ESPN's Katie Nolan Won't Be Suspended For Trump Comments
Jan 06, 2018, 02:14
Nolan said that Trump was a "fucking stupid person" on Viceland's "Desus & Mero" talk show on Wednesday. During a discussion about memes and hand gestures that could be interpreted as white supremacist signs, the conversation turned to the thumbs-up symbol.
The network said it has spoken to Nolan about her appearance on the show. "Back it up. Back it up".
But her most interesting moment in the interview came when she called Donald Trump a "fu*king stupid person", a brief correction from what she initially called the 45th President of the United States.
Nolan also joked about Patriots QB Tom Brady not being smart and that she was on a lot of meds for a head cold. Nolan joins ESPN on October 16 and will appear across multiple platforms in a variety of projects. In 2016 she won an Emmy award for her Fox Sports show "Garbage Time".
Last month, ESPN made it clear to each and everyone of their employees at their home base in Bristol, Connecticut during a two-hour summit that was about two main topics: 1. Hill was on the receiving end of tons of backlash, with even the President himself taking to Twitter to pressure the network to fire her. It did revise its social media guidelines, imploring its staff to steer clear of politics. It tells its employees that they "should refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates" and should "avoid personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric". Fast-forward to the 13:00 mark for her Trump comments.
Nolan was hired by ESPN in October after previously working for Fox Sports.
