Not sure whether Jemele Hill likes all the limelight she is getting for her controversial Twitter comments about President Trump being a “white supremacist,” but people sure are talking about them. From the White House Press Secretary to former baseball star with both the New York Mets and Yankees Darryl Strawberry, people are weighing in on these highly charged words.
Strawberry, a former contestant on the Celebrity Apprentice in 2010, spoke on Fox News’ “Varney & Co.” He previously had established a friendship with Trump and passionately defended him on Wednesday. When he was asked for his thoughts on the ESPN host’s tweets about Trump, the former baseball star said:
“I think no one should call anyone anything. President Trump, he’s a great man to me. He was always gracious to me. I really love him, his family, I was on his show and he’s always been kind to me… I’ve known him quite well and every time I’ve seen him and been around him he’s always been so gracious with me and I’m always grateful for that.”
Strawberry continued, “I never want to sit and point fingers at someone like the President of the United States. He’s got a job to do and we all need to pray for him and we all need to support him, that’s what we need to do. A lot of people say things because they have their own issues, and they are hurting inside.”
