On Thursday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis criticized the hypocrisy of politicians such as Democrat Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Eric Swalwell, who have been seen vacationing in Florida unmasked while also bemoaning the fact that Florida has little COVID-19 restrictions.

DeSantis: ‘You have governors, you have mayors, you have members of Congress — they say one thing, and then they live under different sets of rules’

DeSantis said that these “lockdown politicians” have a “ruling class mentality” because they want to force others to live under different rules than how they behave themselves.

The governor said, “The number of lockdown politicians that have locked down their people, lectured their people, cast aspersions on Florida who then turn around and then seek refuge in Florida is so much, it’s become a cottage industry.”

“I mean, you have governors, you have mayors, you have members of Congress — they say one thing, and then they live under different sets of rules,” DeSantis said. “And I think the thing about Florida is we have said you have the ability to make your own decisions.”

He added, “You know, we are not going to use the heavy hand of government to curtail your freedoms or to ruin your livelihoods.”

Gov. DeSantis Is ‘Glad Florida Is A Refuge’

DeSantis continued, “And those policies were policies that all those people railed against, and yet, they will come down here and bask in the Florida sunshine and the Florida freedom.”

He noted that his state was a “refuge” for those wanting to avoid the harsh restrictions and policies that have been implemented in other states due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“So, I’m glad that Florida is a refuge for people,” DeSantis said. “We are happy with what we are doing, but it really shows you that this is a ruling class mentality where they think that they can impose these on other people but that they should not have to follow all the dictates that they constantly spout.”
