This is what happens when you have fat fingers and type too fast: According to the New York Daily News, an senior aide to the President (who may or may not still have a job when you read this) accidentally tweeted the n-word. He apparently meant to type the word ‘bigger,’ but that stupid ‘n’ key got in the way. In a conversation with a New York Times journalist about the government shutdown, Dan Pfeiffer wrote, “also a much n—-r factor on the right. Oops!

It gets worse. Pfeiffer advises the President on communications strategy. And he tweeted it from the official White House account. The tweet was obviously quickly deleted, but as you can imagine, tons of people saw it anyway. And those tons of people retweeted it, which is why we all know Dan’s fingers are fat. He tweeted later, “Obviously a horrendous typo in my previous tweet. My apologies.”

Anyone else missing the days when you actually had time to proffreed stuf befour it hits the internet?
