Al Roker isn’t having it with Ryan Locate’s lying and he had a heated exchange with Bill Bush on air to prove it.
“He lied,” Roker told Billy Bush on Today. “He lied to you, he lied to Matt Lauer, he lied to his mom… He left his teammates hanging while he skedaddled. There was no robbery, there was no pull over. He lied.”
Lochte told the fake account of being pulled over and robbed at gunpoint in an interview with Bush on Sunday. Bush event started to defend Lochte, “He certainly lied about some details…” but was hilariously overthrown as the weather anchor cut in, “No.”

The video has gone viral since it surfaced online, and Twitter is now having a field day with it.
