CNN Commentator Clay Travis: '1st Amendment and Boobs' Never Let Me Down

Screengrab

Sports blogger Clay Travis was brought on CNN on Friday afternoon to discuss ESPN's handling of an anchor's criticism of President Donald Trump, but the segment quickly devolved into a debate over sexism regarding Travis' comments.

"Boobs, two things that never let me down, the first amendment and boobs", Travis said. Yes, boobs. On national television.

Baldwin threw to her other talking head, ESPN's Keith Reed, who had the good sense to say right off the bat, "I'm astonished at nearly everything I just heard".

"I just want to make sure I heard you correctly as a woman anchoring this show", she said.

You read that right, the First Amendment and boobs.

Though his counterparts were visibly upset, Travis shamelessly stood by his remarks.

Travis tweeted about the segment multiple times, including a video explaining that it is a line he has used many times before and expressing confusion over the controversy and mocking Baldwin for being bothered by the comment.

"Boobs", Travis confirmed. "Two things that have only never let me down in this entire country's history".

He told Engel his company has had "zero contact with the offensive agencies in Russian intelligence". The retail giant Best Buy has said it would stop selling the company's software.

"I said boobs. I believe completely in the 1st Amendment and boobs", he said, raising his count to five.

You'll notice that nowhere in that rundown of the past week's events was there mention of the word "boobs" or anything remotely to do with "boobs" - aside from completely irrelevant anatomical facts about key players in the story. "This is conversation over; yanking mics. Bye".

Later in a tweet, Baldwin reiterated her disapproval.

That was. I just.it was one of those thought bubbles "did he actually say that on MY SHOW?!"

She added, "That was entirely inappropriate".

Travis has sharply criticized ESPN in recent days for what he perceives as taking a "leftist" slant, and he continued to take shots at the network during his CNN appearance. Because it is time to tell the truth about the "boob tube"?

Of course, Clay Travis got exactly what he wanted: attention.
