Matt Lauer To Palin: “Are You Reading Some Newspapers” To Prepare For “Today” Show?
11:15 am, April 2nd | by Laura Donovan
Tomorrow will be a big day for former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who is set to make use of her journalism background and co-host the “Today” show bright and early. Though an ex-sportscaster, the former vice presidential candidate surely has the jitters about the upcoming gig, and Matt Lauer’s Monday morning joke at her expense probably won’t help her feel any less nervous about her next endeavor.
During Palin’s brief radio appearance on the “Today” show, Lauer alluded to Palin’s infamous 2008 interview with Katie Couris when he asked, “What are you doing to prepare? Are you reading some newspapers?”
The whole team and Palin laughed, and naturally the gun-toting political figure overlooked the question.
“That’s a fine how do you do? That’s a great start. Here we go,” Palin said.
Hey, at least she’s consistent when it comes to newspaper inquiries and has a sense of humor in the morning!
