In a bizarre post to Instagram, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed she was giving Florida Republicans everything they ever wanted. Because she recently took a visit to the Sunshine State with her boyfriend, Riley, Republicans apparently became obsessed with his feet. In an effort to give the people what they were craving, Ocasio-Cortez recorded and uploaded a video showing off her boyfriend’s feet to Instagram Stories, where the responses were mixed as most people were surprised and grossed out that she was showing off the feet of her lover.
“So we recently went to Florida, where Republicans developed an obsession with Riley’s feet,” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said in the Instagram video. She and her boyfriend are walking through a parking garage in the video. She pans the camera to her boyfriend’s feet, which are in shoes, and captures them taking several steps. “So give the people what they want!”
In the background of the video, AOC’s boyfriend, Riley Roberts, is heard laughing out loud.
Ocasio-Cortez’s video was a response to conservative Republicans criticizing her for going outside without a mask in Florida, which does not have any restrictions. She was seen in public with her boyfriend enjoying a Florida weekend and was ridiculed for it.
One photograph of the couple showed Roberts in a pair of Birkenstock sandals. Republicans began poking fun at his bare feet. Ocasio-Cortez came to her boyfriend’s defense after conservative tweeter Steve Cortes became a bit too sexually frustrated in reference to Riley’s bare feet.
Ocasio-Cortez was criticized for “frolicking in free Florida,” while her home state of New York has instituted a strict mask mandate to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The New York liberal was in Miami with her boyfriend for a lunch date on December 30, 2021.
“AOC is STILL lounging it up in Florida, in large crowds and maskless. This time at a Drag Queen bar in Miami. Rules for thee but not for me,” wrote right-wing journalist Brendon Leslie. “For those of you with zero sense of humor: the whole point of this post is to expose hypocrisy. We don’t actually care. She’s maskless. We care she fear mongers about Florida but then has the audacity to vacation here.”
Another conservative social media account called Libs of TikTok shared a tweet about the incident, writing: “AOC was spotted partying in a bar maskless in the great free state of Florida. Absolute hypocrite.”
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “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. 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.”
The firebrand congresswoman added, “These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”
