  • Not Released

Nolan appeared on Viceland's "Desus & Mero" comedy show Wednesday night when she made the comment.

Whether Nolan faces any punishment remains to be seen and ESPN declined comment to Sporting News.

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". And the Emmy-winning Nolan, who joined ESPN from rival Fox Sports three months ago, was clearly having fun.

In October, before the new guidelines were released, ESPN suspended "SportsCenter" personality Jemele Hill for what the network deemed a second recent violation of its former social media policy. She previously had tweeted that Trump was a "white supremacist". Longtime ESPN President John Skipper suddenly announced in December that we has resigning from the network due to a substance addiction problem.

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.

ESPN issued revised guidelines on social media and political commentary late previous year.

It stars Neil Patrick Harris , Malina Weissman , Presley Smith , Patrick Warburton , K. Todd Freeman , Lucy Punch , Nathan Fillion , Tony Hale , Sara Rue and Roger Bart .

TMZ reported that Nolan will not be suspended for making the comment.

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".

Here's the Nolan/Viceland video.

ESPN hired Nolan on October 16.

Would ESPN have preferred Nolan never went there about Trump?
