‘N****r, get your hand out my pocket!…’

(Michael Barnes, Liberty Headlines) Former ESPN personality Jemele Hill is in hot water over her latest tweet defaming President Donald Trump—even the Secret Service is taking notice.

On Tuesday evening during the president’s State of the Union address to the nation, Hill tweeted about assassinating Trump.

In a now deleted exchange, a comedian named Desus Nice wrote on Twitter, “please let @AOC yell out ‘whose mans is this.’”

The tweet, tagging the account of socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio–Cortez, D-N.Y., referenced a social-media slang phrase meant to imply that Ocasio–Cortez should publicly embarrass Trump for acting foolish.


In response to the tweet, Hill wrote, “Nah, she gotta yell: GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET.”

That phrase, more accurately “N****r, get your hand out my pocket!” was shouted moments before Malcolm X was assassinated—something Hill, an African American activist, is quite aware of.

In 1965, Malcolm X was speaking to a group of about 400 people when someone in the audience shouted the phrase. In what’s believed to have been a coordinated distraction, Malcolm X’s bodyguards approached the man, leaving Malcolm X exposed. Three assassins then opened fire and killed him.

The Secret Service told the Washington Examiner that it knew about Hill’s assassination tweet but declined to say how it was pursuing the matter.

“While the Secret Service is aware of the subject’s comments, we cannot confirm or comment on the absence or existence of specific investigations. We can say, however, the Secret Service investigates all threats related to our protectees,” said a representative of the agency.

Amid the deserved uproar over her tweet, Hill issued an apology.

Hill, however, has a long history of tweeting and saying incredibly controversial remarks about the president, none of which would be remotely acceptable for a so-called journalist to make toward previous presidents.

On Sept. 11, 2017, Hill tweeted the Trump was a “white supremacist.”

She also said that ignoring Trump’s supposed white supremacy is the height of “white privilege,” and recently reaffirmed her beliefs on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

“Show me the lie,” she said.

Last week, in the lead-up to the NFL’s Super Bowl, Hill, who now works at the liberal literary magazine The Atlantic, accused Trump of “weaponizing” sports.

In a nonsensical interview on NBC’s “Late Show with Seth Meyers,” Hill blamed Trump for politicizing the NFL while she took credit for doing so herself, and then denied it at other points in the exchange.

“There was this idea that people I think had whether it was true or not that, you know, sports fans — that was the place you could go to get away from it all, and now that doesn’t seem to be the case,” she told Meyers.

Last year, Hill urged a boycott of the Dallas Cowboys because owner Jerry Jones told his players to stand for the national anthem.

“Stop watching and buying their merchandise,” she tweeted to 2.6 million followers.

ESPN eventually fired Hill for poor performance and bad publicity, but not before Trump got a word in of his own.
