Wednesday during the White House press briefing, press secretary Sarah Sanders suggested ESPN to fire Jemele Hill, an anchor on the network’s “SportsCenter,” who called President Trump a white supremacist Monday. (VIDEO BELOW)
Hill was given a slap on the wrist from ESPN for calling President Trump a racist who is unfit to be president, and is enabled by white supremacy in a chain of tweets posted Monday night. (VIDEO BELOW)
During the briefing, a reporter read off some of the tweets and asked if Sarah had a reaction or if President Trump was aware of her comments. Sarah responded: (VIDEO BELOW)
“I’m not sure if he’s aware [of Hill’s comment] but I think that’s one of the more outrageous comments anyone could make and certainly something I think is a fireable offense by ESPN.
The reporter asked a second question adding “If the President was so clear as he said, why do you think that an influential Africa American figures are saying stuff/things like this? ” Sarah responded:
“I’m not going to speak for that individual, but I know that the president has met again with people like Sen. Scott who are highly respected leaders in the African American community. He is committed to working with them to bring the country together. I think that’s where we need to be focused, not on outrageous statements like that one.”
