Trump attempts to bully reporter at rally
It’s not the first time he’s bullied NBC’s Katy Tur.
While speaking to a crowd in Miami, Trump egged on hatred of the media and accused reporters of being “the most dishonest people.”
“There has never been dishonesty like we’ve seen in this election,” he bellowed. “Don’t worry, they won’t spin the cameras and show the kind of massive crowds. They won’t do it.”
“Never before have so many media organizations, old and new, abandoned all pretense of fairness to take sides to try to pick a president,” Trump charged. “It’s unbelievable. For instance, we’ll have a great story. We’ll give it out to the media [and] they’ll make it look as bad as possible.”
“CNN sucks! CNN sucks!” the crowd chanted in response.
“We have massive crowds, there’s something happening,” he opined. “They’re not reporting it.”
“Katy, you’re not reporting it, Katy,” Trump said, pointing to MSNBC’s Katy Tur. “But there’s something happening, Katy. There’s something happening, Katy!”
Tur revealed in an April essay for Marie Claire that the Secret Service had taken steps to protect her after Trump called her out at an event in December.
“It’s unlikely, however, that any of Trump’s future attacks will be as scary as what happened in Mount Pleasant, where the crowd, feeding off Trump, seemed to turn on me like a large animal, angry and unchained,” she wrote. “It wasn’t until hours later, when Secret Service took the extraordinary step of walking me to my car, that the incident sank in.”
