The White House press secretary believes an ESPN anchor should face firing for speaking out against President Donald Trump. Sarah Huckabee Sanders called Jemele Hill's comments outrageous and should be considered "a fireable offense by ESPN." Hill lashed out at Trump in a series of tweets on Monday, calling the President a white supremacist who was unfit to serve.
ESPN released a statement Tuesday saying Hill's views did not reflect those of the network.
