Donald Trump woke up this morning and decided to target ESPN’s Jemele Hill by name, one day after the network suspended her for violating its social media policy a second time.

The African-American co-host of the 6 p.m. edition of “SportsCenter” was benched for two weeks after tweeting about Jerry Jones’ declaration Sunday that his Dallas Cowboys players who disrespect the flag would not play for his team. Hill tweeted that Jones “created a problem for his players, specifically the Black ones. If they don’t kneel, some will see them as sellouts.”

She also suggested fans who disagree with Jones should boycott the team’s advertisers and not buy the team’s merchandise.

“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!” the president responded via Twitter early Tuesday (Oct. 10).

Trump also went after the NFL, suggesting the U.S. change its tax laws to punish organizations if members are “disrespecting” the national anthem or flag.

“Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!” Trump tweeted.

While NFL viewership is down slightly, ESPN remains among the most popular cable networks, averaging 3 million viewers in prime time, notes The Hollywood Reporter. The network has suffered subscriber losses over the last few years as some viewers have moved to streaming services from cable television.

13 thoughts on “Donald Trump Says Jemele Hill Is The Reason For ESPN’s Supposedly Low Ratings

  1. She is a “reverse racist” who many blacks will support because they condone black racism!!! If whites (and, some did) ranted the same way on air in an “official capacity” about “God-like” Obama, they’d want to personally “verbally lynch” or give them a physical beat down!!

    So, what do some of us blacks expect of a president? Should he not honor the flag and respect our anthem or speak out about those Americans who fail to do so? Or, should he go out in the streets, protest interminably and burn and loot to get a point across?

    Perhaps, he should take a knee in protest of so many anti-Americans and people who all of sudden are ANGRY ABOUT EVERYTHING since he was elected and call him a racist for everything that comes out of his mouth!!

    I have said it before and I will say it again. We are some of the most racist, prejudiced and hypocritical folks on this planet!!

    We should take a knee and get on our collective knees every day and thank the GOOD LORD for THE GIFTS of FREEDOM and OPPORTUNITY that exist in this country.

    It does not mean that WE ARE A PERFECT NATION or that THERE IS NOT MORE WORK TO BE DONE!!

    It simply means GIVING THANKS FOR GOD’S BLESSINGS.

    And, any million dollar athlete or otherwise should know that.

    Because we ALL know that “WHITE MEN CAN’T JUMP, OR PLAY FOOTBALL, BASKETBALL.. SO without Black players, what will the “BITCH ASSES DO? EVERY ONE OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS THAT ARE BLACK SHOULD KNEEL, AND LET’S GO A STEP FURTHER, EVERY BLACK PLAYER IN THE NFL, AND SEE WHAT THE BITCH ASS OWNERS DO THEN? GO AND GET YOU SOME STANDINS, FUCKERS.. HAIL TO THAT WHITE BOY RAPPER WHO RECENTLY DEDICATED HIS LYRICS TO DUMP, HUH…OH I forgot they do have sissy ass Hockey… Fuck you white ass white hood wearing mutha fuckers !!!!!!!!

  3. It’s funny how the white man always blames blacks for all things negative. Let’s all remember ESPN downfall began when they decided to give that he/she Jenner the ESPY award for courage not because of a black woman.

    Trump is so patriotic that his wife had to nudge him to remind him to put his hand to his chest while the national anthem was being played.

  5. ESPMSN is a sports network that has decided to do political analysis, that’s the reason for their low ratings and declining viewers

  6. Why does this fake prez has so much time watching freaking tv? This person is unfit and should be IMPEACHED TODAY!!!!!!! This fake country would never have elected a blk person this DUMB!!

    • Passing Through!! on said:

      Exactly, the worst ratings in presidential history, multiple hurricane disasters, Russian scandal, an administrative cabinet full of leakers, several members of your cabinet facing prison time your son and law included as well as himself. And yet he spends hours, days tweeting about bulls**t! Worrying about the NFL. Lying about ESPN ratings…He won’t last 2 years.

      • And, after Trump is obliterated like you want him to be, what will we be left with and who do you want to replace him? We will be left with an even more divided and fragile country and no liberal democrat will ever be able to fix it with more anti-God policies, decimation of traditional values, tax and spending on steroids, liberal indoctrination of and out and out takeover of our public schools, colleges and universities, the dismantling of 1st Amendment rights for everyone who disagrees with the uber liberal agenda of the leftist, secular progressives who seek to destroy the remaining decent and traditional things about this country, etc!!

        So, pick your candidate for replacement. But, it really does not matter because soon NOTHING WILL BE FIXABLE in this country because we will simply self destruct. And, that is NOT ON TRUMP who has been in office for less than a year.

        Just so you know, there was MORE THAN A SCINTILLA OF EVIDENCE of LIARS and LEAKERS in the Obama administration to include the “HALLOWED PRESIDENT” himself and many were shielded FROM PRISON TIME like the “HALLOWED PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE”, Mrs. Bill Clinton and even “THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT”, himself, President William Jefferson Clinton who enjoyed stellar ratings while in office!!!

        BTW, are you now blaming natural disasters on Trump? Tell me; was it Obama’s fault when we had mass shootings and natural disasters during his two terms in office?

        Absolutely incredulous and hilarious to boot!!

  7. Jemele hill is a black supremacist and the worst racist I have ever seen. She is the ultimate affirmative action hire. She isn’t worthy to clean toilets. The reason ESPN is going downhill is because all the racist, militant, affirmative actions hires like Jemele Hill and black panther isrealite Steven a Smiff yo. Good the NFL is now the least popular sport in the country. F the NFL and all of it’s felon black players.
