JP Morgan big kahuna Jamie Dimon is being called “tone deaf” for his Christmas card featuring he and his family hitting tennis balls all over his palatial digs. He’s really saying, “hey look at me, I can break stuff and it doesn’t matter.” Of course, never mind the fact that millions are about to lose their unemployment benefits because of a do-nothing U.S. Congress.
Jamie Dimon is seen in the Christmas photo swinging his tennis racket as wife Judy and their three daughters laugh and chill in the background. Must be nice, right? The card is tasteless. This is typical of a one-percenter.
Considering the massive numbers of foreclosures, underwater mortgages and families still digging out from the recession, it’s pretty insensitive to see guys like Jamie Dimon living high off the hog and raking in record profits. It’s a sad commentary that Dimon and his bros have managed to sweet-talk prosecutors into no criminal prosecution settlements over the reckless market manipulation that just about brought Wall Street to its knees.
