Lee Cooperman moved by extraordinary
Wall Street tributes read on CNBC

Scott Wapner: "I also reached out to some of, uh, the heavyweights if you will of- of this business, uh, to get sort of their thoughts on, on what you've meant to the industry ... Mario Gabelli, who ... stuck with you through thick and thin, writes to me, 'After Lee started his firm in the early '90s, he would grill me on stocks that he thought I had a core competency in. It was as though I was his younger teammate. He still does that.' Uh, David Tepper, uh, wrote to me, 'I knew Lee from when he headed an investment committee at Goldman Sachs I was on, and I always considered him one of the all-time great stock-pickers.' David Einhorn says, uh, 'Lee has boundless energy, is a fantastic storyteller with a long memory and has an anecdote for every situation. But even more he has a heart of golden generosity. He is a terrific example for everyone in my generation.' Uh, Lee when- when you hear that, I'm wondering what you think"
Lee: "Well, it brings tears to my eyes. … Shouldn't do that to me. Not in a public arena"
Trump's trade: "I think it's very dangerous, I think he's on the wrong track, and I hope he backs off"
SEC: "One of my cause celebre maybe in my next life will be to get a losing-party-pays legal system. Believe me, if losing party pays, I would've gone to trial"

Graduation gift: Gorgeous Seema Mody speaks to alma mater

"When I sat in your seat many years ago, I knew exactly what I was going to be — a star doctor, perhaps a dermatologist.

I had to let go of my dream of practicing medicine ... After a couple of stops, I found my true calling in journalism"
Pals: "Friendships matter. Having the right friendships matter even more"
Bitcoin reporter: "I did not let my limited knowledge of a certain subject stop me from saying yes to a certain opportunity"
Tributes: "Mrs. Johnson taught me how to write and inspired me to study the English language through teaching of Shakespeare ... Mr. Johnson in the math department still doesn't have very much hair ... He is amazing — relentless, but in a good way ... Mr. Braun taught me how to embrace different religions and see life through different cultural lenses. Plus he taught me how to laugh at corny jokes — that's very important"

Larry Kudlow, You’re hired

"A thought that I have is the United States could lead a coalition of large trading partners and allies against China, or to let China know that they're breaking the rules left and right. That's the way I'd like to see. You call it a sort of a trade coalition of the willing"
Hoffman statement: "Larry's been part of the fabric of CNBC since our founding in 1989. We thank him for his many contributions and wish him well."
Emotional appreciation: "I talked to Mark today; it's extremely kind. Um, the last 25 years of my life has been tied up with CNBC, which changed my life, changed my profession, um, and has been a family to me, and however this thing works out, it will be God's will, uh, if there's an opportunity when my service is complete, I hope very much to come back and help CNBC. It is my family and it has changed my life. CNBC also years back gave me a 2nd chance after my crash and burn ... I love this place"
New York Times: "Mr. Kudlow’s selection startled some in the West Wing, who were unaware it was happening ... latest move by Mr. Trump to surround himself with loyalists ... Stock markets, which have been rattled by the White House tariffs, did not react positively to news of Mr. Kudlow's appointment on Wednesday. ... Mr. Kudlow criticized the president after the emergence of the 'Access Hollywood' tape in October 2016. He later re-endorsed him, but Mr. Trump, who nurses grudges, was angry for some time, according to people close to him"
Bloomberg: "He cited a source — who he hinted was Trump — telling him that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau 'has been on the phone with the president' making concessions on NAFTA negotiations 'hand over fist.' ... Earlier this month, he wrote a column for CNBC describing the president's tariffs as 'a regressive tax on low-income families.' ... In December 2007, he was arguing there was no recession and that the 'Bush boom continues' ... warned in 2010 that former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen would usher in a new era of higher inflation"
Politico: "Trump offered the job to Kudlow over the phone Tuesday night while Kudlow was at dinner at Cipriani restaurant in Manhattan ... During the call, Trump said he was seeing Kudlow's photo on television and told him: 'You're looking handsome, Larry.' ... Kudlow's television presence is part of the reason Trump wanted him for the job, according to a senior White House official. Trump regularly complains that he does not have enough talented people making the case for his policies on television."
Wall Street Journal: "Grew up in a Republican family in northern New Jersey's upwardly mobile suburbs, became a leader of the antiwar movement during the Vietnam War"
Jerry Bowyer, 2013: "Larry's fundamental commitment was to optimism, not to free market capitalism ... producers calling and saying 'Larry's looking for the optimism case.' Larry putting formerly optimistic guests 'in the penalty box' for not providing it. Larry dropping good thinkers with good minds when they turned pessimistic."
Associated Press: "He converted from Judaism to Catholicism, according to a 2000 interview with the religious magazine Crisis. After graduating as a history major from the University of Rochester in 1969, he worked on Democratic campaigns in New York. But he evolved into a committed Republican ... Customarily attired in narrow-lapelled suits, Kudlow has relied on the same Savile Row-trained, New York-based tailor, Leonard Logsdail, for 26 years. Logsdail said Kudlow still wears some of the first suits he made for him. 'He does take care of them,' the tailor said."

Dan DiMicco tells Sully, ‘You’re dead wrong’

Sully: "Dan, you know better than anybody. China is not that big of an importer of steel to the United States"
Dan: "That's where you're dead wrong"
Sully: "They're 11th"
Dan: "Is this Brian?"
Sully: "Yes it is"
Dan: "Brian, you're dead wrong on that"
Sully: "I'm not just wrong- how am I dead wrong. They're 11th"
Dan: "Those are the kind of numbers people throw out when they're trying to make a distorted point because they don't want to see what's going on for the American people. OK, here's the real deal. China's overcapacity is huge ... Just because we've won some trade cases against China in the short term that has cut back on their direct shipments of steel, doesn't mean that the steel that they are making isn't going into other countries and forcing them to sh- to move their products that they were selling in other countries in the world (sic last 3 words redundant) now into the United States"
Sully: "Dan my numbers- I just wanna be clear for the audience. I mean, my numbers are from the U.S. government"
Dan: "But they don't include the trans-shipping, they don't include the impact ..."

But Carolin show-stopping in magenta


Sully: "Friendly with many of us … Anthony obviously giving perhaps an unfortunate interview to the New Yorker magazine's Ryan Lizza in which he, uh, used some choice language … maybe the most short-lived tenure of any communications director in the White House"
Melissa: "Remember that initial White House press briefing in which he took the lectern and basically wowed a lot of people, they really thought that, uh, Scaramucci had done an excellent job, that initial day, uh, and then it seemed to be sort of a descent from there"
Tyler: "This sounds like, Mr. Scaramucci, meet General Kelly. Mr. General Kelly, meet Mr. Scaramucci. And that does sounds like it did not go well"
Kayla: "You can bet that this is going to be toward the top of the list of the questions that (Sarah Huckabee Sanders) will be receiving … His appointment in the beginning ruffled feathers … at first the president really liked it, but then when Anthony Scaramucci became the story … reports in Page 6 in the New York Post about his family drama"
John Harwood: "The likeliest scenario, that, uh this is something that John Kelly, uh, who means to impose discipline on the White House staff, uh, insisted upon … Obviously in any normal White House, he would've been fired as soon as that interview took place"
Kayla: Kelly "is definitely not someone that if you are in the White House you want to be messing with"
Tony Fratto: "You can't parachute into those jobs any more than I can parachute into being a hedge fund manager"
Melissa: "It's simply bad judgment isn't it"
Pat Buchanan: Kelly "basically was repelled by what Scaramucci said and the way he said it … and he exercised immediate and swift and decisive command … I think it's an extremely healthy sign of the potential of the general ... his first step was dramatic and impressive and correct"
Sully: "President Obama went through 4 chiefs of staff in 4 years … and that was a record by the way"
John: "This is, um, a disorderly White House from the top, and that's really the problem"
Sully: "Robert Costa tweeting right now saying uh that uh apparently according to his sources the president did not like the vulgarity in the New Yorker article … He does not drink, he does not smoke, he does not necessarily curse … "

I was so proud of the way CNBC not only reported the story, but the way they treated the seriousness of those events"
Tears: "Do I see a little moisture in your eyes, Tyler?"


Michelle Caruso-Cabrera:
‘Paul Tudor Jones said out loud what we all know to be anecdotally true,’ Karen Finerman is ‘exception that proves the rule’

Karen Finerman: "Well my first response was I just could not believe he said it. And so I, I wanted to make sure that I had it right, and I went and I looked at the video, and of course you just showed it, so yes, he said it, and, uh, I, I, I know, I know that he's apologized, that he didn't mean to offend anyone, and I believe he was saying it, he was- an attempt to be very candid, I can't believe also that he didn't think that will- would never get out, but it's sort of- I mean on so many levels, it makes me wonder, 1, what if you don't nurse, do you not then have that- are you, do you keep your judgment then if you don't nurse. That's sort of something that popped into my head"
Amanda Drury: "And also, is he also saying that global macro traders that are guys are not great dads because they're always off 24/7 on the phone trading stuff"
Karen Finerman: "Right, I just- I don't really accept that premise either. If you are a mother, I really sort of do wonder, how long this would knock you off your game for. And, it, I don't know, on so many levels, I know so many women, far more successful than I, who have done an extraordinary job of raising kids, and also, uh, you know, trading, trading their books"
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "I think Paul Tudor Jones said out loud what we all know to be anecdotally true. That women, it's not that they don't have the ability, it's just, if they have a child, priorities tend to change. It takes up a lot of time. A child is a huge, huge commitment. And so-"
Amanda Drury: "And not necessarily a bad thing"
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "It's not necessarily a bad thing, he's not saying that, that they can't do it, it's just, it gets a lot tougher. Priorities often change. And I think Karen, you are awesome, but you are the exception I think that proves the rule. Let's face it: How many other women are on 'Fast Money.' I mean when you look at the breakdown of people- when you look at the breakdown of people who are on CNBC. It's a guys-and-ties network. I mean let's not kid anybody!"
Karen Finerman: "Yes I hear you-"
Brian Sullivan ridiculously removes tie: "Here we go, no more guys in ties"
Karen Finerman: "Let me just add 1 thing"
Brian Sullivan: "I don't wanna get accused of dodging the conversation. All right, I know hedge fund managers that have what they call the large-house indicator. Right. What they say is, if they have an investment manager, or a fellow hedge fund manager, whatever, that starts to build a new mansion, they will often times use that- or CEO of a company, they'll use that as a negative and either get out of it or trim, because building a home is a year-long process, takes a lot of energy, you're not focused on what you're doing. So I don't think just has to be about gender. If you've got any big undertaking you take on, that reduces your focus. I'm not defending what he said-"
Michelle Caruso-Cabrera: "Except this happens to be about having babies for women, which is just a huge thing in, in most women's life"
Brian Sullivan: "If I was a hedge fund manager and a CEO of a company bought a 200-foot yacht, I would sell the shares of that company probably short that next day"
Karen Finerman: "I mean also there's the private plane indicator, you get the private plane, you're not hungry anymore, then you don't care. I, I don't really buy that, I think it also makes the case that women don't have the judgment to know, after they've had a baby, whether or not they are still interested in being in the game. Now that may be his experience, and I believe him when he says that's what he's found to be true, and he gave a couple examples of a, you know, two women from Maryland the '70s, he probably has more recent examples than that, but is he just open to the possibility, the possibility, that maybe it's not true, that there will never be just as many women investors as men, never, period, end of story. Isn't it possible?"
Amanda Drury: "And the other thing is Karen, and you've touched on this, I mean, we would've said in the past, it would've been decades, maybe not even so long ago, we would've said that we can't have a good female doctor, she can't possibly be on call because she's got to be at home feeding her child at night. Right?"
Karen Finerman: "And now look. Now look, there are just as many women, or maybe it's about the same number of women graduating from medical school as men and you're right, years and years ago, that was thought as an impossibility"
