Clips from Last Night: Robin Roberts on her new health battle and Roger Clemens says "50 is the new 40"

On Thursday, "Good Morning America" anchor, Robin Roberts and the entire cast of GMA sat down with Piers Morgan where Roberts described what it was like to get her diagnosis of Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) right after learning "GMA" topped the "Today" show in ratings.

"It was one of those surreal moments with the world colliding," said Roberts. "I don't just think of that we became number one officially, that was also when I was officially told of my - of my condition."

"But I also feel being in the public eye that there's this - my mother says make your message," added a positive Roberts about her condition. "And the message here has been about being a bone marrow donor. I didn't know about being a bone marrow donor." To learn more about bone marrow donation and to join the registry go to www.BeTheMatch.org.

Former NY Yankees, Roger Clemens also joined the program from Sugar Land, Texas to talk about his return to the pitcher's mound with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the independent Atlantic League. "It will not be anything like five years ago," said Clemens. "I'm not even close to being up to par or have I trained. I've been telling people, there's a difference - I've been working out and I've been throwing."

But I feel fairly young," continued Clemens. "Everybody is telling me that - 50 is the new 40. I say that, but check in with me on Sunday. I probably will lose a couple of inches in height and I'll be in an ice tank somewhere. My body responds well to ice. That's the good thing."

Watch the clips, and listen to the interviews, as Clemen answers Morgan's question, "Is the Rocket firing on all cylinders?"

    Just as Obama concealed the true plans for his initial term behind rhetoric of ending partisan differences and cutting the federal deficit, Obama's re-election theme of creating jobs conceals more than it reveals about his real agenda for a second term: the "progressive" program to complete the fundamental transformation of America during the next four years.

  2. NOBAMA2012

    Obama's second-term plans call for a "New Deal"-style overhaul of the economy replete with the creation of a National Infrastructure Development Bank to oversee government control of the financial system; a massive, government-run jobs program to coincide with "paycheck fairness"; full amnesty for illegal aliens; defunding of the U.S. military while channeling Pentagon money to "clean" energy initiatives; a new, multibillion dollar "green" stimulus; and implementing Obamacare in measures nearly impossible to reverse. And that is just the start.

    Barack Obama:

    Alias Barry Soetoro pawns himself as Barack Obama, the humanitarian, the POTUS, the campaign for hope and change. But we know better. Barry is a radical Marxist who was raised by Communist parents and Communist grandparents. His mentors were known Communists, his contacts in college were strictly Marxists supporters, Marxist professors and a group of Pakistani activists as stated in his book, “Dreams from My Father”.

    Barack Obama, tell us about Frank Marshall Davis or Bill Ayers. Surely you remember Mr. Davis. After all, your mother knew him all too well. Mr. Ayers, a known terrorist, responsible for at least a dozen bombings, helped your early Illinois campaign by raising money, thru his organization Underground Weather. Tell us about your trip to Pakistan (’81) with Pakistani Wahid Hamid.

    Share with us your ideals of socialism; after all you’re a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), referred as the “New Party”. Please tell us why you have been influenced by the writings of Karl Marx, the prelude to Communism. Share with us your association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Do you justify this man’s message by condemning our country by saying, “God bless America? No, God Damn America?” Was this a forethought supporting your belief in Marxism?

    Are these the individuals who have inspired you to public office? Are these the individuals who have inspired you to plot against the United States? Are they the people for whom you’ve entrusted your Muslim faith?

    Please tell us why you mocked the Holy Bible and Jesus’ “Sermon on the Mount”, calling the sermon a radical message. You have mocked Christianity and this country. Barack Obama, you have betrayed this nation and all its’ people. Your skin is dark because of your race, but your soul is darker because of your deception.

    United States of America………………you didn’t build it Barack Obama.
