During today’s White House press briefing, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to comment on SportsCenter host Jemele Hill’s recent tweets about Donald Trump, in which she described the President and his policies as white supremacist. Hill was publicly reprimanded by ESPN for her tweets.
Here’s what Sanders had to say about Hill’s tweets:
I think that’s one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make, and certainly something that I think is a fireable offense by ESPN.
The only lesson to draw from this is that ESPN fucked themselves. If they had never allowed disingenuous squawking from clowns like Clay Travis and Britt McHenry to scare them into admonishing Hill, this issue would have never made its way into the White House press room. This mess is entirely a creation of ESPN’s own corporate cowardice.
