Today’s Dylan Dreyer tells viewer ‘pls don’t judge me’ after he hits out at her ‘presumptive response’ live on air

Today’s Dylan Dreyer tells viewer ‘pls don’t judge me’ after he hits out at her ‘presumptive response’ live on air

TODAY show star Dylan Dreyer has urged one viewer not to “judge her” after he branded her response “presumptive”.

The anchor, 41, hit back after she was criticized following Tuesday’s episode.

During the show, Dreyer was outdoors chatting to fans who had braved the cold New York City temperatures.

She spoke to a little girl, from Tennessee, who is a huge Dolly Parton fan.

Dreyer asked if it was true that the youngster held a birthday party in homage to the country star, before inviting her to tell viewers who she had brought along to the show.

The youngster said she came with her mom before Dreyer asked: “Anyone you want to say hello to?”

She quipped back: “No”, which prompted huge laughter in the crowd.

Dreyer said: “Dad’s home watching somewhere right”, to which the child nodded.

But, one critic slammed Dreyer, saying: “Shame on you for making a presumptive response this morning regarding the little girl’s father being at home!!!

“Please try to be more aware and sensitive & PC.”

Dreyer hit back: “I talked to her about her father beforehand and she told me he was home watching.

“Please don’t just judge me and know that I talk to folks before making blanket statements.”

Dreyer recently revealed that she will be reading one of her children’s books “Misty the Cloud Friends Through Rain and Shine” in Tribeca, New York this Saturday.  

One fan said that they had bought one of her books as a present for their five-year-old niece.

Dreyer replied: “This made my day! I hope she enjoys it.”

The awkward exchange comes just weeks after the presenter was widely praised online after stepping in for her co-star Al Roker at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Roker, 68, missed the festive event for the first time in more than two decades amid his battle with blood clots.

One viewer said that the weather forecaster “rocked” the parade, while others branded her “awesome”.

Dreyer’s co-star Sheinelle Jones posted several love heart emojis, as did the official Today Instagram account.

NBC and MSNBC journalist Jacob Soboroff also showed his approval as he responded with three clapping emojis.

Dreyer told her hundreds of thousands of social media followers that it was an “honor” to cover the event.

But, during the coverage, she appeared to suffer an awkward on-air moment with President Joe Biden.

She told viewers: “Guys I think I’m getting a phone call. You know, I’m not one to take a phone call during TV — but I think I should answer this one.”

On the other end of the line was the commander-in-chief and first lady Jill Biden.

Dreyer seemed to wait an agonizing 17 seconds to receive a reply from the president amid connection issues.

She said: “I don’t think I can hear you. Can you hear me, Mr. President?”

The president and first lady were then overheard muttering something inaudible over the phone, while Dreyer awkwardly waited.

She said: “Hello? Happy Thanksgiving, Mr. President. Are you there?”

Biden responded: “We’re here” before letting out a laugh.
