Matt Lauer: ‘I Have Nothing Bad to Say About Donald Trump…I Don’t Need That Aggravation’

Today host Matt Lauer told NBC’s Late Show host Seth Meyers Monday night “I have nothing bad to say about Donald Trump, especially if he watches this show. Because I don’t need that aggravation.”

Lauer said speaking afoul of Trump can lead to an earful–and sometimes it gets personal.

Lauer also said Trump is “shaking things up” and getting “all the attention” right now in the Republican race because “this guy is great. He’s a showman. He’s got a lot of P.T. Barnum in him, and he knows how to promote things. He’s done it on television with his businesses for years.
