Who Is Katy Tur? NBC Journalist Discloses Unwanted Kiss From Trump

Trump tweets out book reviews for 'know nothing' authors

Finally, I don't know if Jemele Hill is woke or not, but what I do know is that she gave her honest and heartfelt opinion about the president, and now she is getting vilified for it.

Tur was one of Trump's favorite targets on the campaign trail; he derided her as "little Katy" and called her a "third rate reporter" during a rally, after which Tur said the Secret Service walked her to her vehicle.

Tur, 33, adds she fears Trump will be in office 27 years from now at age 98 because he'll find a way to avoid term limits which say presidents can only serve two terms. "My eyes widen. My body freezes".

The incident happened before one of Trump's appearances on MSNBC's "Morning Joe". She was so great. "Just kiss. I don't even wait". NBC News later relayed Tur's account of the campaign event in a news report titled "Black Lives Matter protesters cut off Donald Trump in North Carolina". Before joining the NBC family, Katy worked as a journalist for various networks such as KTLA in Los Angeles, News 12 Brooklyn, New York's WPIX and FOX 5. He specifically called her out during numerous rallies, referring to her as "little Katy" and a "third-rate reporter".

'Fascinating to watch people writing books and major articles about me and yet they know nothing about me & have zero access, ' Trump wrote Tuesday morning. All of this experience eventually led her to cover the Trump campaign in 2016.

Trump castigated Tur in a December 2015 speech in Charleston over perceived inaccurate coverage of a previous campaign rally that was interrupted by protestors.

Tur completed her graduation from the University of California, Santa Barbara, with a B.A.in philosophy and she did not have a background in journalism or communications.

"I've gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her", he said on the tape. "It allows me to ask questions, and that is what I do every day", Tur told NBC. "I wasn't pigeon-holed to a certain subject".
