MSNBC anchor Brian Williams threw shade at House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and it was brutal.

Williams announced that he had exclusive video of McCarthy’s trip to Florida to curry favor from Donald Trump despite the former president’s role in stoking an insurrectionist attack on the U.S. Capitol. And then the producers hit play.

The short clip from the 1996 movie Jerry McGuire starring Tom Cruise and Renée Zellweger took the audience – and panelists – by surprise, but quickly set Twitter on fire.

Williams apology with a deadpan delivery was the cherry on top for most.
