NH makes Katy Tur a star



The breakout star of the New Hampshire primary was not Amy Klobuchar (horse whinny) who finished third among Democrats. MSNBC afternoon anchor Katy Tur seized the day, said dumb things, and grabbed the spotlight.

Tur has drawn a lot of attention -- all of it negative, but there is no such thing as bad publicity.

RedState reported, "MSNBC’s Katy Tur is perhaps most famous for proclaiming journalists are like firefighters, because after all, reading from a teleprompter and writing articles is totally like risking one’s life to go into a burning building. It was at that moment that the media’s inflated sense of self-importance became undeniably clear and it’s been a basis for parody ever sense.

"Tur also happens to be one one of the more biased journalists out there, using her platform to routinely spin Democratic talking points. Recently, she bemoaned gerrymandering in Senate races, which happens to not be a thing since state lines can not be gerrymandered."

But wait.

There's more.

Then in another segment, she said, ""When I ask people if they’re voting for [POTUS], I hear about their 401(k)s a lot … but there are those out that who don't have a 401(k) and this economy is not really working for them. They can get a car, but it's a loan that will take 30 years."

Given my life expectancy and zero percent interest, I want one of those. Too bad they don't make them.

But she outdid herself when reporting from outside a polling station in New Hampshire when he spotted a man she thought was a Bernie supporter.

Media Research Center transcribed it.

KATY TUR: Well, it depends. There are New Hampshire voters here who are really excited about Bernie Sanders. And they think that he's not divisive and that they think that he's got good ideas and they believe he’s somebody who can accomplish those ideas, they’re the die-hard Bernie supporters. He won this state in 2016.

But then there are those who look at him and say, “I'm just not so sure about him. He kind of scares me. Those ideas are too big. I don't see how he could get them done with this Congress that we have, especially if the Republicans still control the Senate.” They don't see it as plausible.

But I want to talk -- we have a voter out here. Sir, you were watching so you're going to be on television now. Can you tell us who you voted for?

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: Donald John Trump.

TUR: You voted for Donald John Trump.

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: Yeah.

TUR: Bernie Sanders is not appealing to you?

UNIDENTIFIED MAN: The whole ideology would be destructive to the country. It’s anti-growth, it's anti-family. It's anti-American. And as a Roman Catholic, it is anti-life.

TUR: Sir, thank you so much for telling us who you voted for. We appreciate it. Let's ask these other folks over here as well.?

    3. John Wayne had some great advice for Katy Tur: "Life is hard. It's even harder when you're stupid."

    1. I agree. Hard to top that. Bonus: She cribbed that from Jenius Joy Jreid.

    2. I have an acquaintance who tried to argue that point. When I told her you can't gerrymander state lines, she said you could and snidely told me to look it up. My reply: I don't have to, I aced Civics class in high school.

    3. I"m puzzled, how do you gerrymander a state? I would like to see this woman walk and chew gum at the same time.

    2. Keith Olbyloon Olbermann, that's who. He dumped her, or she him, after dating and what not for a time, during his decent into hyper partisan politics. Come to think of it, it says more about Katy Turd then it does Olbyloon. Yep, she's got NO brain.

  4. I got a kick out of Tur's comment about gerrymandering the Senate. I am sure if you shine a flashlight in one of her ear's you will see an unimpeded beam come out the other.

  5. She also can’t tell which is North Dakota and which is Montana, but that’s de riguer. Cue that echoed organ and synth drums: “It’s interesting when people die...”

  8. Interesting that she couldn’t tell a Bernie supporter from a Trump supporter. Great camouflage, sir! Us deplorables have figured out the formulas that will enable us to live our lives in peace. I thank that guy for speaking up, though. He has more courage than I do even if I live in Democrat land - at least it is not San Francisco.

  9. I’m a volunteer firefighter and I feel pity for the brave Ms. Tur. I wasn’t aware she said that.

    I encourage MSNBC to double or triple her airtime, as she does such amazing work for the liberal cause.

  10. I'm going to take the mean angle that Don and his other readers are too gentlemanly to take: When did Katy lose the 'd'?
    She is right about journalists and firefighters, though. Both risk getting their ass burned if they don't do their job properly. The difference is that today's journalists will do it willingly, on camera, again and again and again.
