Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) faced backlash late this week after claiming that Republicans criticize her because they “are mad they can’t date me.”

Ocasio-Cortez faced criticisms after she was caught hanging out in Miami, Florida, as her city dealt with a record-breaking number of daily coronavirus cases.

National Review reported that, according to photographs obtained by the publication, Ocasio-Cortez was “seated outside Doraku Sushi and Izakaya in Miami Beach Thursday afternoon, raising a cocktail in one hand and checking her phone in another.”

“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,” Ocasio-Cortez responded to one of the critics calling her out. “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,” AOC continued. “These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”

Notable responses to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet included:

  • Kurt Schlichter, columnist: “Well, this broke the cringe meter.”
  • Dave Rubin, political commentator: “People are fixated with you for being an entitled, hypocritical, socialist, lockdown happy, vaccine mandate-ho while vacationing in the free state of Florida. You just suck as a person and as a public servant. That’s really the extent of it.”
  • Amber Athey, journalist: “‘Saying you don’t want to date me proves you want to date me.’ This is peak cringe millennial womyn brain.”
  • Brian Riedl, economist: “Ladies and gentlemen, your United States Congress.”
  • Jennifer Van Laar, journalist: “Republican women are not sexually frustrated, ma’am. Perhaps your fixation on our sex lives is a bit of projection?”
  • Jon Gabriel, editor: “Same. The only reason anyone disagrees with my articles is because I’m so hot.”
  • Tim Carney, writer: “This is a very weird thought to make public.”
  • Andrew Follett, writer: “Nobody on the right wants to date you. Nobody. We just think it’s hilarious that you fled to a free state just when your home state is going through a crisis. And that u use ur boyfriend to embezzle money from your donors.”
  • Karol Markowicz, columnist: “Remember when AOC had someone really sharp tweeting for her and that person was king/queen of the clapback? She…should rehire them.”
  • John Fund, political commentator: “I am beginning to think that AOC has been protected from herself until now by handlers. She may not be ready for prime time. Chuck Schumer just might breath a sigh of relief.”
  • Noam Blum, editor: “There’s being defensive and then there’s this.”
  • A.J. Delgado, political commentator: “You set women back with this ‘Y’all just criticize me bc you want me!’ takes. I don’t know if it’s deranged, childish, or what … but it’s CRINGE (and inaccurate). Same as your ‘Jan 6 folks wanted to rape me.’ (Huh??) Tucker was right.”
