Vaccinated and boosted “Squad” member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has tested positive for the coronavirus.
She is recovering from the virus at home and is experiencing symptoms.
Ocasio-Cortez received her booster shot in the fall, according to a statement from her office.
The news comes shortly after photos and video footage surfaced of publicly rejecting guidelines from Biden’s Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci who warned Americans against New Year’s celebrations that include “hugging and kissing.”
At a packed Miami drag bar, AOC was photographed giving a huge kiss to Broadway star Billy Porter. Watch the clip:
AOC has supported efforts to force others to abide by overly restrictive coronavirus-related policies since the start of the pandemic, but she hypocritically fails to follow guidelines herself.
She once even criticized others for “frolicking in free Florida.”
AOC’s fled her home state of New York state to vacation in Florida.
She will presumably return to New York where daily COVID records are being smashed. The most recent data showing a new high of 85,47 infections.
During a White House COVID-19 briefing, Dr. Fauci said, “If your plans are to go to a 40- to 50-person New Year’s Eve party with all the bells and whistles and everybody hugging and kissing and wishing each other a happy new year, I would strongly recommend that this year we do not do that.”
Fauci said small home gatherings were allowed among close family and friends who are both vaccinated and booster.
AOC clearly doesn’t care about following the rules herself.
More from Daily Mail:
The Democratic socialist Representative was first accused by many of ‘frolicking in free Florida’ while her home state enforced mask mandates, after her Miami lunch date with her boyfriend on December 30.
AOC hit back on New Year’s Day claiming that the backlash came purely because her critics ‘want to date 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. Ya creepy weirdos,’ she tweeted.
She continued: ‘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.’
The congresswoman also angered Republicans days earlier when a photo of her December 30 lunch in Miami was published, with her opponents noting that the strident supporter of mask mandates was also not wearing one then as well.
‘Welcome to Florida, AOC!’ tweeted the account of the state’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis.
‘We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to @RonDeSantisFL’s leadership.’
