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

YouTube

Unlike their decision with Jemele Hill, a rep for ESPN told TMZ.com that leading sports network will not be suspending Katie Nolan for her comments.

Rob O'Neill said on "Fox and Friends" that if one was reading Nolan's lips while she was bleeped out, they would see her make a slur against handicapped people while insulting Trump - before essentially asking for a do-over of the comment.

Nolan was likely spared suspension because her comment was made on a talk show, not via social media. Many accused ESPN of being hypocritical by being selective with whom they discipline and how they're disciplined.

"That's because he's a f-- stupid person", said Nolan.

Nolan hosts digital shows for ESPN, including the Snapchat version of "SportsCenter" and a podcast.

Justin Timberlake Reveals His New Album In The Woodsiest Way Possible
The Friends with Benefits star, removed a piece of Jackson's outfit during his "Rock Your Body" lyrics. Actually, looks like the singer is skipping over country and going straight to woodsman.

Her "stupid" comment caused a stir on social media, as observers wondered if she would be suspended over her comment about the president.

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". She previously had tweeted that Trump was a "white supremacist". Trump had called for her to be fired. And given the late night comedy setting and the irreverent nature of her entire appearance, the sense is the brass in Bristol will give her a pass.

The exchange comes at the 13:30 mark in the video. Since then she's appeared on a variety of TV shows, including Hill's "The Six" and Dan Le Batard's "Highly Questionable".

Would ESPN have preferred Nolan never went there about Trump?

"This has nothing to do with where on the political spectrum you fall", Kellerman said.
