With such a controversial election finally behind us, it’s time for all journalists and media elites to release their personal “memoirs” of their time covering the campaign.
It happens after every election cycle; these clowns thinking that their “insights” and “behind the scenes” perspective of events will earn them a wad of cash.
But it’s not just media folks pumping out the books, as even Hillary is set to release her embarrassing analysis of the election.
Even though these books are a dime a dozen, it doesn’t mean they don’t provide some good laughs and interesting tidbits of information/delusions.
One of the many folks trying their hand at writing is NBC’s reporter Katy Tur, who’s making headlines for an interesting passage accusing Trump of sexual harassment.
As reported at the Independent Journal Review, on Tuesday, Tur’s book hit shelves, and in it, she recounts one of her interactions with the president.
In the book, titled “Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History,” Tur claims Trump was preparing to appear on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when he supposedly gave her a kiss on the cheek.
“Before I know what’s happening, his hands are on my shoulders and his lips are on my cheek. My eyes widen. My body freezes. My heart stops,” Tur writes.
“F**k. I hope the cameras didn’t see that,” she continues, describing her immediate reaction. “My bosses are never going to take me seriously.”
I find it hard to believe that that would be her initial reaction, assuming the story’s true.
Seeing how she’s a dyed in the wool leftist, she probably was thinking how she could use the opportunity to propel herself into stardom, and/or milk Trump with a lawsuit.
But since none of that happened, I’m going to guess this little incident never happened or is being blown out of proportion.
What makes Tur’s claims all the more dubious is the fact she’s had a bone to pick with the president for some time. During the campaign, Trump mocked her for her terrible and inaccurate reporting.
He even started referring to her as “little Katy” and called her a “third-rate reporter.” Harsh maybe, but hey, the truth hurts.
Predictably, the media is making a lot of hay out of this, acting like its another case of Trump harassment of women.
But even if what she said was true, it’s surprising she would take a peck on the cheek as a bonafide kiss, considering it’s a pretty standard way to greet people, especially in elite circles.
I think it’s safe to say if Obama had greeted her in such a way, she’d be gushing about it, not making herself out to be some victim.
Nevertheless, it’s impossible to know if it’s true, especially in light of leftists’ love of smearing folks with false accusations.
It doesn’t really matter what she claims, though; her book will be lining the bargain bin shortly, anyway.
