ESPN's Jemele Hill shared a tweet in which she called President Trump a white supremacist. Trump didn't like being criticized by a sportscaster, and he replied on Twitter, demanding an apology. Of course, one thing we know to be consistent about Trump is his inconsistency, so it was just a matter of time before someone found an old Trump tweet that contradicted the new Trump tweet.
Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) September 11, 2017
ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 15, 2017
Enter Matt Pearce, a correspondent for the LA Times. Pearce found a 2013 Trump tweet about ESPN's Brent Musburger, who had made sexist comments about A.J. McCarron's girlfriend, Katherine Webb. ESPN issued an apology.
Of course there's a Tweet. He can't stop spewing vitriolic inanity.— Lady Pie de Grue (@DPetagrew) September 15, 2017
Trump's Law: for every tweet posted by Trump, there is an equal and opposite tweet he previously posted.— Greg E. (@Dafuq__Wuz_Dat) September 16, 2017
I can't believe that there literally is an old opposite viewpoint tweet for most of the stuff he tweets now. He could debate himself!— James Lacerenza (@JamesOnWheels) September 16, 2017
His Twitter archive is like a political Black Mirror episode. 😩— Stacey E. Singleton (@staceyNYCDC) September 15, 2017
To the right wingers NOW an APOLOGY is a politically correct thing to do??? REALLY???— NanoNana (@Nanonana1977) September 15, 2017
