MSNBC’s Katy Tur: Trump ‘Endangered My Life’
MSNBC’s Katy Tur is releasing a book called “Unbelievable,” and an excerpt released on Tuesday reveals that she won’t hold back her anti-Trump bias.
The excerpt describes Tur, who covered Trump’s 2016 campaign, reacting to the news that he was going to win the presidential election.
“The room goes wavy. My stomach churns,” Tur says, recalling her friend telling her that Trump would continue to do rallies after his victory. “I can feel the bile in the back of my throat.”
“I’ve heard him insult a war hero, brag about grabbing women by the pussy, denigrate the judicial system, demonize immigrants, fight with the pope, doubt the democratic process, advocate torture and war crimes, tout the size of his junk in a presidential debate, trash the media, and endanger my life,” Tur continues.
Tur claims to understand the psyche of the average Trump voter, describing the joblessness, the opioid crisis, and other rural, blue-collar issues, but then turns around and accuses them of “protest[ing] the very notion of objective truth.”
“Does anyone really believe he’ll respect term limits? I have a vision of myself at sixty, Trump at a hundred, in some midwestern convention hall. The children of his 2016 supporters are spitting on me,” she says.
If this excerpt is any indication, Tur’s book is sure to be a doozy.
