Matt Lauer can't seem to catch a break: First, a certain couch-hopping A-lister called him glib. Now, according to Sarah Palin, he's "extremely naive."
That is, per the Alaska governor, if he believes David Letterman's explanation Wednesday night that the host's admittedly "questionable" and "borderline" jokes this week were directed at 18-year-old daughter Bristol, and not 14-year-old Willow.
Letterman quipped that the Palin family went to a Yankees game and "there was one awkward moment during the seventh-inning stretch: Her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez."
That, says Palin, "crossed the line."
"I would say you and anybody else are extremely naive to believe that very convenient excuse of David Letterman's the other day," Palin said on Friday's Today show. "It took a couple of days for him to think of that excuse—no, he wasn't talking about my daughter, my 14-year-old that was with me at the game, he was talking about some other daughter."
Meanwhile, if Letterman was looking for support from Lauer, the late-night host was no doubt sorely disappointed.
