ESPN host Jemele Hill doubled down on her claim President Trump is a “White Supremacist while visiting the View earlier today.
The social media backlash was swift.
ESPN personality and former “SportsCenter” anchor Jemele Hill, who has been at the center of the political firestorm at the network accused by many conservatives of having a liberal slant, revisited her controversy on an appearance on “The View” on Wednesday.
Hill started a frenzy with her September tweets critical of President Donald Trump calling him and his supporters white supremacists and saying that he is unfit for office. These tweets were posted during the NFL’s anthem-kneeling controversy and in the wake of the white supremacist rallies that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.

He is unqualified and unfit to be president. He is not a leader. And if he were not white, he never would have been elected

Back when Hill made this statement, most on Twitter who replied did NOT agree with her.
You have right to your opinion. But I lost my health insurance because of President Obama. I work two jobs.
