AOC’s Bizarre Defense of Florida Vacation Highlights Left’s Hypocrisy

By Virginia Allen for The Daily Signal

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, states like Florida have received a lot of criticism from the political left for not requiring endless masking or imposing stringent lockdowns. Yet Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says, “If I had a dollar for every lockdown politician who decided to escape to Florida over the last two years, I’d be a pretty doggone wealthy man.”

DeSantis’ remarks were made in response to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s recent trip to Florida over the Christmas holiday. National Review published photos of the Democrat congresswoman from New York sitting outside enjoying lunch with her boyfriend in Miami Beach, Florida.

Former Trump adviser Steve Cortes shared the photo on Twitter, writing, “If Leftists like AOC actually thought mandates and masking worked, they wouldn’t be frolicking in free FL.” He also took a jab at her boyfriend’s shoe choice, calling his sandals “hideous.”

How did the congresswoman respond?

“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, adding, “Ya creepy weirdos.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s response left many scratching their heads.

A few days later, Ocasio-Cortez was again seen maskless at a drag bar in Miami.

Florida’s Conservative Voice founder Brendon Leslie reported the incident, tweeting, “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.”

On this week’s edition of the “Problematic Women” podcast, we discuss Ocasio-Cortez’s actions and the troubling COVID-19 policies being promoted by the left.

Also on today’s show, we discuss the media’s reporting of Sen. Ted Cruz’s daughter and give a brief update on the new host of “The Bachelor.” And as always, we crown our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”
