Geraldo Rivera, the Reporter Who Drugged and Groped Bette Midler, Just Tried to Defend Matt Lauer

his Wednesday, longtime Today show host Matt Lauer was fired from his job at NBC for "sexual misconduct." In a matter of hours, details poured out about the predatory sexual behavior Lauer had routinely engaged in while enjoying a $25 million per year position at NBC:

Lauer had a button in his office to lock in his hapless victims so "they could be alone." He liked to play "f***, marry, or kill," so he could talk about the co-hosts he wanted to sleep with. He once gifted a coworker with a sex toy and explicitly written instructions of how he would use them on her.

Basically, Lauer had behaved in the most despicable ways possible – both sexually and in his capacity as one of the stars of NBC.

As a result, he was roundly condemned across social media, and everyone was happy his reign of terror finally had come to an end.
