Another morning, another sexual misconduct scandal to dissect.
As we reported, Matt Lauer was fired from NBC on Tuesday night for “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace,” but not everyone in daytime TV shared the same shock and heartbreak as Savannah Guthrie.
In fact, the ladies of The View seemed particularly unfazed by Lauer’s ousting when discussing the news on Wednesday’s show — not because they were privy to his behavior, but because they know of many Lauer-type pervs lurking in morning TV.
While Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, and former NBC personality Sara Haines all raised good points, the MVP of the discussion was hands down Meghan McCain — who said she’s been “done” with Lauer ever since he (allegedly) orchestrated the firing of Ann Curry.
That sentiment, which referenced rumors that Lauer planned his costar’s exit for reasons including the fact that he just didn’t like her, prompted Joy to explain:
“You know, karma’s a bitch!”
Yes, it is! Can we finally get that Curry comeback???
