The more people he insults, the better he does, sadly.

“Little Katy, third-rate journalist,” Trump declared during a bitter peroration about the “absolute scum” who allegedly populate the news media and report “dishonestly” on his triumphal march to the White House.

The real estate mogul/reality show star punctuated his insults by calling out “Katy Tur!” and pointing her out to the crowd gathered in a cavernous space inside the USS Yorktown, a World War II-vintage aircraft carrier docked in Mount Pleasant.

Tur’s offense?

Tur had tweeted from the Dec. 4 rally that the candidate “ends speech abruptly and leaves stage” after he was repeatedly interrupted by boisterous Black Lives Matter protesters. Her tweet was seconded by CBS News’s Trump reporter, Sopan Deb, whose detailed story appeared under the headline “Black Lives Matter protesters cut off Donald Trump in North Carolina.”
