Jim Cramer apologizes for 'Crazy Nancy' remark in interview with Nancy Pelosi

Jim Cramer apologizes for 'Crazy Nancy' remark in interview with Nancy Pelosi

"I have to start recognizing that maybe I am using a typewriter", he said of his possibly outdated gold storage practices. "I respect you. Anyone who gives their life to public service and is speaker of the House should not be called that name".

This is the way Jim Cramer addressed the two-time Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, during an interview on his CNBC show, "Mad Money" on Tuesday.

"I have too much reverence for the office", Cramer blustered.

At one point in the interview, Cramer questioned Pelosi about a CNN interview days earlier in which she had said she was optimistic about the likelihood of a deal as talks between Trump administration officials and congressional Democrats remain stalled. Cramer responded, "Oh, come on, you know what I mean", to which Pelosi agreed, "I know what you meant". But he stopped himself by saying, "I'm sorry".

"But you just did", laughed Pelosi. "It's true, and that's why you said it", Trump tweeted to accompany video of Cramer's apology. "You know what I mean".

He immediately indicated that he was channeling President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly used that derisive nickname for Pelosi.

In one tweet, Cramer compared himself to Trump, writing, "you know what i love? the president goes unchecked, calls her insane forever".

"Example: CNBC's terrible Jim Cramer calls Speaker Pelosi "Crazy Nancy" to her face, as if that's OK to say to the Speaker of the House".

Jim Cramer apologizes to Speaker Nancy Pelosi: "I made a very stupid comment".

"I think that my kids, when they get my inheritance, won't feel comfortable with gold, and will feel comfortable with crypto", Cramer told Morgan Creek Digital co-founder Anthony Pompliano on a podcast episode.

There was no immediate comment from CNBC.
