This isn’t the first time Dylan has mocked her co-host on the Today show.
Earlier this week, she rinsed Craig over the way he drank a cup of tea.
Dylan, Craig and Sheinelle Jones got to sample some Bigelow Tea while chatting to the brand’s CEO.
Dylan gave Craig a weird look as he drank his tea with his pinky finger in the air.
“Would you put your pinky back? That is just so-,” she said, before mimicking the way he held his cup herself.
“I’m making fun of you,” she said.
