ESPN Gives Jemele Hill Wrist Slap After Calling President Donald Trump a ‘White Supremacist’

Written by  Warner Todd Huston

ESPN host Jemele Hill took to Twitter Monday evening, and called President Trump a “white supremacist.” On Tuesday, the cable sports network responded with the equivalent of slap on the wrist, for the SportsCenter host’s comment.

On September 12, ESPN released a statement revealing that Hill will not be punished for her statement.

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

This light slap on the wrist came after Hill’s September 11 tweet attacking the president. “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.” She tweeted:

Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.

Hill’s tweet is a serious charge. Indeed, ESPN and other sports networks have fired conservative employees for political speech. Mike Ditka, Curt Schilling, Craig James, and other conservative employees were almost instantly fired for far less inflammatory statements.

Yet, ESPN seems to have given Hill a pass on her behavior.

Curt Schilling is white, male & Conservative. This POS is black, female & a Leftist. This is why you should not be watching anything on this anti American network.

Why should Hill be punished to stating the truth?

@Brannon. You just proved what an imbecile you and your ilk really are. You can't even come up with a rebuttal to my statement. You simply revert to your kindergarten language by calling names....because you have nothing...NOTHING.
You're one of the many poster children for the bagger way of thinking.
Trump has NEVER stood up to David Duke. Bannon is a white supremacist par excellence. And Trump's mollycoddling of the KKK and Neo-Nazis after Charlottesville, VA prove my point. Trump is a white supremacist and he doesn't go out of his way to hide it.
So, Brannon, go suck a lemon because your little more than a sourpuss bagger and you and your brethren are losing more and more traction every day because of your extremist views.
btw....when is your KKK membership card due for renewal?

Forget wrist slapping. She needs a good bitch slapping.

Thanks for the backup, brother.

You misread how serious this so-called "slap on the wrist was". I mean, after all, the network embarrassed her by apologizing for her. Actually apologizing! How hurtful that must be for her! And far more effective than firing or suspending her, which, of course, would have made her a martyr. ESPN -- the Every Stupid Position Network.

This is, of course, a racist pos. How do these morons dare say, "blacks can't be racist" when there are examples galore, like this, of blacks making racist comments and getting away with it.

I guess that they assume that white people dont watch sports. Why is black superiority and bashing of Christians tolerated? Those that hate God Almighty are protected and the Christian white people that fought and defeated slavery are called white racists. Muslems who worship satan and kill for him are to be protected?? Up is down, good is evil, and wrong is right?

America: the floods so far are only the beginning. God's wrath will be poured out. Please turn to the One True God now while it is day and to the only Redeemer, His Son and King of Kings.

Yes Larry. We are in the beginning of Sorrows. I believe we will see devastating earthquakes in the USA soon and California, Oregon, Washington State, the Eastern Atlantic Coast, the remaing Gulf States and the entire Mississippi Delta will see a lot of seawater and death. At least California will finally secede from the Union and in large part join the Pacific basin.

There will be a new Island off the East Coast and much of New York and other big East Coast cities will be washed clean. Afterwards, the rocks begin falling. Then comes Jacobs trouble. The CIA (online) predicts USA population at circa 50 million by 2025. Not in news but available online. Curious?

Typical black female lib that deep down inside probably hates all whites. If ESPN wants to keep their viewing audience then they need to dump her and to stay out of politics...AMEN!

Not very smart for the "leadership" of espn to allow this to happen and continue as they drive away their "customers" and hurt their business as at least half of America voted for our President and don't appreciate her remarks?

What do you expect from CNN? She is a woman and a BLM supporter so she cannot be taken seriously.

This disgusting stone racist bigoted, prejudiced, unappreciative hack who has the temerity to call someone names and if he is a White Supremacist, so what, what are you? If he is proud of his heritage what is that to you? You have the right to open your big mouth because of European Caucasian Christian men. Not Dictators and tribal chiefs who sold your ancestors out at every opportunity. Grow up and be a decent human being or hit the proverbial Marxist, Satanist, racist road you are on currently. You are a disgrace and just another reason so many people I have come across refuse to listen or watch ESPN, worthless as you are. What an invidious creature you truly are.

Better that Trump surround himself with "White Supremacists" than Black Inferiorists. It's white supremacy or rather superiority that made this country great. It is on the decline though as the howling, foaming-at-the-mouth blacks and their self-hating white supporters will bring this country down to the level of Venezuela.

(Updated: September 13, 2017)

It's racist! (but it isn't). They can get away with anything they like. (I have no use for any of these fools anyway). It is all about politics, not athletics.

This was a racist rant, plain and simple.

She should be fired, she is on a sports talk program nobody cares what she has to say about politics, she has no right using that show as her platform to disrespect our president. Nobody cares about her opinions about sports and we definitely don't care how she feels about anything else, talk sports or get the hell off TV because there already enough out there like you that think we care about what you think,we don't

Rob, ESPN and the NFL are in Decline!! They never will learn that we watch them because we want to get AWAY from Politics!!! Their failure will be of their own doing!!!

I believe the reason ESPN didn't fire Jemele is because, they're afraid of getting backlash due to Jemele being black???

Appears that the espn "leadership" is leftist and most likely agree with their liberal spokesperson and therefore there will be no repercussions. Time for those that don't wish to listen to their political opinions to choose different stations for their sports news.
