This Baby Is Terrified Of Brian Williams

Maybe he hates striped ties?

Some kids are scared of the boogeyman, but baby Jude is terrified of Brian Williams.

While the nightly news can be enough to make anyone upset, in a video posted to YouTube, a man films his ten-month old son, Jude, as he starts crying hysterically whenever Williams’ face appears on the TV screen. Jude won’t stop screaming until his dad turns off the television (and changes his diaper, probably).

Proving it’s not a fluke, the waterworks start back up as soon as Williams’ head reappears on the screen.

Bob Costas, we could understand, but Brian Williams? What a baby.
