Matt Lauer Is A Hypocritical Ass


So, Matt Lauer sat with Britney Spears, on ‘Today’, bold-facedly questioning her parenting skills, and why she would ever drive a car with her child in her lap. And then, this same self-righteous imbecile gets caught –on camera, riding in the back of an SUV with his kid in his lap. Nice one, chief. From People:

“He gave Britney Spears a hard time for driving with her son in her lap — but Matt Lauer did something similar this weekend in New York, though he wasn’t breaking the law.

TMZ cameras caught Lauer with wife Annette and son Thijs outside the Marc Jacobs store in SoHo on Saturday, with Lauer holding his son on his lap as his SUV took off. No car seat in sight.

Back in June of 2006, Lauer quizzed Britney in that infamous “Today” sit-down, and asked her why should would ever drive with her son in her lap — pointing out how much negative press she got from the incident.

For the record, unlike Brit, Lauer was in the backseat with his child and not behind the wheel. According to New York’s Taxi & Limousine Commission, the child does not have to have a car seat because hired cars are exempt.”

However –make no mistake, ladies and gentlemen, the only thing that saved his ass, is that it was a “hired” vehicle. If it had been one of his own cars, or a privately owned vehicle, his ass would have been grass. And as most of you know, despite how ridiculous the intense the scrutiny of such a trivial incident is, –the potential harm a child can come to out of a car seat, whether in the front seat or the back, is the same; in the sense that chances for fatality in an accident are fairly high. Concluding in that, if Matt was sooo hung up about the safety of Britney‘s kids, why the hell isn’t he being more careful with his own?

I agree! I think Matt Lauer is full of himself. I won’t even watch the Today Show anymore because he isn’t credible. I turned to Good Morning America because their show doesn’t base on Matt’s theory – THE SKY IS FALLING every single frickin day!

I think Matt Lauer is an arrogant SOB who makes comments that are sometimes totally out of line and judgemental. Why does he think it’s okay to interject his opinion? He is mean spirited and full of himself. I don’t watch the Today Show because I dislike him so much. The only time I see him is when I watch a clip of something I may be interested in on MSN and unfortunately he may be in one of those clips. He’s a jerk and I hope that someday he experiences the mean spiritedness of another show’s host. Maybe then he will understand how it feels.

According to Matt Lauer, it’s NOT okay for Jerry Jones to build a new stadium, but it IS okay for him (Matt Lauer the schmuck) to get a $9 million dollar a year raise for getting dressed up, reading from a teleprompter and doing canned interviews. Way to go, Matt!
