ESPN gave host Jemele Hill a tiny, meaningless slap on the wrist for calling President Donald Trump a “white supremacist.” Today a White House correspondent asked presidential spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders what Trump thinks about Hill’s comment.

Her reply was direct and forceful.

Days later, ESPN issued a statement that proved it would not punish Hill at all for her comments.

“I’m not sure if he’s aware of it,” Sanders said before adding, “but I think that’s one of the more outrageous that anyone could make, and certainly something that I think is a fireable offense by ESPN.”
