ESPN's Katie Nolan Calls Donald Trump A 'F*cking Stupid Person'

Back in October, ESPN's Jemele Hill was suspended for two weeks for "a second violation of ESPN's social media guidelines", after she criticizes President Trump, as well as Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, in a series of tweets. "It had been said before, and unfortunately, people comb through your replies now".

ESPN's newest star Katie Nolan called President Donald Trump "a f***ing stupid person" on a podcast for Viceland this week, testing the boundaries of the sports network's policies on political commentary from their on-air employees. Trump had called for her to be fired.

Nolan actually censors herself slightly, saying "back it up" before launching into the comment - one we can assume is actually the more tame version of what she really wanted to say. Longtime ESPN President John Skipper suddenly announced in December that we has resigning from the network due to a substance addiction problem.

ESPN issued revised guidelines on social media and political commentary late a year ago.

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". The guidelines also mandate that "communication with producers and editors must take place prior to commentary on any political and social issues to manage volume and ensure a fair and effective presentation".

Here's the Nolan/Viceland video.

ESPN hired Nolan on October 16.

Would ESPN have preferred Nolan never went there about Trump? Since then she's appeared on a variety of TV shows, including Hill's "The Six" and Dan Le Batard's "Highly Questionable". You bet, said sources.
