Michigan State University graduate, now SportsCenter host on ESPN, Jemele Hill, made national headlines earlier this week when she called President Donald Trump a white supremacist via Twitter. ESPN issued a statement noting that Hill's comments do not represent the company and that they had addressed it with Hill. This morning on Twitter President Trump said ESPN "is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth."
