Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shared a bizarre video of her boyfriend’s feet on her Instagram stories Tuesday, claiming Republicans are obsessed with them and she should give the people what they want.
‘So we recently went to Florida, where Republicans developed an obsession with Riley’s feet,’ Rep. Ocasio-Cortez said in the video, as she panned the camera down to his shoes as he walked ahead of her in an apparent parking garage.
She added, shouting: ‘So give the people what they want!’
Her boyfriend, Riley Roberts, was heard laughing in the background.
The video references comments made over the weekend by conservatives who slammed the Democratic socialist representative for partying maskless in restriction-free Florida and enjoying cocktails and sushi with Roberts.
Roberts was snapped wearing a pair of Birkenstocks with bare feet, prompting jokes from Republicans, and subsequent backlash from AOC who accused conservative tweeter Steve Cortes of being sexually frustrated.

Social media users first accused AOC of ‘frolicking in free Florida’ while her home state enforced mask mandates, after her Miami lunch date with her boyfriend on December 30.
‘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,’ he added.
‘AOC was spotted partying in a bar maskless in the great free state of Florida. Absolute hypocrite,’ tweeted Twitter account Libs of TikTok.
Hitting back, 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.’
She added: ‘These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.’

However, her tweets were not taken well by conservatives.
Political commentator Candace Owens blasted Ocasio-Cortez as ‘bratty, immature and disgusting’ and claimed that not all people who criticize the congresswoman want to sleep with her.
‘I saw this and I actually couldn’t believe my eyes,’ Owens told Fox News host Tucker Carlson during an interview Monday. ‘It’s so bratty and so immature and it’s so disgusting to even think about.’
She added: ‘And let me just say in case there’s any confusions. No, Sandy, I do not want to sleep with you.’
Owens accused Ocasio-Cortez of being ‘about ten margaritas deep in Miami enjoying the free state of Florida’ when she wrote the ‘filth’ she shared on Twitter.
‘How bizarre and immature is it for any person…to look at a fair critique of them as an elected official who has been barking about how Florida is doing every thing wrong, how bad Ron DeSantis is, to see this critique and to offer back well, you know what, you just want to sleep with me,’ Owens said.

She also compared Ocasio-Cortez’s behavior to that of a ‘teenage boy who derives sexual innuendoes from everything’ and alleged she has the ‘mind of a middle-schooler’.
‘This is a 32-year-old woman. It’s unacceptable quite frankly,’ Owens said. ‘And, it is hilarious, but it’s actually unacceptable that she is an elected official that sits in Congress.’
In addition to her lunch outing with Roberts, the congresswoman – who has long been an advocate for mask-wearing during the pandemic – faced criticisms after was spotted partying in Miami on Sunday without a face covering as she socialized with actor Billy Porter.

Similarly, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (pictured Monday) indirectly blasted the congresswoman Monday, telling reporters many of the so-called ‘lockdown politicians’ have been vacationing in restriction-free Florida during the pandemic despite pushing for mask and vaccine mandates in their own states
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis indirectly blasted the congresswoman Monday, telling reporters many of the so-called ‘lockdown politicians’ have been vacationing in the Sunshine State during the pandemic despite pushing for mask and vaccine mandates in their own states.
‘If I had a dollar for every lockdown politician that decided to escape to Florida over the last two years, I’d be a pretty doggone wealthy man,’ Gov. DeSantis.
‘Congresspeople, mayors, governors, you name it. Some of it’s been public, some of it has not been public.’
The governor suggested the politicians were hypocrites, saying: ‘I think a lot of Floridians will 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 be able to enjoy life.”‘
‘I am happy though that Florida is a place where people know they can come, they can live like normal people and they can make their own decisions.’
