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

During an appearance on Viceland's "Desus & Mero", Nolan called President Donald Trump a "f*cking stupid person".

Nolan was talking about hand gestures and memes that could be associated with white supremacists with the hosts Desus Nice and The Kid Mero.

That vague statement doesn't necessarily mean that Nolan hasn't been suspended or punished, as ESPN does not make all of its disciplinary actions public.

"That's because he's a f-- stupid person", said Nolan.

"I'm on a lot of meds right now", she said on the show immediately after blurting out the insult. And the Emmy-winning Nolan, who joined ESPN from rival Fox Sports three months ago, was clearly having fun.

Welsh ministers are considering asking for powers to tax the cups and other plastics that are hard to recycle. When environmentalists first mooted the idea of a levy on plastic bags, plenty of eyes rolled.

Nolan was likely spared suspension because her comment was made on a talk show, not via social media.

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".

On Friday, an ESPN spokesperson told Fox News, 'We have looked into the totality of Nolan's comments, they were inappropriate and we have addressed it with her'.

In October, before the new guidelines were released, ESPN suspended "SportsCenter" personality Jemele Hill for what the network deemed a second recent violation of its former social media policy.

Trump called for Hill to be fired, which ESPN declined to do. His work has been featured on Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com, FOXSports.com, CBSSports.com and many others.
