      Hahahah mr slown

    2. Slab Rider

      I think we’ve just met the future FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT of The United States

    3. King Hicks

      Another one for Queen cortez!

    4. King Hicks

      How come he didn't know much about the project he isn't concerned about his return investment.

    5. Jack Hagon

      It’s so clear that she does not grasp cause and effect or have any understanding of basic economics. You can she how idiotic she sounds when she attempts to links the Dakota pipeline to global warming than insinuate that banks should have to pay for sea walls lamo maybe she should get one of the drivers I see everyday on the morning commute and demanded they help build the sea wall to for driving to work....at least we can all look up to her as an example of excellence she has been driving a Tesla for 40 years now , super impressive

    6. kilian111

      Jeez...she's really friggin retarded.

    7. aber7278

      So if the banks lend you money and you go buy a car and wreck yourself the bank should pay the hospital bill and all damages caused by you?

    8. Thumb Print

      'It was a risk we were willing to take' - banker on investment in Dakota pipeline. What risk is the bank taking if they are not willing to pay for the clean up when the pipe line leaks and ruins the environment? 'Why was the bank involved in the caging of children?' Ha ha, AOC follows the money so these dirty investments get exposed - keep up the good work. Rich bankers live their lovely lives on the profits from these dirty investments. Go AOC.

    9. Joe Morales

      I think AOC should ask questions in fields she is familiar with, like......... or perhaps...... ok, ok! Hmmmmmm..

      1. Luke Skywalker

        Like, ya know... Totally. Lol

    10. Andrew Lauder

      Has anyone actually been sitting at their desk in work and though imagine if as a collective group everyone worker in this office just stood up and walked out... refused to return to work and demanded a higher pay what would be achieved there. Imagine the world coming together collectively and stopped paying tax’s, stopped putting money into banks, stopped working to make other rich and worked on their own life’s were money and power was not a thing... the constraints that hold us down are amazingly enough something we could easily stop but instead we fight argue and refused to work together... humanity ladies and gentlemen. Are you proud?

    11. Shaun Weiss

      The US has two and a half million miles of pipelines criss crossing the country. There have been how many spills? I’d say their track record is pretty damn good

    12. Dave Lowe

      When is someone going to have the fortitude to just ask her if she is nuts?

    13. legobuilder 369

      AOC asking questions that no ones does Company representative: uuuhhhhhh..... uuummmmm.... stuttering Stanley!

    14. Vin Denap

      AOC keeps telling him 2 plus 2 is 5 and he has to keep telling her it's 4

      1. Vin Denap

        +legobuilder 369 The banks are dying to give me money, they don't leave me alone, the only difference is I know I'll have to pay them back one day and I don't blame other people if I'm in debt with them

      2. legobuilder 369

        Vin Denap she’s talking to liars and we all know this! When has any bank given you money?? Meaning when has it helped anyone with compound growth?!

    15. Jiji C.

      Some of the analogies in the comments are comparing apples to oranges

    16. Craig White

      Most of her questions are just plain ignorant and accomplish nothing.

    17. paulspydar

      its bloody stupid to hold a bank responsible! Can you imagine if every thing a bank finances (gives business loans ) is then held responsible for the outcome ?

    18. paulspydar

      I really get a bad feeling about AOC , she is really smug snotty & stuck up . thinks she knows it all & is better than all her peers.

    19. Task Force 131

      She is so stupid lol like the rest of Democrats

    20. David Taylor

      Cortez is a Worthless Cunt.

    21. Childofearth

      In other words they payoff was worth the risk. They cared little for the environmental damage because the money they’ll make will outweigh the damages. Why put the environment in danger in the first place? 🤷🏻‍♂️

      1. Thumb Print

        You already answered your own question - they are not taking any risks because they don't care a brass monkey about the environment and shrug off any responsibility for paying for the clean up when there is a spillage. It's win-win for the bank.

    22. Childofearth

      I know they hear “Cortez” and instantly fume 😂😂😂

    23. The Death

      *_AOC FAKE NEWS, SO FAKE!_*

    24. Jennifer Gruber

      This proves anyone that can make vapor on a mirror can be a congressman. Not a god damned brain in her god damn head.

    25. Kevin Odom

      This woman has lost her damn mind.

      1. Freddy Again

        Your guy lost his memory. AOC 2024!!!!!

    26. Mr All About The U

      Why the fuck is she even up there man. This is the catch me outside kid as a politician.

    27. iseeu1980

      "The Corporate States of America"

    28. Nathan Mosby

      For all you people here that thinks she doesn't know what she's talking about...why don't you run for Congress and show her and the rest of us how it's done....this young lady is only going to get smarter, much smarter...she's right in the middle of things and I see her STANDING TALL

      1. Nathan Mosby

        +Thomas Ford why don't you get elected and show her how it is done...or your just going to sit back and criticize?

      2. Thomas Ford

        she doesn't even know what a tax break is fam

    29. Michelle Meyer

      Typical white man elitist answer........."I'm not aware of that." They can twist it anyway they want but their disgusting pigs.

    30. aynaz alaei

      All you guys mocking her and her "knowledge" .. she is proven again and again that she does her research and her questions are always punching to the line. I can't believe you guys would side with banks that clearly are financing harm to people and environment. You guys are probably the same pro-life assholes who are still missing the point and are just angry that this woman has been pursuing a path that other politicians were too scared to pursue. I salute you AOC!

    31. Seized Noodle

      So if I crash my car and it’s financed the bank should have to pay for a new car right?

    32. Doggo Unchained

      We need a Charisma on Command video on her

    33. Erebus2075

      disgusting people, they are not even people but should be seen as monsters/demons... just kill them and be done with it... it's a disgusting joke to allow them to sit there and lie through omission and word-twisting... kill them, take the things they stole from everyone and give it back to the people and move on to a better future

    34. Angus Darlin'

      Entertainment isn't what it used to be. She is such a clown. The left hired a distraction. Nothing more.

    35. Frank Morris

      So hypothetically if AOC had any brains she would be a good politician. Hypothetically speaking.

    36. Jake Jacob

      AOC is a JACKASS!

      1. Mechanical Blurr

        Ikr fighting for human rights what a cunt

    37. Survivor Turley

      She has no clue what she is doing. Wonder how she gets her head up her ass when she talks?

    38. Mr. Canada

      Wow --- This is the famous OC ? You would think she would at the very least come prepared to research some basic facts on what WF actually financed...she looks horrible. She also needs to get some professional voice training on how to correctly annunciate her words, form proper sentence structure etc, and improve her overall nasally speaking capability beyond Grade 12. PS - do not to attend a committee hearing with questions written on the back of a cocktail napkin.

    39. smallaxe

      My new favorite comedy. She's got that delusional social justice, nonsense spewing locked down. What's the name of this show? Can I get season one on DVD over at amazon?

    40. Mike Magnum

      I swear, AOC is the dumbest human on the planet. Listening to her questions is akin to kids playing superhero: Kid 1: Ok, so pretend that I'm going to use my heat vision. Kid 2: Yeah but if you did that I would "BJzzoot" you with my repulsor ray.. If only this idiot knew what a repulsor ray was...

    41. Matthew Barnes

      "I'm unsure as to how to answer your question," = Polite for you're so fucking stupid as well as hanging onto reality by a thread that's more thin tban the most teeny tiny of a soy boy's peepee and I'm not s psychiatrist.

    42. Akoni Ah Yat

      How dumb can 1 woman be

    43. cold water

      stupid little girl !

    44. kleiden diamond

      We should have 100 Latina senators

    45. SuperiorHealthNC

      Wtf

    46. SuperiorHealthNC

      Dumb dumb...smdh

    47. TG Leviathan

      haha crazy cat lady cortez just did a quick ICE is caging children and moved on. what a gem.

    48. Apache Chief

      So hypothetically..............

    49. J.J. Herndon

      what a fucking moron

    50. Aggie Blondi

      So, if you conclude that you are willing to invest in a risky business, why not be responsible when disaster happens?

      1. Warner Bros

        like when a bank finances a car n a car crash happens the bank should be responsible for the damage done by the car?

    51. Micah Vogan

      This woman is looking for a headline. Some dumbass questions she is proposing. Holding a bank responsible for financing companies that choose to do whatever they please with their money. Maybe she should get into them financing cars to people that kill while drunk driving. So insane

    52. Colt Todd

      show us your tits. stop smiling . show us your ass .

    53. K

      Not a fan of Wells Fargo, however, here is some food for thought: How do you get in office when you don't even know about 101Fact Checkin? Who financed her and will they finance the cleanup of clamorous conjecture?

    54. GEOFF C

      What a joke...I can't believe people vote people like this in office. By her logic, every bank should be held liable for, well, everything... DUI = go after the bank who financed the car. House fire = go after the bank for funding the purchase. Bad senator = go after the bank for allowing AOC to have a credit card, car, house, etc.

    55. James

      Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez=Comic

      1. smallaxe

        So true.. she's friggin hilarious. She is joking right?

    56. Martin Rivera

      She studied political science from the school house rocks cartoons!

    57. Jose Zuniga

      The boss that lost 25000 jobs

    58. Dyana S

      Final answer by Wells Fargo: "It was a risk we were willing to take."

      1. F.

        And? Are investments risk free?

    59. hisardo dagmar

      She's not that sharp huh? For someone that has been hyped quite much

      1. Killed_By_The_Architect -

        Shes hyped because she's brown and has tits that's it. Stupid fucking feminists and race baiters dont care if she's dumb as a box of rocks, which she is, they just want a female president if its an ethnic one that's even better. This cunt or any of the other worthless unqualified bitches become president you can kiss this country goodbye.

    60. Damian Caniglia

      The bank was just financing. The question is why is American government allowing this huge pipe line in the first place to be built unsafely or at all and not putting into renewable energy

    61. WILLY LYNCH

      If she didn't have the paper to read that some else wrote for her she would be 100X more retard.

    62. WILLY LYNCH

      "Do you put profits over business". Yeah dumb ass it a damn bank. All they do it collect money, it's kinda they point.

    63. niagra898

      2. Erebus2075

        and they are completely ignoring that is not their right to choose that for Everyone!.. they got no right to do so and should be destroyed for doing it

    68. Michael Bonade

      Should I feel sorry for her Wasn’t this girl in the movie version of RENT?!?.....she was a horny junkie or something

    69. warrior 1972

      this moron should have gone into porn-lord knows she has the "mouth" for it!

    70. usernamemaybe

      Whether they want it or not they hold part of the responsibility...you can't take choices based on your interests and then wash your hands

    71. J m

      Cortez Ocasio butt fumes, let’s take it in real time...

    72. The Diamond Dimanian

      i'm sorry but women should not be in ANY form of congress unless they know what the hell there doing. ( and yes i'm a women too ) i mean there are somethings you just need to leave to the men.

    73. timluns

      Wells Fargo is on par with Monsanto, they are companies ready to roundup as much cash as they can at the citizens expense. And our Government does nothing to protect us from the crimes of these multi-billion dollar criminal organizations

    74. Geoffrey Sakraida

      AOC is no Nancy Drew.

    75. David Irwin

      What a ficktard like she knows anything about anything fucking joke

    76. Dylaney

      This guy: "I have no recollection".... "I do not know"...... "I am not aware".

    77. BeatleLoverification

      Everytime she talks my IQ dtops 3 points

    78. Michael Thompson

      The only thing worse than a stupid person in power is a stupid person who believes they are intelligent. She certainly fits the bill on this one.

    79. Legion

      Hold wells Fargo responsible for climate change, They didn't finance the busted pipeline...where do they get these fucking people...hold Cortez responsible for the depletion of the ozone every time she farts fine her $100...get rid of these people already

    80. dubi186

      Is this lady sane?

    81. Ryan A

      lol so wait, because someone FINANCED a company to do something with said money. That lender is now 100% liable for the mishaps or unpopular operations that company decides to do with said money? FUCK THAT!!! Keystone pipeline leaking isn't Wells Fargo's fault because they agreed to giving a Business Loan....Pretty sure that is the fault of the COMPANY WHO BUILT AND MAINTAINS IT.

    82. their all the way

      Democrats want free healthcare but hates high tax...... Well "shitttttttt" how we gonna pay for it.

      1. their all the way

        +Msstyles165 why delete your comments

      2. their all the way

        +Msstyles165 28000 people in America die each year due to lack of health insurance.... The Medicare for all will triple the death count.

      3. their all the way

        +Msstyles165 Even more would be lost.... In England, to you know the waiting time. 62 days you'll have to wait till you can see a doctor..... Just imagine people with cancer having to wait 2 months just to see a doctor

      4. Msstyles165

        their all the way well guess what. millions of lives are CURRENTLY being lost. you tell me which is worse.

      5. their all the way

        +Msstyles165 yes it would do more harm than good. It is estimated that over a million jobs would be lost.

    83. Jo el

      Here is how wells fargo (as well as all other banks) financing works, they see an opportunity to make money off of loans, they then create the money ( based on the fractional reserve lending system) out of thin air, leaving you to pay back the entire amount plus interests...and if they get into trouble with bad lending practices the government (aka the taxpayers, aka you, us) bails them out. What AOC is doing is whats needed to fix this broken system, im glad she is getting her feet wet for 2028

    84. Dumb games 7

      Bahahaha...she is a moron and won't last long ...just like Kamala and Omar!!!

    85. Ras Alghul

      AOC is so dumb. This shows how much Progressives love regulations and red tape. If she is implying banks will now be responsible for the operational integrity of any organization they lend money to - I guess we can skyrocketing interest rates in the future! So if an entrepreneur wants to open a restaurant and a customer gets food poisoning, the restaurant owner AND the bank is responsible? Does that mean the banks have to get subject matter experts to oversee operational measures on a daily basis to any organizations they lend money to? This lack of foresight and logic is why the Green New Deal is written the way it is - like a letter to Santa Claus.

    86. Vaishnav Pande *_*

      Triggered replies in 3... 2... 1....

    87. Ryan Grider

      If it was a risk they were willing to take, then they should be a party to the damages done.

    88. Uniquascaper

    89. scott douglas

      She’s just upset because they turned down her loans because of her credit score

    90. Tati

      I’ve never been so interested in politics before 😳😳

      1. Internet Critic

        Yet you get interested on politics now after all these dumbass questions? Please stay out of politics

      2. Dob Klzynskovik

        +Well Yea spoken like a badass 5th grader that hurls insults instead of arguments.

      3. Alex N

        +Brutus Tan if you can't see the point she's trying to make you're mad ignorant. The fact is corruption is pretty much legal in this country and it shouldnt be.

      4. Childofearth

        Tati Women are a powerful force and even stronger in politics 😈!

    91. KOHF34

      Those glasses do not do her justice.

    92. J Neuman

      A not-built yet pipeline has already leaked 5 times. Not good when Congress turns into a social experiment. I'm super excited that she gets to vote on tax policy and a plethora of other things that affect my family and I. What a dummy.

    93. DiDi Nwabude

      I'm confused...

    94. blank face

      Go back to bar tending

    95. Barry Lincoln

      What happens when you allow people with Down syndrome to Congress. Perhaps the dumbest women in power. Media builds her up for our entertainment. Hilarious

    96. Tawnia Baze

      She has no idea what she’s talking about and has no idea how the world works. Go back to bartending little girl!! One term was enough for us to realize just how dumb she really is!

    97. Lui V

      Is it just me or is C-span purposely putting their logo in front of AOC's name. Typical move. Its 2019 ,you can move the logo to to left.

    98. Brian Cook

      AOC is brain dead.

    99. Ace Drummer

      Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is wasting americas time and money

    100. The Last Rebel Show

      She’s one term, She will be gone Nov 3 2020! Thank God! 👍
