The community banking lobbyist whom Jamie Dimon called a "jerk" fired back Thursday, likening the JPMorgan CEO to the villainous banker in "It's a Wonderful Life."
Camden Fine, CEO of the industry group Independent Community Bankers of America, said Dimon is channeling his inner Mr. Potter, the big banker from the classic Frank Capra movie who sought to undermine the underdog loan provider George Bailey.
"I guess we found out yesterday that if you have a policy disagreement with Mr. Dimon, you're a jerk," Fine told CNBC's "Squawk Box".
"Mr. Potter said something akin to that to George Bailey in 'It's a Wonderful Life' because Potter wanted to turn Bedford Falls into Potterville. I guess Jamie wants to turn America into Jamieville," Fine said.
A spokesperson for JPMorgan said the company did not immediately wish to comment.
