In a Tuesday morning Twitterstorm, President Donald Trump attacked ESPN reporter Jemele Hill and accused the network of losing ratings due to her.
"With Jemele Hill at the mike [sic], it is no wonder ESPN ratings have 'tanked,' in fact, tanked so badly it is the talk of the industry!" Trump tweeted, presumably meaning mic for microphone.

The internet was quick to blast Trump for attacking Hill, who was recently suspended by ESPN for violating the company's social media policy.
