Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Mocks Beto and Booker's ‘Humorous' Spanish Skills at Democratic Debate
CBSRep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not ready to make a 2020 endorsement quite yet. But that wasn't going to stop her from sharing her thoughts about the first of two Democratic primary debates with Stephen Colbert. 

As the "AOC!" chants died down, Colbert began by asking the congresswoman what she thought about all of the Spanish being spoken on stage by candidates, including Beto O'Rourke and Cory Booker.

The conversation took place at a festival held by the Aspen Institute, a centrist think tank.

Zuckerberg called Sen. Mark Warner and Sen. Amy Klobuchar's Honest Ads Act, which would regulate online campaign ads in a bid to weed out disinformation from foreign actors, "a good floor for what should be passed," adding that Facebook is already complying with many of its requirements. "Having a bill like that passed as a floor would be positive," Zuckerberg said.
