@JimmyTraina, tweeting after ESPN announced that it has suspended anchor Jemele Hill for violating its social media policy. After Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said players would be benched for “disrespecting the flag,” Hill tweeted that fans could boycott Cowboys advertisers to show disapproval of Jones.

I'm confused, because when Trump said to boycott NFL stuff, it was cool but when Jemele Hill said to do it, it wasn't cool anymore. Weird

Being saved by a lesbian cop has not changed Rep. Scalise’s views.
Steve Scalise was saved by a lesbian. But once he got his step back. He limps to speak to a group that want to take her rights away
