Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) generated plenty of unwanted attention over the past week, as not only was she spotted vacationing in the free state of Florida while her New York district experienced a surge in COVID-19 cases, but she was also seen breaking one of her own rules.
According to Fox News, Ocasio-Cortez was reportedly spotted at a drag queen bar somewhere in or near Miami without a mask on. The bar, as noted in the video below, was packed with partygoers — which if a Republican was spotted there without a mask, would likely be labeled as a “super spreader” event.
EXPOSED: AOC is STILL lounging it up in Florida, in large crowds and maskless. This time at a Drag Queen bar in Miami.

As the Twitter user added, AOC is simply the latest Democrat to employ the “rules for thee, but not for me” motto.
Hypocrisy on display
Another Twitter user added that it wasn’t necessarily the fact that she was maskless, it’s the double standard that people like AOC and her fellow Democrats seem to live by, as far as pandemic-related guidance is concerned.
Not only that, but AOC joined numerous other Democrats in criticizing Florida’s handling of the pandemic, which has been more relaxed compared to most other states.
“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,” reporter Brendon Leslie wrote.
What a brat
Leslie jokingly added that he had no desire to sleep with AOC, which was a reference to a recent bratty remark the congresswoman made after being criticized by her opponents for enjoying Florida for a vacation after spending a year trashing Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and the state in general.
“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. Ya creepy weirdos.” AOC tweeted Friday.
She added: “It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women,& LGBT+ people in general. These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”
As Candace Owens noted on Monday night during an interview with Tucker Carlson, if a white Republican congressman would have made a similar remark, the liberal mainstream media and Democrats would have been hysterical over such a bizarre and inappropriate comment.
Hopefully, AOC wraps up her Florida getaway soon, as the New York district she represents continues to see soaring crime rates and COVID-19 cases. It’s probably time for her to do her elected job.
