To while away the time on a rainy Thursday afternoon, the comedian posted the following comment, unknowingly inciting a conflict the likes of which have never been seen before:

Ooooooh. A critical hit! (Aside: She knows about the period! We always forget the period! How is she THIS GOOD?)

Conan still seems pretty psyched at this point—it's not every day you have a Twitter beef with the first female Secretary of State, after all—but Madeleine's not letting him off this easily.

Can we just declare a KO right now? Because he's not getting up from that one.

BOOM. And with that, Conan slinks away.
