7 Things We Learned Watching Scott Angelus On Live TV

TGFi CIO, author and "Prince of Wall Street" Scott Angelus appeared on Financial News Channel's Power Breakfast this morning with fill-in host James Locke, for what he probably expected to be a fluffy segment hocking his new book, Trading Up. Instead, the world was treated to a 10-minute live interview train wreck birthed from a Shonda Rhimes fever dream. We've picked our 7 favorite moments for you but we recommend watching the full interview here. This is a fictional, promotional post for the short film SPiN starring Hartley Sawyer and Wilson Cleveland.

4. He Totally Gets America

When you grow up like Gatsby in the enchanted forrest of Connecticut, you learn a thing or two about what everyday Americans need to survive which, according to Angelus, has something to do with soda.

5. He Was a Fat Kid

But it's OK because Scotty was a fat kid and his dad gave him a horse-y nickname. His struggle is SO real.

7. He Just Doesn't Give a Sh*t

When sitting in a seat as hot as this, most execs of Angelus' ilk turn on the teflon and lie through their veneers. When you're The Prince of Wall Street, you serve nay, sling a heaping pile of epic one percenter realness.
