Journalist Katy Tur Recounts Moment Trump Came Out Of Nowhere And Kissed Her

Donald Trump's presidential campaign was largely characterized by his misogyny and inappropriate behavior toward women. In her recently released book about covering Trump's campaign, NBC journalist Katy Tur wrote about an experience in which she was victim to that behavior.

In one chapter of Unbelievable: My Front-Row Seat to the Craziest Campaign in American History, released Tuesday,Tur writes about not just being targeted in Trump's campaign speeches ― which she was, a handful of times ― but about one incident that took place with Trump before a segment on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" with Joe Scarborough.

"Before I know what's happening," she wrote, "his hands are on my shoulders and his lips are on my cheek. My eyes widen. My body freezes. My heart stops."

Immediately after Trump ― who had repeatedly referred to Tur as "Little Katy" throughout his campaign ― kissed her face, Tur's first thought was that she hoped no one saw it.

"Fuck," she wrote. "I hope the cameras didn't see that. My bosses are never going to take me seriously."

For his part, Trump responded to the release of Tur's book in standard form: a tweet to his 38 million followers in which he lambasted her book as "FAKE NEWS."

Among the many signals that Donald Trump sent in his speech to the United Nations on Tuesday, one was especially clear: former chief strategist Steve Bannon's White House departure has not muted the president's "America First" foreign policy instincts. Trump's eight months in office have been characterized by a sometimes dramatic tug-of-war between "globalists" and "nationalist" advisers who have sought to move the president in myriad ways on issues both domestic and international. Bannon's exit last month caused some of the former New York businessman's core supporters to fret that the more multilateral-leaning group inside the administration had gained ground.
