Stewart continues assault on Cramer, includes Scarborough
Jon Stewart expanded his assault on Jim Cramer to include Joe Scarborough. In defending Cramer, Scarborough attempted to criticize Stewart: “Politicians stumbles over himself. They pick it up. They edit it. He runs the clip. Then he makes a funny face and the audience has a Pavlovian response.”
“What do I do now? He nailed me,” mocked Stewart. “Here’s what I didn’t know. If I had picked on CNBC, Cramer would take it personally and get the whole NBC family involved. Don’t mess with the peacocks.”
Stewart then went a “rehabilitation tour” using Viacom shows. Viacom owns the family of networks that includes Comedy Central. While visiting Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer, Dora used the spanish term for jackass to describe Cramer and Scarborough. “Why is everyone being such a pandejo?” ask Dora. “Hey, kids, can you say jackass in Spanish?”
“Hooray for the pandejos,” exclaimed Stewart.
