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

Adjust Comment Print

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.

The Nolan brouhaha is just the latest in a litany of bad press for the sports network. (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.

Nolan spends much of the profanity-filled clip answering questions about her time at ESPN and various other stops in her career before turning at the 13-minute mark to talk about whether certain hand gestures signify some sort of racist code.

Instead coffee chains perpetuated customer confusion that cups are widely recyclable when they are not. Some coffee shops in Britain already provide discounts to customers who bring their own cups.

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. After sharing her thoughts about her new role at ESPN, where she's only been since last October after four years with Fox Sports, the topic quickly switched to Trump. 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. ESPN suspended her on the grounds that she violated the company's social media policy.

After bleeping out initial comments from Nolan regarding the president, she followed it up by calling him a "f*cking stupid person".

Trump called for Hill to be fired, which ESPN declined to do. That led to a back-and-forth between the president and ESPN.
