"The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the president do not represent the position of ESPN", the network tweeted from its public relations department's account.

Others, however-including the National Association of Black Journalists, ESPN co-workers, and other journalists who are posting their own statements on Trump in solidarity-are rushing to the defense of Hill, saying she only spoke the truth and that her comments are protected by the First Amendment.

Schilling tweeted, "She didn't get fired 'cau [s] e [D] isney and ESPN are fine w/liberal racism vs conservative logic".

To back up his claim, Travis pointed out that when former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka criticized Obama and announced his support for Trump, he was sacked from ESPN.

Sanders' comment drew criticism that it was wrong for the White House to call for the firing of a private employee for criticizing the president.

However, it is not outlandish considering the key role a world-class defensive midfielder plays in any good Mourinho side. But again, he was one of "my guys", was one of the guys that we kept close during these years even not working together.

"I'm not sure if he's aware" of the tweets, Sanders said, "but I think that's one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make, and certainly something that I think is a fireable offense by ESPN".

"Well, you said yesterday it was a fireable offense", host Steve Doocy said.

The briefing room exchange came two days after Hill went on a tweetstorm about Trump. Many users expressed shock at the idea of the White House encouraging ESPN to fire someone for criticizing the president.

For her part, Hill hasn't posted anything new on Twitter since ESPN weighed in on Tuesday.

The reason I tweeted what I tweeted is I know Jemele, I have spent time with her, I know what she is about, and I wanted to say that I support her as a friend and a colleague. He wrote, concisely, "Trump is a white supremacist".
