You have to wonder how these radical thinkers who say outrageous things without any pushback can stay employed by news organizations. The more outrageous, the more they must like them. Jemele Hill was previously suspended by ESPN for making disparaging comments about President Trump. SHE SAID PRESIDENT TRUMP IS “UNFIT” TO BE PRESIDENT AND CALLED HIM A “WHITE SUPREMACIST”. She is one of many at ESPN who has chosen to politicize sports reporting…It’s a HUGE turnoff but do they even care?
Washington Free Beacon reports:
ESPN’s controversial host Jemele Hill said President Donald Trump’s reference to standing for the national anthem in his State of the Union address was a form of “racial pornography” to stoke his base.
Trump, who said last year that NFL players who fail to stand for the national anthem should be fired from their teams, said “we stand for the national anthem” Tuesday night during his address to Congress.
MSNBC host Al Sharpton asked Hill, who was among Trump’s numerous critics for his NFL stance, how she felt about Trump’s comments that he said “came out of nowhere.”
“I wasn’t surprised, and I think this is going to be probably a constant thing for the president, because it’s a very easy dog whistle, it’s low-hanging fruit,” she said. “It’s what I like to call racial pornography, because it’s a way to stoke his base. Look, in a weird way, I think it’s kind of weirdly brilliant because he has been able to hijack the entire conversation and to make this about patriotism.”
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON HILL:
ESPN host Jemele Hill called President Trump and Kid Rock ‘white supremacists’. It didn’t end there…she said in one of several tweets that Trump is ‘unfit’ to be president.
What did ESPN do? You guessed it…NOTHING! They tweeted out a mild apology and that’s it!
This is after Mike Ditka was fired for supporting President Trump and criticizing Obama. Kurt Schilling was also fired after posting a picture on social media against transgender bathrooms.
