Famed NBC weatherman Al Roker is not impressed with 32-year-old Olympian Ryan Lochte and his scandalous account of a fake robbery which took place is Rio. Lochte concocted a story where he and his teammates were robbed at gunpoint to cover up they had been out drinking. During the team’s drunken binge they brawled with a gas station attended and vandalized a gas station restroom causing thousands of dollars in damage.
While Billy Budd, Al Roker, and Natalie Morales discussed Lochte’s nonsense Roker became animated after Budd attempted to downplay Lochte’s behavior. Roker shouted, “He lied to you, he lied to Matt Lauer, he lied to his mom. He left his teammates hanging while he skedaddled. There was no robbery. There was no pullover. He lied.”
Billy Bush attempted to gain control of the conversation, “Ok calm down. Listen. If a security guard is standing in front of you with a badge and is asking you for money and you don’t speak Portuguese…” Roker interjects, “There was a translator.” Natalie Morales chimed in, “Well the swimmers said there wasn’t so there’s a different story.” Billy Budd then stated, “But if somebody said you have to give me money or you can’t leave.” Roker was having none of the nonsense and said, “He lied!” Billy Budd tried to defend Lochte by saying, “He embellished!” However, Roker was unimpressed, “No! No! No! He didn’t embellish. He lied. He said their car was hit.”
Roker so thoroughly destroyed Budd’s attempts at downplaying Lochte and Cafe.com made a debate style video with bells and buzzers showing Roker’s ownage:
