12 minutes after Portnoy, The Washington Post’s David Nakamura brought up the inflammatory comments made by leftist ESPN personality Jemele Hill in context of diversity:
I just want to read a comment from an influential African-American sportscaster ESPN yesterday who said “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who’s largely surrounded himself w/other white supremacists” who’s “rise is a direct result of white supremacy...Period...He is unqualified and unfit to be President.” Why do you think — do you have a reaction to that and is the President aware of that comment?
Huckabee Sanders responded that she’s uncertain that President Trump has been aware of these claims, but, from her perspective, “I think that's one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make and certainly something that, I think, is a fireable offense by ESPN.”
