Friday was Jemele Hill’s last day at ESPN as the one time sports network turns the page on one of its most divisive and controversial figures.
As the ill-advised decisions to put a SJW spin on sports coverage slowly began to bite the honchos in Bristol in the ass, Hill exploded last year with a series of tweets that accused President Trump of being a white supremacist.
Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.

The network then took fire from many over the failure to punish the anti-white racist who quickly escalated, calling for a fan boycott of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys.
That earned the hostess of the flagship SportsCenter a slap on the wrist with a brief suspension but the dye was cast. Several months after cokehead president John Skipper resigned, ESPN finally demoted Hill to a less visible spot.
Last month it was reported that she was being paid off to go away and she confirmed her exit via Twitter.
Over the last several weeks, there have been a lot of rumors about my job status. Today is my last day at ESPN.

ESPN issued its own statement shortly thereafter:

Anti-Trump ESPN pundit Jemele Hill is officially leaving the network after months of speculation about her future, the former “SportsCenter” anchor announced on Twitter on Friday.
“The time has come for me to begin a new chapter in my life,” Hill tweeted before signaling out a group of people she wanted to thank, including former ESPN president John Skipper — who left the network last year when a drug dealer attempted to extort him by using his cocaine habit against him.
Hill famously called President Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter last year, which put a spotlight on what many critics feel is a liberal bias at ESPN. She also called Trump a “bigot” and “unqualified and unfit to be president.”
She added, “If he were not white, he never would have been elected.”
Is this a sign that ESPN is beginning to shift away from racial grievance mongering and babbling about identity politics to once again focus on sports?
Possibly bit it’s likely too little too late.
