Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) suggests criticism of her gallivanting maskless in Florida is due to sexually frustrated Republicans who want to date her.
The New York Democrat’s Twitter rant was sparked by outrage that she had decided to vacation in the Sunshine State despite surging record numbers of COVID cases in New York.
The blue and red states symbolize the difference between left-wing and right-wing ideologies, with New York implementing some of the most draconian pandemic measures while Florida represents freedom from lockdowns and mandates.
An image surfaced on Friday of Ocasio-Cortez and her boyfriend dining maskless in Miami as cases in her district were soaring, choosing to vacation in Florida rather than say, another blue state.
Amidst the outrage, former Trump campaign advisor Steve Cortes took a jab at AOC’s boyfriend’s “hideous sandals” and “pale feet” in the image that had surfaced.
After pointing out that the Squad member’s trip shows a realization that mandates don’t work, Cortes joked that “her guy is showing his gross pale male feet in public (not at a pool/beach) with hideous sandals.”
While the focus had clearly wandered with Cortes’ tweet, AOC leaped upon it to castigate all of her critics as sexually frustrated Republicans who want 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,” she tweeted.
Showing all the maturity of a teenage girl, Ocasio-Cortez continued the odd rant.
“It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women, [and] LGBT+ people in general,” continued AOC.
“These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead,” she added. “It’s really weird.”
Representative Ocasio-Cortez was swiftly mocked for the assertion that critics simply are jealous of her boyfriend and secretly want to date her.
And rightly so.
“I relate to AOC,” CNN commentator Mary Katharine Ham responded. “Literally every criticism of me boils down to people being disappointed they can’t have sex with me. It is indeed a burden, but one we must bear.”
Former “View” co-host Meghan McCain called AOC’s Twitter rant “bizarrely anti-feminist.”
“So, anytime women’s political choices are criticized we can just say it’s because people want to sleep them?” wrote McCain before deleting the tweet. “Can’t we just disagree with your tax/climate/mask policies without being involved in this weird sex narrative?”
Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy joked that Republican men don’t, in fact, want to date AOC, because “they know that dating or marrying a Communist is a recipe for misery.”
This isn’t the first time AOC has made a bizarre sexually-themed attack on her political opposition.
In an Instagram Live video posted this past February, Ocasio-Cortez claimed that she is a survivor of sexual assault and compared Republican senators Ted Cruz (TX) and Josh Hawley (MO) to her abuser over their alleged role in the Capitol riots.
“I’m a survivor of sexual assault, I haven’t told many people that in my life,” she said. “As a survivor, I struggle with the idea of being believed.”
“The reason why I think it’s important to share is because so many of the people who helped perpetrate and who take responsibility for what happened in the Capitol are trying to tell us all to move on,” AOC added. “And they’re trying to tell us to forget about what happened.”
It’s extraordinarily odd for a survivor of sexual assault to immediately minimize such an attack by comparing it to the Capitol riot and, many months later, alleging that critics want to sleep with her.
AOC’s claims that critics are simply sexually frustrated seem to indicate her therapy sessions aren’t working.
On Sunday, the congresswoman was reportedly filmed maskless in a densely packed drag bar in Florida.
Look – We applaud her for enjoying freedom in Florida. It is as it should be.
But AOC doesn’t have the mental capacity to recognize her own hypocrisy, demanding that her own constituents be mandated to wear masks and take a series of barely-effective vaccines.
She does this all while demonizing Florida for not towing the authoritarian line.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was thrilled by the New York lawmaker taking advantage of the less restrictive and onerous rules in his state.
“Welcome to Florida, AOC!” a tweet from DeSantis’ office reads. “We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to [the governor’s] leadership.”
She’s definitely enjoying the freedom. She just doesn’t want anybody else to.
