GOP Twitter went bonkers Friday over a holiday trip that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took to Florida.

“Welcome to Florida, AOC!” a campaign account for Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis tauntingly tweeted. “We hope you’re enjoying a taste of freedom here in the Sunshine State thanks to @RonDeSantisFL‘s leadership.”

The hashtag #AOCLovesDeSantis officially trended on Twitter as droves of conservatives crowed over the congresswoman’s visit south.

“If Florida’s covid policies are so dangerous how come Democrats keep vacationing there?” one commenter tweeted.

An article in the conservative National Review featuring a photo of the congresswoman with her partner at a Miami cafe appeared to trigger the barrage of tweets. AOC’s mother reportedly lives in Florida.

A spokeswoman for the lawmaker declined to comment.
