AOC reveals she has COVID after partying maskless at Miami drag bash

Democrat Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says she has caught COVID – days after she was snapped partying maskless at a Miami drag brunch. 

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.

It is unclear how AOC caught the virus, with the lawmaker announcing her illness on Twitter Sunday night 

It is unclear when or how AOC became infected, and if Porter was also exposed. He has yet to make any comment in the wake of his politician pal’s diagnosis

But on Sunday, January 2, AOC was pictured getting up close and personal with pals at a drag brunch at the Palace Bar on Miami’s South Beach.

She was snapped cuddling maskless with COVID star Billy Porter, and basking in the attention of other attendees, who were evidently thrilled to be in the presence of the star lawmaker. 

The progressive congresswoman was blasted by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for backing draconian restrictions in her home state of New York, then coming to the Sunshine State and enjoying its lack of COVID-19 protocols. 

Right-wing commentator Brendon Leslie took aim at AOC after news of the event emerged, and accused her of hypocrisy.

He said: ‘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.’  


AOC’s jaunt to Florida also saw her sip cocktails at an outdoor sushi restaurant with her boyfriend Riley Roberts. 

That triggered an online war of words after conservative commentators mocked Roberts for wearing Birkenstocks, with the congresswoman blasting their ‘creepy’ obsession with her love live.
