You might remember Jemele Hill.
The former ESPN employee called President Trump a white supremacist on Twitter and became infamous as a result.
And last week, Hill refused to take back her comment on one of the biggest Trump-hating shows on television.
Jemele Hill was suspended for two weeks from ESPN after she tweeted that President Trump was a “white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”
Jemele Hill was suspended for two weeks from ESPN
She was the co-anchor of The Six but it was cancelled several months later due to poor ratings.
But recently Hill and ESPN parted ways after both parties reached a buyout agreement.
Now she works for The Atlantic and just narrated the documentary Shut Up And Dribble for Showtime.
That’s why she was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
Colbert is famous for his hatred of Trump and that was naturally the conversation they had.
When Colbert asked her about the tweet she interrupted, “show me the lie!”
Hill is now the “social justice” writer for The Atlantic.
Of course, that means she can condescend on a wide range of issues now.
Superstar basketball player LeBron James produces her new Showtime documentary.
It was entitled Shut Up And Dribble because Fox News’ Laura Ingraham famously told James that after he viciously bashed Trump.
James actually said that Trump “doesn’t give a f—k about the people.”
In a way, Ingraham inspired this whole documentary that effectively glorifies basketball players.
Colbert asked Hill who inspired the title.
Hill dismissed it with, “some woman on Fox News. I think it was Laura Ingraham.”
She mispronounced her last name.
It all seemed like it was on purpose.
She knew exactly who said it.
And mispronouncing her name is a way to demean Ingraham publicly.
It’s as if to say that Ingraham isn’t important enough to be acknowledged.
But then Hill admitted that she should thank Ingraham.
Hill said that she was glad Ingraham, “said that about LeBron James because he was being critical of the president. … I should really be thanking her because without her saying that I don’t know if I’d be narrating this documentary. So, way to give me another check!”

Hill’s always been outspoken about her criticism towards the Trump administration.
She also loved former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.
For a while her photo on Twitter was of them and herself at the White House.
That should sum up where she stands politically. Literally.
Hill is also a staunch Colin Kaepernick defender.
She was one of those sports journalists who refused to let the story go.
In fact, when Alex Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury on Sunday, Hill tweeted again that the Washington Redskins should sign Kaepernick even though that’s not her job anymore.
Hill also discussed Kaepernick on Colbert’s show too.
She claimed that Kaepernick will be “remembered as a hero” for kneeling during the National Anthem.
That’s not true.
He’ll be remembered as a divisive figure that offended millions.
And he didn’t care that he did so.
Do you think Hill’s correct with her comments?
