After her “nobody got rich on their own” speech inspired many, she now has a sequel — stumping Wall Street regulators with the posing of obvious questions at a hearing. This awesome moment has 500,000 YouTube views in 1 day.
Rachel Maddow gushed over this video on Friday night’s show.
By getting the head of the Securities and Exchange Commission (which regulates Wall Street) to admit that they have no idea when they last took a bank to trial, Warren exposed that the cop on the beat isn’t much of a cop.
She also coined a new term: Too big for trial.
The best part? This was Warren’s very first banking hearing! There’s a lot more to come, and we can all be proud to have helped her get elected!
