MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts didn’t try to hide his delight over the Supreme Court ruling Monday striking down a law requiring abortion clinics to meet the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers, using part of his interview with Wendy Davis to gush over her famed pink sneakers.

Davis became a progressive and national media darling in 2013, when she filibustered for 11 hours to try to stop that same law while donning pink shoes. The press went wild for her maneuver, especially for her footwear.

“You ran for governor after the filibuster that, as I said, it skyrocketed you because of those pink sneakers,” Roberts said. “I’m not sure if you’ve put those in any type of Hall of Fame in Texas, or if they’re still somewhere in your closet, but does this make you want to get back into Texas politics again?”
