DeSantis Blasts ‘Lockdown Politicians’ For Vacationing in Florida [Video]

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis joked about politicians from states with strict COVID-19 measures who’ve vacationed in the Sunshine State since the start of the pandemic.

The question came during a press conference on Monday after a maskless Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) was spotted in Miami at a crowded drag bar over the weekend.

“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,” DeSantis said. “I mean, congresspeople, mayors, governors, I mean you name it.”

“It’s interesting the reception that some of these folks will get in Florida,” the governor continued, “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 be able to enjoy life.'”

“There are probably about a half dozen governors who had restrictions on their people and then were spotted at various points in Florida. Some of it’s been public, some of it’s not been public, but you know people tell me these things,” DeSantis added.

Still, the governor said he’s glad Florida can offer vacationers a semblance of normalcy in difficult times.

“I’m happy though that Florida’s a place where people know they can come and they can live like normal people, they can make their own decisions,” DeSantis said.

    Yeah those Democrats don’t like the idea that other than Miami, Florida has a much smaller infection rate so they decided to south and infect as many non-leftist as possible. Just don’t try to get into Yankee Town, Fl… You might get shot with a NY. Del, Pa, DC. tag on your vehicle

    So agree! My fear is that they are somehow bringing in more virus to spread it in FL. The Dimocrats fear DeSantis and will do anything to try to stop him from running for president.
