CNBC's Rick Santelli isn't just fighting with regular Americans. Now he's getting into scuffs with his fellow reporters.
In an interview Friday with MSNBC anchors Contessa Brewer and Carlos Watson, Santelli called Brewer "rude" when she asked whether a trader who sits near him was "suddenly famous."
"The guy that is sitting right beside you that you keep bringing in... Is he all of a sudden famous in his own right?"
"I just used him as an analogy, okay," replied Santelli.
"You keep bringing him in, the poor guy, is he good with this? Is he going to have his own YouTube channel?"
Finally, when the trader, whose name is "Eric" came to see about the commotion, Santelli said:
"They are being a little rude to you," Adding that Brewer wanted to know "if it somehow makes you feel better that your on here. That people are putting words in your mouth."
