Who filled in for him, R2? I only watch that show when Jonathan Capehart is the fill-in.
I did not realize until yesterday that Willie is Bill Geist's son.
He is somewhat charming in a douchebag and juvenile way but seems like the only way to get a new job these days is nepotism?
[R3]- That is a creepy story...wonder why the story was buried? I doubt Joe had anything to do with it..
It's Luke Russert, R4.
He's a Republican Pig.
R7, how would you know whether Joe had anything to do with it?
He had a lot of influence. She died in his office. Anyone who knows what happened is not talking, but Scarborough resigned from Congress because of it, anyway.
I'm not accusing him of murdering her or even of having an affair with her, but there's no more reason to assume he had nothing to do with it than there is to assume he was fucking her and killed her.
When we don't know what happened, we shouldn't assume anything at all.
But the fact the story was buried should be a clue that something happened beyond the official story. We just don't know what that is, and we are unlikely ever to know what that story is.
Oh, fuck, R8. I'm glad I didn't bother. I hate Luke Russert, and although I'm an MSNBC junkie, when any show has LR on as a guest or a substitute host, I change the station immediately.
I think Willie is more libertarian. He sort of hinted in an interview years ago that he's a Ron Paul supporter.
I do like his deadpan sense of humor, but it can come off smug at times.
R12, he named his son George W. Geist.
He says it was to honor two grandfathers, George and William, but he seemed to be a pretty big Bush supporter at the time.
Nepotism Broadcast Company loves douchebags like Willie...and Mika, Chelsea, Luke, Maria, and Jenna.
He seems to be chummy with Andy Cohen so I don't think he's a homophobe, but it just seems to me he had to have gotten his job by nepotism.
[quote]it just seems to me he had to have gotten his job by nepotism.
Willie Geist is the biggest closet case ever.
Willie Geist is not a closet case. Give it up.
He talked about the hatred spewed at him when he named his kid. I think people can be a little fucked up in their thinking when you can't even name your kid without someone thinking it's politically motivated.
Willie is a very smart funny guy but he's funniest when he's snarky and that doesn't play well with the moms in Kansas. It's a shame he has to dumb everything down for morning TV.
Isn't Geist the name of the owner of the network on 30 Rock?
Geist looks "special" and has a great face for radio. On TV he's doughy looking and his eyebrow waxing makes it look like his day job is to fill in from the tips he makes weekend nights at Madame Suede's House of Drag.
Liza married his brother, David Geist.
I passed him on the street a few weeks back. Gives off a totally douchey vibe. I bet he drives a BMW.
At what age does one drop the 'ie' from the end of one's name? Willy sounds very juvenile. Will sounds more professional, IMHO.
His father is Bill Geist, the CBS correspondent who does fluff pieces for Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes.
R21, you are fucking brain damaged.
He's definitely being looked at to replace Lauer. He and Savannah Guthrie have decent chemistry. I just think he's too "NY" (even though he grew up in NJ) for the flyover set. Lauer is from the Northeast but I think he's A) rather dopey, and B) did enough morning TV in hideous places like Richmond to take off any edge he may have had. I think Willie went to CNN right after graduating from Vanderbilt, then right to NBC, so he's never worked any shitholes that would humble him.
So, just how big is Geist's willie?
little body hair, fat and long, not huge, maybe 9 inches, big hairless balls.
The opening line from his Wiki bio is
[quote]William Russell "Willie" Geist is an American television personality.
When you have to label someone a "personality" that means he's famous for no reason.
He's tall and quite strapping. I'm sure there's a big pink cock in those trousers.
He looks like Bob Sirott's kid or like the son of Willie Ames if Willie married someone ugly like ON-Lez kid or one of the Potato head sisters.
I think he looks like a more sinister version of Ron Howard. Sort of Patrick Batemen meets Opie if you will!
I was perplexed when Lil Kim and Willie Geist appeared on Andy Cohen's snooze fest and Kim declared that Willie was cute. I know that Kim likes vanilla(especially vanilla pussy) BUT Willie Geist? She must be far more of an oreo than I had ever imagined.
He's fugly, and overly New York.
r32 - Lil' Kim LOVES ugly white boys. She dated Scott Storch and almost got married to him for goodness sake! I think I heard she ended the relationship because of Scott's addiction problem.
Here's why Geist is being pushed--he's non-threatening to Matt Lauer.
Matt Lauer was off again this morning; and Willie Geist and Savannah Guthrie were having a gay ole time.
Nance from Delray
I like him a lot. Prefer him to Matt and Willard and Al.
To the idiot that called Willie a doucebag, "go put your head into that bag". Willie is sweet and appears very geniune. He is a real plus for the Today show. Shame on you for being so crude.
