She admitted that she felt “a little funky.” Her friends told her to take a pregnancy test since she didn’t feel well. Hoda was kind and allowed Jenna Bush to share the rest of her story. That wasn’t the case for Hoda when she talked about the first time she considered adoption.

“One of the things that I did not expect through adoption was the feeling that you get when you’re plodding along with your life as normal, and one day, you get a text from the agency and it says ‘Please call us right away,'” Hoda explained.

Jenna Bush Hager interrupted her more than once. Hoda tried to explain what it was like to hear back from an adoption agency informing her that she was about to become a mom. Her co-host shared that she didn’t know what it was like to feel pregnant with a child. She had to call the adoption agency back to get the news.

“It feels like that, it feels like that” Jenna Bush Hager told her. “Because no matter whatever way you meet, you are meeting your baby.”

Today Show fans weren’t happy with Jenna Bush’s speaking over her co-host. Hoda was too emotional to notice. However, it left a bad taste in the viewers’ mouths at home. Some of them took to that video to share their thoughts.

  1. I love the Today Show but Jenna is just too loud! She always talks over Hoda and it needs to stop. She has this “look at me” attitude that is so annoying! Grow up and shut up!

  2. Jenna is wonderful! 😄
    Such a breath of fresh air.
    This feels like another attempt to cause drama where there isn’t any.

  3. I watched the Today’s show once. It was when Hoda and Jenna had professionals on the show showing how to put on makeup, the proper manicure, etc. BOTH HODA ND JENNA did not shut up. They talked OVER every single guest. It was the rudest segment I have ever seen. Let the freaking guest speak, that’s why they are on the show. Never going to watch again.

  4. I think Jenna is behaving like a privileged child. Like she has not been taught boundaries nor appropriate etiquette outside of being the child of presidents, etc.

    Wonder what her parents and grandparents think about her behavior.
