Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis mocked Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for visiting Florida amid what he called “draconian policies” in her home state of New York.
Ocasio-Cortez was caught maskless in Miami as cases of coronavirus reached a record high in New York.
During a press conference on Monday, DeSantis was asked about AOC enjoying her time in the Republican state and had the crowd laughing quite a few times.
DeSantis quipped, “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, lemme tell ya.”
“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 because I think a lot of Floridians 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, to basically be able to enjoy life,’” DeSantis added.
