White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has demanded that ESPN fire Jemele Hill, the “SC6 with Michael and Jemele” host who called Trump a “white supremacist” in a series of tweets over the weekend, The Hill reports.

Sanders called Hill’s claim, “one of the more outrageous comments that anybody could make and certainly is something that is a fireable offense by ESPN.” 

In the wake of Sanders’ comments, ESPN publicly chastised Hill in a statement, saying, “We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.”  By singling out Hill, Sanders ignores many of the other journalists and news media outlets who have published similar claims about Trump’s White supremacy.

Rolling Stones writer Tim Dickinson called out Sanders’ hypocrisy in a tweet.

In August, NBC Nightly News collected the covers of publications who criticized Trump’s response to Charlottesville, in which he called “Unite the Right” protesters “very fine people.”

Two of the covers depict Trump with a Klan hood, The third cover depicts Trump giving a Nazi salute. Apparently, symbols of White supremacy aren’t as offensive to Sanders as the words “White supremacist.”
