White House decree: Criticizing Trump is a firable offense.

Q Yes, you mentioned a couple times today -- you’ve sort of emphasized diversity in the West Wing. You talked about the President being very clear after Charlottesville in denouncing all hate. I just wanted to read a comment from an influential African American sportscaster from ESPN yesterday, who said, “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself with other white supremacists. His rise is a direct result of white supremacy, period. He’s unqualified and unfit to be President.”

Why do you think -- do you have a reaction to that? And is the President aware of that comment?

MS. SANDERS: I’m not sure if he’s aware, but I think that's one of the more outrageous comments that anyone could make, and certainly something that I think is a fire-able offense by ESPN.
