On the Joe Rogan Experience podcast #1012 with Brendan Schaub yesterday, the topic of ESPN’s Jemele Hill and her racially motivated tweet towards President Trump came up. His statement is below.
“She said he’s a white supremacist, he’s the worst president of all time. And a lot of people said that. It’s just the fact that she’s a public media figure so everybody wanted her fired. This is like the weird outrage culture we live in. She’s entitled to her fucking opinion.”
Joe continued, “but here’s the thing I found fascinating, Donald Trump didn’t talk about her, [he] talked about ESPN. I thought that was a chicken shit thing to do.”
Joe failed to mention that Hill’s tweet also insinuated that Trump supporters were also white supremacists. Saying “his rise is a direct result of white supremacy.”
@DonnyParlock @demillz84 @JayG34 Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.
@DonnyParlock @demillz84 @JayG34 Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy. Period.
So Joe Rogan sees nothing wrong with character defamation of our president. Nor insinuating that millions of voters are also white supremacists. Also Joe doesn’t mention that former MLB pitcher was fired by ESPN for also stating his political opinion against transgender bathrooms.
I am a fan of Joe Rogan, but he is absolutely wrong on this. Her comments were completely inappropriate, unjustified and wrong. And this is a clear double standard. Because ESPN is not firing Hill, I can only assume they agree with her statement…
