CNN host Brooke Baldwin was nearly in tears a couple months ago when a guest repeatedly said he liked “boobs” while on her show.
But during last night’s New Years Eve coverage, she didn’t have a problem bringing up “balls” during the inane banter with fellow host Don Lemon.
After thanking the New Orleans venue for hosting the “news” network, Baldwin told Lemon, “By the way, my balls are bigger than your balls.”
“Probably,” Lemon responded.
“Are they drunk?” Anderson Cooper asked under his breath.
Back in September, Fox Sports radio host Clay Travis said, “I believe in only two things completely: the first amendment and boobs.”
Baldwin laughed and said, “Did you just say, you believe in the first amendment and…?”
“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-o-o-b-s?’” she said.
When Travis doubled down on his love of boobs, Baldwin was outraged.
“When would you sit here live on CNN and…” she said, unable to finish her statement.
She asked him why “with a female host” why he would “go there”.
After declaring the conversation “over,” Baldwin said the talk was “entirely inappropriate.”
