"The athletes are dragging us here".

Now I'm not saying Hill deserves to be fired or to have any sort of discipline brought down upon her. "I don't know how big a percentage, but if anyone wants to ignore that fact, they're blind".

But what does the president have to do with any debate around sports or the culture of sports via figures like Kaepernick these days?

The subsequent conversation eventually shifted to Trump.

She offered no concrete proof that the president is a white supremacist - just a bunch of disgusting, ad hominem attacks. She wrote: "He is not a leader".

"Trump is the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime". She has also hosted Numbers Will Never Lie and His and Hers.

Much later, Reggie Miller, now an analyst for TNT and current Chicago Bulls guard Wade chimed in with their own tweets rallying around Hill.

But the decision to suspend Cohn seems harsh given the recent events involving another ESPN on-air personality.

In the Twitter statement, ESPN wrote: 'The comments on Twitter Jemele Hill regarding the president do not represent the position of ESPN.

While the secretary did not directly advocate that ESPN terminate Hill, she made it clear that she believes the host committed an offense that should have been met with such action.

Jemele Hill (L) and Michael Smith at the Slam Dunk Contest during the 2017 BET Experience at Los Angeles Convention Center on June 24, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. Hell, we won't even ask her to take down the tweets in question.

The comments outraged Trump supporters, many of whom noted that ESPN fired analyst and former Major League Baseball pitcher Curt Schilling over an anti-transgender Facebook post a year ago.

Others criticized Kaepernick for supporting Hill.

According to The Daily Beast, Hill said at a conference in June that mixing sports and politics are unavoidable in today's hot political climate. Glad you could live with voting for him. Many said ESPN should remove Hill from her job.

Play-by-play announcer Robert Lee, a Syracuse University alum, was moved from calling a Virginia football game earlier this month.
