We wish her a speedy recovery and hope she enjoys her new-found natural immunity for many years to come.
During the New Year holiday, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ditched the locked-down, vax passport-demanding, mask-mandated Big Apple to ring in the New Year in Free Florida.
She was caught dining and drinking in Florida without the mask. There are also several photographs of her dancing with and hugging fans at a drag bar.

EXPOSED: AOC is STILL lounging it up in Florida, in large crowds and maskless. This time at a Drag Queen bar in Miami.

Somewhere between the Big Apple and the Drag Bar she became infected with SARS-Cov-2 and has come done with COVID-19.
The Bronx Representative, 32, made the announcement on her official Twitter page Sunday night, sharing a statement on House of Representatives headed paper which said: ‘Representative Ocasio-Cortez has received a positive test result for COVID-19.
‘She is experiencing symptoms and is recovering at home. The Congresswoman received her booster shot this Fall, and encourages everyone to get their booster and follow all CDC guidance.’
AOC then added some of her own guidance in a follow-up tweet, writing: ‘For information on what to do if you’re exposed to COVID, test positive or want to schedule a test or vaccine in New York City — see our round-up of CDC and NYC resources here,’ before adding a link to a personal website.
The social media response has been a fascinating blend of her counter to the challenges about her Florida vacation (Republicans are mad because they want to date me) and karmic amusement over her current situation in light of her vacation behavior. There were also many reminders that vaccination was supposed to stop the type of surge we are now experiencing around the country.

I am deeply saddened to learn Ron DeSantis did not prevent AOC from contracting COVID.

Fully VACCINATED, and BOOSTED Congresswoman AOC has tested POSITIVE for COVID-19.
Their vaccination narrative is collapsing before our eyes.
How long until the media blames DeSantis? https://t.co/9uip7LmpG9

This is a reminder that I projected everyone would eventually come down with COVID in an August 2021 post. And while there were many doubters at that time, the Omicron wave is changing many people’s opinions about the nature of the virus.
I must admit, I am experiencing a little schadenfreude. That being said, I wish Ocasio-Cortez a speedy recover and I hope she enjoys her new-found natural immunity for many years to come. It will likely work better than the vaccine.
And if she wanted infectious disease with her sunshine, she should have come to California. There are plenty pathogens available.DONATE
