Tom Brokaw Takes Ambien, Gets Wacky On Live TV
Looks like Tom Brokaw wasn’t alone when he went on MSNBC program ‘Morning Joe’ — he brought along his good friend the Ambien Walrus!! Brokaw accidentally took the wrong medication and gave himself half an Ambien before going on camera this morning.
The good news is that we got a great recounting of former Secretary of the Treasury Robert Rubin falling into a swimming pool out of it. The other good news is that Brokaw didn’t pee on anything or write on any of the walls. The other good news is that he was taken to the hospital for feeling “light-headed,” i.e., high on Ambien, and it turns out he’s fine.
Stories about old people messing up their medications almost never turn out to be so full of good news. Well done, Mr. Brokaw — it seems you win again.
