NEW YORK CITY - Matt Lauer is not exactly known for being a compassionate individual and in fact Vice-President Joe Biden has compared his cold, dull personality to that of the iceberg that sunk the Titanic.
Lauer interviewed Paula Deen on the Today Show and at times it seemed more like a debate than an interview.
Granted the 66-year-old Southern Fried cook knows full well what she said and she regrets it but that did not stop Matty, as Sarah "Snowflake" Palin calls Lauer, from zeroing in on her like a World War II German U-Boat commander on a French freighter.
Lauer made it a point to state that Deen has been dropped by The Food Network, The Hey Y'all Cornbread Company, The Paula Deen Bobblehead Doll Company, Walmart, and most recently The I'm So Lovin' This Here Buttah Butter Company.
Matt Lauer who many blamed for getting Ann Curry canned acted as if he was a prosecuting attorney and he was relentless in his questioning of the elderly Southern lady.
Lauer even went as far as to ask her if she is now or has ever been a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
Deen screamed out at the top of her lungs, "NO MATT! I AM NOT A MEMBER OF THE KKK!"
"Wimpy" Lauer then asked if she had ever noticed that most NBA players and most hip hop and rap bands are black.
Deen got a puzzled look on her face and asked old Sour Puss what in the world that had to do with the price of chitlin's in Chattanooga.
Matt shrugged his shoulders and told her that he was the interviewer and she was the interviewee and she would answer the questions or else risk having people think that she is arrogant, sarcastic, and conceited.
Paula shook her head, took of her microphone, and told the skinny, little balding fella that she did not come on the show to get ambushed and attacked by no puny sawed off runt.
SIDENOTE: President Obama felt that Matt Lauer went way overboard and reportedly called him after the show aired and told him that he is never, ever to set foot on White House property again.
