  • HOLLYWOOD CA- JULY 11 ESPN host Jemele Hill at BODY at ESPYS at Avalon

ESPN will NOT suspend Katie Nolan after she called Donald Trump a "f**king stupid person" on VICELAND's "Desus & Mero" talk show on Wednesday. a rep for the network tells TMZ Sports. As Sporting News reports, one of the hosts claimed the "thumbs up" gesture is seen by some as advocating "white power".

Less than three months into her ESPN tenure, Katie Nolan already is testing boundaries at a network that desperately wants its personalities to stick to sports.

Nolan made the comments with a bit of laughter, but they still challenge the political policy from ESPN.

Desus said the thumbs-up is now associated with white supremacy because President Trump often uses it in photo-ops. The first insult she used for him is bleeped out, but then she added that he is a "fucking stupid person".

Jon Gruden Expected To Become Head Coach Of Raiders
The Raiders must comply with the "Rooney Rule" and interview at least one minority candidate during the hiring process. Gruden's Raiders candidacy also complicates his current job status as Monday Night Football color commentator.

The summit came on the heels of ESPN's Jemele Hill calling President Donald Trump a White Supremacist and calling for people to boycott advertisers of Jerry Jones and the Cowboys after he threatened to not play anyone who dared to disrespect the National Anthem.

Nolan began working at ESPN in mid-October after a four-year stint at Fox Sports. Hill was suspended for two weeks in October for violating the network's social media guidelines.

The revamped guidelines say employees "should refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates, politicians or political parties" while avoiding "personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric". Her new podcast for ESPN is expected to launch on January 10.
