Clay Travis Comments End CNN Segment 'First Amendment and Boobs'

In a discussion about the network's decision to keep SC6 anchor Jemele Hill after she called President Donald Trump a'white supremacist Fox Sports Radio host Clay Travis said he believed'in only two things completely the First Amendment and boobs

Chris Kleponis/CNP/Sipa USA/NewscomClay Travis, a sports radio host known for his incendiary right-wing views, believes in only two things, "the First Amendment and boobs".

"That had absolutely nothing to do with sports, and they said, look, you can't have this opinion, it's too conservative, we're not going to allow it", Travis reasoned.

While Travis didn't want Hill to be fired because he "believes in the first amendment", he didn't like the way ESPN worded their statement.

Travis tries to keep making his point, but he incidentally made a far more important point with what he expected would be a throwaway, jokey line about "the First Amendment and boobs".

Travis was also criticized by former ESPN editor Keith Reed who was also part of the segment.

In speaking about the free speech issues involved during Friday afternoon broadcast anchored by Brooke Baldwin, Travis rather grandly announced he believes "in only two things: the First Amendment and boobs".

"Why would you even say that, live on national television, and with a female host?"

Both Baldwin and ESPN's Keith Reed were stunned with the former cutting Travis off and asking him to repeat himself

CNN have Brooke Baldwin addressed Travis on what the last word was supposing he signified "liquor" or something unique, and over and over requested an illumination before closure the section early and apologizing for Travis' remarks.

"I'm done. I'm sorry, I'm done", Baldwin said. "This is done. This is conversation over, yanking mics". "What did you just say?"

You read that right, the First Amendment and boobs. Ostensibly, those were the topics Baldwin meant to discuss during her show - but Travis had other designs.

CNN is so offended by my comments that they already asked me to come back on Monday.

"One of the things that Jemele's had to deal with her entire career", he said, "is sexism, blatant sexism, comments about her appearance, comments about her racially, comments about her inability - or perceived inability - to be able to comment on sports because of her gender".

Travis' comments were widely condemned while special praise was reserved for Baldwin, who didn't let Travis get away with the "joke".
