CNBC host Jim Cramer called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “Crazy Nancy” to her face in an interview that aired Tuesday morning.
The host of “Mad Money” and former hedge fund manager was interviewing the “Nurse Diesel” of American politics regarding stalled negotiations on a fourth coronavirus stimulus package when the insult slipped out.
“What deal can we have, Crazy Nancy — I’m sorry, that was the President,” Cramer said, only slightly mortified at the error. “I have such reverence for the office, I would never use that term.”
Pelosi, clearly taken aback, replied: “But you just did. But you just did.”
WIBC host Tony Katz covered the Cramer/Pelosi exchange on today’s edition of the Popcorn Moment.
