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".

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".

Nolan was hired by ESPN in October after previously working for Fox Sports.
