Clay Travis of Fox Sports and Outkick the Coverage left CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin stunned on Friday by making an off-colour remark during a segment about ESPN’s political controversy.
While discussing the network’s decision not to fire or suspend “SC6” anchor Jemele Hill for calling President Donald Trump a “white supremacist,” Travis, a vocal conservative and critic of ESPN, said the only things he believes in are the First Amendment and “boobs.”
“I believe in only two things completely,” Travis said. “The First Amendment and boobs.”
Baldwin looked stunned and eventually cut Travis off.
“I just want to make sure I heard you correctly as a woman anchoring this show. What did you just say, you believe in the First Amendment and b-double-o-b-s?” she said.
Travis responded, “Boobs. Two things that have only never let me down in this entire country’s history. The First Amendment and boobs.”
As Travis tried to continue his point, Baldwin kept returning to comment, trying to clarify if Travis said “booze” or “boobs.”
“I said boobs,” he said in response. “I believe completely in the First Amendment and in boobs. Those are the only two things I believe 100% in this country.”
Baldwin then criticised Travis for the remark, saying, “Why would you even say this live on national television and with a female host? Why would you even go there.”
Afterward, Travis seemed proud of the incident.
Just went on @cnn and said I only believe in two things completely, the first amendment and boobs and the host lost it. Need video now.

Baldwin, however, still seemed baffled.
That was… I just… it was one of those thought bubbles "did he actually say that on MY SHOW?!" Note to men — that is never okay. #smh
