Carson Daly hosted the NBC New Year’s Eve special tonight. He donned an NYPD hat to show support for the men and women in blue who’ve suffered terrible losses this holiday season — and who remain under siege. While a few viewers on Twitter expressed their appreciation…

“Privlaged!” Yikes. Sounds like a medical procedure.

Ringin’ in the new year with the same ol’ grievance-mongering. Pass the cham-pain.
