ESPN’s Hill on Trump Candidacy: ‘Why Are We Taking Him Seriously?’

On Friday’s “His & Hers” on ESPN2, show co-host Jemele Hill reacted to Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s showing at Thursday’s GOP Debate, asking, “Why are we taking him seriously?”

Hill said she is just “amazed” watching Trump and feels like his candidacy is just an “elaborate con.”

“I feel like we’re all being tricked right now, like this is an elaborate con. That’s what it feels like to me, like are y’all serious? We’re actually giving some sense of credibility? He will say something incredibly offensive and ridiculous in one part of the statement and in the middle part, he will say something that he knows everybody will cheer and then he will go back to being ridiculous and offensive and then you’re like, ‘What about those two things on the side?'”
