Katie Nolan comments that Trump is a 'stupid person' were 'inappropriate'

Katie Nolan could be putting ESPN's new political policy to the test.

Katie Nolan, a recent hire at ESPN, appeared on the talk show Desus & Mero on Viceland on Wednesday night. The suggestion was made that a thumbs-up means "white power" and that Trump often uses it.

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

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.

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.

In a statement issued on the company's website, Sears Holdings plans to close another 100 stores after shuttering dozens in 2017. Customers can use the store locator function on our web sites to find the location of their nearest Kmart and Sears stores.

Nolan mentioned that she had the flu when she made the comments.

The guidelines were issued after SportsCenter host Jemele Hill called Trump a "white supremacist" on her personal Twitter account in October 2017, leading her to be suspended for two weeks.

ESPN has told its personalities to refrain from commenting publicly on political matters that have no relation to sports, and to be respectful when commenting.

At ESPN, apparently anything goes as long as the vitriol is directed at President Trump.

Her "stupid" comment caused a stir on social media, as observers wondered if she would be suspended over her comment about the president. Her new podcast for ESPN is expected to launch on January 10.
