Democrat Swalwell Joins AOC In Sunny Maskless South Florida

Hypocrisy anyone?

What Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell preaches is not what he practices. That is being made evident in Miami Beach.

FNC: “Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., who claimed last week that Republicans had ‘prolonged’ the COVID-19 pandemic, was photographed maskless as he vacationed with his family in mandate-free Florida. California is one of the most locked-down states in the nation.

The photos, published exclusively by the Daily Mail, show a maskless Swalwell tending to his infant son as he spoke with a female friend in the lobby of the luxurious Loews Miami Beach Hotel.”

“As we end 2021, mired in a deadly pandemic, you should know who has prolonged it,” Swalwell wrote. “THESE GUYS. Republican liars. Your vacation cancelled. Your kids back to virtual learning. And back to masks everywhere. For blame look no farther than #TheseGuys.” But apparently, his vacation wasn’t canceled.

The governor of Florida had something to say about Democrat hypocrites. DeSantis: “The number of lockdown-politicians that have locked down their people, lectured their people, cast aspersions on Florida, who then turn around and then seek refuge in Florida, it’s so much it’s become a cottage industry. I mean, you have governors, you have mayors, you have members of Congress. They say one thing, and then they live under different sets of rules. And I think the thing about Florida, as we’ve said, you have the ability to make your own decisions. You know, we are not going to use the heavy hand of government to curtail your freedoms or to ruin your livelihoods. And those policies were policies that all those people railed against, and yet they’ll come down here and bask in the Florida sunshine and the Florida freedom. So I’m glad that Florida is a refuge for people. I mean, you know, we’re happy with what we’re doing, but it really shows you that this is a ruling class mentality where they think that they can impose these on other people, but that they should not have to follow all the dictates that they constantly spout…It’s interesting the reception that some of these folks will get in Florida because I think a lot of Floridians 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 basically to be able to enjoy life.’”
