Chris Matthews Hypes Matt Lauer's Palin Interview: "They've Got A Limited Budget At The 'Today' Show These Days, And They're Spending On Her"

Posted: Updated:

Chris Matthews discussed Sarah Palin's political future with The Week columnist Margaret Carlson and former Palin aide Larry Persily on "Hardball" Monday.

"Yeah, well, you know that phrase — where is Matt Lauer? Where in the world is Matt Lauer? He's with Governor Palin up in Alaska! And they've got a limited budget at the 'Today' show these days, and they're spending on her. That tells you something."
