Welp, This Was Probably Neil Barofsky's Last Time On CNBC

Former U.S. Treasury Inspector General overseeing TARP, Neil Barofsky, appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box earlier this morning, and it doesn’t look like he’ll be back on the show any time soon.

Shortly after leaving CNBC’s Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey studios, Barofsky tweeted that he was “pumped to be appearing with professional journalists” on Bloomberg later in the day before saying he had been Krugmanned.

The latter referring to Paul Krugman’s interview on the show earlier this year, which turned into a debate over what number would be an acceptable debt level.

Krugman later wrote a post on his New York Times blog after the appearance, blasting the show’s hosts for advocating “zombie ideas.”

Here’s Barofsky’s tweet:
