Radio host Clay Travis blasted a story from The Atlantic that centers on separating sports by sex. The article drew the ire of the “Clay & Buck” host Tuesday. 

“Separating Sports by Sex Doesn’t Make Sense” appeared in The Atlantic last weekend. 

Travis called the article one of the “dumbest stories he’d ever seen.” He added that it marked the natural evolution of the argument that men can compete against women. 

“The whole Lia Thomas madness where you had a dude who decided to become a woman and then became the greatest woman swimmer of the year in college athletics. Left-wingers are just going to say we need to have a unisex category,” he said.  

Travis stated writer Maggie Mertens trots out things that aren’t true. 

Mertens wrote that school sports are typically self-segregated, and decades of research has shown that sex is far more complex than we may think. Her reporting is based on a Bronx, New York girl named Shira Mandelzis who tries out for her school football team.

“This has become a big deal,” Travis observed. “Biology isn’t true to left-wingers anymore. Let me be clear here, there is no chick in America that is going to be faster than Usain Bolt. There is no one in the history of women’s athletics who is going to be as great a quarterback as Tom Brady.” 

Travis said tennis great Serena Williams is a prime example of why sports should be separated by sex. He said several professional tennis players told him that as great of talent as Williams was, she wouldn’t make it on many top-level NCAA Division 1 team. 

“Some of these quotes in this story are crazy,” he added.

There will be a new voice that listeners will hear on “The Ramsey Show” as the show’s host, Dave Ramsey, welcomes Jade Warshaw, who joins the program as a personality. 

“I’m excited to announce @JadeWarshaw as a BRAND NEW Ramsey Personality!” Ramsey said on Twitter Tuesday. 

“You will be seeing a lot more of her in the coming weeks. Tune into The Ramsey Show [Tuesday] to hear more about Jade and her story. Welcome to the crew, Jade!!”

Ramsey adding a new personality comes on the heels of the radio host telling stations they must know how to sell and to whom in an inflationary economy.

“Every budget that everybody that’s possibly going to buy an ad from any of us is getting tighter and tighter,” Ramsey said (h/t Inside Radio). “They’re looking for anything that is superfluous, anything that is extra, any fat, anything that’s not ROI-ing.”

Atlanta-based syndicated radio host Erick Erickson said Tuesday that the mainstream media is out to get Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Erickson also accused the media of grouping every Republican, including DeSantis, into the category of insurrectionist. 

“As a result, the mainstream media has decided to target every Republican and accuse them of being a January 6th style, election-denying candidate willing to upend democracy,” Erickson stated.

Erickson referenced a New York Magazine article written by Jonathan Chait questioning whether DeSantis is the future of Trumpism. 

“It doesn’t really work so well,” Erickson said about the article. “The public sees through this kind of stuff. The media essentially saw why the Republicans lost and now want to extrapolate that and apply it to every other Republican to help them lose.” 

Erickson said DeSantis is not taking the media’s bait and it’s working in his favor, unlike former President Donald Trump who continues to lash out on TRUTH Social which is what the mainstream media wants. 

“Trump is just an old man trying not to be forgotten,” Erickson said. 

“This is what is going to happen over the next two years,” he added. “Every time Trump has an outburst, reporters will rush to get every Republican on the record. DeSantis isn’t interviewing with these people so he can’t be put on the spot.” 

Erickson said DeSantis has cultivated a conservative news network around him and he’s not paying any attention to the left-leaning outlets that don’t provide favorable coverage of him.
