KXIP vs KKR Live Score

ESPN's Katie Nolan has ignited some controversy after comment made on Viceland's late-night comedy show "Desus & Mero" on Thursday night.

Less than three months into her ESPN tenure, Katie Nolan already is testing boundaries at a network that desperately wants its personalities to stick to sports.

During a discussion about white supremacists and the hand gestures supposedly associated with them, Nolan remarks (around the 13-minute mark) that President Trump uses the thumbs-up emoji because he's "stupid".

The former "Garbage Time" host then said Trump frequently gives a thumbs up because he's a "stupid person".

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.

United States warns it 'will never accept' a nuclear North Korea
Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Tuesday. "Those are the words of the courageous people of Iran". She also urged the global community to speak out on the unfolding protests in Iran.

"We have looked into the totality of Nolan's comments, they were inappropriate and we have addressed it with her", the rep said.

It's unclear whether or not ESPN will punish Nolan or let the comments slide.

Nolan joined ESPN in October, moving from Fox Sports.

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".

One of Nolan's new ESPN colleagues, Jemele Hill, was suspended in October for two weeks (with pay) for repeatedly violating the network's social media guidelines on Twitter.
