Democrat hypocrisy has been on full display during the pandemic.
Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the rules don’t apply to them.
And Ron DeSantis just put the smack down on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in this unbelievable way.
During the entire course of the pandemic, Democrats have ordered Americans to stay home, avoid gathering in large groups, and wear a facemask at all times.
Of course, these Democrat officials don’t believe the rules apply to them.
And just recently, photos surfaced of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sitting outside a bar in Florida drinking martinis and not wearing a facemask.
After smearing Governor DeSantis as “Ron DeathSantis” because he opposes mask and vaccine mandates, these same Democrats secretly love to vacation down in Florida where they don’t have to live under the authoritarian rules they enforce in their own states.
During a recent press conference, Ron DeSantis poked fun at Democrats like Ocasio-Cortez who publicly attacked “the free state of Florida” while at the same time fleeing to the Sunshine state at the opportunity.
“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 dog-gone wealthy man, let me tell ya,” DeSantis began.
“I mean, Congresspeople, Mayors, Governors, I mean, you name it. It’s interesting though, the reception that some of these folks will get in Florida,” DeSantis added. “Because I think a lot of Floridians will say ‘Wait a minute, you’re bashing us because we’re not doing your draconian policies, and yet we’re the first place you want to flee to basically be able to enjoy life. And so I’m not surprised to see that continue to happen.”
DeSantis didn’t call any Democrats out by name.
But he clearly chuckled at how several Democrats who imposed lockdowns fled the very restrictions they imposed to enjoy freedom in Florida.
“I could tell you, I mean, there would probably be about half a dozen governors who had restrictions on their people and then were spotted at various points in Florida. Some of it’s been public. Some of it’s not been public,” DeSantis concluded.
