MSNBC’s Roberts Calls Weiner Sexting Partner 'Bats**t' On Air

The Anthony Weiner scandal has gotten so ridiculous that even MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts can’t control himself. Appearing on MSNBC on July 30, Roberts responded to a clip of Weiner’s sexting partner appearing with Howard Stern that “this chick is bats**t.

The woman who’s real name is Sydney Leathers -- yes, that's her real name, stop laughing --  called out Anthony Weiner, who claimed since his original sexting scandal, has changed. Leathers’ response, “bulls***. I’m proof that you have not changed.” [See video below.  Audio here.]

For his part, a few minutes later Roberts apologized for his “slip of the tongue” comments:

I do want to apologize that I had the slip of the tongue right there. That was not very professional on my part. I do apologize.

THOMAS ROBERTS: And Leathers, I want to play this for everybody. Actually spoke to Howard Stern and claimed how Weiner was able to lure her in. Take a look.

SYDNEY LEATHERS: I think I am a little bit angry with him just because you know I feel like he lured me into this situation and then he didn’t want to own up to it. What pissed me off was him on the campaign trail saying I've changed and trying to act like he has this perfect marriage now and everything is just peachy.

HOWARD STERN: The hypocrisy got to you?

LEATHERS: Yeah, I was like bull s***. I’m proof that you have not changed.

ROBERTS: Meanwhile, this chick is so bat shit, -- you know what. Excuse me! But Leathers reportedly considering a porn deal now. So that is why I say that this whole thing is such a big mess..And I do want to apologize that I had the slip of the tongue right there. That was not very professional on my part. I do apologize.
