Despite his company losing $2 billion for risky derivatives trading, JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon told NBC Sunday morning that he did not think the nation’s largest financial institutions were still engaging in reckless practices.
In an interview with Meet The Press host David Gregory, Dimon acknowledged that his company did make a “terrible, egregious” mistake but stressed how JP Morgan Chase would overcome it.
“Does it not tell you that the banking system is still several years after the financial collapse, too risky?” Gregory asked.
“I don’t think so,” Dimon replied. “It’s a question of size. This is not a risk that is life threatening to JP Morgan. This is a stupid thing that we should have never had done, but we are going to earn a lot of money for this quarter.”

1960s segregationist George Wallace would ‘smile’ at seeing Trump teargas protesters for a photo op: CNN’s Bakari Sellers
CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers said on Tuesday that watching President Donald Trump teargas a group of peaceful protesters so that he could have a photo opportunity reminded him of something he'd see segregationist Alabama Gov. George Wallace do.
"Yesterday, the president of the United States used teargas, he used the military against peaceful protesters," Sellers said. "The the only thing I could think of is George Wallace is looking over him with a smile."
Sellers then said he was "thoroughly pissed off" at conservative evangelicals who are remaining silent even as Trump continues to pour gasoline on the fire of racism while wrapping himself in the flag and the cross.
