Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said on Thursday that Americans are “tired” of seeing politicians and members of the media ignoring their own advice when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic.

Rubio made his comment after multiple politicians, including Austin Mayor Steve Adler and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, called on their constituents to stay at home during the holidays despite traveling themselves.

"When people took to the streets dancing, tightly-packed crowds celebrating because of [the election] nobody said a word, and it's the same with the stuff now," Rubio said on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Thursday. "We've got these people that own a business that put their whole life's work into it, and you got some guy behind a Zoom camera on television who gets paid to work from home, lecturing them about how they need to close their business, and not work and not employ people until they tell them it's OK to do it, so it's an enormous amount of hypocrisy and people are tired of it."

The senator also took issue with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo receiving an award for his work during the pandemic.

He said, "Gov. [Ron] DeSantis in the state of Florida is often characterized in the legacy media as some sort of COVID disaster but New York has less people than Florida, more cases, more deaths, and nonetheless their governor wins an Emmy because of his press conferences. I mean this is stupid and the kind of hypocrisy, again, people see this stuff and they realize it."
