Sarah Sanders vs. White House Reporters on ESPN’s Jamele Hill: “Please Be Respecftul”

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spars with reporters over President Trump’s comments about ESPN’s Jamele Hill, who tweeted last week that she thinks Trump is a “white supremacist.”

QUESTION: Thank you, Sarah. A quick — a question, but a quick clarification on the — on the ESPN matter.

You had said it was a fireable offense. That’s being interpreted as saying that she should be fired. Are you or the president saying that she should be fired?

SANDERS: That’s not a decision that I’m going to make. That’s something for ESPN to decide.

Again, I was asked about that. I think it is a fireable offense, based on the standard that ESPN has set themselves, by saying that people that go too far and make political comments have been suspended from their own network. I think that that is a consistency that they should probably focus on.

Margaret?

(CROSSTALK)

QUESTION: … advice to a private company, Sarah…

SANDERS: Margaret?

Hallie, I’ve already taken a question from you.

QUESTION: … try to (ph) clarify that? And I know you have, and I appreciate that, but you said it was an individual, not a private company.

SANDERS: I’m just asking you to be respectful to your colleagues, so that I can get around the room.

QUESTION: But (inaudible) an answer to that (ph).

SANDERS: I’ve got about two minutes left.

Go ahead, Margaret.

QUESTION: You haven’t answered it. Could you?

QUESTION: I’ll yield, if you want to answer that.

SANDERS: Go ahead.

QUESTION: Thank you.

SANDERS: And this will be the last question, since we’re tight on time.

QUESTION: Can (ph) we do a schedule before the end? That’s all I wanted to ask.

(CROSSTALK)

QUESTION: I don’t want to take Margaret’s question away. I just was…

(CROSSTALK)

QUESTION: I haven’t had a question (ph)…

(CROSSTALK)

QUESTION: This is — I’ll call on that clarification, Sarah, because you said you don’t have advice for a private company, yet you’re giving advice to — to ESPN.(CROSSTALK)

SANDERS: I said it’s not my decision to make for a private company.

I was asked specific about that individual. I made a comment. I stand by it. I think ESPN needs to stand by the standard that they have set, and the — own actions that they’ve taken about previous employees.

I really don’t have much else to add on that front.
