Depending on where you are in the country, it’s dinner time. Which means you can 100 percent enjoy the wrecking of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with the adult beverage of your choice. She tried making her mark on Timothy Sloan, the CEO of Wells Fargo, during a hearing about mega banks. In the exchange, AOC tried gotcha questions on ICE detention centers, global climate cooling change of the hot hots, and pipelines. Each time, Timothy Sloan, without raising his voice, poked holes in all of AOC’s childhood dreams. Watch:
AOC: "Why was the bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with?"
SLOAN: "I don't know how to answer that question because we weren't." pic.twitter.com/VJJOcFSn7v

One of the best parts:
“So, hypothetically, if there was a leak from the Dakota Access pipeline, why shouldn’t Wells Fargo pay for the clean up of it since it paid for the construction of the pipeline itself?”
“Because we don’t operate the pipeline, we provide financing to the company that’s operating the pipeline.”
Imagine going to my home lender asking them to pay for dog poop on my home’s floor. Imagine me running to my bank to pay for the damage my car may endure after I pin a rubbernecker into a divider. Imagine going to a credit card company demanding they pay for a television after I get fat from sitting on my couch as I laugh at AOC defying the levels of stupidity. Imagine me suing AOC for breaking all my ribs.
Congratulations, New York. You elected yourself a grade-A dumbass. Proud of yourselves?
