Ocasio-Cortez vs. Wells Fargo

Jack Kemp

In a Congressional hearing, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tried to make the president of Wells Fargo Bank responsible for an oil pipeline spill (there has not been such a spill) on some project that Wells Fargo helped finance. She also tried to make Wells Fargo responsible for the "caging" of (illegal immigrant?) children.

I haven't heard such a discourse since the time I watched the Mad Hatter's Tea Party on the Walt Disney tv show as a child in the 1950s. There was only one thing missing from this pathetic attempt to guilt trip Wells Fargo, a bank that has done some customer abuses but not the two main ones Ocasio-Cortez wanted to stick them with. That missing item was that Ocasio-Cortez did not make an issue of how Wells Fargo drove the horses pulling their stagecoaches in the Nineteenth Century. Or perhaps AOC thinks Wells Fargo still has those stagecoaches today.

You can read what AOC said in her ignorance here.
