The 29-year-old lawmaker — who’s seen her political star power soar since her win against 10-term Rep. Joseph Crowley (D) in New York’s 14th District primary last June — will sit down with Stephen Colbert on Monday’s show. Rapper Method Man is also poised to appear, the network announced Friday.


Ocasio-Cortez made her inaugural late-night appearance on Colbert’s CBS show last year, shortly after winning the Democratic primary.

The then-House hopeful knocked President Trump at the time, saying, “I don’t think he knows how to deal with a girl from the Bronx.”

Colbert’s program has become a must-stop destination for high-profile political figures and potential 2020 presidential candidates. Last week, Sen.
