KXIP vs KKR Live Score

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".

She also appeared to use another offensive word to describe Trump, but that word was bleeped out of the broadcast.

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

The network said it has spoken to Nolan about her appearance on the show. Hill was suspended for two weeks in October for violating the network's social media guidelines.

Late a year ago, SportsCenter anchor Jemele Hill was suspended for multiple violations of the network's social media policy after criticizing Trump and referring to him as a white supremacist.


Nolan was hired by ESPN in October after previously working for Fox Sports. She previously had tweeted that Trump was a "white supremacist".

In the fall, ESPN implemented new social media guidelines for its staff stating that employees should avoid "personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric" and 'refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates, politicians and political parties, ' Sporting News reported. In 2016 she won an Emmy award for her Fox Sports show "Garbage Time".

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

"ESPN is a journalistic organization - not a political organization". "ESPN's focus is sports. It can sometimes be hard to control impulses or ignore trolls, but that's what we're called to do for each other".
