WARNING GRAPHIC LANGUAGE: ESPN's Katie Nolan calls Donald Trump a 'stupid person

Not Released

Katie Nolan co-hosted on Twitter the ESPN pregame show for an National Football League game on Saturday, three days after using an expletive and calling President Donald Trump a "stupid person".

Desus said the thumbs-up is now associated with white supremacy because President Trump often uses it in photo-ops.

The Nolan brouhaha is just the latest in a litany of bad press for the sports network. A few seconds earlier she had referred to Trump in language that was bleeped out.

The policy applies to ESPN employees on social media so Nolan didn't technically violate the guidelines since she was not posting online.

ESPN viewers quickly took to social media questioning the company's position on Nolan's comments. That policy stems from the controversy surrounding Jemele Hill, who called Trump a white supremacist on Twitter and was later suspended for discussing a boycott of the National Football League advertisers. One of her offenses was for criticizing Trump. Longtime ESPN President John Skipper suddenly announced in December that we has resigning from the network due to a substance addiction problem.

Nolan also joked about Patriots QB Tom Brady not being smart and that she was on a lot of meds for a head cold. It did revise its social media guidelines, imploring its staff to steer clear of politics.

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

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

The exchange comes at the 13:30 mark in the video. Since then she's appeared on a variety of TV shows, including Hill's "The Six" and Dan Le Batard's "Highly Questionable".

At ESPN, apparently anything goes as long as the vitriol is directed at President Trump. You bet, said sources.
