Yes, That's Brian Williams Making A Sex Joke On The News

"NBC Nightly News" viewers may have gotten a bit of a shock (and a chuckle) from Brian Williams on Thursday night.

The NBC News anchor started what seemed like any other news segment — about the increase in the number of births in D.C. nine months after the government shutdown — before throwing the audience this curveball:

How long until someone on television points out that during the shutdown the folks in Washington are apparently doing at home what Washington has been accused of doing to the American people? We’re guessing someone will say that on television before long.

Williams' comic stylings are, of course, well-known. Watch his sex joke in the clip above.
