Washington - Trump Demands ESPN Apologize For Anchor's Tweets

Washington - President Donald Trump is calling on ESPN to apologize days after one of the sports network’s anchors called him a “white supremacist” and “bigot.”

ESPN said Thursday it had accepted the apology of its “SportsCenter” host Jemele Hill for her tweets about Trump Monday. Hill said Thursday she was sorry for causing her employer trouble.

ESPN has repeatedly said Hill’s comments don’t reflect the view of the network. But that apparently hasn’t satisfied Trump. He demanded on Twitter early Friday that ESPN “Apologize for untruth!”

The president also took a shot at falling ESPN subscriber numbers, writing: “ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers.”

The network didn’t immediately issue a response to the president’s comments Friday.

Why doesn't the same biased ESPN commentator call out the so-called "Reverend" Al Sharpton, as well as Lewis Farrakhan for their biased remarks against Jews?

Make no mistake the failing NYT has only increased subscribers thanks to Trump. They managed to turn their failing newspaper into an anti Trump tabliod paper. If in 2024 Chelsa Clinton becomes president or some other dem, the failing NYT will fail BIGLY. It will loose its allure
