ESPN has issued an apology after one of its hosts, Jemele Hill, described President Trump as a “white supremacist” on social media.

Hill, a co-host on the network's SportsCenter, was involved in an exchange on Twitter on Monday in which she labeled Trump a “white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself [with] other white supremacists.”

I voted No because it is a waste of time. They will just replace her with another just like her. Why those poor souls associated with the NFL are in need of our help. They suffer tremendously at the hands of this government that they hate so much. After all living the lives of millionaires is hard on people and they need to voice their obvious pain.

If ESPN feels that she doesn't reflect well on their image then they should do whatever they feel they need to do. I think she's wrong though. He's not a white supremacist. He just plays to them because they are part of his base.

I marked "yes", because ESPN has established the precedent when they sacked Limbaugh back in '03.

It's a sports network, they need to keep the politics out of it. Especially racial politics.

If they want to live up to their political correctness doctrine they should. I voted no because firstly it was off air and secondly I don't think people should lose their first amendment rights because of what they write and say on their own time.

I'm with you on this for the same exact reasons.

I vote no.

Its called free speech, free speech I prey the Modern Day Progressive Liberal Democrat continues, right up to the next election which they will then loose.

ESPN can do with her what they like. They're days are numbered anyway because they've chosen to interject Modern Day Progressive Liberalism into what they do and the country has had it.

It was just locker room talk.

Remember: the Russians believed that the best way to damage America was help elect Donald Trump.
