An emotionally charged Dan Le Batard wasted little time ramping up his post-ESPN life with a barrage of surface-to-missile quote bombs on OutKick’s Clay Travis and Dixie Vodka during a profanity-laced opening monologue on Thursday’s ‘Local Hour’ podcast. Le Batard’s run at ESPN ended Monday and now the gloves appear to be off.
No more Disney overlords keeping track of Dan’s every move. He wants Clay’s ass, and he wants it now. It took Dan all of 1 minute and 55 seconds into today’s Capitol insurrection show to utter Clay’s name and show off his vocabulary.
“For all of you who fear, ‘Oh they’re losing their ESPN stuff. They’re losing their smart people. ESPN’s going to block them from having access to the Minas (Kimes) and stuff,’ we’re going to bring you nonstop smart people we love to talk about stuff that is difficult as America changes in front your eyes and as you see freedom threatened.
“Finally, finally scared the Republicans shitless enough to actually lead, to take off their masks because of the Frankenstein monsters they created, reaching into the morgue to make all of these parts, and now it turned on them and you saw what happened yesterday.
“Finally our country’s leadership united against the monster because they were scared shitless of chickens coming home to roost. This is what was wrought. This is what was going to get here because of everything you saw happening over the last 12 months to us and elsewhere because I’ve got something for that shitstain Clay Travis who wants to sit it out now when he was having Trump on his infomercial podcast, Dixie Vodka cheap shit, just getting Trump to foment this base and then walks away and say, ‘Hey I never said anything about violence.’
“Nah man, nah, you guys did in all your code.”
Whew. Dan’s mad. It sounds like Dan’s about to cry, he’s so angry. It’s January 7, and it’s already clear that Dan vs. Clay will be the media war of the year. This will be the big boy battle you guys have been waiting for.
I’m just over here wondering why Dan had to take a shot at Dixie Vodka? It gets an A- on DrinkHacker.com. “Classic and modern, there’s not a trace of the south in the glass here, just a gentle sweetness and the lightest hint of cornmeal and heavy cream. The palate is silky and mild, with a clean, unassuming finish. Very versatile and unassuming,” Drink Hacker states.
Not cool, Dan.
I voted for Trump. He lost. Well past time to move on. Violence is never the answer, no matter your politics. Will discuss on @outkick live in a half hour.
