When it comes to weather guys, Al Roker is an undisputed GOAT. He’s always there to give us the latest news and updates, but I have to start wondering who he pissed off at MSNBC for his latest assignment.
Roker was on the scene covering Hurricane Ida as it approaches landfall on the Louisiana coast.
While he was giving the latest, Roker was getting pummeled by waves. Considering Al Roker recently turned 67 years old, Twitter had some thoughts and wanted the network to protect Roker at all costs.

It’s 2021. I don’t need to see Al Roker risking his life and his crew’s lives to show me a hurricane. It can be reported on without standing outside in the middle of it.
