McDonald’s is a great American company, but “Today Show” host Matt Lauer’s statement during today’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade struck some viewers, including liberal producer Laurie David and Politifact reporter Steve Contorno, as a bit odd.
This #MacysParade jumped the shark when Matt Lauer said McDonalds cared about the well being if children.

McDonalds committed to the "well-being of children everywhere." Matt Lauer just said that.

Our commenters point out that Lauer was probably referring to Ronald McDonald House charities — a worthy cause indeed.
