Trump Hits ESPN on Twitter, Demands Apology After White Supremacist Comments

Source: Mediaite



by Jon Levine | 7:39 am, September 15th, 2017

The President of the United States of America was having a very active morning on Twitter, Friday.

After again calling for the end of the filibuster, suggesting new Internet controls, and condemning terrorism in London, Trump also took a moment to blast the sports network ESPN and demand an apology from the network after one of their anchors called him a “white supremacist.”




On September 11, ESPN’s Jemele Hill called Trump a white supremacist on Twitter. While she had her defenders, the controversy reached the White House, when Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called the comments a “fireable offense.” Trump’s tweet shows the matter has reached the Oval Office and will now be enshrined as a part of official United States history.

… Great.

President Trump Blasts ‘Loser Terrorists,’ Promotes Travel Ban After IED Attack in London

by Ken Meyer | 7:32 am, September 15th, 2017

President Trump has tweeted about how “loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner” in light of the terror attack that just took place in London. Trump also used the opportunity to tout his proposed travel ban, possibly revealed information about Scotland Yard’s anti-terror operations, and he also talk about how his progress against radical Islamic extremism is way better than Barack Obama‘s past efforts.










The incident took place in southwest London earlier today, where an improvised explosive device went off at Parsons Green Tube station. Even though the device caught fire and ignited, reports indicate that the bomb failed to actually detonate.

At least eighteen people were hospitalized by the rush hour attack, but early reports indicate that none of the injured are critically wounded. British police have occupied the area and multiple law enforcement agencies have launched an investigation into the situation.

3. Our pResident needs to stop complaining about a sports channel

because there are two states recovering from disaster, one country that is threatening to nuke us, a white supremacist problem, a healthcare issue, a Russian espionage-propaganda problem...

Govern, or get out the way.

7. The man who was the primary driver of the "birther" movement

you know, demanding to see the birth certificate of the prior, black, POTUS, for years.

He's a jackass, that just is a given.

What burns me is the stupid in this country where this is a thing, where the media and and the people of the country act like that never happened.

6. It's official.

Jemele Hill is now my favorite sportscaster.

I can't wait to see what she looks like and how good she is at covering whatever sport it is she actually covers.

12. Gawd, everything he says, everything he does is just so wrong.

It's all lies, lies, lies and more self-serving vicious lies. Too bad there's still some semblance of law in this country because he's out to destroy every good thing here, especially when it comes to laws and regulations.
