'I believe in the First Amendment and boobs'

'I believe in the First Amendment and boobs'

"My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light".

While discussing the network's decision not to fire or suspend "SC6" anchor Jemele Hill for calling President Donald Trump a "white supremacist," Travis, a vocal conservative and critic of ESPN, said the only things he believed in "completely" were "the First Amendment and boobs". "So those are the only two things I believe in absolutely in the country", Travis said. The other guy sputters and goes straight into offended pearl clutching mode. Travis responded saying, "You can't say you like the First Amendment and boobs?".

Here's my Periscope reacting to the CNN imbroglio. "Just went on @cnn and said I only believe in two things completely, the first amendment and boobs and the host lost it. Need video now", he tweeted. "I just want to make sure I heard you correctly and as a woman anchoring the show", Baldwin jumped in. "The first amendment and boobs".

It was not immediately clear why Travis was so keen to drop the level of conversation on cable news from its normal level of angry down to obnoxious.

Then addressing her audience, she said: "Forgive me, live television happens and you think you heard something, you are not sure and then you realize it happened, so I apologize for him on that".

"I'm not talking about that on television because it's irrelevant to the topic. I also love women". He also said that since ESPN fired Curt Schilling for a Facebook post supporting North Carolina's transgender bathroom ban, they also have to fire Hill for her social media behavior. "This is done. This is conversation over yanking my ... bye". Baldwin was right about that. It's a good lesson to take with you.

Baldwin later tweeted that she was still in disbelief over the segment, pointing out that this was never okay.
