Oh, the flubs. Ya gotta love the flubs. Unless of course they’re coming from someone like Nancy Pelosi, who routinely forgets that Bush isn’t President of the United States anymore. Then it isn’t a flub anymore. It’s a sign of dementia.
Last night, everyone mocked MSNBC’s Brian Williams– who totally dodged enemy fire in Iraq (except not)– for calling President Trump President Obama instead.

*insert eyeroll here*
Brian Williams just said "we're cutting to President Obama" and my heart skipped a beat.
Guess he just has trouble putting the word before "Trump," too.

A river. Cry me one.
Looks like Brian Williams is still delivering fake news. Between him & Pelosi, they can’t seen to figure out who the President is……he states “President Obama”. #SaturdayMorning #FakeNews pic.twitter.com/OABKBUdhTZ

Wait, wait, wait, hold on just a second! Are you…are you–you're trying to tell me Brian Williams reported something untrue about a military action?

Brian Williams just said “we’re cutting to President Obama” instead of “President Trump,” and for a second, I imagined Obama was still the president, and I felt at peace with the world.

MSNBC's Brian Williams just called Trump, President Obama. Oh, how the buffoon"s in the MSM, miss their poster boy.

The only confusion was that he wished Obama had the balls that POTUS Trump does to take care of business and not pussy out by drawing a Red Line in the Sand and then forgetting MSNBC's Brian Williams confuses Trump with Obama, internet reacts https://t.co/1ba08K7YOG #FoxNews

Well…that’s certainly one way to say it.
I should be easier on Williams. Flubs happen. Besides, this is the man who single-handedly ended the Cuban Missile Crisis. Yeah– not many people know this, but he actually convinced Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev to dismantle and remove missiles from Cuba. True story.
Jokes aside, let’s do a throwback to that one time Williams said Cubans use donkey carts “because that’s exactly what they’d rather have for transportation.” Just for funsies!

Good times. You sure know how to pick ’em, MSNBC.
