    ESPN said that on-air personality Katie Nolan was reprimanded after she called President Donald Trump a 'f*****g stupid person' while appearing as a guest on a Viceland show.
    Nolan, 30, who was hired by ESPN from FOX Sports in October 2017, made the comment about Trump in jest, while she was a guest on the Viceland's talk show 'Desus and Mero.'
    During the segment, which aired on Wednesday, the trio were jokingly expressing outrage at how the thumbs up and 'okay' hand gesture have been co-opted as signals to white supremacists.

    When Desus Nice pointed out that Trump frequently makes a thumbs up gesture, Nolan burst out with a string of bleeped out expletives, which she then amends to, 'that's because he's a f*****g stupid person.'

    By way of explaining her earlier name calling, Nolan says, 'I'm on a lot of meds right now,' before issuing a phlegmy cough.

    Her 'stupid' comment caused a stir on social media, as observers wondered if she would be suspended over her comment about the president.

    On Friday, an ESPN spokesperson told Fox News, 'We have looked into the totality of Nolan’s comments, they were inappropriate and we have addressed it with her.'

    TMZ reported that Nolan will not be suspended for making the comment.









    Nolan's comment was made while discussing the fact that Trump often uses the thumbs up and 'okay' hand gestures, which have been adopted as signals by white supremacists

    Nolan was likely spared suspension because her comment was made on a talk show, not via social media.


    In the fall, ESPN implemented new social media guidelines for its staff stating that employees should avoid 'personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric' and 'refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates, politicians and political parties,' Sporting News reported.


    The guidelines were issued after SportsCenter host Jemele Hill called Trump a 'white supremacist' on her personal Twitter account in October 2017, leading her to be suspended for two weeks.
    Trump called for Hill to be fired, which ESPN declined to do.

    He's not as stupid as every single person in this country who voted for Hillary Clinton.

    Smart people embrace success, not failure. Smart people embrace personal responsibility, not government solutions. Smart people work and support their families, stupid people protest and destroy property.

    Smart people aren't ashamed to be who they are. Stupid people lie about their political views, like calling themselves moderates when they're flaming liberal democrats.

    Most importantly for this discussion, smart people in the public arena chose what they say, stupid people say what they chose.

    of course if she said this during her 4 years employed by FOX you guys might be slightly bothered...might

    but since she's worn an ESPN badge for 3 months she's now the enemy, a whore, and a senseless bimbo

    she's a dumbass but she's hot so who really cares what she thinks?

    btw, when did giving a thumbs-up become a white supremacist announcement? around the same time as folding your arms became a micro-aggression? maybe we can get some federal intervention to pacify you small government RINO's

    Didn't know her at Fox, don't know her at ESPN, she worked at Fox Sports as opposed to Fox News, I'm sure you know you're putting the square peg into the round hole

    I'm just mocking another celebrity that acted like a clueless classless asshole

    I truly do believe they live in a bubble

    PS: I prefer my beautiful fantasies to STFU, especially in the political arena

    Stupidity can be a turnoff, although ditzy can be hot

    Until today I never heard of Fecies and Sterno or Viceland for that matter.
    Didn't know who Katie Nolan was either. Probably because I never watch Fox
    Sports or ESPN unless they're airing a game I'm interesrted in.

    I'm a big fan of NFL Network especially Total Access. I just wish they would
    rein in Lindsay Rhodes. My favorite is Willie McGinest, very insightful and
    professional.

    GameDay is pretty good except for Sanders when he stops being professional and
    resorts to going all ghetto. If you ball you get the call.

    Of course a Patriot would be insightful and professional
