White House’s Sarah Huckabee Sanders Calls For ESPN To Fire Jemele Hill

|

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is calling for ESPN to fire SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill because she criticized the man currently sitting in the Oval Office.

Hill created a bit of a stir on social media earlier this week when she credited white supremacist for Trump’s rise to office.

She added that Trump was “unqualified and unfit to be President.”

ESPN eventually acknowledged the Twitter exchange and said Hill’s comments did not reflect the values of the network and that they were inappropriate. That should have been it. We’re all adults here, right?

Well, on Wednesday, the White House addressed Hill’s comments — yes, during a White House Press Briefing an ESPN anchor was discussed — and it resulted in Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying Hill’s comments were a fireable offense.

“I’m not sure he’s aware but I think that’s one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make and certainly something that I think is a fireable offense by ESPN,” Sanders said.

What a world we live in. The White House is calling for someone to be fired over a mean tweet.

Usually people can just brush off criticism — especially when they’re in the highest office in the world — but we’ve learned that this administration is as unconventional as it gets.

But for a look back at a simpler time, let’s enjoy a president with a sense of humor.
