JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon got irritated while talking about Washington politics during his company's earnings call Friday morning, per CNBC:

"It's almost embarrassing being an American citizen ... and listening to the stupid shit we have to deal with in this country," said Dimon. "Since the Great Recession, which is now 8 years old, we've been growing [at] 1.5 to 2 percent in spite of the political gridlock... [The] American business sector is powerful and strong. My sense is there would be much stronger growth if there were more intelligent decisions and less gridlock."
