(FOX NEWS) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis joked about how Democrats from states with “draconian” coronavirus policies keep popping up in his state for vacation.
DeSantis was asked about this during a press conference Monday after progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was spotted in Miami over the weekend, not wearing a mask while at a crowded drag bar.
“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 joked. “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 basically to be able to enjoy life.”
