Former MLB pitcher and ESPN commentator Curt Schilling, who is currently suspended for comments he made online, waded into hot water again with a Facebook post defending Ben Carson’s comments about electing a Muslim president.

Mr. Schilling deleted the post on Monday, but not before USA Today was able to take a screen grab.

The post contained a shared meme from the Political Follies Facebook group questioning the public’s reaction to comments made by Mr. Carson, a retired neurosurgeon and GOP presidential candidate. It features an image of the Twin Towers burning on 9/11 and asks, “How did we get from this … to being pissed off because [Mr. Carson] said he doesn’t think we should have a Muslim president? Have Americans completely lost their minds?”

Neither Mr. Schilling nor ESPN has acknowledged the now-deleted post, the Daily Caller reported. The former baseball pro was suspended by the network last month after tweeting a picture comparing ISIS, or the Islamic State, to Nazi Germany. He said Sunday that he will return to the network as a studio analyst in the postseason.
