Rick Santelli Went Totally Nuts On CNBC And Walked Off Camera Live

If you put CNBC’s Rick Santelli and the network’s senior economics reporter Steve Liesman together on the same segment you know something entertaining is going to happen. Or at least we’ll get a Santelli rant.

This morning on “Squawk Box,” Santelli, who reports from the CBOT floor, went totally nuts on Liesman waving his papers around saying, “I can’t even talk about it anymore” and then walked off the set. The pair were arguing over two op-eds in the Wall Street Journal pertaining to the fiscal cliff and GDP.

“He’s gone,” host Joe Kernan quipped.
