New ESPN star Katie Nolan jokingly called President Donald Trump a "f-- stupid person" this week on Viceland's "Desus & Mero" late night comedy show, less than a month after the company revised its social media guidelines, imploring its staff to steer clear of politics.
Nolan was talking to Desus Nice and The Kid Mero about Trump's thumbs-up hand gesture, which has apparently inspired white supremacists to copy him.
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.
The former "Garbage Time" host then said Trump frequently gives a thumbs up because he's a "stupid person".More news: Dimitrov and Svitolina advance in Brisbane
"We have looked into the totality of Nolan's comments, they were inappropriate and we have addressed it with her", Jay Jay Nesheim, ESPN's senior director of communications, said in an email to The Post.
TMZ reported that Nolan will not be suspended for making the comment.
ESPN anchor Jemele Hill criticized Trump in tweets in September.
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. Since joining ESPN, she has appeared on shows such as "Highly Questionable" with Dan Le Batard and one episode of a podcast that has yet to be officially named.
