President Trump scolded CNBC host Jim Cramer on Wednesday for apologizing after he shocked viewers by calling Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., “Loopy Nancy” to her face throughout a stay interview.
“Jim, you didn’t make a mistake. It’s true, and that’s why you mentioned it,” Trump tweeted to accompany video of Cramer’s apology. “No pandering!”
It began throughout a stay interview on Tuesday when Cramer pressed Pelosi about the continued discussions on Capitol Hill on coronavirus aid payments. Through the phase, Cramer raised eyebrows when he used President Trump’s nickname for Pelosi.
