Watch 'Today' show anchor Al Roker go off over #LochteGate



The "Today" show's Al Roker angrily called Ryan Lochte a liar on-air Friday after the Olympic swimmer made up a story about being robbed at gunpoint in Rio de Janeiro.

During an Aug. 19 taping of the "Today" show, the NBC weatherman got into a heated discussion with his co-anchors over Lochte's apology.

Billy Bush tried to say Lochte's story was just an '"embellishment," but Roker was not having any of it.

"He lied. He lied to you, he lied to Matt Lauer, he lied to his mom," Roker told Bush.

The video has since gone viral, sending Twitter into a Roker-applauding frenzy.

We've rounded up some of the best tweets, because let's face it--  we are all Al Roker.
