Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was recorded without a mask in a densely packed bar in Miami, according to footage that emerged Sunday.
The large crowd at the drag bar, most of whom were also without a mask, applauded the congresswoman as she waved to them, as first reported by Florida’s Conservative Voice.
“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,” wrote Brendon Leslie, the reporter who first tweeted the video.
Ocasio-Cortez’s home state of New York has seen a record surge in COVID-19 cases amid the spread of the omicron variant.
