    Yeah. It's long been established that no one wants to talk about anyone unless they're currently the president.

    I don't understand Travis's shtick. It's like he's got one side of him who wants to be the intellectual sports libertarian, and then the frat boy bro talking about how hot his wife is, how big his tv is and all the famous people he knows.

    You're not the president therefore I have no interest in talking about you, whomever you are. [/ironic post]

    You're so fuckin' wrong there.
    Even you would call him a looser at that point.

    What was so odd about that segment is that Travis kept repeating his infantile joke that wasn't funny without smiling or anything. Just acting dead serious.

    To me, he just came off as a weird fetishist and not a prankster at all. If he had tried to turn it into more of a schtick by saying -- oh, this is CNN, I meant breasts -- or something, it would have seemed like he was at least trying for a laugh instead of just being creepy.

    It's a helluva thing to be constantly trying to read the terrain to figure out how to be relevant. You start stepping on your dick a lot when you're always trying to be winning. He tries to work too many corners.

    Clay Travis was who he was long before Donald Trump thought of running for anything except to be the lead item on Page Six.

    The other thing - and this doesn't just apply to Travis, probably works for Kaepernick, Milo and maybe Jemele and others as well - someone is a a knucklehead/random person who pops off 90 pct of the time and then one time they say or do something politically or socially relevant and they are suddenly vaulted into "great speaker of wisdom and truth" by people who have no idea who they are.

    This is the porn the left has created.

    Butch Jones made Clay forget about Jemele Hill for awhile.
