She countered by questioning whether she was being ordered to apologize for the Trump tweets or just asked to apologize.

"Yesterday was a hard and unusual day, with a number of people interpreting the day without a full picture that happened", King told ThinkProgress.

ESPN tried to take Jemele Hill off the air Wednesday in the wake of her Twitter controversy - but her co-host, Michael Smith, refused to do "SportsCenter" without her, a report says. Sanders admitted that she was unsure whether the president was aware of Hill's comments, but proceeded to create an unofficially official administration position on them nonetheless.

Earlier this week, Hill, who hosts "SportsCenter", Hill tweeted that President Donald Trump is a "white supremacist" who is "unfit and unqualified" to be commander-in-chief. The event had turned to tragedy and a 32 year old woman had been killed by a sympathizer with neo-nazi after clashes between the white supremacist and anti-racist activists.

"Well, it's a threat to me", she typed.

Hill, an African-American anchor for "SC6", the new 6 p.m. version of ESPN's "Sports Centre", made the remark Tuesday in a Twitter tirade. The president also called for an apology. 'My regret is that my comments and the public way I made them painted ESPN in an unfair light.

Longtime sports journalist and ESPN commentator Michael Wilbon tweeted out that he is "Happy to stand with my friend and colleague Jemele Hill any time and anywhere...especially now..."

While many Twitter users called for Hill to be fired, unemployed National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick expressed his support, tweeting "We are with you jemelehill".

Hill sent a statement via Twitter Wednesday in which she apologized for making ESPN look bad through her comments.

Trump's not-so-subtle response was a reaction to controversy surrounding host Jemele Hill, an outspoken liberal who now has a pair of photographs with Barack and Michelle Obama pinned atop her Twitter feed.
