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

Ivan Hill | 07 January, 2018, 01:18

She has a reputation as a smart, funny, sometimes foul-mouthed opinionist, which is one reason ESPN lured her away from Fox Sports and her late night "Garbage Time" show on FS1.

Nolan began working at ESPN in mid-October after a four-year stint at Fox Sports.

Katie Nolan co-hosted on Twitter the ESPN pregame show for an National Football League game on Saturday, three days after using an expletive and calling President Donald Trump a "stupid person".

The policy applies to ESPN employees on social media so Nolan didn't technically violate the guidelines since she was not posting online.

"That's because he's a f-- stupid person", Nolan replied. She previously had tweeted that Trump was a "white supremacist".

India stand firm against disciplined Proteas
South Africa, which was 3-12 and in similar trouble at the start of the day, battled its way to 286 all out in its first innings. Du Plessis' exit was greeted by a running, fist-pumping celebration by India captain Virat Kohli.


The retired Navy SEAL who killed Usama bin Laden slammed two ESPN hosts for diatribes against the president of the United States.

While some people may be offended by the nature of Nolan's comments, it's unlikely that she will face any severe punishment due to the platform and tone of the appearance.

O'Neill also ripped ESPN boxing commentator Max Kellerman for declaring that the Houston Astros baseball team made a "grave error" in accepting a White House invitation. Fast-forward to the 13:00 mark for her Trump comments. Since then she's appeared on a variety of TV shows, including Hill's "The Six" and Dan Le Batard's "Highly Questionable".

Katie Nolan could be putting ESPN's new political policy to the test by calling President Donald Trump a "f-- stupid person". You bet, said sources.
