I think the most foolish opinion that I’ve heard from the Ryan Lochte debacle centers around the theory that the US swimmers were just this bunch of kids having fun.
I mean the idea that destroying a gas station bathroom after a night of drinks is unacceptable, even if we’re were talking about young college kids.
Ryan Lochte is a 32-year-old professional — who was more entitled than he was drunk — when he decided he could vandalize at will, without repercussions or consequence.
During the Olympic coverage on NBC a short time ago, Al Roker got fired over Billy Bush’s delusional response to white privilege — hammering his co-host for daring to continue to believe Lochte’s version of the events.
Twitter was front and center for the battle — and the universe responded accordingly:
That Al Roker clip is especially hilarious because the other dude referred to 32 y/o Ryan Lochte as a "kid" to try to soften his image.

Al's wife: How was work honey
Al Roker: *pours a glass of Henny*
Wife: Oh it was one of those days. Well I'll just leave you alone

Kudos to Al Roker. As far as Billy Bush…I'd expect nothing more from a member of the Bush family. 🙄 https://t.co/woaRVe6lbS
