With the way I dress you?” Rowr! As AM was concluding yesterday, American Morning co-anchor John Roberts felt compelled to address the criticism of his clothing choices by his Twitter followers. After thanking the audience for watching, John declared, “Before we go…a lot of people have been Tweeting me to say, ‘Why are you wearing a t-shirt and jeans?” As his co-host Kiran Chetry giggled, a seemingly miffed John remarked, “Obviously, it doesn’t translate on tv. I’m actually wearing a charcoal gray wool suit, jacket and pants, and a sweater.”
Turning to John, Kiran sweetly said, “Well, you look very nice.” Looking like an embarrassed laddie, John puckishly proclaimed, “No t-shirt and jeans this morning. Sorry!”
Subsequently, when Kiran tossed to CNN Newsroom anchor Kyra Phillips, mama Kyra growled, “Does someone have an issue [with] the way I dress you? Is that what the problem is here? So, you know what? They better start Tweeting me.”
Laughing heartily, John answered, “Yeah. Exactly. For the folks who are upset about what I was wearing, take it up with her.”
Reassuring her man, Kyra pontificated, “Yeah, Kiran’s with me. It is hip.”
No matter what they might say.
