Clay Travis: “Well, so much for this, Drew Brees has now apologized. This is the problem with everything in America. We say we want ‘honest’ conversations, but when someone gives an honest statement, then they get criticized, and then they apology. It’s become a bad cliché… Here is the deal: say what YOU believe, and if some people disagree with what you believe in, then so what? Everyone agreeing on everything is not real, and also what should not happen in a democracy. When you apologize for honest comments that you make that offend people, what you end up doing is leaving NO ONE respecting you. I tell you what I think every day. If you disagree, more power to you, and you can do whatever you like to disagree with my comments every single day, but I’m never going to apologize for what I believe, PERIOD.” (Full Audio Above)
Listen to Clay Travis explain why he doesn’t believe Drew Brees should have apologized for comments he made during an interview with Yahoo Finance earlier this week, in which he spoke on how much the National Anthem means to him on Sundays, and why he doesn’t agree with people ‘disrespecting the flag.’
Check out the audio above as Clay details why it’s unrealistic to have 100% of people agree with you on any one topic, and says you shouldn’t have to apologize for comments that you truly believe in just because there was a portion of the population who disagreed.
