“Why are so many grown men just obsessed with this, like, 29 year-old?” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) asked NBC late-night talk show host Seth Meyers Thursday.

Meyers had asked the congresswoman about the coverage "our friends over at Fox News" are giving her:

MEYERS: “One obsession, or I should say, a group of people who seem to have an obsession with you, are our friends over at Fox News. They talk about you a lot. Are you surprised with the speed at which they seemed to have shifted all their attention and programming to you?”

REP. OCASIO-CORTEZ: “I mean, it’s weird. Like, why are so many grown men just obsessed with this, like, 29-year-old? I mean, it’s great. I love the — On second thought: no, but, I think it’s really funny, and the conspiracy theories.”
