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


Katie Nolan could be putting ESPN's new political policy to the test.

Nolan said that Trump was a "fucking stupid person" on Viceland's "Desus & Mero" talk show on Wednesday. The suggestion was made that a thumbs-up means "white power" and that Trump often uses it.

Appearing Wednesday night on the almost two-year-old Vice Media channel, Nolan and the comedy duo of Desus Nice and The Kid Mero were discussing hand gestures and memes that could be associated with white supremacists.

Tamil Nadu: Govt appeals transport employees to come back for work
The government has invited those possessing valid driving licences to approach local bus depots to be used as substitute drivers. The government just about managed to operate bus services with a skeletal fleet that AIADMK-affiliated unions were left to run.

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

Nolan clamored to cover up her harsh words, saying she was on "medicine" because she had the flu.

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

ESPN declined to comment to Sporting News about Nolan, but is known to handle controversial situations on a case-by-case basis.

ESPN anchor Jemele Hill criticized Trump in tweets in September.

A rep for the network told Fox News: "We have looked into the totality of Nolan's comments, they were inappropriate, and we have addressed it with her".

Jon Gruden has hilarious response to question about Raiders HC job

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