ESPN Anchor Sage Steele Off the Air After Questioning Vaccines and Obama

After comments made by Sage Steele, a ESPN reporter, she will not be on-air after making remarks about former President Barack Obama’s COVID vaccination mandate. 

NPR reports today:

Sports anchor Sage Steele is off the air at ESPN after she called vaccine mandates “sick” and “scary” and questioned why former President Barack Obama identifies as Black even though he was raised by his white mother.

Steele commented last week on the podcast Jay Cutler’s Uncut, and her removal from the air was reported by Front Office Sports.

In a statement, the network said: “At ESPN, we embrace different points of view – dialogue and discussion makes this place great. However, the network stated that it expects those views to be respectfully expressed, within our core values and our internal policies. We are having direct conversations with Sage and those conversations will remain private.”

ESPN also posted a statement by Steele. “I know my recent comments created controversy for the company, and I apologize,” she said. “We are in the midst of an extremely challenging time that impacts all of us, and it’s more critical than ever that we communicate constructively and thoughtfully.”

If she would have called President Trump a Russian puppet and those who don’t take the COVID vaccine losers, she would be fine and maybe get a raise.  This is a country in serious trouble.
