Jemele Hill Comments Again On President Trump, His Supporters

Jemele Hill speaks on ESPN's SportsCenter.

Jemele Hill made an appearance on The View today. The ESPN host has been making several appearances on various shows since leaving the 6 p.m. SportsCenter.

The 42-year-0ld ESPN personality was of course asked about her thoughts on President Trump. She didn't take anything back.

Hill was suspended by ESPN back in the fall for something she tweeted about President Trump. She called him a white supremacist.

The ESPN personality says she stands by what she said. "I still stand by what I said," Hill told Meghan McCain, adding, "I don't think his supporters are white supremacists."

Hill added that she probably shouldn't have gone to Twitter when she was angry.

“I probably did what you shouldn’t do when you feel emotional, a little angry, which is go to Twitter. And I got into a dialogue… obviously everybody has seen the tweets, you know what I said,” Hill said. “I did not expect in that moment that it was going to become what it became... it leads to the president personally calling me out.”

Hill said she probably would do things differently if she could go back in time. She said she would have asked ESPN if she could write a column instead of taking to Twitter.

Her tweet led to President Trump personally calling her out.

“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 tweeted on Oct. 10, 2017

Hill is currently in a new role at ESPN. She left the 6 p.m. SportsCenter and is now working with The Undefeated.
