CLAY TRAVIS (GUEST): I think this is a massive issue for the United States Women's Olympics gymnastics team that she's decided to quit in the middle of competition. We've never seen this happen. I don't think it's heroic. I don't think that she should be praised for it and, in fact, I think -- I feel bad for her teammates and the alternates that would have been able to step up and potentially take that spot.

If she didn't want it, she could have not started the competition. I think quitting during the middle of the competition is the foundational effort level that we expect from all of our Olympic athletes. We want them to give their all and she didn't. And I think her team is at the -- the less for it.
