Not much is expected of New York Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s integrity, but she has reached a new low. AOC was chastised for vacationing in Miami Beach, Florida after Democratic politicians and Dr. Anthony Fauci warned Americans to cancel New Year’s Eve plans due to the ravenous spread of the omicron variant.
The only defense the congresswoman could conjure up was to call Florida Governor Ron DeSantis “missing” instead of doing his job. “Hasn’t Gov. DeSantis been inexplicably missing for like 2 weeks?” she tweeted.
“If he’s around, I would be happy to say hello. His social media team seems to have been posting old photos for weeks. In the meantime, perhaps ii could help with local organizing. Folks are quite receptive here” she added.
Christina Pushaw, a spokeswoman for DeSantis set the record straight. Pushaw told Fox News the governor was accompanying his wife Casey to medical appointments for breast cancer on December 29.
Pushaw also tweeted a schedule of the Governor’s schedule to show he has in fact been hard at work with a message to Ocasio-Cortez: “Have you ever considered that you’re one of the reasons nobody trusts the media?”
DeSantis went public with the news of his wife’s diagnosis in October when he told Fox News he was committed to helping her through the illness and recovery process. As “the mother of three young children, Casey is the centerpiece of our family and has made an impact on the lives of countless Floridians through her initiatives as first lady” said DeSantis.

Biden supports ‘exception’ to filibuster to ‘codify Roe v. Wade in the law’
Breaking Thursday, President Joe Biden gave his support to amend or drop the filibuster rule in order to restore perceived abortion rights lost following the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade on Friday.
While at the NATO summit in Spain, Biden said “The most important thing to be clear about is I believe we have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law, and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that.”
“And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this, requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision,” Biden added.
A filibuster requires 60 votes, and The Hill writes “There are not 50 senators who support changing the rules around the filibuster, however, making Biden’s suggestion unlikely to go anywhere.”
