Big News

It was just yesterday that Donald Trump returned to his harmful rhetoric regarding Charlottesville. Even so, CNN reports Trump has signed a resolution condemning white supremacy into law, claiming zero tolerance for bigotry.

“No matter the color of our skin or our ethnic heritage, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God,” Trump said.

The resolution was passed by Congress earlier this week.

Big Facts

ESPN allegedly tried to take Jemele Hill off the air and replace her with another Black host on Wednesday, but her colleagues, including co-host Michael Smith, weren’t about to let that happen. According to ThinkProgress, two sources familiar with the situation say producers tapped Michael Eaves and Elle Duncan to sit in for Hill just hours before Wednesday evening’s show. ESPN denied the report, however.

“Yesterday was a hard and unusual day, with a number of people interpreting the day without a full picture that happened,” Rob King, senior vice president of news and information at SportsCenter, told ThinkProgress on Thursday. “In the end, ultimately, Michael and Jemele appearing on the show last night and doing the show the way they did is the outcome we always desired.”

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz added after ThinkProgress‘ article was published: “We never asked any other anchors to do last night’s show. Period.”

Big Lies

Floyd Mayweather’s on his BS again, this time standing behind Trump’s “grab her by the p***y” comments that had many positive he definitely wouldn’t win the election before, you know… he unfortunately actually did.

According to an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Mayweather seems to feel Trump’s disgusting remarks are reflective of how a “real man” talks. Oh? Okay. Can’t say this comes as much of a surprise, especially since he’s openly supported Trump in the past. (Like…remember how excited he was about his inauguration?)
