Brit Hume of Fox News was tweeting about President Trump's height and weight compared to his own, ostensibly in defense of the President. One thing led to another and Hume ended up assuring everyone that he was not, in fact, fantasizing about the President's penis.

Matt Negrin of the Daily Show responded to Hume's tweet:
Hume deleted his response but there are plenty of screenshots floating around:

No one is sure what happened here. 2018 is getting off to a weird start.
