"Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for 'inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.' But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News," Trump tweeted early Wednesday.
"I'll tell ya, if anyone knows about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace at NBC, it's Donald J. Trump," Kimmel quipped. "Is he aware that he's him? I don't think he is. I think he sees Donald Trump on TV and goes, 'I like that guy.'"
Stephen Colbert also addressed Lauer's firing during his Late Show monologue, but really took Trump to task for his response.
"By fake news, do you mean, 'More than a dozen women have accused Trump of improper conduct or sexual assault .' Is that what you mean?" Colbert said, referring to a past headline published by The Washington Post. "Listen up! You don't get to comment! That is the pot calling the kettle at 3 a.m. and asking what she's wearing."

"Due to the tree lighting we taped tonight's show yesterday so if you're wondering why any of today's news is conspicuously absent this evening - now you know!" Meyers tweeted, referring to the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting event -- where Lauer's absence was conspicuous but never mentioned by his Today show colleagues.

Lauer's alleged behavior reportedly includes giving a colleague a sex toy as a present, with a note about how he wanted to use it on her. Another woman alleges he called her to his office and showed her his penis, and then reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act when she declined.
