ESPN’s Jemele Hill: ‘I Stand by Calling Trump a White Supremacist’

ESPN’s Jemele Hill is once again refusing to back down from her claim that President Trump is a “white supremacist.”

The former SportsCenter host appeared on ABC’s The View on Wednesday, and declined the opportunity to retract her harsh statement towards the president.

ABC host Meghan McCain, who is said to represent the center right perspective on the morning talk show, quizzed Hill about her 2017 attack on the president, according to the Washington-based newspaper The Hill.

“Do you stand by what you said and do you think that President Trump supporters are white supremacists?” McCain asked.

“I still stand by what I said,” Hill told the women. “I don’t think his supporters are white supremacists. What I would say though is they have the benefit of privilege to be able to distance and disassociate themselves from certain issues.

“As a woman of color I feel vulnerable to certain things he said and done, and so all of that was part of that response of feeling that vulnerability,” Hill added. “If you don’t feel that it’s probably harder for you to understand it.”

Hill also said that she wouldn’t consider Trump cabinet member Doctor Ben Carson to be a “white supremacist.”

Hill then hinted that we should “know the names” of those in the Trump administration that fit her accusation, though the conversation shifted before she named any names.

Hill earned criticism after her tweet last September, calling Trump a “white supremacist:”

Hill was given only a wrist slap for the tweet. However, she later received a two-week suspension for urging fans to boycott the Dallas Cowboys after team owner Jerry Jones said that if his players protested the anthem, they wouldn’t play.

Despite being censured by ESPN’s bosses for breaking the company’s policy, Hill has repeatedly expressed pride in her comments and has continued to break the rules with frequent political statements.

    She has no business saying her personal opinion on the job. She should keep her bias opinions to herself. Just like her football playing like minded people, they should not be allowed to use their jobs as a platform to state their personal thoughts. They all get paid to do their job, protesting is not working. They all hate, haters going to hate.

    This story isn’t about White Supremacy. This story is about the 8 years of “Black Privilege” coming to an end after the Kenyan ex-POTUS left the Oval Office. This is the reason why the African minority population of the US (13%) are all attacking Our Great POTUS Donald J. Trump.

    Jemele Hill is a Racist and a Black Supremacists. We need to live and work together. Anarkist like this need to be deposed and removed from positions of power. Any news person with a platform of a news show has a platform that reaches millions to spread her hate and disunity of this country. Trump is not a White Supremacist and she knows it. The only way to get her way is to help remove a good man from power to get a corrupt one to replace him. Propaganda of false claims and fake facts are the only way she can accomplish her agenda. She can not prove her false claims so she belittles all who call her out on the false claims she makes. People tend to believe something if it is said over and over. The old saying where there is smoke there is fire. That means she will never stop as long as she has a platform. She needs to be removed from that platform.
