Al Roker Slams Ryan Lochte and Confronts Billy Bush in Viral Video: ‘He Lied’

Al Roker thinks this whole Ryan Lochte debacle is pretty cut and dried: He lied.

“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.”

Bush started to defend Lochte, “He certainly lied about some details…” but his thought was hilariously in vain as the weather anchor cut in, “No.”

Now, an edited version of the video credited to Cafe.com — which has since gone viral on Twitter — keeps score with bells and buzzers.

Lochte told the fake account of being pulled over and robbed at gunpoint in an interview with Bush on Sunday. Lochte has since apologized for lying and will now appear in a sit-down interview with Matt Lauer that will first air on NBC Saturday night.

Lochte’s original account to Bush:

“We got pulled over, in the taxi, and these guys came out with a badge — a police badge — no lights, no nothing,” Lochte recalled. “Just a police badge and they pulled us over. They pulled out their guns, they told the other swimmers to get down on the ground — they got down on the ground. I refused, I was like, ‘We didn’t do anything wrong, so — I’m not getting down on the ground.’ And then the guy pulled out his gun, he cocked it, put it to my forehead and he said, ‘get down’ and I put my hands up. I was like ‘whatever.’ He took our money, he took my wallet — he left my cell phone, he left my credentials.”
