thee, but not for me” M.O.
Per The Daily Mail‘s reporting, “The ‘Squad’ member has staunchly supported masks and vaccine mandates since the start of the pandemic.”
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis delivered a sly response to AOC’s hypocritical cameo on Thursday.
“We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to @RonDeSantisFL’s leadership,” DeSantis’ social media account tweeted. “P.S. We recommend the Rock Shrimp Roll and the Aoki Tai the next time you decide to dine in Miami. Cheers!”
Back in AOC’s New York, Governor Kathy Hochul has upheld COVID restrictions at the same time as extra therapeutics are on the best way following FDA approval. The governor’s distribution plan has caught flak for prioritizing ‘non-White’ sufferers because of “systemic inequities.”
New York’s caste system between vaccinated and unvaccinated residents has been supported by politicians like AOC, making her look on the unmasked, undistanced Florida gathering a hiccup in her messaging.
OutKick founder Clay Travis reported that the so-called “winter of severe illness” promoted by Democrats has been a breeze again in Florida.
