The man is just slime. Condescension wrapped up in talking points, then attached to a strong man and dipped in sarcasm. You can tell Priebus wants to get nasty and has a hard time restraining himself. HUGE congrats to Thomas for sticking to the point and keeping his sense of humor.
I think I got the vid right, but if I didn't it starts about 2:14. Mediaite says "MSNBC Anchor Stuns Morning Joe Crew", but I don't see anyone stunned, just dancing to get around the bald f'ng truth Roberts speaks.
All sorts of fun stuff happening today.
Melissa had a lovely show today, so elegant in so many ways. Many of us needed that touch of class after such a brutal election cycle.
If only she and Chris Hayes could move to weekdays, enlarge their audiences, and open a few eyes.
"There are many other fantastically loving, wonderful, creative, fulfilling and healthy ways to make family. Even Jesus was born to an unwed mom and raised by a doting stepfather."
MSNBC anchor and newlywed Thomas Roberts:
"Gavin Newsom, Lieutenant Governor of California flew in to marry us. it was epic, so special, the best night of our lives by far. I highly recommend it to everybody out there. Go get married, whoever you want to marry. In certain states now, if you are part of the lesbian and gay community, you have that option to be able to do that. And it was so fulfilling. I grew up pretending a lot to fit in, pretending to be straight. And I find now ... when you find your voice, you do not want to shut up about it. I have found my voice. I feel very privileged to have found it. Patrick and I were together 12 years up to the point where we got married, and we deserved that opportunity."
I had heard that Bashir was hired by MSNBC a while ago, and wondered if it had anything to do with Keith's leaving. Doesn't look like it. Oh, and congrats to Thomas Roberts, he's been surprisingly good.
Martin Bashir‘s MSNBC show will finally hit the airwaves Monday, February 28, at 3pmET. The network also announced that Thomas Roberts, who has been filling in at 3pm, will now anchor the 11amET hour which means “Jansing & Co.” is scaled back to one hour at 10amET.
MSNBC announced Bashir’s hire last July. He joined the network in September and his show has been in development since.
Roberts, a former Headline News anchor, joined MSNBC as a fill-in host last April anchoring MSNBC’s “First Look” and NBC’s “Early Today.” In December, the network brought him on full time. Chris Jansing, who also remains a correspondent for NBC News, has been tapped to helm MSNBC’s coverage of the Royal Wedding this Spring.
OMG, it's going to be Royal Wedding 24/7 soon. Time to stock up on "happy pills".
