MSNBC’s newest host is picking up right where many of his predecessors left off.

Ronan Farrow, the alleged youngest son of the late Frank Sinatra, sent a tweet from his personal account that is raising eyebrows across cyberspace and raising questions about the twenty-six year old TV host’s maturity.

The tweet was allegedly an attempt at humor, based on a line from President Barack Obama’s State of the Union that described the physical challenges facing Army Sergeant First Class Cory Remsburg. “He still struggles from his left side,” the president said while describing the results of the grievous injuries suffered by SFC Remsburg, in Afghanistan during his tenth tour, in the most emotional portion of the speech. Farrow’s Tweet received nearly 200 re-tweets, over 300 favorites and elicited several responses chastising the neophyte television host.

Ronan was raised by his mother, actress Mia Farrow, and her then-lover and rumored child molester Woody Allen.

Ronan went to college at the age of 11 and eventually Yale Law School, alma mater of his future employer, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, before landing his current job as a daytime host for the Obama White House’s “official network,” MSNBC.
