    Cramer on CNBC: Cramer compares the Tesla Cybertruck to the spectacular failure of the Ford Edsel 60 years ago

    » “David, come on! I mean, you know when you go to buy a pickup — which I’m sure you’ve done many — what you want is a tailgate that’s good. And you want torque, and power. You want torque! Where’s the torque? AND WHERE’S THE TORQUE HERE?”


    » “I don’t want… I don’t want windows that don’t break. I want pickup trucks that I can use that are like, you know, that are STRONG and POWERFUL and have BIG ADS during the NFL commercials!”


    Yeah, Elon. Answer me that, huh? Where's the TORQUE?

    Yeah, totally! Because even Cramer knows EVs have no torque...

    Cramer doesn't know what torque is.

    Gonna take a moment tonight and rewatch Jon Stewart turn Cramer into a human torch after the “there’s nothing wrong with bear sterns” bit. Those were the times.

    You can make a lot of money by doing the exact opposite of what Cramer says.

    Oh, but it gets better… Since then he has completely turned around on Tesla. "I give up!" he said. "I'm throwing in the towel. The cars are just too damn good." Apparently his wife has been bugging him to get a Model X. His daughter was pressuring him too.

    He might still be an idiot, but at least he knows there are some battles not worth fighting.
