MSNBC Anchor Stuns Morning Joe Crew: GOP Men Fixate Over ‘Sanctity Of Sperm’

A hush fell over the set of Morning Joe on Wednesday morning when MSNBC dayside anchor Thomas Roberts submitted his thoughts on Texas abortion filibuster leader state Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth). In a discussion about Republican men opposing a woman’s right to choose to have a later-term abortion, Roberts used graphic anatomical language to illustrate his belief that the GOP’s priorities relating to abortion were skewed.

“Isn’t she standing up for femaleness in general?” Roberts asked of Davis. “It’s interesting to see Kathleen Parker and people like Peggy Noonan who will pile on a female leader who’s emerging.”

“Women are usually the first to pile on to other women,” said MSNBC contributor Nicolle Wallace.

Roberts said that the GOP’s “seasoned” female voices are free to oppose abortion because they no longer need to seek reproductive medical services.

“Men should not care about the sanctity of sperm over the women’s right to choose so much, and there are too many Republican men that need a refresher course and a manual as to how reproductive rights work and a woman’s vagina,” Roberts continued.

“I think you’re talking about very damaging comments that Republicans made about inappropriate rape?” Wallace asked. “A topic that never ceases to entertain in the media.”
