Suze Orman to Dubya: “You Owe the American People Every Penny of Your Fortune and Your Family’s Fortune”
Who doesn’t love SNL star Kristen Wiig’s impersonation of CNBC financial adviser and shoulder-pad suit lesbian Suze Orman? Nobody, that’s who– which is why, by the transitive property of inequalities, we also love Suze Orman– despite her telling us that we couldn’t take that trip to Cabo this year because we have crushing debt and zero income.
Why else do we love Suze? Well, because it takes a lesbian to really dress down our former Failure-in-Chief.
In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Orman took President Bush to task for his failure to take control of the financial crisis– and then absolving himself of responsibility. WWD writes:
“Sitting in a green room after her TV interviews, she lambasts everyone from Alan Greenspan to Larry Summers to the former president of the United States, who holds an especially dark place in her heart. “Commander in Chief?” she says of George W. Bush, with a mix of disbelief and scorn. “You blew up every single financial vessel we had and if you think you aren’t personally responsible, well, the blame starts at the top. There is no higher top than you, SIR! If I were you, I would feel so absolutely horrific that I would take every penny I had and distribute it to anybody and everybody to help them in whatever way I could. You owe the American people every penny of your fortune and your family’s fortune.”
Somebody’s just been denied.
