Toward the end of the interview, Kudlow's former TV co-host Jim Cramer asked if the administration would consider his plan to issue coronavirus "war bonds", a scheme the CNBC host has been pushing every chance he gets for weeks.
But for the first time, on Monday, Kudlow seemed to indicate that Cramer's idea was being taken semi-seriously by the White House. Kudlow responded that he "liked the idea" and promised Cramer that he would raise it with President Trump, offering a glimpse behind the curtain to an audience that got to see a little on-air lobbying.
"This is a time, it seems to me, to sell bonds in order to raise money for the war effort, in this the pandemic effort," Kudlow said. "I'm all for it."
