Fox News host Tucker Carlson bashed ESPN after Jemele Hill, co-host of the network's "SportsCenter" program, called President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump threatens ex-intel official's clearance, citing comments on CNN Protesters topple Confederate monument on UNC campus Man wanted for threatening to shoot Trump spotted in Maryland MORE a "white supremacist" on Twitter. 

"You probably thought ESPN stood for Entertainment Sports Programming Network, increasingly it looks like Endless Stupid Political Nagging," Carlson said. 

In a series of tweets on Monday, Hill called President Trump a "white supremacist" and said he was "unqualified and unfit to be president."

ESPN released a statement Tuesday saying that her comments did not represent the views of the network. "The comments on Twitter from Jemele Hill regarding the president do not represent the position of ESPN. We have addressed this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate," it said.

Carlson called Hill's statements a "bizarre Twitter rant," and asked sports journalist Clay Travis what ESPN meant by their statement. 

"It means that nothing actually happened, because Hill is saying what the higher ups at ESPN believe. I think this goes all the way to the top, Tucker," Travis said.  

Despite ESPN saying that Hill had recognized her comments were inappropriate, she had yet to delete the inflammatory tweets as of Tuesday night.
