Elizabeth Warren is no fan of Hank Greenberg, and on Friday, she took to Twitter to let the world know.
The U.S. Senator from Massachusetts had harsh words for Greenberg, reacting sternly to news that the former AIG CEO and chairman has donated $10 million to Right to Rise, the super PAC supporting the presidential campaign of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. She attacked Greenberg's for running the insurance giant as it "recklessly gambled on mortgage-backed securities" and criticized him for using part of his AIG fortune "to try to save Jeb Bush's dying presidential campaign."
She concluded the Twitter rant with, "This is business as usual for Wall Street and Washington insiders, and it stinks."
Let's get this straight: CEO Hank Greenberg ran AIG as it recklessly gambled on mortgage-backed securities...— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) January 8, 2016
Hank Greenberg left his company just before AIG took a $182 billion bailout from the Bush Administration...— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) January 8, 2016
Once his GOP friends left office, Greenberg sued the Obama Administration because - get this - the bailout wasn't generous enough for him...— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) January 8, 2016
And now, Greenberg is giving $10 million of his AIG fortune to try to save Jeb Bush’s dying Presidential campaign. https://t.co/buFLQUBaYR— Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) January 8, 2016
Not sure what’s more disgusting: That Jeb is pinning his 2016 hopes on his bro’s bailout $, or that bailed-out CEOs want to buy elections.
