CLAY TRAVIS: I'm a First Amendment absolutist. I believe in only two things completely: the First Amendment and boobs. So once they made the decision --

BROOKE BALDWIN (HOST): Wait, did you just say you believe in the First Amendment and --


BALDWIN: Hold on, hold on, hold on. I just want to make sure I heard you correctly, as a woman anchoring this show. Did you just say -- what did you just say? You believe in the First Amendment and b-o-o-b-s?

TRAVIS: Boobs, two things that have only never let me down in this entire country's history, the First Amendment and boobs. So, those are the only two things I believe in absolutely in the country.


​BALDWIN: Okay. Okay. Keith? What are you thinking?

KEITH REED: Listen, I'm astonished at almost everything I just heard. One of the things -- Jemele [Hill is] a personal friend, not just a colleague but a personal friend. One of the things that Jemele has had to deal with her entire career, and many women who I am friends with in this business and have been friends with in this business for a long time, is sexism. Blatant sexism, comments about her appearance, comments about her racially, comments about her inability or perceived inability to be able to comment on sports because of her gender. So, for somebody to come on CNN and to say something like, “the only thing I believe in,” and the discussion --

​BALDWIN: I'm still there too, and I just want to make sure I'm hearing you correctly. ​B-o-o-z-e or b-o-o-b-s?

REED: It's astonishing.

BALDWIN: Because as a woman, I'm --

TRAVIS: I said boobs. I believe completely in the First Amendment and in boobs. Those are the only two things I believe 100 percent in in this country.


BALDWIN: Why would you even say that live on national television, and with a female host, why would you even go there?

TRAVIS: I say it live on the radio all of the time because it's true and that's what I do. Because I like boobs, and the First Amendment, which is exactly what I said.


BALDWIN: I'm done, I'm sorry. I'm done, this is done. This is conversation over, yanking mics, bye. See ya. That was entirely inappropriate, and it just took me -- forgive me, that it took me a second. It's like live television happens and you think you hear something, but you're not entirely sure, and then you realize it happened, so I apologize for him, and that. ​Let's move on.
