  • Has Thomas Roberts Never Heard of Roe v. Wade?

    Roe v. Wade was horribly decided, as even some prominent supporters of abortion rights will agree. But for now, it remains the law of the land. And it establishes a constitutional right to abortion. Amazingly, Thomas Roberts appears unaware of that. On today's Morning Joe, commenting on Mike Huckabee's speech of yesterday on how Dems wrongly accuse Republicans of a "war on women," Roberts twice said "if old white men could get pregnant, abortion would be a constitutional right."

  • Thomas Roberts Kvetches: Joe & Mika 'Eviscerating' Christie-Accusing Hoboken Mayor

    Where is Willie Geist when we need him? Thomas Roberts—who has replaced Brian Schachtman as Way Too Early host—is seemingly also taking over much of Geist's turf as Morning Joe sidekick. And whereas Geist was, at least in the MSNBC context, a voice of affable equanimity, Roberts is an unabashed liberal advocate. Witness today's Morning Joe. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski questioned the character of Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer. Joe and Mika wondered how, after assertedly writing in her personal diary that Chris Christie's corrupt nature "literally brings tears to my eyes," Zimmer could then take to Twitter to paradoxically...
  • MSNBC anchor: ‘So many people consider President Obama to be the first gay president’

    MSNBC host Thomas Roberts said Monday that “many people consider President Obama to be the first gay president.” Roberts was speaking to Shawn Gaylord of Human Rights First, a group fighting discrimination against homosexuals and other sexual minorities. The organization is pushing the White House to defy Russia’s harsh anti-gay laws by sending openly gay delegates to next year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. “It’s not about asking for special protection,” Roberts claimed. “It’s about asking and seeking equal respect. We do know as we look at the larger picture here, Shawn, that LGBT rights is just one of the...
  • MSNBC's Roberts: Republicans Want To Stop Women From Voting

    The liberal claim that Republicans are engaging in a perpetual “war on women” seems to have taken a new turn on MSNBC. No longer does the term “war on women” apply only to access to abortion but now encompasses voting rights as well. Appearing on MSNBC on October 29, liberal MSNBC host Thomas Roberts claimed that Republicans are trying to restrict a woman’s access to the ballot box. This comes one week after fill-in host Michael Eric Dyson made a similar complaint on The Ed Show. [See video after jump.]  MSNBC's Roberts: Republicans Want To Stop Women From Voting Speaking...
  • MSNBC Anchor to Congresswoman: When did You Stop Loving America?

    Apparently the qualifications for becoming an MSNBC anchor consist primarily of being able to ask Republicans the intellectual equivalent of “when did you stop beating your wife?” Which explains how Thomas Roberts got the gig. While interviewing Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) Roberts posed the following question: MSNBC Anchor To GOP Congresswomen: Do You Hate Obamacare More Than You Love Your Country? Understandably Blackburn seemed at an initial loss with her answer to the audacious and ideological insult, which Roberts had so cleverly disguised as an inappropriate question. Then again, he does work for MSNBC. He may seriously believe that...
  • Carolla rips MSNBC 'p---y a--wipe' Thomas Roberts for 'white shame' comments (Warning: Language)

    On his Wednesday podcast, comedian Adam Carolla dissected the reactions to last Saturday’s “not guilty” verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. Some of the media reaction that followed suggested the justice system had failed Trayvon Martin, the black 19-year-old shot by Zimmerman in February 2012. Carolla, author of “Not Taco Bell Material,” reacted to those remarks, saying that in some ways skin color and other physical attributes are something that will have to be overcome. “I’m willing to admit there’s a certain amount of racism,” Carolla said. “It’s not nearly — it’s not nearly what the news builds it up...

    Thanks to NRO's Andrew Johnson, we learned that on Friday MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts used selective clips from a speech by Vice President Joe Biden to make it look as though Biden was making a push for gun control. Biden's speech had nothing to do with guns.

    MSNBC host Thomas Roberts on Friday aired a portion of Vice President Joe Biden's speech given at a plaque dedication remembering the Americans lost in the Benghazi terror attack and falsely claimed he was mourning "children as the victims of gun violence." Roberts was discussing Biden's reported plans to make a second push for gun control after losing in the first round...
  • MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts Calls Out Barney Frank for Politicizing Boston Marathon Bombing

    Former congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) went on MSNBC this morning to react to yesterdayÂ’s bombing at the Boston Marathon. In a shameless moment of advocacy, Frank used the tragedy to make a political statement about revenue and the size of government. Considering that this happened on MSNBC, you might expect the host to condone the congressmanÂ’s liberal activism, but anchor Thomas Roberts actually called Frank out for his despicable attempt to politicize this tragedy. Early in the interview, Frank stressed that none of us know much about who and what were behind this event as of yet. So the former...

    The liberal media's push for gun control has long included the tactic of attempting to shame the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other gun rights activists into silence. That tactic was once again deployed by MSNBC's Thomas Roberts this morning in his interview with liberal Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal (Conn.), who is calling on the nation's oldest civil rights organization to cease and desist robocalls to phone numbers in the Newtown, Connecticut, area. At no point in the softball interview, however, was it mentioned that some Newtown parents like Mark Mattioli and Bill Stevens have testified in opposition to fresh...

    In a segment this morning discussing the breaking news that a panel of judges on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia unanimously ruled that some of President Obama's recess appointments had been made in an unconstitutional manner, MSNBC's Thomas Roberts turned to network contributor and former Democratic Senate staffer Jimmy Williams for his reaction. Williams conceded the the court had ruled correctly, but rather than chiding the president for violating his oath of office with unconstitutional appointments, he blamed Senate Republicans for driving Mr. Obama to do so. For his part, Roberts agreed, mumbling "mm hmm" in...

    Sure, we've all blanked on a person's name. But how we handle it can reveal how we feel about the person in question. On the MSNBC Live show he was hosting during today's 11 AM ET hour, Thomas Roberts, blanking on Michele Bachmann's name, referred to her as "what's-her-face." View the video here.

    The racism charges keep coming at the Republicans. The same day actor Morgan Freeman said the Tea Party was “racist” in its attempts to get President Barack Obama out of office, an MSNBC anchor said the GOP presidential candidates would like to go back to a time when women couldn’t vote and “slavery was cool.” Thomas Roberts’ comments came in response to former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum‘s answer during Thursday’s presidential debate about gay service members in the military. Santorum said the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell“ amounted to ”social experimentation” and, if elected, he would re-instate a similar...
