ESPN Commentator Makes Anti-Trump Remarks; Network Reacts INSTANTLY

ESPN: Where double standards and “progressive” ideas prevail.

For example, when Curt Schilling, a baseball legend turned ESPN analyst, made a Twitter post against the policy of allowing people of any biological sex use whichever bathroom they choose, as long as they “identify” with that gender, he was fired.

Keep in mind, Schilling wasn’t directing his comments toward anyone in particular, but a policy. (Curt Schilling is white, by the way).

Fast forward a year or so and another ESPN personality, Jemele Hill (who happens to be black) decides to post a specific allegation against the President of the United States.

“Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists,” she wrote. The post remains up as of today.

But while questioning a transgender bathroom policy is an offense worthy of termination, apparently calling the leader of the free world a “white supremacist” is just fine. Hill got a slap on the wrist. If you could call it that.

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

Meanwhile – again – her original post is still up.

Hill hosts the network’s “Sports Center.” Their phone lines and twitter feeds lit up after her post.

She didn’t stop there, though.

“Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Period.” That post, as well, is still up.

But she wasn’t done.

“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?”

Again … another post … still up.

Finally, she ended her diatribe by declaring Trump was “unfit” for office.

“He is unqualified and unfit to be president. He is not a leader. And if he were not white, he never would have been elected.”

Former ESPN writer Jason Whitlock told Fox & Friends that the network has clearly “condoned” what Hill said by not taking any action at all against her.

“I think that ESPN has chosen a lane politically,” Whitlock said. “[ESPN President] John Skipper has certainly made diversity in his view a business innovation for ESPN and has moved the company to the left. So I think no action here against Jemele Hill is a clear sign that they’re in agreement.”

He argued that many media outlets, including ESPN, are controlled by social media, which tends to push people to the far left.

“Attacking the president is a way to get retweeted and liked and to build your following,” Whitlock said. “[Hill] just fell into that trap that a lot of us in the media fall into. We’re way too addicted to Twitter, and we’re way too worried about how many people follow us on Twitter and how many people like us.”

What do you think? Should Hill have been fired just like Schilling? Or should both personalities be able to keep their jobs, recognizing their right to speak their mind? Sound off below!
