Savannah Guthrie

FLIPS OFF Matt Lauer

Your Vacuum Joke Sucks!

Matt Lauer definitely got the finger from co-host Savannah Guthrie this morning ... live on 'Today' ... only question is -- which finger?

During a segment on vacuum cleaners ... Matt cracked, "By the way this is the first time Savannah has ever used a vacuum."

Savannah apparently thought she was off camera when she fired off a one-finger salute in Matt's direction!

But wait ...

Savannah immediately hit her Twitter page to claim it was NOT the bird, and just her index finger.


She might have a point, but still -- considering all the crap Matt's been catching lately -- Savannah's intent is there, no?

Savannah to Matt

  • Middle finger
  • Index finger

Matt Lauer Sucks    

Matt Lauer is a jerk!! He should have got canned instead of Ann Curry. The Today Show sucks now all because of Matt. Dump him ASAP and bring back Ann!

Savannah is a smart lady. This shows how Matt can bring out the worst in people. Even Al is not the same. The Today Show is a dysfunctional crew. Matt needs to go now! He does not do the news well, he has no class, he is dull and boring. I will not watch the Today Show.

Lauer is a schmuck, tossed aside after a briss. His massive ego has damaged the show. He can't get replaced fast enough.

Savannah Guthrie flipped Matt Lauer off using her middle finger. Even if she was using her index finger, it's still the gesture. It was classless and not worthy of a lady. However, Matt Lauer deserved it. Here, yet again, is another instance where Lauer was an arrogant prick [vacuum segment] The fact that he would make jokes that belittled his co-host, even if he CLAIMS they were in jest, just is not funny. It is no wonder the Today show is tanking. Fire Savannah Guthrie for flipping Lauer off, and for God's sake fire Matt Lauer for, well, being Matt Lauer.

that was the index finger; and everyone knows that the backwards index finger is the international sign for a prostate check. She wants to give him a buddy check. You gotta respect that.
