White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has demanded that ESPN fire Jemele Hill, the “SC6 with Michael and Jemele” host who called President Donald Trump a “white supremacist” in a series of tweets over the weekend, The Hill reports.

Sanders called Hill’s claim, “one of the more outrageous comments that anybody could make and certainly is something that is a fireable offense by ESPN.”
In the wake of Sanders’ comments, ESPN publicly chastised Hill in a statement, saying, “We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.” By singling out Hill, Sanders ignores many of the other journalists and news media outlets that have published similar claims about Trump’s White supremacy.
Rolling Stones writer Tim Dickinson called out Sanders’ hypocrisy in a tweet.
Two of the covers depicted Trump with a Ku Klux Klan hood. Another had image of Trump giving a Nazi salute. Apparently, those symbols of White supremacy aren’t as offensive to Sanders as the words “White supremacist.”
