WUT: Watch MSNBC's Brian Williams Call President Obama 'President Reagan' for no Apparent Reason (VIDEO)

So … this was pretty weird.

I gotta wonder what he was thinking about right then. Pining for a better President? (Who isn’t?) Or maybe he was right in the middle of crafting a classic Williams Tall Tale and it just sort of slipped out. (Spoiler Alert!)

Or maybe he’s just a crazy person? (My favorite theory.) I’ll tell you this, Brian WilliaMs and I are best friends who regularly run across hazy fields toward each other in slow motion, and even I have no idea what he was really thinking about right then. (Totally true story.)

In any case, an odd error in an odd career.
