Katie Nolan comments that Trump is a 'stupid person' were 'inappropriate'

Katie Nolan comments that Trump is a 'stupid person' were 'inappropriate'

While appearing on Viceland's talk show "Desus and Mero", the 30-year-old sports talker called POTUS a "f-ing stupid person".

Nolan made the comments with a bit of laughter, but they still challenge the political policy from ESPN.

A conversation about hand gestures often associated with white supremacists prompted the comment, with Nolan also referring to the President by another offensive term that was later bleeped out of the aired episode.

Jon Gruden To Be Introduced As Raiders Head Coach Next Week

The revamped guidelines say employees "should refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates, politicians or political parties" while avoiding "personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric".

While some people may be offended by the nature of Nolan's comments, it's unlikely that she will face any severe punishment due to the platform and tone of the appearance.

But her most interesting moment in the interview came when she called Donald Trump a "fu*king stupid person", a brief correction from what she initially called the 45th President of the United States. She hosted the late-night "Garbage Time" program on Fox Sports 1, earning plaudits for her free-spirited style and an Emmy for Outstanding Social TV Experience in 2016.

In December, ESPN's front-facing employees attended a mandatory meeting at the company's headquarters in Bristol, Conn., to discuss the network's future and review its new policies on social media and political commentary.

Sporting News reached out to ESPN, which declined to comment.

Hill made her comments in October, 2017, and was suspended by the network.
