Trump to NBC’s Katy Tur: ‘Be quiet’
The great man didn’t like that a woman questioned his assertion that Russia should hack the U.S.
Donald Trump held a patently absurd press conference this morning, in which he offered that foreign governments should hack Hillary Clinton, asked reporters if they’re familiar with the “n-word,” and referred to John Hinckley—the man who tried to kill Ronald Reagan—as “David.”
As a result, the room seemed tense. Attendant reporters pressed Trump on his casual assertions, and Trump tried to freestyle his way out of trouble. At one point, NBC’s Katy Tur drilled Trump on whether it was appropriate for him to ask—even as a joke—that Russia or China to search for the emails Clinton deleted from her private server. In the midst of a back-and-forth, Trump says to Tur: “Be quiet—I know you wanna, you know, save her.”
