Ocasio-Cortez Targets This CEO, Gets Schooled

While testifying before Congress, Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan came under attack by freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It didn’t go well for her.

Rep. Maxine Waters was leading the House Financial Services Committee in attempting to hold “megabucks” like Wells Fargo accoutnable. 

Yet during the hearing, once again AOC proved that her lack of knowledge isn’t enough to deter her from speaking. For starters she accused Sloan and Wells Fargo of caging children at the border. 

“Why was the bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with?” Ocasio-Cortez asked.

Sloan easily defeated the baseless claim by stating the obvious, “I don’t know how to answer that question because we weren’t.”

The congresswoman then attempted to link the bank with two public prison firms weakly asking, “Uh, so in finan… you’ve, you were financing, involved in debt financing in CoreCivic and GEO group, correct?”

But again Sloan simply stated the facts. “For a period of time, we were involved in financing one of the firms, we are not anymore,” he replied. “I’m not familiar with the specific assertion you are making, we were not involved in that.”

Seeing her argument faltering, AOC then tried to charge the Sloan was somehow responsible for an oil spill because the bank had financed the pipeline.

Sloan stated that the bank had not directly financed the particular project. 

AOC stuck to the idea that banks should be financially liable for global warming because of such projects.

“I don’t know how’d you calculate that, congresswoman,” Sloan said.

“Say from spills, or when we have to reinvest in infrastructure building sea walls from the erosion uh, of,” Ocasio-Cortez attempted to continue, “um, from the erosion of infrastructure or cleanups, wildfires, et cetera.”

“Related to that pipeline?” Sloan asked in response. “I’m not aware that there’s been any of what you’ve described that’s occurred that’s related to that pipeline.”

Visibly flustered AOC finally asked Sloan directly why Wells Fargo shouldn’t be held financially responsible for possible future oil spills. 

“Because we don’t operate the pipeline,” he responded, “we provide financing to the company that’s operating the pipeline.”

Another simple concept that the fledging congresswoman is having a hard time understanding.

  1. What ever college she got her degree from should refund her money, as she did not learn jack shit. She is the dumbest person I have ever had to listen too. She has not one bit of common sienc at all she is just bull shit and more bull shit. She should be thrown out of office,

    1. From what was heard a month or so ago ,,,,,,,,,,the school did refund her fees as they didn’t want to be associated with a dumbo like her.

  2. It is pretty evident this person is an idiot and out of her league in knowledge of questions she ask or statements she makes. Since she was elected what words does one use to describe those that voted to put her in office ?

  3. Are incompetence and absence of common sense are enough reasons to impeach her? People of that IQ level are just a disgrace to American congress in front of the whole world.

  4. Ms. ‘Bugeyes’ has very little actual ‘knowledge’ about any of her accusations against our country or the businesses within it!!! Her ‘airy-fairy’ ideas have no basis in fact!! She’s about to get the ‘education’ of her life if she persists in making baseless accusations. She’s already ‘out-smarted’ and it really didn’t take much to do it!!

  5. Doesn’t say much for the people that elected her does it? She has a degree in Economics, so do I and I am so glad I did not go to her elite school, it would have been a waste of my time and money

  6. What He should have responded wit is, using your logic, Congresswoman, Congress should be the one held liable for a pipeline spill because it is the one that provided the enabling legislation for the oil to be pumped out of the ground, which is why it is in the pipeline to get spilled. 😎

  7. Navy PO2 I spoke to a couple ding bats the other night and they are mad as the dickens you putting ocasio cortez in there category and then a haif wit showed up and swore he would kick your butt if you even thought about putting her in his category !! She needs drug tested nobody can be that stupid !!

  8. Why is this semi literate a member of congress?? We have King of the Obongo/Congo Obama to thank for this sorry state of affairs! It will take 100 years to get rid of the Commies in our Govt. IF we Survive!

  9. HOW IN THE HELL DID SHE EVER GET ELECTED – THOSE HAD TO BE THE DUMBEST ASSERTIONS THAT I HAVE HEARD IN A LONG TIME – PERHAPS THERE SHOULD BE SOME KIND OF TEST TAKEN BEFORE BEING ELECTED TO WEED OUT THE IDIOTS

    1. I think that the voters themselves need to be IQ tested before being allowed to register to vote. The sorry, lack of intellect shown by voters all over the country has become the leading cause of morons in government “service”. There are way to many idiots “representing” congressional districts from one left coast to the other. I know that President Trump wants to drain the “swamp” of career politicians and users wanting only to enrich themselves at the taxpayers trough. But the swamp and the pool of morons in government today is so deep and so entrenched that we would have to get rid of all of them and start over from scratch. With the IQ testing up front of course.

  10. Why does she even occupy a seat. First, anyone under 35 isn’t experienced enough, ergo AOC …DUMBEST and she is anti American and dear god those bulging eyes.

  11. In a way it is really too bad this youngster continually displays her monumental ignorance on a huge range of issues. Boston U. should have its academic stature censured for conferring a degree on someone so obviously ill prepared. I consider her unfortunate actions and faux-pas a missed opportunity for young people to prove to their contemporaries that they have the education and the good sense to enter the political arena with the prospect of being able to conduct themselves with distinction! AO-C has by all of her actions shot any such concept to pieces. “Adults” in our world can reasonably conclude that young people who give unswerving loyalty to such a nincompoop simply are intent upon destroying the “Status Quo” regardless of justification or intellectual capability!

  12. This is a dumbest person on earth that we have ever seen and known.
    The ignorant who knows he or she is ignorant IS NOT ignorant at least.
    This one is worst of human we know. How many more congressmen or congresswomen that people would vote for in 2020 ??? Wake up American!!! Protect our American value and Freedom for our next generations to come. Hell to Socialism and communism !!!

  13. Well folks there was a petition to impeach the idiot got well over the amount to send before but do you think it did any good. The Jackass is, still braying stupidity!

    1. OMG Deborah Gillis you are right. She is really so stupid. What a shame she gets paid by our tax money for her stupidity

  14. get rid of the dumbo, she’s been given a lot of attention by the other dumbos that knows as much as she does……zilch, very scary for this country. need to shut down our schools and universities and get rid of lib teachers and professors before reopening again. Open charter schools instead regular schools, give the kids a lot better education, real history of this country, real math, not common core bulls—, english, etc.

  15. I am impressed by how openly she is willing to display her ignorance. In some ways I feel sorry for her, she just keeps insisting on making a fool of herself, in other ways I think she needs to take some time and actually open some American History books anf read the contents. I do not understand how someone who flagrantly flaunts their ignorrnce could find enough people to vote for them to put them in office.

  16. Please, please , please , do not criticize A.O-C. She is their loose canon . What will they say when they are asked to about her latest statement ? This is a woman who skipped billions, and dived into trillions with a snap of her fingers without blinking an eye .I can see Sen Schumer breaking out in a cold sweat as he has a nightmare of A. O-C coming to the senate . His hairline will recede faster than the tide going out .
    Speaker Pelosi may become completely incoherent as she tries to understand , and keep with A. O-C’s ideas and arithmetic . Auntie Maxine will ask for a forty-five , not in the bottle ,to deal with A.O-C.
    Yes, the republicans should cheer A.O-C on . Lets hear the rest of her ideas on :borders, immigration , taxation , defense , spending in detail , lots of detail , like lots of rope to hang yourself .
