Ocasio-Cortez, in sick burn, compares Trump to ‘nematode'

FOX NEWS - Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., compared President Trump to a worm during an interview on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on Thursday -- but you'd need your dictionary to know that.

The 29-year-old congresswoman used an obscure term to take a swipe at Trump toward the end of her appearance, when Meyers asked her about winning the second-place prize as a teen in her high school science competition.

"Science was my first passion," said Ocasio-Cortez. "I studied microbiology and the impacts of antioxidants on a model organism known as the C. elegan, which is of the nematode family."

Meyers compared Ocasio-Cortez's interest in science to that of Trump, interjecting "I think he did that, too."
