Seth Meyers Slams Matt Lauer: If You’re Asked to Install a Button Under a Desk, ‘Report It To The Police’

On Thursday night, Seth Meyers addressed the controversy surrounding his former NBC colleague Matt Lauer. The Late Night host mocked the fired Today Show anchor for the reported incident that allegedly took place at the Sochi Olympics in 2014. “And you thought the most disgusting thing at the Sochi Olympics was Bob Costa‘s pink eye!” Meyers joked. “Well move over, pink eye! There’s a new, grosser sheriff in town!” He then let Lauer explain how NBC News could let go “its most profitable and powerful figure” by playing a clip of him grilling Bill O’Reilly from an interview in September. “He was talking to Bill O’Reilly, but he could have just as easily been talking to a mirror,” Meyers said. Meyers ripped Lauer over the allegation that he gave a colleague a sex toy and a note that he wanted to use it on her. “As a general if you’re giving someone a dildo at work, you’re the dildo at work,” he quipped. He then ridiculed the unbelievable revelation that he had a button underneath his desk that locked the office door from the inside. “Let me address anyone who works in the button-installing business if I may,” Meyers continued. “Nobody wants a button under their desk for a non-evil reason… If someone asks you to install a button under their desk, just nod and then report it to the police.” Meyers also mocked alleged conversations he had with colleagues, particularly the “f**k, marry, kill” game. “Well I don’t know who you said you’d marry in those conversations, but I do know that you killed your career and that you f**ked yourself,” he reacted.
