Surely, by now most of Americans know that new anchor Matt Lauer was fired from NBC. He was terminated after allegations of sexually harassing women at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia surfaced.

But let’s not forget that Lauer is one of the loudest critics of President Trump, especially when he was the one who criticized then-candidate Trump for the “locker room talk.”

President Trump quickly responded to the news, as did many other big names.

Katie Couric, former co-host of “The Today Show” who worked with Lauer for 15 years, also contributed to the allegations.

Katie Couric said that Matt Lauer slapped her on the ass during their time working together.

Katie was on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” back in 2012, and when Andy asked about Matt’s most annoying habit, she said Lauer slapping her on the ass during their time working together.

“On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer. It represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment,” NBC Chairman Andy Lack said in a memo to staffers.

“While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over twenty years he’s been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident,” he continued.

Co-host Hoda Kotb said she has known Lauer for years and “loved him as a friend and a colleague.”

“It’s hard to reconcile the man who walks in every day” with the man mentioned in the complaint, she said.

Savannah Guthrie said that she was so sorry for the women who accused Lauer of assault, saying “it’s long overdue” that women aren’t afraid to stand up against abusive men.

But adding that it can be difficult to make sense out of the allegations of sexual misconduct against a longtime colleague.

“How do you reconcile your love for someone with the revelation that they have behaved badly and I don’t know the answer to that,” she said. “But I do know that this reckoning, that so many organizations have been going through, is important, it’s long overdue and it must result in workplaces where all women — all people — feel safe and respected.”

Lauer’s termination comes amid a storm of sexual assaults allegations against high-profile men

Last week, journalist Charlie Rose was terminated by CBS News, PBS and Bloomberg after several women came forward accusing him of past sexual misconduct.
