When Babies Don’t Like Brian Williams

A sad but humorous YouTube video is up showing one American toddler breaking down at the mere sight of “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams.

President Obama first appears on screen, with no response from the baby. Next comes “Daily Rundown” host Chuck Todd, again eliciting no response.

It’s when Williams appears, the baby loses it. “He’s gone, it’s just a hurricane now,” the baby’s father says to soothe his crying son. “I’m sorry, we’ll turn him off,” the dad continues.

We’re giving Williams a pass here, as the father seems to goad the little boy into the anti-Williams horror: “Uh-oh, it’s Brian Williams,” he starts.  At 10 months old, wouldn’t you be scared?

Watch and decide for yourself.
