NBC’s Commander-In-Chief forum Wednesday made headlines not only for Matt Lauer’s performance and Donald Trump’s head-scratching remarks, but also for a tweet Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus sent out after the event, imploring Hillary Clinton to smile.

Priebus may want to look at the tape next time.
