“We couldn’t be more pleased to welcome someone of Katie’s talent to the NFL,” said Miller. “Her communications vision, world-class strategic instincts, and deep understanding of today’s dynamic media, digital and cultural landscape make her an excellent fit for the League and our goals.”
NBC Sports explained that the term “reputational issues” actually just means that Hill will essentially serve as a “fixer.” She’ll solve already-existing problems while also keeping new ones from popping up.
NFL Brags About Hill’s Time In Obama Administration
The NFL was quick to brag about Hill’s “accomplishments” as a member of the Obama a administration, saying:
From 2014 to 2017, Hill served in the Obama Administration, first as National Press Secretary for health care at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, then joining the White House in 2015 as Assistant Press Secretary and spokesperson for a variety of policy areas, including health care, education, veterans’ affairs, the Council on Women and Girls, and sports.
She also has worked on Capitol Hill and at a public relations firm. She was honored in 2016 as one of Out Magazine’s “OUT100” LGBTQ leaders, alongside her White House colleagues, for their work to advance equality.
In case you had any doubts about how political the NFL has become, this shows you once and for all that the league is now a tool for the “woke” left.
It doesn’t matter to the NFL that millions of conservatives are football fans as well.
All all they care about is using the sport to spread liberal values and garner more power for Democrats.
