Senator Elizabeth Warren recently shared a photo of herself with the "Fearless Girl," a statue which has been called a symbol of standing up to corporations even though it was commissioned by a Wall Street Firm.
On Wednesday’s “Pat & Stu,” the guys talked about the real background of the “Fearless Girl” statue that has been standing up to the famous bronze bull in Manhattan’s Financial District. Warren, who captioned her picture with the statue “fight like a girl,” postures herself as someone who fights Wall Street and corporations. But as Stu Burguiere pointed out, she’s posing with a statue commissioned by a Wall Street investment house that actually advertises one of the firm’s funds.
“So this idiot went there to pose with a statue to make this big stance against Wall Street, not realizing the statue itself came from Wall Street and was an advertisement for Wall Street,” Stu explained.
Pat Gray had a couple of questions, including, “Why was this company allowed to put a statue in the middle of this plaza and nobody even knew they did it?”
Another big question was how State Street Global Advisors, the firm that commissioned a statue which purportedly advocates fighting big corporations, could be worth a whopping $2.4 trillion.
