Watch Meredith Vieira Call Homeless Internet Hero 'Delusional'
Unless you've been living under a pile of dead birds (or crabs!), you've probably read about Ted Williams, the homeless Ohio man with a golden radio voice (not the frozen-headed dead baseball icon). Since becoming a viral hit on Monday, Ted has been offered a job by his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers -- presumably the contract was written in Comic Sans -- been accosted by the TSA, and visited New York to appear on the Today show. It's quite the story, even if there is something a little ridiculous about the idea that everyone is surprised a homeless person has something to offer to society. Anyway! How did Ted's appearance on Today go? Pretty well, except for the part where Meredith Vieira called him "delusional."
To be fair, Vieira was only kidding around -- commenting on Williams' near-devotional praise of Matt Lauer -- but still: The guy was homeless on Monday, now he's breathing the same temperature controlled air as Matt Lauer. Maybe let him fawn just a little bit. Watch the clip below.
