Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the hypocritical face of progressive Democrats in Congress, appeared fine with having a maskless meal in Miami Beach, Florida, on Thursday, despite aggressively supporting mask and vaccine mandates that the state of Florida has left up to individuals to decide for themselves.
The former bartender will enjoy her New Years Eve, via the freedoms offered in the Sunshine State, while her constituents are at home in New York where cases smashed the record for the third day in a row with 76,555 infections in 24 hours and residents wait in line for hours for tests
The 'Squad' member shared a drink and a laugh with an unknown guest at Doraku Sushi and Izakaya, according to photos shared by the National Review.
Ocasio-Cortez was dragged on Twitter by conservatives joking about her strict stance on COVID protocols, including a Twitter account devoted to and endorsed by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis, which invited her to 'enjoy a taste of freedom' in the Sunshine State.
”Welcome to Florida, AOC! We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to @RonDeSantisFL’s leadership,” read a post from late Thursday night.
“P.S. We recommend the Rock Shrimp Roll and the Aoki Tai the next time you decide to dine in Miami. Cheers!,” read a follow-up tweet.
In February, Ocasio-Cortez called on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to step down after he took his family on a trip to Cancun while Texas was in the throes of a deadly winter storm that knocked out power to millions. “If Sen. Cruz had resigned back in January after helping gin up a violent insurrection that killed several people, he could’ve taken his vacation in peace,” she tweeted at the time. “Texans should continue to demand his resignation.”
When Cruz mocked AOC for her comments about the Jan. 6 Capitol riot during a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Fla., Ocasio-Cortez shot back. “I don’t care what Cruz said at CPAC, but I do care that it appears Texas was just a layover stop for him between Cancun and Orlando to drop a pack of water into someone’s trunk and abandon his constituents again as they get slammed with $16,000 electrical bills,”
To most rational-thinking Americans, AOCs "do as I say, not as I do" actions are appalling. Yet kind of expected as the young politician has already learned how to walk the line of hypocrisy by watching the life of the hopefully soon-to-be retiring House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
How do they do this, they have no fear of God, thus no shame in their double standards. Lockdowns for the people, whatever they want for themselves.
