Matt Lauer reveals his tattoo on hate



Matt Lauer, perhaps emboldened by the act of releasing his long list of complaints about Ronan Farrow, let his new tattoo show up on Wednesday. In a photo obtained by We, the former Today co-anchor is seen driving in New York with the phrase “Hatred corrodes the container in which it is transported” inked in cursive on his right forearm. The expression was spoken by former Senator Alan Simpson at the funeral of George HW Bush in 2018. USA today a full quote:

  • “So the punch line for George Herbert Walker Bush is this. You would have liked it on your side. He never lost his sense of humor. Humor is the universal solvent against the abrasive elements of life. That’s what humor is. He never hated anyone. He knew what his mother and my mother always knew. Hatred corrodes the container it is on. ”

We notes that the 62-year-old had previously spoken of possibly wanting a tattoo. While still working for NBC News, Lauer in July 2014 said he was “on the fence” to get one during a discussion on Today, stimulating the trendy Twitter hashtag #MattTattooYes. Vanity Fair seems to think he wanted the tattoo to be unveiled, given the “practical poses” he held while being photographed. Body art has stimulated Los Angeles Times to encourage readers to “try not to roll their eyes” when they see it. In other Lauer news, Brooke Nevils, the woman whose rape charge denies Lauer, tweeted in response to her column on Farrow, “DARVO: Deny, Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender”.
