Cramer choked up Friday as he bid farewell to his “great friend” and colleague Erin Burnett during their final "Stop Trading!" segment together. Burnett, who is leaving the network, also became emotional as the pair reminisced about their past 5 ½ years together on the set.
Burnett thanked the “Mad Money” host for being “the best, the greatest, the supporter, the proponent, the funny man, the crazy one, the mad one.” She called her segments with Cramer the highlight of her day. Cramer, in turn, told Burnett that he was retiring his “they know nothing” button in honor of one of their best moments together.
Cramer, who teared up several times during the exchange, said the “best three minutes” he has ever done on television was a segment he didwith Burnett out of Petra, Jordan.
“Your foreign correspondent work is some of the best I’ve ever seen," he told Burnett, "You are a consummate professional."
With that, Burnett thanked her colleagues, friends and the viewers for “the best 5 ½ years of my life so far” and signed off CNBC for the last time.
