ESPN anchor blasts Trump as ‘white supremacist’

This woman is an anchor on ESPN. A lead commentator. Now that they've fired all the white men and non-far left goose-steppers this is what they are. How much longer before ESPN goes under?

Jemele Hill is the newest face of ESPN controversy.

The “SportsCenter” co-host went on a Twitter rant against President Trump that included calling him a “white supremacist” — forcing the network to issue a statement Tuesday denouncing the comments.

“Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime,” Hill tweeted Monday night.

“His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Period,” she said. “He is unqualified and unfit to be president. He is not a leader. And if he were not white, he never would have been elected.”


For a network that detractors believe leans liberal, especially through its on-screen personalities, Hill’s comments fit that narrative.

Her incendiary tweets were part of a nearly 15-minute rant, which she unleashed around 8 p.m.

“Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists,” she said at the start of her tirade.

“The height of white privilege is being able to ignore his white supremacy, because it’s of no threat to you,” Hill added. “Well, it’s a threat to me.”


The black 41-year-old — who co-hosts the 6 p.m. broadcast of SportsCenter, also known as “The Six” — wound up firing off more than a dozen tweets criticizing the president.

The diatribe began in response to a news story about singer Kid Rock, who is toying with a Senate run next year. The article accused the media of calling the Confederate flag-toting musician a racist, despite his previous claims that he “[loves] black people.”

Hill, an 11-year ESPN veteran, sarcastically denounced Kid Rock’s reasoning in several tweets, arguing he can’t use a flag that “unquestionably stands for dehumanizing black people” and call himself a racial sympathizer. Her criticism of him eventually turned into the angry comments about Trump.

“Donald Trump is a bigot. Glad you could live with voting for him. I couldn’t, because I cared about more than just myself,” Hill seethed.

“I hate a lot of things but not enough to jeopardize my fellow citizens with an unfit, bigoted, incompetent moron. But hey, that’s just me.”


Hill’s statements caused an uproar on social media, prompting ESPN to issue its statement Tuesday — distancing themselves from the sports anchor.

“The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN,” the network said. “We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.”

ESPN has been involved in plenty of politically correct controversies, including the removal of a college football announcer named Robert Lee.

The network flat-out admitted to moving the play-by-play man in an effort to avoid social media outrage.

Last April, former All-Star pitcher-turned-baseball analyst Curt Schilling was fired for sharing an insensitive Facebook post about the North Carolina transgender bathroom law.

“LET HIM IN! to the restroom with your daughter or else you’re a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving racist bigot who needs to die,” the post said.

It was accompanied by an image of an overweight man donning a wig and women’s clothing, along with a low-cut shirt exposing his breasts.

“A man is a man no matter what they call themselves,” Schilling wrote in the description. “I don’t care what they are, who they sleep with, men’s room was designed for the penis, women’s not so much. Now you need laws telling us differently? Pathetic.”

In response, ESPN issued a similar statement to the one they released for Hill — only this time, they chose to fire Schilling.

“ESPN is an inclusive company,” the network said. “Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his employment with ESPN has been terminated.”

Unlike Schilling, it appears that Hill will be allowed to keep her job — leading many to call ESPN out for what they believe is a massive double standard.

“ESPN, Curt Schilling is fired 4 questioning Transgender Bathrooms but nothing happens 2 Jemele Hill when she calls Trump a WhiteSupremacist?” wrote one upset Twitter user.

“Complete BS, You fired Curt Schilling for political opinions,” another said.

Pete Packowski added, “it’s a f–king disgrace that jemele hill is still employed by espn, while curt schilling lost his job.”

Why would they do that? It boosts their ratings and generates publicity. The networks care much more about generating money than they care about the opinions of their viewers.

Liberals are for free speech. Progressives want to limit speech they disagree with. Progressives are taking over the Democratic party.

Stay in your lane, goobers.
LeBatard talked about that today on the radio. I have no idea if this is right or not but it's just what he said.

LeBatard said Disney/ESPN suits don't want them (being the personalities) talking politics. Like at all. He said Schilling got canned because he wouldn't let it go after they told him to knock it off. He said he was sure the same shit would happen to her if she didn't after they will inevitably tell her to cut that dumb shit out.

Could be. Either way, it's a bad ****ing look for her and the network. If I were an exec, I'd hire some ****ing millenial to just read twitter for ****ing meltdowns like this and tell everyone that there are no warnings. Politics and you're fired.

No people are disgusted with them...and getting disgusted at such things in the NFL. It is hurting ESPN.

In some ways, we've become a surface society....no depth.
