Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has called out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) over her “middle school” response to getting caught partying in Florida while New York sees a surge in virus cases.
McEnany, the co-host of Fox News’s “Outnumbered,” ripped AOC for claiming Republicans are mad because they can’t “date” her.
President Trump’s former spokeswoman said AOC needs to grow up and act in a way that is “befitting” her position as a United States congresswoman.
“You’re a sitting United States congresswoman in the United States House of Representatives,” McEnany said.
“You represent nearly 700,000 people.
“You are the titular head of the left, an important and powerful wing of the Democrat Party, and you are engaging in juvenile behavior, saying Republicans are mad they cannot date me? Come on now.
“Tweet something befitting of your position as a United States congresswoman, not this juvenile behavior that I think a middle schooler would engage in.
“Not, again, a sitting congresswoman.”
The New York lawmakers lashed out with bizarre claims after she was spotted enjoying the red state freedom of Florida with her boyfriend, who have both been maskless in videos and photos.
AOC said: “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
“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.”
“Hasn’t Gov. DeSantis been inexplicably missing for like 2 weeks?
“If he’s around, I would be happy to say hello. His social media team seems to have been posting old photos for weeks.
“In the meantime, perhaps I could help with local organizing.
“Folks are quite receptive here.
“I’d also be happy to share some notes from @GovKathyHochul’s work in NY since he seems to be in need of tips!”
Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis fired back at AOC, saying: “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.
“Let me tell you. I mean Congresspeople, Mayors, Governors.
“It’s interesting though the reception that some of these folks get in Florida because a lot of Floridians are saying wait a minute, you’re bashing us because we aren’t doing your draconian policies yet we are the first place you flee to to be able to enjoy life.”
