ESPN fired both Mike Ditka and Curt Schilling after they expressed their support of Donald Trump politically, now, they take no action against one of their own hosts who attacks the president.
Jemele Hill of “SportsCenter” tweeted that “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”
He has surrounded himself with white supremacists — no they are not “alt right” — and you want me to believe he isn’t a white supremacist?
She called him “unqualified and unfit” to be president, adding that if he were not a Caucasian man, he would still be in New York and not the White House.
Hill also responded to a Trump voter on Twitter, telling them she was “glad” they could “live with voting for him.”
ESPN’s public relations later tweeted a statement, saying that Hill’s comments do not represent the position of the Bristol, Conn. network.
Carlson called ESPN “Endless Stupid Political Nagging” and asked Fox Sports’ Clay Travis what he thought of Hill’s attack.
Travis said ESPN’s statement is another example of Hill’s politics “going all the way to the top.”
He said parent company Disney CEO Bob Iger and ESPN president John Skipper hold left-wing views, and that of the 59 people Iger follows on Twitter, Hill is one of them.
“They want left-leaning politics the forward facing front of ESPN,” going on to repeat Michael Jordan’s famed warning about mixing sports and politics, “Republicans buy sneakers too.”
