Matt Lauer Got a ‘Hatred’ Tattoo, Completing His Transformation From TV Host to Middle-Aged Douche

Matt Lauer just completely fell off the face of the Earth after he was accused of having a rape button in his office he allegedly used to trap women. Yeah, no one knew what was going on even though the button lit up a big red sign that said “Quiet, Rape in Progress” on the other side of the door.

Lauer crawled out from the rock he’s been hiding under this week to cast aspersions on Ronan Farrow, the report who brought the allegations against both Lauer and Harvey Weinstein to light, reportedly because Farrow is working on a story about a powerful politician so outlets were looking for any hit piece on him they could find.

In light of Lauer’s return to the outside world, E! reported that he’s every bit the douchebag you always thought he was and he’s got the tattoo to prove it.

In pictures obtained by E! News, Matt drove around town while wearing a baseball cap, sunglasses and a white button-down that showcased his new tattoo. The ink read, “Hatred corrodes the container it’s carried in.”

That’s 100% the sort of thing you say to a college freshman to make her think you’re deep. Believe me, I know.

He got the line from a eulogy delivered at President George Bush’s funeral.

“You would have wanted [Bush] on your side. He never hated anyone. He knew what his mother and my mother always knew: Hatred corrodes the container it’s carried in,” Senator Alan [Simpson] shared during his speech. “The most decent and honorable man I ever met was my friend George Bush.

Really, he could have gotten a cooler tattoo, like “For Sale. Baby Shoes. Never Worn.” or something more applicable to his life a politician said like “C’mon man, I heard you liked me.”
