ESPN SportsCenter host Jemele Hill was wrong.
She was wrong to call President Donald Trump a “white supremacist.”
It hurts me to say that because I know Jemele.
I worked with her at the Orlando Sentinel several years ago.
I think she is a talented broadcaster, a provocative writer and one of the brightest stars in the ESPN universe.
But she was irresponsible when she went on the Twitter the other day and started ranting against President Trump.
“Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists,” Jemele tweeted.
“Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. He is unqualified and unfit to be president. He is not a leader. And if he were not white, he never would have been elected.”
