Sip that tea, girl!

On Thursday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Meredith Vieira got pretty candid about how she REALLY feels about GOP nominee Donald Trump. When asked by Andy Cohen to address the controversy surrounding the presidential hopeful’s leaked lewd comments and Billy Bush‘s suspension from TODAY for his involvement in the scandal, the longtime journalist had nothing but shade to throw.

As you surely know, Miz Vieira has been associated with the TODAY show for many years — so we can only imagine this drama is hitting pretty close to home. Nonetheless, the 62-year-old focused her energies on DRAGGING the Trumpster as she told Cohen:

“I’m sorry to say that it wasn’t surprising to me ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ and I know that sounds awful ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ but we’ve seen a consistent pattern with Donald Trump, that attitude toward so many kinds of people. It started the day he announced, he called Mexicans rapists, so I should be shocked and it is shocking, but I wasn’t surprised.”

Snap, snap! Thankfully for Bush, Meredith didn’t touch on his controversy directly as she simply continued to slam Donald.

She added:

“To paraphrase a columnist who talked about him and this piggish behavior, ├óΓé¼╦£That’s an insult to pigs because pigs are awesome.'”

HIGHlarious! Nonetheless, that was the only bit of drama the game show host weighed in on. Be sure to ch-ch-check out what else Meredith had to say during her WWHL visit (below)!
