ESPN’s downslide is happening right before our eyes.
The worldwide leader in sports is loaded with personalities who spew anti-President Trump hatred on a daily basis.
But now ESPN shockingly gave all of them a stern warning.
The massive hit ABC sitcom, Roseanne, was recently canceled by a controversial tweet from its star, Roseanne Barr, by saying that former top advisor Valerie Jarrett was if“muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”
When ABC President Channing Dungey had a knee-jerk reaction and abruptly ended the network’s biggest hit, Disney CEO Bob Iger supported her move and reportedly said, “There is no debate on the right moral position.”
But President Trump had something to say about that.
Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?

If you don’t already know, Disney is the parent company to both ESPN and ABC so that means that Iger is the head boss.
So if what Barr tweeted was amoral then why does he allow many of his employees to spew hate garbage about the right and, specifically, Trump?
Jimmy Kimmel is one of ABC’s top dogs on the network because he’s the host of their main late night talk show and he’s constantly perpetuating anti-Trump nonsense almost literally every single night.
On ESPN, Jemele Hill, Max Kellerman, Stephen A. Smith, Keith Olbermann and many others have all expressed outrageous disdain toward Trump.
You might remember that Hill called Trump a “white supremacist” on Twitter and was subsequently suspended for only two weeks.
Barr gives a late night tweet – albeit still a dumb take – and her entire show is canceled?
Why does one get a slap on the wrist and the other gets her entire career taken from her? Liberal bias much?
But after Trump’s tweet, the New York Post indicated that ESPN managers reached out to their most outspoken political broadcasters/writers to stop tweeting about politics.
And then in the most perfect irony, Jemele Hill made a mockery of the breaking story on Twitter.
Oops, I hit decline when an 860 number popped up … kidding. This is all kinds of hilarious. https://t.co/e1jl0zQ5Xy

All of this is hypocrisy at its absolute finest.
Keith Olbermann is one of ESPN’s worst offenders and newest hires.
You might remember him from his liberal nonsense show on MSNBC but he’s certainly had it out for Trump specifically.
Olbermann has called Trump a Nazi and has called him a “motherf—ker” on Twitter in dozens of tweets.
In fact, Olbermann’s latest book is literally called “Trump is F—king Crazy.”
But they still ended up hiring him anyways, didn’t they?
Only a couple of years ago, ESPN fired known-Republican and former Boston Red Sox pitcher, Curt Schilling, for posting on social media about how he felt about transgender bathroom laws.
He didn’t say anything egregious. It was strictly his view of the situation.
Do you see the obscene and tone-deaf level of pro-liberal hypocrisy that’s going on here?
Trump is one hundred percent correct to demand an apology from Iger because what his employees have said is equal to what Barr Tweeted and sometimes much worse.
If Iger had a spine then he would fire all of those employees and deliver Trump an apology.
