What. Just. Happened???
In what may be the most unnecessary statement of the day, Fox Sports Radio host Clay Travis used a sexist joke in an attempt to decry the state of the nation and criticize ESPN.
Travis appeared on CNN on Friday to discuss a controversy surrounding the White House and ESPN personality Jemele Hill, who called Trump racist on Twitter earlier this week. The White House and many Trump supporters want her fired. ESPN later fired Hill but claim she was not fired for her tweets.
CNN host Brooke Baldwin asked Travis why the president decided to single out ESPN and Hill, when plenty of others have criticized him for his racist views. That’s when Travis explained his viewpoint on ESPN’s political policy. Then he mentioned boobs?
Baldwin was shocked. She stopped Clay to clarify that he indeed said boobs and not booze. Baldwin asked…
“Wait, did you just say you believe in the first amendment and — hold on, I just want to make sure I heard you correctly as a woman anchoring the show, what did you just say?”
“You believe in the first amendment and b-double-o-b-s?”
Watch the video…
Baldwin later tweeted:
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
