Clay Travis '1st Amendment and boobs' comments end CNN segment

Eventually, Baldwin had had enough, cutting in to announce that Travis' appearance was over.

You can see the exchange in the video below. "What did you just say?"

"I said boobs. I believe completely in the First Amendment and in boobs".

What this has to do with the female anatomy is anyone's guess, but Travis felt the need to say, "I'm a First Amendment absolutist, I believe in only two things completely, the First Amendment and boobs".

Reed and Travis went back and forth while a confused Baldwin attempted to make sure Travis was saying "boobs" and not "booze".

Sanders doubled down at a Friday press briefing, saying, "ESPN has been hypocritical, they should hold anchors to a fair and consistent standard". But the segment was quickly sidetracked when Travis first noted his "belief" in "boobs" and the First Amendment.

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". This came out of nowhere, unnerving Baldwin and prompting her to end the segment early.

Keith Reed's and Baldwin's faces really say it all, don't they?

"I say it live on the radio all the time because it's true and that's what I do", Travis said.

It took a beat, but host Brooke Baldwin wanted Travis to clarify what he had just said, asking him specifically if he actually sad "boobs". "Because I like boobs and the First Amendment, which is exactly what I said".

"ESPN shouldn't be in the business of deciding what political opinions are appropriate and inappropriate, but when they fired Curt Schilling entirely for his political opinions almost a year and a half ago they put themselves in the business of analyzing employee speech and determining what was permissible and what was impermissible", he argued.

"I just want to make sure I'm hearing you correctly", she said again: "B-O-O-Z-E or B-O-O-B-S?"
