“After a photo of a maskless Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and her boyfriend vacationing in Florida hit Twitter and drew pushback from Republicans, the firebrand congresswoman fired back, accusing the GOP of taking out its “sexual frustrations” for not being able to date her, and fixating on her instead.
GOP personality and former adviser to President Donald Trump, Steve Cortes, posted on Twitter, criticizing AOC for not wearing a mask while dining out in Florida while her home state is forcing vaccine and mask mandates on the population.
He also leveled a critique at her boyfriend, Riley Roberts.
“1. If Leftists like AOC actually thought mandates and masking worked, they wouldn’t be frolicking in free Florida,” his post read. “2. Her guy is showing his gross pale male feet in public (not at a pool/beach) with hideous sandals. 0 for 2.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded by accusing Republicans of being “fixated” on her.
“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,” she said. “It’s starting to get old, ignoring the obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women, and LGBT+ people in general. These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”“
Comment: No, sweety, the willingness of the people of your district to elect you is what is weird, considering your record and childish ignorance about economics, etc. That is what is weird.
Her remark that “these people clearly need therapy” is eerily reminiscent of the way political opponents to communism were classified in the USSR as mentally ill and forcibly committed to mental hospitals. But then, she probably does not know that. Bernie Sanders could tell her about it. pl
