Fireable Offense or Protected Free Speech?

ESPN anchor Jemele Hill is under scrutiny for tweeting "Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/other white supremacists." The President has called for an apology from ESPN and his White House Press Secretary suggested Hill’s tweets were a ‘fireable offense”,” highly inappropriate and ESPN needs to take action". The network released a statement that Hill's tweets "do not represent the position of ESPN”.

What's your take? Fireable Offense or Protected Free Speech?

Protected free speech just like Rush Limbaugh,Sean Hannity and all of the racist right wing nuts that said so many negative and offensive lies about Obama

The President has broken a law essentially states certain government employees -- including the president, vice president and "any other executive branch employee" -- are prohibited from influencing the employment decisions or practices of a private entity (such as ESPN) "solely on the basis of partisan political affiliation."
