GMA’s Sam Champion insists he ‘needs to stop it’ as Robin Roberts calls out ‘how his brain works’ in strange live moment

SAM Champion has insisted that he “needs to stop it” in a strange live moment.

His Good Morning America co-host, Robin Roberts, called out “how his brain works.”

On Wednesday morning, a GMA fan posted a clip of Sam and Robin from the show to Twitter.

They said that Sam had the “best laugh on TV.”

The meteorologist responded to them and said: “Baaahahhahah!! #weirdbrain#freeassociation. RR watching @ABC7 every Am …”

RR is referring to Sam’s husband, Rubem Robierb.

However, it is important to focus on what made Sam laugh so hard.

The clip started off with Robin saying: “I love how you put an end to doom. You could take a bad story, you know like someone taking that bus, and can find the good in it.”

“And you know, by saying, ‘we need better transportation to our airports.’”

Sam cracked up as Robin kept talking and making fun of him.

“I watch too much morning news,” he said, after he calmed down.

“Robin, you know it’s that old brain. I’m looking at this and going, ‘It’s a crime and it shouldn’t happen.’”

He continued: “And I am glad they arrested the young man. It’s a bad thing. But we do need better transportation to the airport. I don’t know how I think of it.”

Robin told Sam that it just “comes to your mind.”

“How your mind works is just-,” she said, as she shook her head with her eyes closed.

He cracked up again and put his hand between his chin and his chest and said: “I just need to stop it right here though. That’s the problem.”

After they both calmed down, Sam went on to report on the weather.


Due to the co-workers being such good friends, they make fun of each other all of the time.

Last month, Robin had a quick back-and-forth with Sam, as he warned she was “being judged.”

Robin kicked things off: “Sam, I never thought I’d say this. I am going to speak this morning to Dolly Parton and Dionne Warwick.”

“At the same time?!” an enthralled Sam replied.

“They are talking about their incredible new collaboration and you’ll see it here on GMA,” Robyn responded.

The pair gushed for a moment while Robin chuckled to herself as Sam, 61, declared he would be watching.

Robin shared: “I will always love you, Sam, and that’s what friends are for.”

“That’s like music royalty!” Sam replied, hardly believing his ears.

“It’s everything. Make sure you take pictures. I want a picture of that.”

“Well, it’s via Zoom, so…” Robin’s voice trailed off as the crowd booed, less excited to hear that Robin wouldn’t speak to the stars in person.

“They’re still gonna be live!” Robin said, laughing.

“Right, I know!” Sam replied. He then gestured to his left to staff off-screen.

He remarked: “I just want you to know that you were judged by that end of the room,” referring to Robin’s mention of the meeting taking place over Zoom.

Robin burst out laughing at her gaffe.

“But I like the Zoom, I’m still all for it, I think it qualifies as a great get.”

“Thank you! I appreciate that, Sam.”

“We’ll be watching,” Sam replied with a huge grin. “Because that’s what friends are for!”

The pair couldn’t contain their laughter at the awkward moment as they burst out chuckling at the joke Sam made.


Back in January, Robin shaded Sam’s “shaky” weather forecast.

The meteorologist returned to the show earlier that week from his Brazilian vacation.

He tried to use sports analogies to compare to the weather, but epically failed, and Robin let him know that.

“Hey Robin. This is the winter that we learned what atmospheric storms really were, more than a dozen hitting the west coast so far this season,” he said.

“And normally we get only two or three in a season. So, this has been weather chaos. It has been flooding. Getting the totals out of this has just been enormous.”

Sam continued: “Look at this. 240 inches of snow in Mountain Mammoth, California. Now, how do I relate that to people who don’t live there?”

The meteorologist joked: “So, you know me. I fall back on sports analogies, as I always do.”

Robin was heard groaning off-camera, and the crew started talking over each other as Sam made the analogy.

“If you took a basketball hoop, and you put two of them on top of each other-. Am I good, Robin? How am I doing right now?” he asked.

Robin groaned and said: “A little shaky.”

Sam continued: “-That still isn’t 240 inches of snow throughout that area.”

Robin shook her hand back and forth and laughed at his attempt.
