Seth Meyers calls Matt Lauer 'the dildo at work'

Seth Meyers rips Matt Lauer

If Matt Lauer is looking for sympathy in the wake of his firing from Today over inappropriate sexual behavior, he's not going to find any with Seth Meyers.

On Thursday's Late Night, Meyers ripped into Lauer and the allegations made against him in a Variety article. Among other things, Lauer allegedly gave a female colleague a sex toy, accompanied by a note saying that he wanted to use it on her. "As a general rule, if you're giving someone a dildo at work, you're the dildo at work," Meyers said.

He also took issue with someone installing a button under Lauer's desk that let him lock the door without getting up — "if someone asks you to install a button under their desk, just nod and then report it to the police" — and scoffed at Lauer's purported fondness for a game of "F—k, Marry, or Kill." "I don't know who you said you'd marry in those conversations, but I do know you killed your career and f—ked yourself," he said. Meyers didn't just go off on Lauer — he also had words for men who think unsuspecting women want to see them in their underwear (they don't) and President Trump, who isn't making a whole lot of sense these days.
