Tom Brokaw REALLY screwed up during an interview with Chuck Todd.
There is just no other way to put it.
Video: @TomBrokaw warns opposition to more Hispanics in U.S. fueled by intolerant Republicans. “I hear, when I push people a little harder, ‘I don’t know whether I want brown grand babies.’” #MTP pic.twitter.com/sNJ8lxRcm3

Claiming that he has heard from ‘some Republicans’ that they don’t like having brown grandbabies, that Hispanics will ‘all be Democrats’, and should ‘work harder at assimilation’ plus that tidbit about them learning English went over like a lead balloon.
Did we mention he screwed up? And speaking of screwing up, look at this tweet (which we honestly can’t believe is still up) …

Why does the TV remote keep posting things online?!
Worst haiku ever.

There is no greater apology on earth than "my tweet portal is whack."
It doesn't matter what it's in response to.

It surely makes Tom seem super sincere in his apology.
i’ll have what he’s having pic.twitter.com/i5EqDhMQAP

These three tweets together actually made this editor LOL. Then again, it could be a lack of coffee but still.
Clones have trouble tweeting. ??♂️

Eventually, Twitter breaks us all.
On that note, Happy Monday!
