ESPN apologizes after Jemele Hill calls President Trump

"At a concert a year ago, the musician reportedly yelled "(expletive) Colin Kaepernick".

Hill made the comments on Twitter on Monday, Sept. 11, in an interaction with a Twitter follower.

Responding to critics of that initial tweet led to a discussion about Trump and white supremacy.

Liberals, too, heaped their scorn on ESPN's response to Hill's tweet, many feeling that her statements were accurate and did not necessitate a statement from corporate. Instead they're pushing them away, saying they're white supremacists - you're not welcome here. Hill didn't mince words about her feelings toward the president or the impact she thinks he's had on the nation. He is not a leader. She has also hosted Numbers Will Never Lie and His and Hers.

ESPN anchor Jemele Hill is the latest on-air personality at the network to be embroiled in controversy thanks to social media commentary that went beyond sports.

"The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN". Hill is an anchor on ESPN's "SportsCenter".

Hingis and Murray remain undefeated, win the US Open
Scot Murray, who won the the men's doubles title with Bruno Soares in NY previous year , now has five Grand Slam titles. A bid for a second slice of grand slam history has fallen short for New Zealand doubles specialist Michael Venus .

ESPN, which has been accused by conservatives of leaning heavily left in political commentary, did not indicate that Hill will be suspended or otherwise disciplined for her remarks.

Some say ESPN's recent staff cuts and drop in subscribers have to do with the network overloading on political issues. She is known for not shying away when current events and sports intersect. Behind the scenes of this liberal media organization, in the halls of upper management, was there really any strong disagreement with what she said?

"Hill argued earlier this summer that she has no other choice but to share her opinion because "the athletes are dragging us here".

Colin Kaepernick was the first to stand alongside Hill publically. He did it on his own. "So, was I supposed to act like he didn't?"

Now, when not getting put in her place by the network, she can be found on Twitter fighting with people who were probably once avid ESPN viewers, but like many have exhausted of the network and stopped watching due to their liberal bias and political injections over the past year.
