Apparently she didn’t like the vacuum joke. Seems that Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie flicked a finger at Matt Lauer today that many took to look like she was flipping him the bird. It happened during this morning’s segment on vacuum cleaners when Lauer clipped “By the way this is the first time Savannah has used a vacuum cleaner”. She immediately denied any wrongdoing, tweeting “Folks!! That was my INDEX finger!” but like Today needs more in-fighting. The back-and-forth continued on Twitter with Lauer tweeting (with a mock photo at right) “Me storming out after your middle finger salute“. You can check out Savannah’s Twitter page for the complete thread and the video below:
