image for Ocasio-Cortez criticizes GOP for 'projecting their sexual frustrations' at her

Steve Cortes, a former Trump campaign adviser, shared a photo on Twitter on Friday of Ocasio-Cortez in public with her boyfriend, Riley Roberts, vacationing in Florida.

Cortes attacked Ocasio-Cortez for not wearing a mask in public and also took aim at Roberts's "gross pale male feet in public.".

Ocasio-Cortez responded by retweeting the photo and writing, "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.

I’d also be happy to share some notes from @GovKathyHochul’s work in NY since he seems to be in need of tips!

Ian Haworth, editor of The Daily Wire, replied to Ocasio-Cortez's tweet by writing, "I definitely do not want to date you.".
