Clay Travis is doing the show from Washington, DC after having spent the day in the West Wing of the White House. After realizing that the majority of people working in the West Wing wanted to talk about all of the latest sports stories rather than politics, it made Clay realize he misses the days of Michael Jordan.
Back when MJ was THE preeminent athlete, he made a point to not share his aggressive political opinion. Jordan was famously credited with the quote "Republicans buy sneakers too." Clay thinks that athletes using their platform to take a stand on every political issue has taken away the escapism from sports.
