Senior White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer is probably wishing he proofread his tweets more carefully.

Pfeiffer on Tuesday afternoon accidentally tweeted the N-word when discussing political polarization. He meant to type “bigger.”

A clearly embarrassed Pfeiffer immediately tweeted out the following apology:

Obviously a horrendous typo in my previous tweet. My apologies
