On Tuesday's NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer began a hostile interview with Dick Cheney by running through various derisive labels for the former Vice President: "You've been called 'controversial' and 'divisive.' Some people have called you the most divisive political figure in this country in a century." Cheney simply quipped: "You left out Darth Vader." Later, Lauer interrogated Cheney on interrogation tactics used on terror suspects: "If an American citizen were to be taken into captivity in Iran, for example, and the government of Iran....Would it be okay for the Iranian government to waterboard that American citizen?"

LAUER: ‘You’re the ‘Most Divisive Political Figure in This Country in a Century.’
CHENEY: “And your fly is open.’
Matt Lauer is a jerk.
An even bigger question is why would former VP Cheney grant an interview to the likes of Lauer?
He deserves it for being stupid enough to appear on his show.
Lauer is a moron AND a gaping rectum!
Cheney simply quipped: “You left out Darth Vader.”
LOL!!! You gotta admire Cheney’s sens of humor.
I love when he had an interview and he took out the battery pack to his LVAD and caused the interviewer to be uncomfortable.
And more devisive than Obama? I think not. He's setting the gold standard for that.
It sounds like he did it just to have fun with the idiot.
Who is most people? What about the people who say it's not torture? The moslims declared war on us twice. We are still at war with them. We are not at war with Iran.
Exactly,, I don’t know why conservative politicians continue to be interviewed by Lauer or any hostile liberal media for that matter.
No Mattie, that would be Barack Hussein Obama.
Cheney has NEVER been afraid to go into the RADID DOGS pen. It makes the Lauers of the media look HATEFUL....just like they are.
Your question is one I’d like to hear answered. Why on earth do people like Dick Cheney grant an interview to the likes of people like Lauer? Will he sell more books from this interview? I wouldn’t think so, but then, what do I know?
I adore Cheney, and I doubt he cares what the world thinks of him, as long as he thinks good of himself. Simply, he rocks.
This is good for Cheney. He sells more books....
Lauer's a minor reason I try not to watch the olympics on NBC.
