Serial liar Sarah Huckabee Sanders attacked ESPN’s Jemele Hill saying she should be fired for tweeting that Donald Trump is a white supremacist. Hill accurately described Trump as white supremacist. This is the same man who launched his presidential campaign attacking Mexicans as drug dealers and rapists.
“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 during the daily White House press briefing.
So, let me get this straight, the White House is telling a private employer to fire one of its employees because she criticized Donald Trump? It’s shameful that ESPN even went as far as to apologize.

Um, well, let’s see….didn’t he call the white supremacists who caused the violence in Charlottesville some “very fine people?” Aren’t his policies and programs geared towards white nationalism? Wait, didn’t former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke praise Trump for not attacking them over the violence in Charlottesville? Just yesterday, the both chambers of Congress voted unanimously on a resolution that will force Donald Trump to formally condemn white supremacists.
Hill tweeted on Monday: “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”

Hill is not wrong. Stephen Miller is still in the White House. Steve Bannon and Sebastian Gorka were also serving in the White House until they were ousted. Donald Trump has a long history of racial animus going back to the 1970s. Meeting with Sen. Tim Scott isn’t going to change his ugly racist past. Charleston church shooter and white supremacist Dylann Roof had a black friend too.
I don’t know why journalists even show up to the White House press briefings. They are a complete waste of time, plus it’s one lie after another. You know what’s a “fireable offense” to me? Committing treason with Russia and lying under oath.
Reaction on Twitter:
White House officially declares that speaking out against our "Great Leader" is a fireable offense. What the absolute f***?!

Today, the White House press secretary used the people's podium to call for the firing of an individual citizen, @jemelehill. Take that in.

ESPN fucking sold Jemele Hill out to appease fucking Breitbart, teeing her up for bullshit from the racist fucking White House. Despicable.

Jemele Hill said what many think. The burden is on Donald to prove otherwise. Exhibit A: his forked-tongue message about Charlottesville.
