Josh Barro

Former MSNBC pundit and current radio host and NY Post columnist is mentioned in old MSNBC threads but as a datalounge favorite, I thought he deserves his own thread.

He's almost a regular Ari Shapiro with his foodie and travel posts, but I've got more in common Josh-he seems more down to earth.

Any idea on his height? Do we like his beard or prefer him beardless?

I think he still does show up on MSNBC now and then. Josh looks great with or without a beard.

Who’s the top in their relationship?

by Anonymousreply 205/14/2020

Is he Italian?

by Anonymousreply 305/14/2020

Social media is fake and stupid. Who needs to know every thought you ever had. Every interaction. Every move, documented and “shared.”


by Anonymousreply 405/14/2020

R3 He's pretty hairy and does look Italian. He's an atheist but has mentioned some Jewish heritage. Maybe an Italian/Jewish Mix.

R1 I like the beard, but it looks somewhat spotty on the sides. Is he chest hairy or is he only moderately hairy?

by Anonymousreply 505/14/2020

His husband has big dick face R2, but I'm guessing Josh is the top as he is pretty dominant in interviews and his writing. Josh swaggers but I'm guessing a smaller cock size, probably cut.

by Anonymousreply 605/14/2020

The beard is irrelevant.

His husband is definitely more of a little spoon.

R6 I don't know, it looks like he's packing heat here and rocking a hairy chest.

R9 Banana Republic head to toe? Love that preppy look. Was he a prep school lad? Phillips Andover? Phillips Exeter?

by Anonymousreply 1005/14/2020

Unflattering OP pic (of both of them). But his husband is not hot enough for him.

by Anonymousreply 1105/14/2020

He used to be fat and he actually looked alright as a fatty. But he is so much hotter as a fit guy. And he's not a Bernie Bro. I'd do him.

by Anonymousreply 1205/14/2020

He's okay, except he needs to understand the fundamental issue of our time: too many rich assholes controlling too many governments.

other than that, I really don't dislike him.

But he really needs to get that.

by Anonymousreply 1305/14/2020

also, every conservative needs to be thrown out of every political office. other than that, no problem with conservatives like Josh Barro.

by Anonymousreply 1405/14/2020

Agree, R11. He is a lot hotter than the husband. Also believe Josh is the top.

by Anonymousreply 1505/14/2020

How come Barro is not on MSNBC more often? It was never a lot, but it was periodic. Now it's rare.

He used to be a Republican/conservative but isn't anymore because he's gay and not a lunatic.

I still give pundits like him the side eye--its great that they're not in the Trump camp, but what are their thoughts on say, privatizing the post office or social security?

by Anonymousreply 1705/14/2020

not sure he quite gets it though r17. he's not nuts and he doesn't love Trump, but does he get what complete shit the entire Conservative Movement has been for about 50 years?

by Anonymousreply 1805/14/2020

Does he look like that gay reporter who was covering the murderous Canadian twinks? Do all gay reporters look alike?

by Anonymousreply 1905/14/2020

Can't believe no one has mentioned his father- the famous (or infamous) Robert Barro who was a prominent figure in shifting academic economic theory away from the post-war Keynesian consensus and writes really obnoxious editorials in the WSJ denouncing the very idea of using federal fiscal policy to offset downturns in the business cycle (he was particularly nasty towards Obama in 2008-2009). He was also one of the first academic economists to make a fortune in the private sector in consulting, which is now commonplace but at the time was very controversial. Josh is the youngest of 4 kids and worked in investment banking for a few years before transitioning to journalism. He was once a vocal defender of his fathers economic views but has moved slightly to center/center-left over the last few years. I think Trump finally made him officially change his voter registration to democrat in 2016 and he has been a fierce critic ever since...

by Anonymousreply 2005/14/2020

he has terrible breath, that's all I'm going to say

by Anonymousreply 2105/14/2020

He used to be pretty horrible and then came to see the light that Republicans and even Libertarians are evil.

He’s better now but every once in a while his selfish privileged side comes out and has a really wrong take on something. It’s like, “oh, yeah, I forgot you were a dick. Thanks for reminding me”

I follow him on Twitter and have mutual friends.

by Anonymousreply 2205/14/2020

R21 you can tell just from his photos.

by Anonymousreply 2305/14/2020

what r17 said. you can take the log cabinette out of the GOP...

by Anonymousreply 2405/14/2020

R21 Do you think that's from a lo-carb diet? Ketosis?

R20 Do you think he's wealthy from his parents and also possibly his first investment banking job?

by Anonymousreply 2505/14/2020

Is his coming out story published? It's probably easiest to come out as the youngest sibling.

by Anonymousreply 2605/14/2020

This is a dick pic I wouldn’t mind seeing

by Anonymousreply 2705/14/2020

It's not keto breath, R25. It's shit breath.

by Anonymousreply 2805/14/2020

R28 - 😂

by Anonymousreply 2905/14/2020

R28 Are you implying he’s into scat or you know something?

by Anonymousreply 3005/14/2020

No, I’m saying the man’s breath smells like straight up feces. I don’t know the reason why.

by Anonymousreply 3105/14/2020

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ As Bill Maher would say in one of his comedic bits; “I don’t know why, I just know it’s true...

by Anonymousreply 3205/14/2020

Would you consider him to have a dad bod? Or more muscle bear?

by Anonymousreply 3305/18/2020

R33 dad bod. but in a very sexy way

by Anonymousreply 3405/18/2020

He has a photo of his boyfriends thick looking ass on instagram. Subtle way to let everyone know he is the top.

He seems like a robot.

by Anonymousreply 3605/18/2020

R35 Husband, not boyfriend. But, yeah. It's nice

by Anonymousreply 3705/18/2020

He definitely seems to have disappeared from MSNBC entirely (even before COVID). For quite awhile, he was a pundit on numerous shows and they even had him guest hosting a few times as a fill in for one of the absent political anchors. I wonder if there's a contractual conflict that now prevents him from appearing or if he has fallen out of favor with the network brass?

by Anonymousreply 3805/18/2020

R38 Maybe his shit breath became a hazard.

by Anonymousreply 3905/18/2020

r38 Didn't he get a promotion at Business Insiders from a columnist to an editor? They may prohibit moonlighting on cable TV but political writers often appear on MSNBC, FOX, etc. to promote their print work so who knows. You would think he would be in demand as never trumpers like Bill Kristol, Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson, etc. are on panels all the time - moderate republicans are an endangered species. Hell they even have Nicole Wallace a show and she and Schmidt were responsible for unleashing proto-trump Palin on us. Kristol may come across as affable and amiable now but he still is a war mongering prick...I don't think Josh is a republican anymore and he never was really all that conservative so I don't know where he fits in our current political firmament - he isn't a corporate hack like the Third Way types and he definitely isn't a wannabee socialist like the Berners.

by Anonymousreply 4005/22/2020

I find him fuckable. And I think he is smart, too.

I'm cuter than that fuggo husband of his. I may need to do some homewrecking.

by Anonymousreply 4105/22/2020

He is a contrarian.

But even they have their limits under this admin.

by Anonymousreply 4205/22/2020

[quote] more down to earth.

Are you sure it's Josh Barro you're talking about? He's written articles on why "elites are elite for a reason." He is extremely pleased with himself. It doesn't bother me overmuch because he actually does have some good commentary but modest he is not
