CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin was leading a discussion Friday afternoon over the ongoing controversy surrounding ESPN opting not to fire SportsCenterhost Jemele Hill for calling Donald Trump a “bigot” and “white supremacist” in a Twitter rant earlier this week. She was speaking with former ESPN senior editor and close friend of Hill’s, Keith Reed, and Clay Travis of Fox Sports when the latter made a shockingly inappropriate comment.

“That had absolutely nothing to do with sports, and they said, look, you can’t have this opinion, it’s too conservative, we’re not going to allow it,” Travis reasoned. He continued, and this is where things veered off course: “I think that’s a bad move, I’m a First Amendment absolutist, I believe in only two things completely: the First Amendment and boobs.”

It was clear by Reed and Baldwin’s faces that they couldn’t believe what they had just heard. “Wait, did you just say you believe in the First Amendment, and … Hold on, hold on,” she said. “I just want to make sure I heard you correctly as a woman anchoring this show. What did you just say? You believe in the First Amendment and “B-double-O-B-S?”
