WASHINGTON — President Trump on Wednesday admonished CNBC host Jim Cramer for “pandering” to Nancy Pelosi after he apologized for calling the powerful House Speaker “Crazy Nancy” to her face mid-interview.
“Jim, you didn’t make a mistake. It’s true, and that’s why you said it. No pandering!” Trump wrote in a tweet sharing a video of Cramer’s apology.
The outlandish host of “Mad Money” and former hedge fund manager was forced to issue a mea culpa on Tuesday evening after he insulted the 80-year-old California Democrat during an interview on stalled coronavirus stimulus negotiations.
“Earlier today, when I talked to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on ‘Squawk on the Street,’ I made a very stupid comment,” Cramer said on his show.
“It was a tongue-in-cheek attempt to make a point about the harsh tone of the negotiations in Washington, but it fell completely flat and I apologize for that,” he continued.
“As I said immediately after the comment, I want to make it clear that I have an incredible amount of respect for the Speaker and of course the office she holds,” he added.
The taunt — coined by President Trump — appeared to slip out of Cramer’s mouth as he pushed Pelosi on the failed talks.
“What deal can we have, Crazy Nancy — I’m sorry, that was the president,” the CNBC anchor said, scrambling to backtrack. “I have such reverence for the office, I would never use that term.”
Pelosi, who looked less than pleased, told Cramer: “But you just did. But you just did.”
“Oh come on, you know what I mean,” Cramer replied, downplaying the comment as a joke.
The 65-year-old TV personality’s name began trending on Twitter as pundits called for him to be fired in the wake of the embarrassing episode.
Pelosi’s office has not publicly commented on the exchange.
