Charlamagne awards ESPN Donkey Of The Day for issuing a statement on host Jemele Hill's tweets slamming Trump for the bigot he is. "The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the President do not represent the position of ESPN," the statement says. "We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate."
So what exactly was inappropriate about Jemele Hill's tweets? Trump has a history of making bigoted statements and playing to his base's racism. Why are people more outraged about Jemele's tweets than Trump's actions?
Listen to Donkey Of The Day above.
Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) September 11, 2017
Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Period.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) September 11, 2017
Donald Trump is a bigot. Glad you could live with voting for him. I couldn't, because I cared about more than just myself— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) September 12, 2017
