Fox News' Tucker Carlson and Fox Sports' Clay Travis ripped into ESPN Tuesday after an anchor's anti-Trump rant during which she accused President Donald Trump and his supporters of being bigots.
Carlson introduced a "Tucker Carlson Tonight" segment by saying ESPN, which stands for "Entertainment and Sports Programming Network," has been acting more like "Endless Stupid Political Nagging" as their coverage has shifted to focus more on politics than sports.
Carlson and Travis then discussed a recent incident involving ESPN anchor Jemele Hill. The anchor went on a "bizarre twitter rant" Monday, accusing Trump of being a white supremacist and surrounding himself largely with other white supremacists.
Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.
Hill followed the initial tweet with more than a dozen follow-up tweets. Network executives responded by saying they talked to Hill about her comments, and they had "addressed" the matter. Hill was not fired, although the network has fired those who have said they supported Trump or conservative issues, including Curt Schilling and "Da Coach" Mike Ditka.
