Jemele Hill of ESPN called President Trump a white supremacist. Even Don Lemon of CNN says ESPN should apologize to Trump. But there’s a catch…
There’s always a catch. While speaking with TMZ Lemon said the only way ESPN should apologize to President Trump is if Trump apologizes to Barack Obama for the comments he has made about him in the past.
“I think when the president worked for NBC as ‘The Apprentice,’ and he said Barack Obama was not born here and he called Barack Obama ‘racist’ — if he apologizes for that, then maybe ESPN should apologize.”
Donald Trump suggested Obama may not have been born in the United States many times. Trump finally put this to bed in 2016 when he said, “President Barack Obama was born in the United States, period.”
President Trump has made it clear where he stands when it comes to ESPN. He demanded them to “apologize for untruth.”
ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth!

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders commented on the comments made by Jemele Hill. She labeled Hill’s accusations a “fireable offense.”
“I think that’s one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make,” Huckabee Sanders said of Hill’s comments.
