As Twitchy readers know, Jemele Hill made some ugly, disparaging comments about the president and Kid Rock being white supremacists on Twitter. And even with much public outrage, ESPN only went so far as to apologize for her comments and claim they had spoken with the anchor.
Somehow that was supposed to prove they gave a damn about dealing with her repugnant behavior.
To add to the ridiculousness, Colin Kaepernick sent his support to Jemele on Twitter:
We are with you @jemelehill ✊🏾

Seems Colin does have a LOT of free time these days.
So glad you took time out of your busy @NFL schedule to….

Who is this "we" you are speaking of?
— FloridaCrusader (@desjax) September 13, 2017
Colin and the voices in his head maybe?
Him and 15 other people trying to stay relevant during the NFL season. Crazy he's compared to Ali for kneeling for rights already afforded.

Oh yeah, that’s it.
A radical unemployed quarterback who is 3-16 in last 19 starts sides with radical annoying TV host with no ratings. pic.twitter.com/9NAKlFFyI0

Sounds like a failed comedy on Fox.
Who's we? All the clueless idiots who don't know the meaning of our National Anthem?

We KNEW it.
Wow. This is so stupid and I don't even like Trump.

And that’s the really embarrassing thing here, even people who dislike Trump are sick and tired of the constant unproven accusations, especially from a sports anchor.
Maybe just stick to sports, ESPN?
