cramer on Colbert Report

LOL...they just made an ass out of Cramer on the Colbert Report.

Probably aired a few days ago for the 1st time.

Anyone catch this?

Missed it. However, Cramer is no slouch, he's totally capable of making an ass out of himself on his own without outside help!

JohnDoe: Can you give some examples of how Colbert made an ass of Cramer? I just saw maybe 2 minutes of it. Cramer, at the beginning seemed pretty low key for him...well, he wasn't screaming, anyway. Turned it off. Now I wish I had watched it.
Please expound.

Hulu just informed me that it can only stream video inside the United States. This must be to prevent foreign terrorists (or is that tourists? or are they the same thing?) from gaining crucial information vital to the security of the United States.

I didn't see anything in there that "made an ass" out of Cramer.

I agree with Ziggy. The video was mildly humorous, but in no way made Cramer look bad. He dealt with Colbert's loonyness pretty well. This is probably the nicest comment I've ever made about him.

Oh yeah..I did see this on Colbert. Laughed my head off. I got the humor in it, but I love Colbert's style, anyway. Dry humor is the best.

I just watched. I don't get the OP's take on it either. I've only seen Cramer rarely, that was the calmest, sanest I've seen him. He seemed to do OK. I get the kittens and all the "let's be positive" angle, but didn't really think it was all that funny, just a little funny.

When did Cramer look bad? I guess I missed it?

OP must have changed his/her mind. Hasn't been back since throwing the ball over the transom and running.

Can't vouch for the video editing, but I saw O'Reilly do a piece on the on-going "fight" between these two "boys". Cramer would say "I never said blah, blah, blah" and O'reilly would show Cramer saying "blah, blah, blah" more or less word for word as pointed out by Colbert. Don't have a dog in this hunt, but it was kinda funny to watch.

As I recall the "blah, blah, blah" was about Bear Stearns stock recommendations.

Yep, kinda looking like a very slightly more stealthy version of some of the old Soapbox hit and run posters.

I didn't watch it as I refuse to watch Cramer. But the below link had the same view as the OP.

"After a video introduction that mocked the anticipation of the interview, Stewart began hammering Cramer on his poorly timed financial advice. It only got worse for poor Jim, who looked like a deer in headlights. Stewart repeatedly put Cramer on the spot with clips of the "Mad Money" host in a 2006 interview."

OP referred to Colbert, not Stewart.

Esp considering that IMO, Cramer makes an a$$ of himself w/o any extra help, Colbert should have been able to stomp him, and I didn't see that at all. Stewart did a better job, but it's like shooting fish in a barrel. IMO, if you watch Cramer for 10 minutes and don't see that he's just a crazy talking head, I guess you need to get your "news" from the Daily Show.

I'm actually a fan of both guys, but I watch them both for entertainment value only. Just personally, I think Cramer is fun to watch and he brings up interesting news about new business sectors / industry trends. But I don't look to the guy for investing advice.
