Hurricane Ida hit Louisiana on Sunday (Aug. 29) as a Category 4 storm with winds of 150 mph – and before that happened, Al Roker was on the scene.
The 67-year-old weatherman delivered his report while facing gusts of winds, rain, and rising waters, which led some to wonder and be concerned for him. And a number of internet trolls were saying Roker was too old to be out in those kind of conditions.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart,” Al told everyone – including the concern trolls – to chill. “You know, look – it’s one of these things, and folks on Twitter have been [saying], ‘Well, first of all, why is NBC putting him out there?’ I volunteered to come out here. This is what I do. It’s what I’ve done for 40 years. Hear Al’s clapback here: https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/al-roker-2-word-response-191231847.html
