People Are Dragging The White House For Saying Jemele Hill's 'White Supremacist' Comment About Trump Is A 'Fireable Offense'

"A White House that won't condemn white supremacy can't handle being called white supremacists?"

Published September 14, 2017

Jemele Hill calling President Trump a "white supremacist" set off a heated debate, with people either blasting ESPN for condemning her comments or imploring "The Worldwide Leader in Sports" to fire the SportsCenter co-host.

That debate only intensified yesterday afternoon, when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said while she isn't sure if Trump knows about Hill's tweets, that calling him a "white supremacist" is "one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make, and certainly something that I think is a fireable offense by ESPN."

Wow.

And that only triggered more people to take aim at the White House and its Celebrity-in-Chief as they blasted them with these passionate and woke reactions.

  1. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders Used Part of Her Time Wednesday to discuss Jemele Hill's comments about President trump

    And people had plenty to say about her calling Hill's remarks a "fireable offense."

  2. People instantly pointed out the hypocrisy of Trump's White House calling for Hill to be fired while refusing to commit to signing a resolution to condemn white supremacists

    How, Sway?!

  3. Others pointed out how the White House is coming down on Hill, but Trump once called former POTUS Barack Obama a racist

    The hypocrisy is real.

  4. If you were wondering just how thin-skinned Trump is...

    How convenient.

  5. And just to further put it out there...

    Amazing.

  6. To the White House And ESPN, just know that Reverend Al Sharpton, the National Association of Black Journalists, Colin Kaepernick and many more have Jemele Hill's back

    Stand with Jemele.
