TV personality Katie Nolan attends AT&T's celebration of the Launch of DIRECTV NOW at Venue 57 on November 28, 2016 in New York City.

During an appearance on Viceland's "Desus & Mero", Nolan called President Donald Trump a "f*cking stupid person".

Nolan and the program's hosts discussed whether the thumbs-up sign is a "white power" symbol.

The Haqqani Network operates in Afghanistan from safe havens across the border in Pakistan , targeting US-led worldwide coalition forces.

Nolan also joked about Patriots QB Tom Brady not being smart and that she was on a lot of meds for a head cold. She then catches herself, apparently realizing she's said something she should not have, and says "That's because he's a f-ing stupid person".

Recent ESPN hire Katie Nolan blasted President Trump with some pretty disparaging remarks on Wednesday night, and her new employer is not happy.

ESPN's new guidelines say employees "should refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates, politicians or political parties" while avoiding "personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric".

North Korea nuclear bomb test accidentally destroys a City
But more recent missile tests have been more successful and have travelled long distances, with some flying over parts of Japan. If true, the report suggests the dangers of North Korean missile tests to countries beneath their flight paths, such as Japan.

While Nolan's comments occured on a talk show and not on Twitter or Facebook, her attempt to quickly explain away her outburst may have been due in part to ESPN's social media guidelines for journalists, implemented after fellow network employee Jemele Hill called Trump a "white supremacist" on Twitter.

TMZ reported that Nolan will not be suspended for making the comment. Fast-forward to the 13:00 mark for her Trump comments. That policy stems from the controversy surrounding Jemele Hill, who called Trump a white supremacist on Twitter and was later suspended for discussing a boycott of the National Football League advertisers.

Would ESPN have preferred Nolan never went there about Trump?
