Quotes: Some politicians have a gift for language. Trump is not one of those politicians. His sentences call to mind an aerial shot of a burning, derailed freight train. The syntax is mangled. The grammar is gone. “Donald Trump isn’t a simpleton, he just talks like one,” reads a Politico article from last August.
The point isn’t whether or not Trump is specifically interested in hurting me or any other journalist. It’s that his comments put us in danger.
Information coming directly from a politician or his team, without being vetted by reporters, is little more than propaganda.

Katharine Bear Tur or Katy Tur for short is an American author and an NBC broadcaster, based in New York City. In her new book titled ‘Unbelievable’, Katy Tur has laid down her experiences when she was covering Donald Trump the candidate for the Presidential Campaign 2016.

She mentions in that book how she had received an unwelcome kiss from Donald Trump on her cheek. This had happened before Trump was due to appear on ‘Morning Joe’. Katy Tur has written:

“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.”

She had hoped that the cameras were not rolling at that time and regretted that she did not have enough time to duck. She felt that this gesture might make her bosses not take her seriously. She was named by Trump as Little Katy and a third-rate reporter. She was booed by his supporters and also received death threats from them.

On the release of her book, Trump immediately tweeted:

“Fascinating to watch people writing books and major articles about me and yet they know nothing about me & have zero access. #FAKE NEWS!”

In an interview during the book launch, Tur mentioned that the unsolicited gesture did not threaten her but she felt that it crossed the professional line. She also said that if Trump reads the book, he might actually like it.
