Al Roker may be the weatherman of the Today show, but he is bringing down the HEAT on Ryan Lochte for lying about getting robbed in Rio!
On Friday’s broadcast, the NBC anchor went off on the Olympic swimmer after it was revealed his claims of being robbed at gunpoint with teammates Jimmy Feigen, Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger, at a gas station in Brazil were false!
After Lochte insisted he was telling the truth, surveillance footage from the gas station showed that the swimmers were not robbed, but had a confrontation with security guards after causing damage to the bathroom — clearly exposing the Olympian’s lie!
Not only did Roker slam the athlete for repeatedly lying about his story (nobody lies to Matt Lauer and gets away with it!), but for leaving his teammates detained in Brazil — where Bentz and Conger eventually admitted that their story was “fabricated” — while he jetted back to the US.
But his attitude on the Today show wasn’t nearly so forgiving!
Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to hear him go OFF on the fibbing gold medalist!
