White House Suggests Jemele Hill Should Be Fired For Trump Comments

Hill has not apologized for her comments on Twitter nor has she deleted them.

Trump tweeted 7:20 a.m. Friday morning, September 15, that the network should "Apologize for untruth!" after bashing it for its politics and "bad programming". Rob King, senior vice president for news and information at Sports Center, said: "Yesterday was a hard and unusual day, with a number of people interpreting the day without a full picture that happened".

'I'm not sure if he's aware but I think that's one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make, ' the Trump spokeswoman replied.

The president was up early this morning to hammer away at ESPN in retaliation for being called a "white supremacist" by Jemele Hill, a co-host of the network's flagship "SportsCenter" program. All of which has led to an online firestorm, with many Trump supporters agreeing with what CNN calls the "highly unusual" White House move to appear to recommend that a Trump critic on a TV network be fired. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy, period.

"Well, it's a threat to me", she typed. She also called the president ignorant, inept and unqualified.

Even so, the hosts overcame Manchester United at De Kuip on Europa League duty last term and have W22-D2-L1 here since 2016/17. Feyenoord has won all the five matches that they recently played in Dutch Eredivisie.

"ESPN suspended a long-time anchor Linda Cohn, not too long ago for expressing a political viewpoint", she said Friday. "My respect for my company and my colleagues remains unconditional".

Hill sparked widespread outrage on social media Monday night after unleashing a 15-minute tweetstorm about President Trump being a "white supremacist".

David Clarke, former sheriff of Milwaukee County, joined "Fox & Friends" today to react to the controversy surrounding ESPN anchor Jemele Hill.

Conservatives have accused ESPN of a double standard when it comes to the inflammatory speech of its employees, pointing out that Ms. Hill was not formally disciplined for her remarks.

Citing "two sources familiar with the situation", Think Progress reported on Thursday that ESPN executives wanted to sideline Hill for Wednesday's show and reached out to other black hosts to fill her seat next to co-host Michael Smith.
