Kathie Lee and Hoda Joke About Anthony Weiner Twitter Controversy (VIDEO)

Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifrord on 'Today'Earlier this week, a controversy erupted around New York congressman Anthony Weiner and a photo sent from his Twitter account to a woman in Seattle. The photo was a close-up of a man's lower abdominal area (or "junk") in gray underwear. It has triggered an avalanche of puns and punditry, and this morning on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb took it as a prompt to talk about genitals in general.

Jon Stewart, a friend of Weiner's, offered his defense on 'The Daily Show,' saying he knows Weiner well enough to know that wasn't him in the photo. That caused Kotb to wonder who pays attention to what their genitals look like. "Men," said Gifford. "They've seen it from every angle and they just can't get enough."

Taking it one disturbing step further, Gifford said she wouldn't be able to pick her own genitals out of a lineup, and once more, she's not sure she's ever seen her own. We hope no one has her Twitter password.

Weiner's bad behavior and persistent lying shows a serious character and personality flaw, and not a person who experienced a momentary lapse of integrity. what a sad day in NYC history it would be to have a person like him running that great city. Although his wife's words were supportive and forgiving, I felt great compassion for such a great lady to publicly experience and have to stomach such profound shame through no fault of her own.
