It seems the White House is taking a hard stance against Jamele Hill following her comments on Twitter calling Donald Trump a white supremacist.
On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee said she was unaware if the series of tweets gained Trump's attention. Despite being more reserved and calm than her predecessor Sean Spicer, Huckabee slightly railed against Hill saying, "I think that's one of the more outrageous comments that anyone can make and certainly something I think is a fireable offense by ESPN."
While ESPN issued a statement saying they talked to Hill about the comment, there has not been a word of any disciplinary action. Although it seems the White House is none too happy with the comments, Hill has gained support from Colin Kaepernick, and many who feel Trump's comments following the events of Charlotteville were not strong enough against neo-nazis and white nationalist.
However, when asked why prominent individuals in African American community speak against the President, Huckabee said Trump has met with leaders in the community to strengthen relationships, but he will not focus on "outrageous statements."
