Deer injures Matt Lauer

Matt Lauer dog show

Matt Lauer missed the Today show this morning because of a deer. Over the weekend, Lauer flipped over his bike’s handlebars when a deer jumped in front of him. It’s believed Matt’s shoulder popped out. Co-host Meredith Vieira joked that she hired the deer. “Just to graze him.” Cue polite laughter.

In other news, bike is now a euphemism for car, deer is now a euphemism for hooker and flipped over bike’s handlebars is code for dumped in the river. It’s like those rich Hollywood types have their own language!

    What could Katie say. This is giving to much power to one person and I am sure now that one has come out there will be numerous more. The one that reported Matt was scared and tthat is why she waited along time and then got herself an attorney. Many know Mattt has been a cheater for years and his wife knew as well as they were going to get a divorce regarding his cheating. I think Matt has gotten away for years with harassment, sexual abuse, pinching on the ass is inappropriate in the work place, and much much more. However I am betting with the devastation people feel over the loss of Matt he harassed those who did not even realize they were harassed by being nice. Even his ex wife came to his defense. Of course his present wife stayed after knowing about affairs cuz Matt is gorgeous, rich, funny, talented, sexy and very powerful. However workplace harassment of any kind is inappropriate but it is going on at most places. Sexual harassment is happening but lonely women take it as a compliment. Kind of shocked about Kathie lee Gifford begging for matts forgiveness. First it is up to the victims to forgive in time. It is one thing to forgive but he does not deserve his job back cuz I am sure we will see a minimum of ten others come forward. Matt is a seriel cheater so nothing sexual would surprise me.

    What difference would it make if dry & boring ass MK got on the show and killef the ratings? She has her dry ass show… that’s still on the air. She has the “right” look, so where’s she going

  • Big Ern McCracken

    i say YAY!, she’s a “Jonah” sure to sink every show she’s on and when she’s done there send her to “The View”

  • Laurie Kaiser

    I already quit watching her portion of the Today Show. MK is so boring and dull. I just hope they do not put her in Matt’s old position…….I will watch CBS or ABC news for sure! NBC don’t do it!!!!

    Please don’t confuse sexual harassment with rape.

      I didn’t mention it specifically in the article, but Lauer was accused of sexual assault.

      “One complaint came from a former employee who said Mr. Lauer had summoned her to his office in 2001, locked the door and sexually assaulted her. She provided her account to The New York Times but declined to let her name be used.

      She told The Times that she passed out and had to be taken to a nurse. She said that she felt helpless because she didn’t want to lose her job, and that she didn’t report the encounter at the time because she felt ashamed.”

    Matt’s actions (if true) seems worse than Billy’s inappropriate words. I know that both are over the line. Seems arrogant to say he won’t, Mount a Billy Bush style campaign. Still feel above everyone else, Matt. You look a little Trumpish!
