Last week, there was a GameStop  (GME) - Get Report hearing on Capitol Hill which included people such as Keith Gill, aka Roaring Kitty, and Vlad Tenev, CEO of Robinhood, who were present to testify in front of members of the House Financial Services Committee. 

Gill reiterated that he likes the stock of GameStop. 

Jim Cramer, despite being off last week, penned a column on the GameStop hearing last week. 

"...Let's bring it all together with the wallstreetbets and Reddit characters. In many ways, these are my heroes because I am sick of the fat cats who come on our air and infiltrate Wall Street with what I regard as some of the most patronizing, self-serving genuine gibberish, all designed to get your money but keep you from getting rich. As I say at the beginning of "Mad Money," I want to make you rich, really rich," he wrote. 

"I think Reddit does, too. I think wallstreetbets does it, too. Do I like how they do it? Wrong question. As long as it is legal, I am not going to rain on that parade. Let the nattering nabobs of negativity do that. I am in favor of taking on anyone standing in the way of making you money or keeping you in your paycheck chains, and that's not anything new for me. Reddit and wallstreetbets are fascinating sheets, and although I find them repetitive and scatological, they seem harmless enough and at times, like with GameStop, ingenious, because they were as smart as Plotkin was -- well, how about this word my mother never liked me to say -- stupid," he continued.
