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?

Reminds me of a Richard Pryor movie, when he gets fired he flips his index instead of his middle finger on accident and it was a joke through the move, what was that, moving? Anyway, freaking hilarious.

Since he supposedly slept with her, he could have made a much worse joke comparing her TO a vacuum. Ah, morning shows!

Because when someone is acting like an a$$, I go straight for my index finger.

While Matt WAS being insolent and did deserve the "I think you're #1 too!" sign, it looked to me by Savannah's demeanor that she was just goofing around a bit, not that there was any serious "F*** **U!" going on.

If there's any justice in the world, 5 years from now Matt will be anchoring the weekend shift of Good Day Topeka.

That was definitely her middle finger! I have dvr rewound it to the best frame and snapped a pic. You can clearly see her thumb is down, the knuckle of her index finger, followed by the birdy standing straight up. It’s funny, not really a big deal but she should own and apologize. Sometimes we have momentarily slips of being around just adults and not the world.
