Rep. Michele Bachmann was asked about Miley Cyrus' Saturday Night Live sketch in which the singer dressed up as Bachmann and sang a parody of "We Can't Stop" about the government shutdown.

"I have a good sense of humor and I never take that personally," Bachmann told "The Monday after Saturday Night Live aired, we had a lot of calls to the office, and we had people think that was me. And let me tell you, as a 57-year-old woman, it's been a long time since I've been confused for a 20 year old."

She also said she doesn't twerk. "I've never done twerking in my life and I don't intend to take it up."
