As Twitchy readers know, NBC tweeted out a dumpster fire of stupid during the Golden Globes about the president using ‘video’ of Oprah. It took them a whole 14 hours to figure out it was a dumb thing to tweet, so they deleted and apologized:
Yesterday a tweet about the Golden Globes and Oprah Winfrey was sent by a third party agency for NBC Entertainment in real time during the broadcast. It is in reference to a joke made during the monologue and not meant to be a political statement. We have since removed the tweet.

It wasn’t meant to be political but it was about the president.
Whatever you say, NBC.
LOL – Russians hacked their toaster.

We made this exact face when we read NBC’s tweet.

So now you're back to being objective AF again. Cool.

The booze wore off.

Of course not. Who'd possibly think this was political? pic.twitter.com/j76VO0NrvP

NBC just quietly deleted their Oprah endorsement after 14 hours.
Not a good look for a news company. pic.twitter.com/CZ8nyBMANr

Not a good look at all.
But this is NBC we’re talking about.
