CNN Adds “Boobs” to List of Things You Can’t Say
CNN host Brooke Baldwin has added the word “boobs” to the ever-expanding list of trigger words that just aren’t ever acceptable to use in public anymore. During an interview with a sports talk show host on Friday, Baldwin was so shocked to hear the word that she shut down the interview.
Clay Travis, who works for Fox Sports Radio, appeared on a segment about free speech. Ironically, he was shut down by Baldwin for exercising just that. Brooke had two options when she heard the shocking word “boobs” – to laugh or be offended. She chose the latter.
OMG! Did he really say that?!
When referring to the recent incident involving a ESPN anchor calling President Trump a “white supremacist” – which CNN seems comfortable with – Baldwin acted like “boob” was one of George Carlin’s ‘7 Dirty Words You Can’t Say on Television.’
Travis’s quote that set Brooke aghast was:
I believe in the First Amendment and boobs.
Who knows exactly what that means, but Baldwin’s reaction of feigned outrage was so over-the-top as to be laughable. She recalled her reaction this way:
I quickly felt myself turning red — getting irritated and angry. My mind was racing. My face, I could tell, was incredulous. It is 2017, and this grown man is on my show talking with me — a female host — about boobs. Is this seriously happening?
Submitted for Brooke’s approval, we offer the following alternate terms for “boobs” that she might be more comfortable with; hooters, jugs, headlights, rack, ta-tas, the girls, chesticles, double lattes, Smothers Brothers, twin peaks, party pillows, sweater stretchers, weapons of mass distraction, or milkshakes.
Hopefully, there is something in that list that Brooke can use as a substitute for that horrible and offensive word “boobs.” And pray that she doesn’t lose her sanity completely, should one of her guests ever utter the word “pecker!”
