ESPN's Jemele Hill Gets Off Light After Nasty Race-Laden Anti-Trump Tweets

Sanders said that she's unsure if Trump has received word on the comments however, she thinks the comments are worthy of getting Hill sacked.

Scott is a Republican from SC.

Note that Sanders admitted that she was unsure whether Trump is aware of the situation or whether he, her employer, has an opinion on it. "I think that's where we need to be focused, not on outrageous statements like that one".

After Hill took to Twitter with the statement, ESPN told CNN Money they "accept her apology", but also blamed her for "implying" she was speaking for the network with the "white supremacist" tweet.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has tweeted his support for ESPN anchor Jemele Hill after she called Donald Trump a "white supremacist".

Sanders' statement that she wasn't sure if Trump was aware was a joke, because Trump close monitors the daily briefing, and goes as far as passing notes to the press secretary on what to say.

Strong words, but it's hard to argue that Trump, the president literally endorsed by the KKK, is not spreading white supremacy.

The hurricane was responsible for at least 26 deaths, including 10 in Cuba , as it passed through Caribbean island nations. At last check, Florida Keys residents were not being allowed to return to the area until county officials deemed it safe.

Cable sports network ESPN has denounced comments made by anchor Jemele Hill after she called President Donald Trump "a white supremacist" and a "bigot".

Hill has not returned a message from The News requesting comment.

As for Kaepernick's tweet to Hill, Jones said he doesn't think it will help his odds of getting signed by an National Football League team.

A quick look at Hill's Twitter feed shows her own racist, anti-white people tendencies, filled exclusively with photos of African Americans, only showing white people in a bad light through goofy and awkward memes.

ESPN condemned her tweet, calling it "inappropriate" and noted that it did not "represent the position of ESPN". "He loves black people so much that he pandered to racists by using a flag that unquestionably stands for dehumanizing black people", tweeted Hill along with the article which sparked responses and soon a Twitter conversation on politics.

It is unclear whether ESPN will discipline Hill for her comments. The violence erupted at a rally to protest the decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.
