VIDEO: Al Roker Diss Matt Lauer Throw Us Under The Bus — Al Roker, the “Today” show’s venerable weatherman, appeared to take a dig at co-host Matt Lauer yesterday morning on a live broadcast, evidently taking him to task over the removal of co-host Ann Curry in June. While interviewing members of America’s gold-medal-winning Olympics women’s rowing team on the plaza at Rockefeller Center, Lauer asked coxswain Mary Whipple, “The ladies threw you in the water after winning the gold?” a reference to a team tradition. Before she could answer, Lauer quipped, “The tradition here in New York is you throw her in the Hudson River.”
After some laughter all around and Lauer congratulating the women, Roker piped in, adding, “Which is different than our tradition, which is to throw one of us under the bus.” Following more laughter, Roker appended, “But that’s another story.” A surprised-seeming Lauer responded, “Mr. Roker,” followed by co-host Savannah Guthrie saying the same.
