Who's Thomas Roberts? You must not have watched 'The View'



MNSBC anchor and reporter Thomas Roberts guest-hosted "The View" on Tuesday (June 22), and he even managed to get a few words in edgewise.

"The View" is featuring a series of male guest hosts this week while Whoopi Goldberg is on vacation and Barbara Walters recovers from a medical issue. Roberts was joined Tuesday by comedian D.L. Hughley, who filled Goldberg's moderator seat while Roberts sat in the middle of the "Hot Topics" table between Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd.

Roberts has been working for NBC News and MSNBC for the past couple of months; prior to that his career included stops at CNN, CBS News and "Entertainment Tonight."

He's also among the more prominent openly gay journalists working in television news. And as such, he had more than a few thoughts on the Food and Drug Administration's rule that men who have sex with other man at any time since 1977 can't give blood. You can see the segment in the video above.
