Unlike their decision with Jemele Hill, a rep for ESPN told that leading sports network will not be suspending Katie Nolan for her comments.

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

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".

Nolan was hired by ESPN in October after previously working for Fox Sports.
