ESPN anchor's Trump comments a 'fireable offense,' says White House's Sanders

ESPN anchor's Trump comments a 'fireable offense,' says White House's Sanders

"If Obama bragged about grabbing women by their vaginas, you wouldn't have to say much, Britt, because he wouldn't have been elected", responded The MMQB's Robert Klemko.

On Tuesday, ESPN released a statement to address her tweets.

Jemele Hill, host of "The Six", went on a Twitter tirade about President Donald Trump on Monday where she held little back.

But the decision to suspend Cohn seems harsh given the recent events involving another ESPN on-air personality.

Some have called for Hill to be suspended, or even fired, for the comments about Trump, saying they violate ESPN's social media policies and that conservative commentators are not treated equally by the network.

Hill's tweet about Kid Rock spurred hundreds of responses, which eventually resulted in a discussion of the White House.

Critics have pointed out that Hill is keeping her job despite former conservative commentators losing theirs over less egregious rhetoric.

The comments came as part of a larger Twitter battle that got a little too heated for ESPN's taste.

ESPN made headlines in April for issuing new employee guidelines for discussing politics, given the tense political climate following the Trump-Hillary Clinton election.

They don't want to hear that Colin Kaepernick is a modern-day Rosa Parks.

Judging by Jemele's earlier tweets, she'd be happy not just because she's getting support, but simply because athletes are taking a stand on SOMETHING.

ESPN previous year fired the conservative Schilling for what management deemed insensitive social media posts targeting, not a politician, but transgender people.

But many Trump supporters panned the anchor for airing her political views. He has a theory for why the Connecticut-based sports network has turned to the left.

According to The Daily Beast, Hill said at a conference in June that mixing sports and politics are unavoidable in today's hot political climate. However, the folks at Disney clearly don't mind if right-leaning viewers find their sports news elsewhere - and the network is losing subscribers in the process.
