    I don't think they're sad about him being fired, I think they're sad about how the guy who they considered a friend, had such a bad side.

    Of course they have a right to be upset. And the are sad, because they have been working with him for years… How do you just throw a friendship away. They were friends, and she was shocked…. How do you react when your feiend has done something so horrible

    How much you wanna bet the person who reported the sexual action didnt know the difference between sexual harasment and an accidental bump. I mean for all we know his had could have just accidentaly bumped her private part

    I wonder what would be inappropriate sexual behavior? Mi husband's friend came and touched my legs and wanted to give me an unsolicited massage and went to far that I clearly remember feeling his fingertips touching my butt. I was sick at that time from very severe anxiety and panic attacks. I said NO to the guy, and he immediately change his face and said I JUST WANTED TO CHEER YOU UP! Obviously, because of my illness was something psychiatric, husband don't pay attention to me, and he keeps being friends with the harasser.

    Savannah is just as awful as he is. She acted like Matt was a great person when she knew he helped force Ann Curry out the door. Why would anyone want to associate themselves with someone like that? She almost seemed apologetic for Matt and that was really disturbing.

    They are still devastating, they are still holding their hands while prepossessing their own drain into the swamp. A few days ago they even witness the first death penalty by military tribunal …Heartbreaking ! Devastating ! I'm crying !

    I remember when i was watching the news (because every day I wake up, mom turns the TODAY news on), I watched this sad moment and I was (sniff) devastated. My mom then said that she was happy that he was long gone and I am too. When will everybody finally realize that girls, boys, and many other people are strong… and will always tell and trust others….(sniff)

    …god bless (sniff) us all….

    Don't worry Matt It goes both ways women love that attention that a man in your position give them. And I'm pretty sure that you wouldn't give a woman attention like that if she really didn't act like she wanted it. I know exactly what was going on because I've been in that situation to with executive men and let's just say I could have made it go both ways but I chose not to do that to him and I had to make it up in my mind that I didn't want it ( it as in the attenion be it physical or verbal)anymore and when I did he didn't give that attention to me anymore . I actually really think it's disgusting that so many women now are doing this to men. IT IS THE WOMAN ALSO..KEEP IN MIND

    Too Many Blacks on the TODAY Show. I don't watch it.. Female oriented show led by an Egyptian Anchor. What happened to the Jamaicans? Lester and his Lesbian counterpart? The Today show needs DIVERSITY… It's to Afro-centric..

    Matt was at Saint Patrick's across the street, crying for forgiveness from Almighty God for his sinful ways. Ann Curry had to disconnect her phone — it could not handle the thousands of congratulatory calls.

    As long as your not under any contract you can resign at anytime for no reason, with or without notice, He should’ve resigned before they can fire him.

    She says she’s loved him as a friend and of a colleague, Matt Lauer probably thinks differently.

    This is why I hate the today show. They feel bad for Matt but not anyone who was sexually assaulted by him? What is wrong with you people? He touched women where they didn’t want to be touched, he had a button underneath his desk so he could lock the door behind women when she wanted to harass them, and he made sexual comments on live tv. And you want to tell me you feel bad for him and will miss him? What is wrong with you?

    I was watching this compilation of offensive interview questions. Matt Lauer and Sandra Bullock where he asks about her nude scene.

    "I'm heartbroken for Matt; he is my dear dear friend…"
    "I'm heartbroken to the brave colleague who came forward to tell her story…"

    Talk about transparent and fake…

    The reason Lauer was fired was for asking Clinton about her private email server! She was furious and had a meltdown after that interview and called a Comcast executive to get him fired! Look into it, her power is scary

    This video almost two years old but wow it's so cringey seeing these girls feel bad for him. I feel so bad for women that get harassed and when something finally happens to the abuser, people end up feeling sad for them.
