Hill attracted attention last year and was briefly suspended for opinionated messages on social media, including a tweet that referenced President Donald Trump as a "white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists."

She also targeted Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after he stated that players who disrespect the flag would not play for his team. Her suspension came after she tweeted that fans who disagree with Jones should target the team's advertisers and not buy the team's merchandise....

Was she hired by one of the “Globalist Billionaires” to campaign against President Trump full time?

I think it MIGHT finally be sinking in with some companies that making political statements which offend half of your customers really doesn't constitute a smart business model.

Maybe some ESPN honcho had an epiphany one night …

Waitaminnit … Our network televises sporting events and reports about sports figures and the outcome of sports contests … How come we hate the President?

Being a "politically-active company" whose business has absolutely nothing to do with politics just strikes me as stupid pandering.
