File this under “S” for “Slow news day.” Rick Santelli and Gallagher just spent a few moments smashing watermelons on CNBC.
Apparently, the point of this clip is to vent frustration over the growing deficit. That is why Gallagher, a comedian famous for smashing watermelons during his act, was at the CME with Rick Santelli making a mess. Cathartic.

There isn’t really anything else to say about it. You have to just see it.
