The Today Show’s Matt Lauer was the target of a firestorm of feminist fury after he dared to ask the CEO of GM if she could be a good mom and a good CEO at the same time, giving her every opportunity to give a strong and legitimate answer for the camera.
Above is the video of what many hyperbolic liberals are acting like is the worst thing that has ever befallen womanhood ever, and here are the angry responses it generated:
Matt Lauer asked the CEO of G.M. if she can be CEO and a good mom, but don't blame him, because his job is to ask what idiots are wondering.

Katie Couric probably left @TODAYshow because Matt Lauer kept asking her how she could be a mom and have a job at the same time.

.@MLauer never guessed that you're that sexist. Asked any male CEOs how they juggle fatherhood and corporate responsibilities lately?

I have never wanted to slap Matt Lauer more than when he asked GM CEO whether she could still be a "good mom" and run GM. #sexist

Please tell me @MLauer wasn't casually sexist this morning. He didn't really ask GM's CEO if she can be successful& be a good mom, did he?

.@MLauer Hey Matt how do you find time to ask sexist questions to women w/kids while working & being a parent all at the same time?

Matt Lauer asked Mary Barra if she could run GM and be a good mom at the same time. Asshole.

Can you be a clueless misogynist and a morning talk show host? @MLauer

Can we all just agree that Matt Lauer is a huge dick?

Wow! You’d think he did something other than allow her to give a great answer that a lot of other moms want to look up to!
