The Irony of F**k It Mode

When ESPN on-air personality Jemele Hill hit fuck it and told the Twitterverse how she really feels about Donald J. Trump, the 45th president of the United States and leader of the free world, the fervor that which she used to express her feelings, and the subsequent public backlash, must’ve given the ESPN brass fits. The company not only distanced themselves from Hill, they went a step further saying that she “recognizes that her actions were inappropriate.”

Don't get me wrong, I really don't want to come off as being in defense of Hill’s comments but the level of appropriateness commonly associated with the Office of the President sorta kinda went out the window when the administration that:

Champions banning immigrants based on their religion

Conveniently ignores white supremacists

Colluded with a foreign government

Allows it’s leader to use social media as a tool for official communication tactics

Won.

Of course the word, “inappropriate” has undergone a bit of a redefinition over the past year.

We created this environment together, or divided, as a country. We wanted this. Why are we up in arms now? We have to make up our minds, because I thought the circus was in town. At least for the next 4 years.

I wonder how Hill to move on from this. I’m sure an apology on her behalf will not be in order. Will she be fired and ushered into a realm of public martyrdom? Which would be ironic because, after all, the energy she used to express her feelings towards the president mirrors that of he himself.
