While most of America is sheltering in place and trying to fight off gaining the “COVID-15,” Aaron Schock is busy working on his tan in Mexico.
From the looks of his social media posts, the disgraced ex-congressman has holed up in a lavish beachside resort in Cabo San Lucas with a group of InstaStuds. House of Kirschner founder Mauricio Kirschner shared a group photo with Schock on Instagram, captioning the post, “BE MY QUARENTINE.”
Twitter’s Sam Stryker tweeted out the photo, too: “This group of Instagays ‘quarantining’ at a resort in Mexico—WITH Aaron Schock—seem to have a very different definition of ‘social distancing’ than the rest of us! I don’t know who needs to hear this but f**king a disgraced former GOP congressman is not ‘essential business’”

New York magazine contributor Yashar Ali shared additional photos from Schock’s Mexico vacation, writing, “Love that Aaron Schock has been holed up at a villa in Mexico with a bunch of guys. One of them just posted an IG story with ’Stay at Home’ hashtag. You’re not at home, bitch. Must get rid of toxic in community… a bunch of awful people.”

As NewNowNext previously reported, Schock crept back in the headlines in March, when he formally came out as gay in a lengthy Instagram post.
“For those who know me and for many who only know of me, this will come as no surprise,” Schock wrote to his 47,000 followers. “For the past year, I have been working through a list of people who I felt should finally hear the news directly from me before I made a public statement. I wanted my mother, my father, my sisters, my brother, and my closest friends to hear it from me first.”
“The fact that I am gay is just one of those things in my life in need of explicit affirmation, to remove any doubt and to finally validate who I am as a person,” he continued. “In many ways I regret the time wasted in not having done so sooner.”
Schock resigned from Congress when questions surfaced about his lavish spending while in office. Many thought his political career was over after a federal grand jury indicted him in 2016 on more than 24 charges, including fraud, filing false income tax returns, and using campaign funds for personal trips and other luxuries. However, all charges were dropped when he agreed to pay back the IRS.
We think Schock’s Cabo self-isolation can be summed up by Instagram user natty318’s comment:
Remember to stay home and stay safe, everyone!
