Wikipedia, bro

Porter later attended Harvard Law School, where she was the Notes editor for the Harvard Women's Law Journal. She studied under current U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, and graduated magna cum laude with her Juris Doctor in 2001.

Damn, he is one dumb son of a biatch.  The odds of any given Congressperson being a lawyer are extremely good.

While I agree with your attempt, in fact I'm just trying to bring a little joy to the world given the season and all.

Almost no one has any idea how satisfying it is to watch Katie tear Mnuchin up, every time he sticks his face up out of whatever bunker he hides in.  It's great science fiction combined with your favorite fetish porn.

The former head of OneWest "Foreclosures-R-Us" Bank, Steve Mnuchin, is one of the most hated men in consumer advocate pantheon of supervillains.


Mnuchin's apparent attempt to joke around with her is typical of the man.  There is a reason he's always had security around him ever since the OneWest days.  The one thing he really shares with Donald Trump is a complete inability to really empathize with normal people.  He's beneath contempt.

If the money trail is followed, he shall also be going to prison.

Stupid, and arrogant.  I love his smug "I have lawyers who work for me" response.

Lawyers are his footstools, you see.

Yep:  the class trump type - disparage the women, ignore them if you can, if you can't, trying to disparage.  Trying to disparage Katie is akin to cutting your toe nails with a chain saw.

That generally applies to cross-examination, but yeah he f*cked up. More than usual.

"Of course I'm not a lawyer. I hire lawyers. I buy and sell lawyers. I get them to fetch and carry. Now give me my money so I can send it to the people who desperately need it before the adults come back to the table, so stop being such a little person.

Oh, you
are a lawyer AND a seated Congresswoman, and will be AFTER I leave office? Well, that means I should be buying you next, right?"

This is what getting into banking can turn you into.

Same.
And I would never want to get on the wrong side of her. She will tear you apart.

WHY do people think they can get into verbal fencing matches with Porter, after all this time? Like, why? Do they enjoy the humiliation?
 
2020-12-02 6:13:24 PM  
What a condescending prick.
 
2020-12-02 6:13:32 PM  
I wish she'd looked him straight in the eye and said, "No, but I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night."
 
2020-12-02 6:13:40 PM  
Wha?

Did Steve Mnuchin just "are you a lawyer?" Katie freaking Portman?!

Oh, the lulz! ^_^
 
2020-12-02 6:14:01 PM  
Of course he didn't bother to research who would be questioning him and thought she's a moron who has no legal degree. He's a rich, white man who thinks he's the shirt and probably hasn't been talked back to since he was a kid.

Will be so glad to see MaDouche'n kicked out of that position!

I'm a big Katie fan but this exchange wasn't the best look for anyone
 
2020-12-02 6:15:38 PM  
This further confirms the the fact that the world needs a Katie Porter action figure, complete with her magic white board of doom. She's beyond awesome.

guys this attitude isn't gonna unite the country you guys

How did Katie not have a good look there?

Her point would be better made if she wasn't bouncing her signal off the moon.

One thing we can say in Mitt Romney's favour: the guy had binders with coloured tabs and subheadings. If the Dems ever called him in front of a committee the man could find the answer in seconds, even if he had a staffer do all the work beforehand. Watching him debate Elizabeth Warren would be a trip.

ginandbacon: I absolutely worship her...


Well, yeah.
Katie Portman freaking rules.
Every time I see her I am impressed.
She does not suffer fools lightly.
Big plus in my book.
Plus she's hella-smart and can think quickly on her feet.
More Katies in Congress would kick serious GOP ass.

Well, JD is an undergrad degree, which means she also probably studied under Alan Dershowitz, in the sense that both Dersh and Warren probably taught a required seminar. But it's nice to know which Master at the Harvard Kung Fu Temple Porter talks about, and which she pretends not to know.

No, liposuction to death... it would take longer.

But yes, we need more Katie Porters in the government, and more Ted Lieus and more...

There's that scene in Girl With Dragon Tattoo where Lisbeth Salander tases, then binds, then tattoos, and sticks a dildo up the butt, of her conservator(?). That's what needs to be done to Trump and everyone associated with Trump. Then, hang them upside down at the town squares of every major city. Baseball bats and hockey sticks shall be amply strewn about.

No, sadly that *is* Mnuchin's best look. Hard to tell, I know.

JD stands for Juris Doctor.It is the academic equivalent of a Doctorate degree.  It is a postgraduate degree.

The rest of your post is unintelligible nonsense

oh wow, the notes editor, she got to tell the students a year behind her that their work was shiat

//this lady is far more impressive than her 3L resume
//law students at Rutgers also got to listen to Warren's lectures

Love Katie Porter, but you cant school someone if they literally are too stupid or just don't care to realize they got schooled. Mnuchin has these problems
