Reports are that Matt Lauer was getting some US$25 mil annually to host the internationally acclaimed “Today” show on NBC.  Matt was highly rated.  This is quite a fall, indeed.


If claims posted on Twitter are to be believed then Trump may not be resting too comfortably. Allegations have been made long before he (Trump) became president of the USA … that he groped women and was a sexual bully.

One distraught woman on tweeter alleges:

“He touched my vagina …”

Matt Lauer has been made an example by NBC and the effect is that such a fall in grace can only open the flood gate.

 Poetic Commentary

The many claims of sexual assault …
Begs the question … who is at fault …
Suppose the violation is only by the tongue …
Then this will unfold in the long run …
Wouldn’t this be oral assault …?
Whether by tongue or otherwise someone is at fault …
Are any of the complainants a liar? 
Is this why Twitter is on fire?


Can the Donald survive this scrutiny?
This seems to be like a mutiny …
When will it all end …?
Many said he did sexually offend
How many will be confined to the Pen?
Will we see an early end to all this sexual excitement?
Will it end with impeachment?

Ah, ah, ah …


We are living in serious times. Is this really Matt Lauer’s legacy? You be the judge.  This is our perspective. What is yours? Send our editor a letter.
