Madeleine Albright just burned Conan O’Brien so hard on Twitter

If you’re going to dash off a Halloween joke at the expense of a former U.S. Secretary of State, better make it Colin Powell—because Madeleine Albright goes for the jugular.

Conan O’Brien just found this out the hard way, and we couldn’t be happier. A professional talk show host really ought to have better material than your average #tcot, no?

As of this writing, O’Brien was reportedly weeping in a bathroom stall, wondering when he’d lost it.

Update 6:20pm ET, Oct. 23: He’s recovered.
