Pat McAfee insists that he’s been canceled by ‘both parties’
Pat McAfee, while appearing on his ESPN show he’s receiving $85 million to host, claimed hes canceled.
And he said this on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
In the latest example of McAfee bringing criticism to his show and this one somehow did not involve any conspiracy theories from Aaron Rodgers the host of the self-titled The Pat McAfee Show went on a bizarre rant Monday that was met with head-scratching by some in the media.
Heres the full transcript of McAfees remarks:
Obviously, it is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. He had a dream. And I think LANK was one of the closest weve had to potentially that dream coming to fruition. So, lets realize that as we look around that were maybe more close than weve ever been.
“And theres an election about to take place next sic year where we need to remember that we are more close than we have ever been, and people could potentially try to drive us apart from the outside looking in.
Now, as somebody who was canceled by both parties last week, both of them canceled me. Two political parties canceled me last week and we are still alive. Lets remember we dont need all the outside noise. All we need is a little bit of love. Which is what we have for all of the people who have good intentions every single day whenever they wake up, just like us. Now, with that being said, football is awesome.”

— Awful Announcing (@awfulannouncing) January 15, 2024Its an impressive feat to somehow weave a narrative connecting yourself to Martin Luther King Jr., but McAfee managed to somehow do just that.
As least publicly, McAfee has received no discipline from ESPN for allowing Rodgers to imply that ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel would be on the associates list of convicted late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, giving Rodgers the platform to go on another one of his unfiltered Covid rants and calling top ESPN executive Norby Williamson a rat.
McAfee did receive public backlash for those events, but claiming hes canceled while hes still doing his daily show is rather brazen.
