Congressman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has teased Beto O & Rourke and senator Cory Booker to speak Spanish during the first democratic presidential primary debate.

Ocaso-Cortez appeared on Wednesday night in The Late Show of CBS with Stephen Colbert, where the audience in Manhattan greeted her by & # 39; AOC, AOC & # 39; to sing.

& # 39; I loved it because I represent the Bronx, there was a lot of Spanglish in the building & # 39 ;, the New York Democrat replied when Colbert asked her what she thought of the answers the candidates gave in Spanish.

& # 39; I thought it was humorous, sometimes sometimes, & # 39; she continued.

& # 39; Especially since I sometimes thought the content of the question, I thought people would just start saying … & # 39; she said, speaking further in Spanish.

& # 39; Which means "I won't answer your question," said Ocasio-Cortez.

& # 39; But it was – it was good. I thought it was a good gesture to the fact that we are a diverse country, & she continued.

O & # 39; Rourke surprised the audience when he asked if he began to speak to Ocasio-Cortez & # 39; s proposal to raise the highest individual tax rate to 70 percent.

A moderator pointed out that he had not answered the question directly in either language.

O & # 39; Rourke was widely mocked at the moment, with Colbert joking in his monologue that the candidate sounded like he was going to & # 39; embarrassing father in a Mexican restaurant & # 39; ran.

Later in the debate, Booker reacted in part in Spanish when he talked about immigration policy.

In conversation with Colbert, Ocasio-Cortez compared the ten-person disposition with & # 39; a high school classroom & # 39 ;, adding that & # 39; some people apparently did not seem to read the book and were then called. & # 39;

When asked who she thought was going well in the debate, Ocasio-Cortez praised Senator Elizabeth Warren and Julian Castro, a former secretary for housing and urban development.

She added that she thought Booker & # 39; did a great job. & # 39;
