Much in the same way that everyone in Hollywood knew about Harvey Weinstein’s obsession with sexually assaulting the women he works with, it turns out that almost everyone in the media (and even some Hollywood people) knew about Matt Lauer’s behavior.
Back in 2008, Matt Lauer was “roasted” in a secret event. A roast is when a group of people make jokes about someone at that person’s expense, but it’s usually light-hearted and not meant to be mean-spirited. However, they can sometimes get out of hand and rather offensive. Such was the case with Matt Lauer’s 2008 roast.
According to Fox News: “The notorious event – now legendary in New York media circles – pushed the outer limits of sexist, racist, homophobic and obscene jokes – and left little doubt that Lauer’s colleagues knew NBC’s biggest star had a troubled marriage and a wandering eye.”
Now, I’ll quote some of the jokes, with censorship of course. But even with censorship, you’ll likely know what the foul word is, so I’ll give you a graphic content warning.

One of the speakers, Martha Stewart, joked: “I hear NBC executives call Matt the ‘**** of the Rock’”.
Another speaker, CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker (who was chairman of NBC Universal at the time and denied he knew about Lauer’s sexual misconduct) said: “It’s good to see Matt up here and not under my desk. I don’t want to say Matt is a germophobe, but he’s the only guy I know who uses Purell both before and after he *******”.
According to Fox News: “Then ‘Today’ co-host Meredith Vieira was especially crude, making jokes about Lauer and [Al] Roker partaking in **** sex during the Turin Olympics, with Roker as the receiving partner. Former ‘Today’ star Katie Couric went next, reading a… Top 10 list of facts about Lauer. Among the digs, ‘No. 10 – According to his wife, he’s not really an early riser, if you know what I mean.’”
But one of these “facts” about Lauer served to not just roast Lauer, but also embarrass someone else. That someone else was Ann Curry, who was Dateline NBC anchor at the time.
According to Couric’s list: “No. 2 – He loves to eat Curry”. And according to Fox News: “Curry (sitting in the audience) went pale and the crowd roared with laughter.”
And perhaps what’s one of the more disturbing jokes comes from “comic” Bob Saget, who according to Fox News: “took the stage to offer Lauer some marriage advice: ‘Do what I’m doing, Matt. Come into the Dark Side. My next wife hasn’t even been born yet.’”
Now, there’s more, but I’d like to not continue to pervert your minds with the filth these sick people think is normal and socially acceptable.
The point is that these people, despite the fact that they claim they had no idea about Lauer’s sexual misconduct, really did know about it. Beyond that, THEY CELEBRATED IT! They didn’t just know about it, THEY MADE AN ENTIRE EVENT REVOLVING AROUND IT!
And remember, this was back in 2008. They’ve known this at the very least since then, no doubt for longer. So they’ve had over a DECADE to blow the whistle on this sick man, but none of them did it. No one from his former co-hosts to studio executives to colleagues in the New York media did anything about it. And now they claim it’s egregious? That they are shocked he did these things? That what he did is unacceptable?
WHY WAS IT MORE THAN ACCEPTABLE BACK THEN?! WHY WASN’T HE HELD ACCOUNTABLE BACK THEN?!
And then there’s Noah Oppenheim’s statement to NBC staff. Oppenheim is Andy Lack’s deputy who told NBC staff, according to Fox News, that: “following his ‘review’ (about the Lauer investigative case run within NBC), anyone still working at NBC found to have known about Lauer’s behavior and not done anything would be punished ‘in the most severe way possible.’”
In other words, just about everyone in NBC is at risk of losing his or her job. Again, they’ve widely known about this for YEARS and not a single mention came of it, at least in serious terms.
They all knew what Lauer was doing to women and they laughed about it. It’s one thing to know about it and not say anything. That’s bad enough, especially if you know your work or life likely won’t be too affected. But to know about it and LAUGH ABOUT IT?! That’s a new low.
Not that I expected anything better of these Leftists. Sexual perversion courses through their veins. Sin thrives within their hearts.
They made fun of his perversion rather than call it out. They laughed not at Lauer’s expense but rather at his VICTIMS’ expense. They didn’t just make fun of his sexual escapades. THEY CHAMPIONED HIM FOR THEM!
But now that he’s been called out, they pretend they didn’t know about it? That’s like the Nazis not knowing about the concentration camps. Or the terrorists not knowing about 9/11. THEY TOOK PART IN IT! Not in the escapades themselves, but they certainly were more than ok with them.
Those may be extreme examples, but they still make sense. They lived with the knowledge and worked with the rapist. They hung out with him and befriended him. They were more than ok with what he did. They APPLAUD him for what he did.
If anyone belongs in a basket of deplorables, it’s the whole of the American Left.
“Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.”
