Clay Travis of Fox Sports and Outkick the Coverage said he believed in only “the First Amendment and boobs,” baffling CNN’s Brooke Baldwin.
Clay Travis of Fox Sports and Outkick the Coverage left CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin stunned on Friday by making an off-color 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 believed in “completely” were “the First Amendment and boobs.”
Baldwin looked stunned and eventually cut Travis off.

As Travis tried to continue his point, Baldwin kept returning to the comment, trying to clarify whether Travis had 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 criticized Travis for the remark, saying: “Why would you even say that live on national television and with a female host? Why would you even go there?”
Afterward, Travis seemed proud of the incident:
Baldwin, however, still seemed baffled:
