Hoda sips tequila while Kathie Lee rants about 'the Po-Po'

Kathie Lee saw a revival of the musical "Closer Than Ever" over the weekend and had nothing but good things to say about it on Monday. She got particularly effusive, which was probably not at all related to the blackberry margaritas the ladies were enjoying in honor of National Tequila Day.

When KLG began to air some of her grievances about modern musicals, Hoda took advantage of the straw in her drink to silently sip and stare straight ahead.

"It's for smart people," said KLG of "Closer than Ever's" lyrics. "There's none of this 'hey hey, goofy goofy' stuff."

Hoda slurped politely. KLG added, "'No 'I'm gonna call the po-po.' None of that.'"

"Anyhow!" said Hoda at last, setting down her drink. "Are you finished?"


Happy National Tequila Day! Be safe, see a good show, and avoid the po-po.
