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. Nolan at first says something that is bleeped out entirely - a curious move, considering the un-bleeped profanity that surrounds her comments - before saying clearly that Trump is always giving a thumbs-up because he's "a f-- stupid person".
The conversation was largely apolitical, but at one point they got on a tangent about Trump's common hand gestures. The suggestion was made that a thumbs-up means "white power" and that Trump often uses it.
But her most interesting moment in the interview came when she called Donald Trump a "fu*king stupid person", a brief correction from what she initially called the 45th President of the United States.
