During a recap on this morning’s episode, Meredith Vieira showed a clip of yesterday’s much-discussed interview with Spencer and Heidi Pratt. When Roker asked if it looked like an attack, as they claim, the hostess pointed out that what she showed was only a small segment.
“I kept going, then I hit them with Mace and tied them up,” he joked.
“Spencer said, ‘He’s lucky I was saved by Jesus, because a couple of weeks ago I probably would have ripped his head off for talking to my wife like that,’ ” Viera read from the transcript before asking Roker, “Are you proud?”
“Yes, I am,” Roker replied. “I believe I asked what a lot of people wanted to know and, if he had tried to come across, I would have dumped him like a bag of dirt.“
Actually, what I want to know is exactly what Spencer’s head sounds like once it’s gripped by a black man and careened off a television camera, so if you could remember that for next time, Al Roker, I’d appreciate it. Not that I’m telling you how to do your job or anything oh God don’t hurt me.
