Former ESPN Host Jemele Hill Calls for Trump's Assassination?

Former ESPN host and current The Atlantic writer Jemele Hill apparently made a reference to the assassination of the president during ht State of the Union.

According to Mediaite:

Jemele Hill, a staff writer at The Atlantic, tweeted Tuesday that instead of shouting “whose mans is this”, as one tweet suggested, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) should shout “GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET.”

“GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET” is a reference to the assassination of Malcolm X by three Nation of Islam members in 1965. The phrase was shouted just before he was killed with a double-barrel shotgun and a handguns.

Hill was subsequently criticized for making the reference:
  Hill has been a known anti-Trump figure and was fired from ESPN for unprofessional conduct. Apparently, this is the new form of journalism.
