That’s just my opinion.

Yesterday, the White House called for the firing of ESPN’s Jemele Hill over her recent tweets in which she called the President a White Supremacist. Later, ESPN accepted Hill’s public apology.

The social media storm continues, however, with many Republicans still angry over her tweets, her apology, and ESPN’s response.

Compare all that to what happened after the Charlottesville tragedy. The President’s initial response was that there was blame on “both sides”. Susan Bro was angered by those words. It was her daughter, Heather Heyer, who was killed by the White Supremacist who drove his car into the crowd of protestors.

Susan Bro received death threats for refusing to speak to the President.

Hill probably went a little overboard with her tweet. But that was nothing compared to a grief-stricken mother getting death threats. That’s just my opinion. What’s yours?

    Agree with you completeky. In addition, Obama certainly never suggested trump should be fired from Apprentice after all the birther comments. Regardless of what side of the political fence were on, surely a citizen shouldn’t be fired for criticizing a president. Unless we’re now in a dictatorship?
