Finally, CNBC joined the headlines. Tuesday, host Jim Cramer booked a sit-down with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Cramer probably thought this was a big get; then it crashed, then it burned.
In the middle of Cramer’s loud rant, he referred to Pelosi, to her face, as “Crazy Nancy.” He quickly backpedaled, blaming it on President Donald Trump. How does that even make sense? It doesn’t, take a look:

“What deal can we have Crazy Nancy,” he asks.
Not even Pelosi bought the excuse: “But you just [used it],” she responded to his desperate shuffle.
Amid the channel going viral, Cramer used his Twitter account to blame his segment, again, on Trump:
you know what i love? the president goes unchecked, calls her Crazy forever. I call it as as horrible and i am called out for doing so here. What a travesty…

Maybe Trump inserted the word “Crazy” into his tweet, too?
