Robertson remarked that "he can't let her get away with this stuff," also noting that although we don't "condone wife-beating these days," perhaps the man could move to Saudi Arabia...".* Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur break it down on The Young Turks.

Pat Robertson endorses physical abuse. In response, Cenk endorses emotional abuse. How about dealing with the situation without ANY kinds of abuse...?

I love it when Ana calls Cenk out. That's gotta be tough to do, not only is he probably tough to stand up to, but he's her boss. She's a tough chick!

Pat Robertson reminds me of the lovable old grandma who's a racist and serves oatmeal cookies.

Cenk, buddy, you need to hire Ana as your life coach. If your relationship is a battle ground, it needs to end. As soon as possible. Never mind the usual logistical issues that keep people from taking such a big step - the only right decision is to get out. Life is hard enough without taking abuse from the person closest to you. Occasionally, in a stressful situation, a person can say something abusive without realising - but that should be followed by an apology and better behaviour and in such a case it can be forgiven, but if it's a pattern? Or if it actually crosses over into the physical? Even just the threat of something physical? That's an immediate relationship stopper. There should be no second chances for that.
