Nancy, are you insane? What Jim Cramer’s CNBC Insult To Nancy Pelosi Really Means
Crazy nancy : Jim Cramer, a television personality, referred to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as “Crazy Nancy” during a live interview on CNBC on Tuesday.
Directly in front of her.
Cramer quickly realised his error and apologised, stating he “would never use that language” because he “respects the office.” “But you just did,” Pelosi answered without missing a beat.
President Trump and his supporters frequently refer to California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi as “crazy Nancy,” despite the fact that she is the most powerful political official in the country as Speaker of the House.
Cramer’s use of such a phrase in front of the Speaker is both disrespectful and offensive…
Pelosi’s strong leadership of the Democratic caucus, as well as her no-holds-barred style to dealings with President Trump and her Republican counterparts, has long irritated Republicans.
She has been a vocal opponent of the President’s leadership and has made headlines for her sometimes not-so-subtle jabs at him.
While politicians have traditionally used slurs to describe elected officials, and political pundits aren’t shy about using pejorative terminology to describe them, it’s rare to see a journalist go so far as Cramer did on Tuesday morning.
Later in the day, Cramer attempted to clarify the remark, claiming that it had been taken out of context.
Cramer tweeted, “It was about how horrifying it is that the president nicknames Speaker Pelosi Crazy Nancy.”
CNBC has yet to publish a statement in response to Cramer’s remark.
The other issue raised by the Cramer remark is the inherent misogyny of the moniker “Crazy Nancy.”
The depiction of Pelosi as mad is steeped in anti-woman tropes and corresponds with insults levelled at powerful female political leaders by Trump and others.
In an August interview with Fox Business, for example, President Trump referred to California Senator and Democratic Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris as a “crazy lady” in reference to female leaders in Congress.
He dubbed Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) a “bad student” who “yaps” and Pelosi “stone-cold nuts” in the same interview.
Trump frequently refers to women as “nasty” and argues that they “aren’t very kind.”
Pelosi has established a reputation as one of the most accomplished and effective legislators of her time, despite the relentless name-calling and sexist insults.
It’s not surprising, given that studies reveal women are far more capable leaders and managers than men in three important areas: collaboration, inclusion, and empathy.
Women leaders, according to studies, take a more collaborative approach to leadership and have a greater level of emotional intelligence, which is a vital component of successful collaborations.
According to research, women surpass males in skills that promote inclusive and varied environments.
In terms of empathy, recent UCLA brain study suggests that women leaders have a stronger ability for empathy than men.
As a result, they may not only be able to communicate more profoundly with their followers, but they may also share a terrible feeling of the need to find solutions.
Jim Cramer may have created his own problem by attacking the Speaker of the House on his television show, and one for which Nancy Pelosi may not have much empathy in finding a solution.
But one thing is certain: she has demonstrated the ability to enrage her opponents to the point where they lose their sense of decency and respect….
On Tuesday, Jim Cramer did the same thing.
