An Off-Script Start As Stuart Varney “Throws Me Under The Bus…”

Hello, 10-Minute Millionaires!

This week – as you know – I’ve been traveling through Ireland and England with my lovely and talented wife Cathie. After an evening of Irish pub music (and perhaps a Guinness or three), we’ve flown to a new island and are enjoying one of my favorite cities in the world – London.

London is the undisputed king of stand-up comedy and we’ll be spending tonight at one of its fabled stand-up venues. Tomorrow it’s off to London’s excellent zoo and dinner at the famous Simpson’s on the Strand.

The markets never seem to vacation at the same time as I do – which is why I haven’t completely unplugged…and a good thing too, since Stealth Profits Traders scored four triple-digit wins this week! Congratulations, and please do send me a note here and tell me your success story.

But since I am technically on holiday, this weekend I just wanted to send you a quick, funny behind-the-scenes story from my latest appearance on “Varney & Co.” (And link you to the episode, in case you missed it!)

On May 1, I went on Stuart’s show as usual to discuss where Apple’s revenue really comes from, among other things (it’s not all iPhones, in case you’re wondering…) And had a very atypical, but funny, off-script start.

During the countdown to live, Stuart Varney responded to a comment I made with a derogatory quip about a retailer we were going to cover later on the show. Stuart wasn’t sure if that “sound bite” was captured live and looked over at me to see if I would cover for him.

As the clip opens you hear me faintly say in the background saying, “Don’t blame me for that particular statement!” and Liz MacDonald, one of the co-hosts laughing loudly right before – Stuart goes right ahead and blames me for that statement. And I open the show saying “Stu’s throwing me under the bus”.

The most fun opening in a while, I think.

I’ve gotten the kind Video Team at Money Map to make me a slightly extended “Director’s Cut” of that appearance, where you can hear the hijinks at the beginning. You can watch it below — I hope it makes you smile too.

Have a wonderful weekend, and God bless you.

Back to our regularly scheduled program next week!
