CNBC's Mark Haines Mocks Automakers: "Please Give Us Money, We Screwed It Up"

CNBC Squawk On The Street anchor Mark Haines has spent a lot of time in the last week berating American automakers as they have been lobbying for a $25 billion bailout from Congress. As a vote likely nears, Haines has had more guests on his show to talk about the automakers and it seems to be making him more irritable.

While watching for what seems like an inevitable meltdown fight with auto reporter Phil LeBeau, we caught this moment of Haines employing a little voice to mock the automakers.


We're just minutes away from the big three on Capitol Hill. Today they're in the House wearing out their knees, making the case for a bailout: "Please give us money, we screwed it up really royally."

Co-anchor Erin Burnett can be heard being frustrated with Haines at the end of the clip.
