CNBC Host Jim Cramer called Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi “crazy Nancy” during a Tuesday interview with her.
During the interview, Cramer asked Pelosi about what deal could be made with Republicans on a stimulus package, after Senate Democrats blocked the GOP’s package Thursday. During the question, Cramer called the speaker “crazy Nancy”, a name given to her by President Donald Trump.
Cramer immediately corrects himself, saying he was sorry and that he was quoting Trump. He also went on to say he would never use such a term. To which Pelosi responded by telling Cramer that he just used the president’s term, while smiling.
“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,” Pelosi responded.
