Sports and political commentator Clay Travis spoke to Tucker Carlson about the cast of the coveted time slot of the late broadcast icon Rush Limbaugh.
Travis, along with former CIA officer and syndicated Conservative radio host Buck Sexton, was announced to host “The Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show” on weekdays from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM EST.
Travis joined the Fox News host to discuss the move, and said he sometimes has no nerve because he doesn’t see the duo as replacements.
“We are not a substitute for Rush Limbaugh,” he told Carlson. “Because nobody can replace a legend.”
“But what you can do is keep fighting,” added Travis. “You know this because you do it every night. So much madness is going on in this country right now. “
Big news: I’ll be joining @BuckSexton in Rush Limbaugh’s 12-3 et radio time slot starting June 21st. I can’t wait to get started. Tomorrow is my last day of @outkick AM sports radio. So I decided: https://t.co/YlXz0pXk7x

“I am delighted to be able to take up the sword and strike back against all the ignoramuses and Nincompoops every day,” he told Carlson.
He added that he “wants to be able to stand up for … a large number of people out there who worry every time they’re on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram and want to share their opinion and then think is is worth it ”
“I think we will certainly speak for a lot of people who feel they can’t speak,” said Travis.
Sexton also tweeted the big announcement: “We’re going to do a show that makes Rush listeners proud and brings a new generation of audience to the table.”

Like Limbaugh, Travis has a history of comments who find non-Snowflakes humorous, but in the end he draws him into unwarranted controversy.
In September 2017, CNN’s Brooke Baldwin almost gave a coronary joke of his most ardent beliefs in a phrase he used frequently on his sports talk radio show.
“I’m an amendment absolutist,” Travis said of freedom of expression. “The only two things I believe in 100 percent are the First Amendment and breasts.”
More recently, he’s been effectively shredding people who ignore CDC guidelines on masks as the COVID pandemic and panic subside and society returns to normal.
“I have something to tell you,” Travis said last month. “If you haven’t gone outside or wearing masks and waiting for the CDC to give you the OK to take your masks off, you are such a sheep, you disgust me. You are pathetic. “
He also attacked those we saw all wearing masks in their cars.
“If you drive around in your car alone and wear a mask, you are a total loser,” he said.
. @ ClayTravis: Masks have “become a security blanket for many left wing”.
“You have to wear the mask because it gives you an identity. It’s a safety bucket for their life and it’s absolutely ridiculous and absurd. ”Pic.twitter.com/IKLnW25aFR

Travis and Sexton have the opportunity to produce something very special with their new show, as long as they do what the former says and don’t try to “replace a legend”.
Limbaugh, the conservative icon, radio legend and conscience of the Republican Party, died in February at the age of 70 of stage IV lung cancer.
“El Rushbo” began his DJ career in Pennsylvania after dropping out of Southeast Missouri State University. He was to become the leading voice of the Conservative movement in America after he was rightly inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame and the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
He learned to be diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in January 2020 and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Donald Trump in the State of the Union Address days later.
