Madeleine Albright Repeatedly Burns Conan O'Brien in Funny Twitter War
"Never get into a word war with a diplomat"
Conan O'Brien did not know what he was getting himself into when he cracked a joke about former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on Thursday.
I picked out my Halloween costume. I’m going as “Slutty Madeleine Albright.”— Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien) October 23, 2014
Albright responded within 30 minutes of the comedian's tweet with a witty retort.
.@ConanOBrien I'm considering going as hunky Conan O'Brien - but that might be too far fetched.— Madeleine Albright (@madeleine) October 23, 2014
Plus one Madam Secretary! The conversation didn't stop there. Then the late-night host expressed his excitement at Albright's response, and she kept on zinging.
.@ConanOBrien Never get into a word war with a diplomat. We talk even more than comedians.— Madeleine Albright (@madeleine) October 23, 2014
At least he knows when he's been defeated.
Damn - Whenever I go toe to toe with @Madeleine Albright, she always wins.— Conan O'Brien (@ConanOBrien) October 24, 2014
It's OK though, Conan. Madeleine Albright still hearts you.
She's just awesome like that.
