Colbert, however, asked Ocasio-Cortez about the president’s tweet regarding Crowley’s loss.
“Well you know, the president is from Queens, and with all due respect — half of my district is from Queens — I don’t think he knows how to deal with a girl from the Bronx,” she told Colbert.
Ocasio-Cortez criticized Trump this week for his remarks about Crowley.
“It is unacceptable to be disrespectful of Congressman Crowley,” Ocasio-Cortez told CNN in an interview.
“He’s done some phenomenal, phenomenal work for the Bronx and Queens.”
The president on Tuesday called Crowley a “big Trump hater” following the upset in New York.
