ESPN Reporters Slam Trump Over Comments About Jemele Hill: ‘Stop Attacking Our Colleague’


President Donald Trump wasted little time Tuesday going after ESPN anchor Jemele Hill — who was suspended two weeks by her network on Monday for violating the company social media policy after seeming to encourage a boycott of Dallas Cowboys advertisers. In an early morning tweet, the President took a shot at both Hill and ESPN following the announcement of the suspension.

“With Jemele Hill at the mike, it is no wonder ESPN ratings have tanked,’ in fact, tanked so badly it is the talk of the industry!” Trump wrote.

A number of Hill’s colleagues did not take kindly to this comment, with several making their displeasure known on Twitter.

Some of Hill’s ESPN cohorts didn’t criticize Trump — but still offered support for Hill.
