I’m With Jemele Hill… And I Hope Trump Sues Her!

Jemele Hill

On September, 11th, Jemele Hill an ESPN Host, created quite an uproar with a series of tweets about President Trump. She wrote:

The height of white privilege is being able to ✌🏾ignore✌🏾his white supremacy, because it’s of no threat to you. Well, it’s a threat to me.

Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Period.

Right about then all Hell broke loose. First White House Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders, speaking from the podium, called for ESPN to fire Jemele Hill. Later the President himself weighed in by attacking ESPN and calling for an apology.

 I sincerely hope that if Trump is so offended by Jemele Hill’s comments, that he sues her for slander in a court of law. My lawyer friends tell me that an absolute defense to a slander charge is if your statements are true. That Trump is a White Supremacists can be documented many times over by his own remarks, tweets, and actions. His comments about “the blacks”, “the Muslims”, “the Indians””, “the Jews”, Chinese, Koreans, and more make him impossible to defend on that count. Fellow White Supremacists know he’s got nothing but love for him and see the wink on the times he’s been literally forced to say something bad about them.
Has he “largely surrounded himself with White Supremacists.” Let’s see” Bannon, Gorka, Miller, easily come to mind. His sons, Mike Flynn and Mike Flynn, Jr have retweeted Neo-Nazi memes on multiple occasions. Sessions. Case closed on that one.
Is he actually “the most offensive President” of her lifetime, whose rise is “a direct result of White Supremacy.” There’s little justification that he has any other qualification that made him President beside his naked appeal to whiteness and not being Barack Obama.
Besides losing “bigly” (my spell-check refuses to acknowledge bigly as a word) on the merits of the case. It would give Jemele Hill’s attorneys a chance to depose Trump and force him to answer under oath for every word and deed that demonstrated his views which in his rallies he made every attempt to make clear.

For the record. Jemele Hill didn’t retract any of her statements but did regret her employer being caught up in it. ESPN issued a statement indicating her tweets were against company policy and had been handled internally. Jemele appeared on air for her next scheduled show.

    1. I totally agree with everything you have said! This response of trump is ludicrous! He can emasculate and ridicule with his objectionable tweets, and this woman with her accurate tweet means she has to lose her job! I hope ESPN doesn’t give into the pressure!

  1. ESPN had better let this Black woman do the job for which she was hired to do.
    No one said anything to NBC when their loud mouth racist made numerous incorrect statements about his birthplace against the first 1/2 Black (I always acknowledge his entire heritage) 1/2 White President.
