Radio host Clay Travis said he believed in “the First Amendment and boobs” during a CNN segment, shocking the host and bringing the segment to an early end.

Travis, a frequent critic of ESPN, was on CNN to discuss the controversy surrounding ESPN anchor Jemele Hill calling President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter earlier this week.

“I’m a First Amendment absolutist and believe in two things completely — the First Amendment and boobs,” Travis said.

Anchor Brooke Baldwin asked Travis to clarify if he said the word “boobs” or “booze.”

“Boobs. Two things that never let me down: the First Amendment and boobs,” Travis said. “Those are the two things I believe in absolutely in the country.”

“I’m not talking about that on television because it’s irrelevant to the topic. It shouldn’t be brought up here,” former ESPN editor Keith Reed interjected. 

“Why not?” Travis asked.

Baldwin cut in to end the segment, saying she was shocked by Travis’s remark about “boobs.”

“I’m done. I’m sorry. I’m done,” Baldwin said. “This conversation is over.” 

The segment comes as the debate over Hill’s comments continued to get major play on cable news for a third consecutive day after the White House continued to slam ESPN for not reprimanding Hill more severely for referring to Trump as a white supremacist.  

Baldwin took to Twitter after to say that Travis’s comments are “never okay.” 

Travis said Baldwin “lost it” over his comments.
