Anti-Trump “reporter” is in deep trouble for sending a tweet about assassination
Jemele Hill kept her job at ESPN despite attacking President Trump and calling him a white supremacist.
ESPN eventually cut ties with her because no one watched her shows.
But now she sent one tweet that put the Secret Service on high alert.
Leftwing news site, The Atlantic, hired Jemele Hill last fall to cover “issues related to sports, race, politics, and culture.”
After President Trump’s State of the Union Address, Hill sent a tweet that alluded to assassinating the President.
In a now-deleted tweet, Hill wrote: “GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET.”
This was a reference to the assassination of Malcolm X. A man in the crowd reportedly yelled those words to distract Malcolm X’s bodyguards leaving him vulnerable to attack.
That’s when Malcolm X was shot.
Hill claimed her tweet was just a joke, but her past statements about the President reveal her true feelings.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The Secret Service has been informed of a tweet about President Trump by former ESPN personality Jemele Hill that referenced Malcolm X’s assassination.
“While the Secret Service is aware of the subject’s comments, we cannot confirm or comment on the absence or existence of specific investigations. We can say, however, the Secret Service investigates all threats related to our protectees,” the agency told the Washington Examiner via email.
The White House did not immediately respond to the Washington Examiner’s request for comment.
Hill, who now works for the Atlantic, made the allusion to the minister and activist’s violent death in 1965 in reply to another Twitter user. That user had joked that liberal firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., should have shouted, “Whose mans is this?” during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. That phrase, in popular culture, has come to denote a boring person.
“Nah, she gotta yell: GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET,” Hill responded in a since-deleted tweet.
Jemele Hill later tweeted that she was not implying that the President be assassinated.
After receiving more backlash, she deleted the tweet and issued a forced apology.
It’s no secret that Jemele Hill hates President Trump and wishes him ill.
Hill knew exactly what she was doing.
She tweeted a joke about assassinating the President and it blew up in her face.
If a conservative reporter had tweeted implying that President Barack Obama should’ve been assassinated during office, they would lose their job.
