CLAY TRAVIS (GUEST): Here's the reality. Tomi's right. It's not just race, though, it's also sexuality. Caitlin Clark is a white, heterosexual woman in a Black, lesbian league and they resent and are jealous of all of the attention and the shoe deal that she got. And instead of recognizing the truth, which is great athletes who people care about coming into your league really do make everybody more money and, hey, get you charter airplane flights instead of flying commercial -- remember when Tiger Woods came into golf? He took golf to an entirely different level, and even if he didn't win a tournament, every golfer in that tournament made a lot more money.

This doesn't really exist, Sean, in men's sports. They need an enforcer honestly, I think, to run around on the court and actually protect Caitlin Clark because they don't seem to be able to do it.

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Why do you say lesbian league? I mean, I don't know anything about the sexuality of any of the girls in the WNBA.

TRAVIS: 70% lesbian. And I think her having a boyfriend -- I think it's a fiancé, who by the way said there needs to be an enforcer -- creates two different identity politics universes that she doesn't fit in in this league. They don't like her because she's white and they don't like her because she's straight. And as a result, the league is coming undone around her even though she's bringing new fans.
