– “Did you have a specific number of people’s lives you needed to ruin before you considered your business model a success?”

– “What section of the poor & disenfranchised have you yet to exploit for profit, & how are you working to address that?”

– “Why aren’t you in jail for sending a literal ton of gold bullion to Iran in violation of sanctions?”

– “When Jamie Dimon (See eats babies are they served rare? I understand anything above medium-rare is considered gauche.”
