As we talked about last week, New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez once again became the butt of every meme after her hilariously unprepared interaction with Wells Fargo CEO Tim Sloan.
The line of questioning was clearly written to make the freshman lawmaker go viral. The trouble is that it appeared the questions were written by AOC herself. You could tell because there was not a shred of facts included. All of it was ideological nonsense designed to show the fresh face catching an evil fat cat bankster in a classic “gotcha” moment. What really happened was the reverse.
In essence, AOC blamed Wells Fargo for things that 1.) haven’t happened and 2.) having nothing to do with them. Per the Congresswoman’s logic, if the bank lends money to a company, and that company does something bad with that money, it’s the banks fault. It’s the same logic we’re seeing in Sandy Hook right now as families were given the green light to sue gun manufacturers. none of it makes any sense.
This image may seem hyperbolic, but it’s really that far off from what actually happened.
