Katie Nolan Warned, Not Suspended by ESPN ... For Trump Attack

ESPN's Katie Nolan appeared on the best show on late night, Vice's Desus and Mero, on Wednesday.

Nolan was talking to Desus Nice and The Kid Mero about Trump's thumbs-up hand gesture, which has apparently inspired white supremacists to copy him.

The sports network said it addressed the matter with Nolan, but it will not punish her beyond that, TMZ reported Friday.

Back in October, ESPN's Jemele Hill was suspended for two weeks for "a second violation of ESPN's social media guidelines", after she criticizes President Trump, as well as Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, in a series of tweets. "That's because he is a f**king stupid person".

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

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

ESPN's decision to not suspend Nolan comes less than a month after the network unveiled new political commentary rules which expressly forbid the type of vulgar comments Nolan made against the president. After sharing her thoughts about her new role at ESPN, where she's only been since last October after four years with Fox Sports, the topic quickly switched to Trump. Hill was on the receiving end of tons of backlash, with even the President himself taking to Twitter to pressure the network to fire her. It tells its employees that they "should refrain from overt partisanship or endorsement of particular candidates" and should "avoid personal attacks and inflammatory rhetoric". At the time, ESPN released a statement saying Hill's comments did not represent the position of the company.
