This is a hoot. Stewart demolishes the groupies at CNBC who idolize billionaires and who have given us a steady stream of bogus cheerleading “news” as the economy cratered, along with faux populism and pretending to stand for the common people.
Cramer is getting hysterical about it, too. Y’know, he whined that Obama wasn’t helping the stock market. That’s not his job, Jim. Fixing the economy is. Dubya wouldn’t slap down something like that, Obama does. Deal with it. Yes, I’ve gotten good stock tips from Cramer, but he’s made plenty of stupid calls too, as Stewart so aptly points out.
The monied class, it appears, is having temper tantrums as they realize they no longer have someone in the White House who will do whatever they ask.
