  • She seems like she's a bit of a bitch lol at all the nicest of nicest bet she has many friends. I could be wrong lol

  • I love her

  • AOC is an absolute MORON

  • Wow. Alex 'Like so...' Cortes is the dumbest member in Congress.

  • This is legitimately terrifying. Imagine the hazard of making banks take responsibility for their customers actions... not only that but this is suggested by a congressperson that got enough votes by people who think like this to get into office... wow

  • So if the bank finances my car, and I cause an accident, the bank should pay for damages?

  • A risk they’re willing to take because they don’t face the costs! What a Broken system. Great on AOC for making her point clearly and effectively. Free markets are not supposed to be deregulated untaxed corporate orgies.

  • It's simple, in politics there are no fist fights. You have to use language and slick questioning to get people to make mistakes, misspeak and make statements that could potentially self incriminate, defame, or tarnish themselves or who they represent. Plain speaking allows for easy lies to fly under the radar and doesn't allow viewers to see in all context how the person on trial might respond under pressure. This is why AOC and many other politicians have to resort to these strategic conversational tactics to pin the defense. You people think you're so smart calling career politicians stupid when you just show your inferiority in understanding what just played out.

  • This is the same woman who complained about being described as "sassy". I'm a woman too and she is fucking "sassy". Seriously, her arguments are so petty and stupid and she needs to find real issues instead of asking a bank why they provide loans. She comes off as a bitter millennial.

  • She's trying but the stretch is just too far. Better to grill him over the illegal billing

  • He puts the LOAN in SLOAN

  • A serial killer has been caught at his home. Wells Fargo is the mortgage holder. Her logic is that Wells Fargo should be charged with murder

  • I will always stand by you my Bronx Sis. From your Brooklyn Bro !

  • Ocasio Kicks ass

  • God, she is so fucking stupid!

  • I love this lady

  • This woman man.. questioning the bank for doing its job?!

    • brunojake099 point she’s trying to get at is to loan responsibly. There are banks out there especially the newer ones that pride themselves on never investing in fossil fuels. Js

  • "I'm not aware... I'm not aware... I'm not aware..." Well okay, then. Dude's not aware. Instead of answering her questions point, he just reinterprets her questions in such a way that he can play dumb. Guess that's one way to absolve yourself of guilt. 🙄

  • AOC - Dumb, So if my bank loans money to a company or individual who in turn runs a meth lab or murders his family in that home. The bank has to take some or all responsibility?

  • For all the morons like AOC out there: banks lend money. That's their job, period. Not building pipelines or anything else for which they loan money. Her question about pipeline spill liability is analogous to asking if a bank who made a home loan should be liable if a plumber wrongly installed a toilet that flooded said house. What a freaking dumba$$. Her 15 minutes of fame are up.

  • If you finance a company so they can build a potentially environmentally hazardous pipeline YOU as the financier MUST take responsibility for not recognizing where your money is being invested. Thank you aoc

  • Damn AOC....you go girl!!! I know you r just a representative but make sure you have all your facts ready so that you can tighten your grip hold on the ballsacks of these douches Sorry...they got away with some stuff... But you go girl

  • How much pressure is AOC under. How much does she need to prepare for these hearings to not be dismissed like a child or a "stupid broad". Say what you want about her ideas, if more "regular people" had the fuckin balls to step up and run for public office and win we could actually hold these god dam CEOs accountable.

  • She’s asking genuine questions. Don’t need to like her, but could at least respect that she’s making a great point about who should cover the negative externalities of investments in fossil fuel energy and infrastructure (and calling the CEO out for claiming they don’t put profit over people, which as we’ve found out last year is not the case and never will be)

  • Wow - she is brilliant!

  • if a person has an account with you and their cousin hits a puppy with their car, arent you a puppy killer? lol

  • Wow, shes dumb

  • Wish all representatives were as "stupid" as Republicans think AOC is.

  • bunch of bootlicking retards here in the comments defending wells fargo

  • Proof that the monetary system was the downfall of mankind.

  • Omar. you dumbass. the pipeline youj mention doesntg exist. and why blame Wells Fargo for oil spills. that like me blaming my mortgage company if I get killed in my house. are you that stupid. please just stop it. cantg you tell a happy fucking story. Can't you stop accusing people of shit they are not doing.

  • if you are going to accuse somebody of caging children. have some fucking proof dumbass before opening your mouth. you are only making yourself look stupid.

  • Think about this, more people would have worked at the New York amazon plant then voted for her.

  • AOC should be impeached

  • Since she is a former bartender, she needs to take responsibility for all the people who have DUI's because they drive home from her bar

  • Ppl are so dumb, they hate on her so much that they completely miss the point of her line of questioning. Why is your bank financing all this BS??

    • GamerRadar there’s nothing that can validate this bank. They should have gone out of business a long time ago.

    • GamerRadar but if you as a person get a investment/loan and make no money and go bankrupt and also have to declare that you don’t get excused from making payments to your loans (I.e. student loans or any company starter funds or loans in business) then you as a person have to pay it. Why is a bank special? It’s not. Do the work. Pay your shit. No excuses. You say you have a problem with millennials and student loans but knowingly invest in un-American and in humane treatment of people for a supposed business and pay day. You’re out of your mind. This is banks and big rich men literally buying America and enslaving people, going bankrupt and having financial trouble doing so and people validating this. There has been MULITPLE lawsuits against this companies abuse of American people, racism, sexism, and literal law breaking on their improper banking and credit system abuse for over 30 years.

    • OH MY GOD A BANK FINANCES THINGS TO MAKE MONEY... guess banks shouldn’t invest in anything at all, get your own financing for your business.

    • RealTakerslady EXACTLY! This isn’t PERSONAL investments it’s a COMPANY/BANK investment... they are responsible for the funds they allocate to certain purposes. Take responsibility. If you personally spend your funds on drugs or anything else illegal were held responsible for that as individuals company’s, banks, and boards of people involved with these places should be held accountable.

  • You vile and pathetic lemmings on the left are disgusting. I support Wells Fargo 200%.

  • Wow she has no understanding of how businesses and banks work. Scary times in US politics.

  • Look at all the snowflakes in chat sensitive to oversight and accountability by someone elected by the people for the people 😂😂😂

  • I cant stand to listen or looking at this cunt. Shes so arrogant, annoying and better knowing yet she doesnt even know what shes talking about most of the time. Some people say she is attractive, i really dont see it. She makes me sick. The fakeness is strong with this one wich doesnt make her less disgusting

  • What a fucking idiot!!! Hypothetically She has got NO clue what she’s talking about. I bet you she can’t pass a pee-pee test 😉

  • AOC is evil and the anti-Christ

  • We should just give all our money to this Cortez lady so she can stop the war on global warming. (sarcasm)

  • She gets paid $170,000 per year to misinterpret how lending works in a economy.

  • She is not white -what is she doing there

  • lol The bank that financed her economics degree should be held accountable as well, then.

    • The bank that financed the trailer you live in and troll on the internet from should be held accountable too

  • This is why you do not let kids ask questions.

  • So if you finance something and don’t know about it you aren’t responsible? Im pretty sure financing a child internment camp makes you responsible.

  • If the bank does an “environmental risk assessment,” then they should pay when the environment is damaged.

  • Watching AOC grill the finance industry is reminiscent to watching McCain grill people.

  • Don’t use big words around her, she might not understand

  • Damn, she should’ve used more time on questions and follow-up and less on setting the questions up (context). Every time the bank rep. Answered a question I would’ve followed up with “what are you basing that on” I.E. You believe wellsfargo cares more about people than money? (Yes) “what are you basing that on? I would’ve kept him dancing as opposed to not answering the questions. Can you give “us” an example of wellsfargo putting Americans first? Him: we lent the pipelines money bc we analyzed the data. Me: “what did the data say?” I would’ve kept him dancing separating the facts that had then from his feelings now.

  • She asked a legit question. Corp America doesn't give a shit about Americans! This pipeline will destroy the water these people need to live and these banks are all profiting. Wake up America!

  • She has got to be the DUMBEST SON OF A BITCH!!!! No disrespect to her mother!!!

  • I stopped watching when she pulled the liberal shock tactics with "caging children". She wants open borders, she wants your job and your money for someone who she deems more deserving. She is the new Stalin.

  • Love AOC

  • The comments illustrate the sheer ignorance of the American people. AOC is asking if you share in the revenue from something through your financing, why are you not also sharing in the losses caused by the thing you financed.

  • People like AOC make me see the upside of domestic abuse.

  • FEEL THE PRESSURE AOC, FEEL IT. THE WORLD IS WATCHING! O_____________________O ur good, better than 80% of the population, keep failing, keep growing, time moves forward not backward, and it is on your side.

    • Lavender Ocean better than 80% of the population? Yikes

  • ladies and gentlemen and transgenders, I present you President Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

  • She seems to have already made her mind that wells Fargo is evil. It is also clearly apparent that she has no concept of how businesses and especially financial businesses are run. Investors strive to make a return and analyze all the angles to get to that.

  • I love her!!!

  • Now the left says you’re a criminal if you do business with customers that have different political views than theirs.

  • So guys, dude rear ended me and Wells Fargo financed his auto loan. Should I sue them or go after him individually?

    • Wells Fargo didn't perform a risk assessment they deemed environmentally safe here... hmm, seems different.

  • Washington is a place of smoke and mirrors , she's coming in swinging a bat !!! When people are fed bs for so long , they can't see when someones not playing to old two step and assume they are upsetting the establishment which they should

  • She might not be able to bar-be-que but she can sure grill....

  • People are actually defending Wells Fargo.. people in this country are brainwashed I swear.

    • I think ppl are more seeing how ridiculous this woman is

  • SNL needs to spoof this, finally the Democrats have someone that can provide as much comedy gold as Trump lol.

    • I think you missed the point at the end, JF.

    • Everyday Wells Fargo denies mortgages everyday based on high risk. This pipe line? Fuck it why not?! It's not like pipe lines leak or something. The amount of support Republicans give to cooperations is astounding. Then they turn around and shit on Americans rights. But at least a basement boi felt like he "owned a lib"

    • What? One is a politician, the other is a moron in the largest position of power. Nothing will be as funny as a guy who likes both halves of the bible equally and won't quote his favorite verse because it's "personal", spelled hamberders and then served a garbage meal to players, covfefe, "Nancy as I call her", it would be funny if he didn't sound like my grandfather in his early stages of dementia.

    • i thought this was the spoof.

  • Remember guys, corporations are individuals just like you! Not subsidized or bailed out by tax payers! Just people like you!

    • False, banks are bailed out all the time by the Tax payer and most major corporations pay virtually no taxes on gains

  • She’s an idiot

  • Jesus this chick is dumb af

  • Why does she ask him questions if she doesn’t allow him to answer?!

    • Gabriel Z. Then she should stop making sarcastic comments and dragging on her words. I get it, it’s annoying when they try to stall, but she cuts him off because he’s not saying what she wants to hear. And I don’t even think he’s trying to stall, he has a genuine look of confusion. Kind of like “are you kidding me right now?!”

    • Its called grandstanding. Ask Kamala Harris & Liz Warren about it....

    • She only has 5 minutes. I get frustrated as well when they are cut short.

  • This poor poor girl

  • Money grows on trees... Why do you think banks have branches... -AOC

  • Anyone else feel like the other lefties sat back with pride as they watched their future bloom as if a 3 year old learning to paint the walls with spaghetti while thinking she will be able to write her name in no time and I hope it is with her own feces. They grow up so fast. She is like what Trey Goudy would look like if Trey had the face of a donkey and the mind of a kangaroo with alcohol fetal syndrome.

  • Isnt it true that you funded a jew who liked to sniff glue while he drew a blue magoo in a zoo in Naboo swimming in a shoe in a pool of dew with his crew while the wind blew? -AOC Im sorry I cant answer that because you have no clue what you are talking about and now you have confused me too -Sloan

  • So is it just me or are we like confusing a loan with an insurance policy?

    • just you, well there are probably others as dumb as you but they aren't worth mentioning

  • And there you have it ladies and gentlemen...Millenial Politicians

  • love how all the chuds sitting at their parents home in their crusty underwear always hoard these videos critiquing someone with a degree about here work history and etc. as if any of you would last a second in congress. You can brigade all on youtube that you want but in terms of public opinion people like her a support her acts. Highly suggest leaving your smell echo chambers and actually do things with your local community.

  • These hearings are a waste, no one ever goes to prison, they get "embarrased" on national TV, woopty freeking doo

  • “Ok, I’ll move on” lmfao what a dunce

  • Wow! AOC is a complete clown.

  • This chick is off her rocker

  • AOC: Why did you start your business? BUSINESS MAN: to make money and profits AOC: why? BUSINESS MAN: what you mean? AOC: don't you think that's immoral? BUSINESS MAN: No its business AOC: have thouroughly read my "GREEN NEW DEAL" BUSINESS MAN: WHAT?

  • She’s so dumb. She’s sick.

  • Is she a Dummycrapt or a Stupidcrat? can’t believe this bartender was elected. Well only in New York something like this can happen. 🐂💩

  • A bartender questioning the CEO of the 3rd largest bank in the US.

    • swaraj bharali She’s a Congresswoman and an elected official.

  • It’s hilarious that she thinks she’s getting somewhere The most confident idiot in the world

  • That was..... cringe.

  • old buckteeth pornstar AOC has no credibility

  • A risk that we were willing to take. Well pay for it then bitch.

  • The Pornstar AOC owned again

  • AOC: “Hypothetically speaking, if unicorn farts were destroying the ozone layer, should Wells Fargo be held accountable?”

  • I love you AOC but this was rough lol

  • She is a moron. Wtf is she talking about

  • I just want her to sit on my face and lit me lick that spicy latina ass, then I'd fuck the feminism out of her. Trump Gang nibba, smash cholita thots fam.

  • Good gosh she's an actual moron.

  • If your mom's friend knows the brother of the guy who financed a project that is now unpopular, watch out. They'll be after you next. Remember the Kulaks.

  • Not a fan of Wells Fargo, but AOC is reaching here. Obviously those who own the business /exploit the oil should be held responsible for costs implied by their operations. It's the government which should determine the legal bar structure for that. If legally the owners would be billed for any damages, it would become an integrated part of the balance sheet, upon which banks would be responsible for reevaluating the conditions to grant financing. Can't finance private for profit prisons; then make them illegal instead of a placing a moral appeal with a capitalistic structure.

  • AOC did have ridiculous questioning and I have liberal views
