Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told late-night host Stephen Colbert on Monday night that she gives "zero” fucks about senior Democrats in the House criticizing her.
“Now, congresswoman, for you and other freshmen members of Congress, you're getting a fair amount of pushback from even members of your own party saying ‘wait your turn, go slow, don't ask for so much so fast right now, you're new, wait your turn for everything and don't make waves,'" Colbert said on the "The Late Show."
“I want to ask this question in a respectful manner, knowing also that you're from Queens, so you will understand this question,” he continued. “On a scale from zero to some, how many fucks do you give?”
Ocasio-Cortez laughed and then responded, “I think it’s zero.”
