ESPN at it again: Trump's 'af***ing stupid person'

07 January 2018

ESPN has opted to give host Katie Nolan a warning rather than a suspension for her vulgar comments this week about President Donald Trump.

Katie Nolan, a recent hire at ESPN, appeared on the talk show Desus & Mero on Viceland on Wednesday night.

The sports network said it addressed the matter with Nolan, but it will not punish her beyond that, TMZ reported Friday.

"That's because he's a f-- stupid person", Nolan replied. (Watch the video below.) During the same bit, she joked Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is probably "not that bright" and that she's on a lot of "meds" for a head cold.

O'Neill also ripped ESPN boxing commentator Max Kellerman for declaring that the Houston Astros baseball team made a "grave error" in accepting a White House invitation. And the Emmy-winning Nolan, who joined ESPN from rival Fox Sports three months ago, was clearly having fun.

The policy applies to ESPN employees on social media so Nolan didn't technically violate the guidelines since she was not posting online. Since joining ESPN, she has appeared on shows such as "Highly Questionable" with Dan Le Batard and one episode of a podcast that has yet to be officially named.

Trump called for Hill to be fired, which ESPN declined to do. Longtime ESPN President John Skipper suddenly announced in December that we has resigning from the network due to a substance addiction problem.

The extended interview is up on YouTube, and at the 13:30 mark, when they're talking about Trump's propensity for giving thumbs ups, Nolan says the line about Trump.
