House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is used to getting pampered by the Fake News Media.
So-called “journalists” trip over themselves with adoration for the first female Speaker.
But this top CNBC host is in hot water after what he just called Nancy Pelosi to her face.
CNBC’s Jim Cramer landed an exclusive interview with House Speaker Pelosi.
It’s not often the Speaker goes on networks besides fake news CNN and MSNBC.
So when Cramer challenged Pelosi on the failure of negotiations over the coronavirus relief bill, Pelosi wasn’t prepared for what was about to come next.
The famed fast-talking host called Pelosi “Crazy Nancy,” the President’s favorite nickname for the Speaker, to her face.
Immediately, Cramer knew he stepped in it and tried quickly backpedaling.
“What deal can we have, Crazy Nancy? I’m sorry, that was the president, I have such reverence for the office I would never use that term,” Cramer said.
“But you just did. But you just did,” a visibly stunned Pelosi responded.
Cramer took to social media to try and apologize further, claiming he was imitating the President in an attempt to show how toxic the political atmosphere is on Capitol Hill.
“I challenge anyone to listen to the interview and think I wasn’t imitating what the president says and how repulsive I find it,” he tweeted.
“It was a tongue-in-cheek attempt to make a point about the harsh tone of negotiations in Washington,” Cramer added. “But it fell completely flat and I apologize for that.”
The truth is though, “Crazy Nancy” Pelosi is mad with power right now and it’s hurting the American people.
As POLITICO reported on a conference call with Democrats, Pelosi believes it is in Democrats’ best political interests to avoid striking any deal on a coronavirus relief bill before the election.
Any sort of a agreement would be seen as Donald Trump walking away with a key legislative victory and send hard working Americans stimulus checks just weeks before voters go to the polls.
Negotiations didn’t fall apart because Trump was mean to Pelosi.
They were deliberately sabotaged because Pelosi is holding the American economy hostage in hopes that it benefits her party in November.
